Prior to our move, while decluttering our home and staging children’s bedrooms, I went through our oldest daughter’s play kitchen accessories. We had already donated her play kitchen because it had been moved to the outdoor patio and we were planning to surprise little sister with an upgrade in her new play loft. Although we no longer had the kitchen, we did have a big basket full of plastic food, utensils and pans. Like the kitchen, they should have been tossed out years ago but little sister couldn’t bear to part with her favorite pretend play toys. I quietly emptied the basket in our recycling bin and went on a mission for wooden toys that would be a much safer and cleaner option for our new home. I received a complimentary dessert stand and tea party set from Cubbie Lee, a wooden toy company that offers affordable educational toys that are built to last. Little sister was so excited to discover her kitchen and play food in our new home and I’ve enjoyed watching the pretend play and her creativity thrive with a vivid imagination.
The dessert stand and tea party set is designed for endless play but also helps develop fine motor skills and teaches sharing. The cakes can be “cut” and separated while the stackable desserts provide an opportunity for the best culinary creations in your child’s play kitchen. The wooden toys are certified safe and non toxic with no choking hazards making them excellent for small children.
My daughters are six year apart in age and couldn’t have more different personalities. Big sister is always focused and enjoys structure. She follows rules and walks into every situation with a well thought out plan. Little sister is the little light of sunshine that glows brightly from the moment she wakes up until she finally tucks herself under her covers and whispers, “today was the best day ever,” and nods off to sleep. She sees the good in everything and every moment is an opportunity for play. She spends hours in her play kitchen and has a very long list of favorite dolls and animals to invite over for tea parties. She uses her play phone to call 10 of her favorite play friends each morning, invites them down the hall to her kitchen, then happily shares the guest list to her fabulous tea party. Mr. Penguin, the penguin backpack her big sister received as a holiday gift from SeaWorld San Diego years ago, and the big bear Santa left in our living room last year are frequent guests at the daily parties.
She carefully cuts cake and serves the best hot tea. Sometimes she adds cinnamon, chocolate syrup and even marshmallows. Bear always wants seconds and little sister happily serves her play friends for hours.
The Cubbie Lee 30 day guarantee and 5 year warranty ensures every purchase from the family business will be loved. Do you enjoy observing magical tea parties in your home too?
