Mouth watering. Delicious. Scrumptious. These are just a few words to describe the delectable new trend in play food! Play food has been around for decades but in recent years there has been a trend toward desserts and tasty treats! Play food toys have always been great fun for kids, but now with this explosion of cupcakes, pastries, cookies, ice cream, pies and cakes - play food has taken on a
whole new fun factor!
Let's face it. Most parents limit the amount of sweets a child gets to eat. Probably because of that, and the fact that the real thing tastes so good, children are immediately attracted to toys that let them have their very own desserts. And not
just any desserts, these play food desserts can be decadent!
Let's take the example of the play food cupcakes set by Melissa & Doug. This top selling play food toy contains 4 wooden toy cupcakes, 4 cupcake toppers that can be decorated with the include 3 dry erase "frosting" markers, 4 decorative play candles, 4 cupcake baking cups, a cupcake baking pan, and even an oven mitt. Not only is there great play value with "baking" and serving the cupcakes, but this play food toy takes on a creative flair with these cupcakes because you actually "frost" them with the special included
markers that look like icing tubes! Incredibly fun!
In fact, as of right now Melissa & Doug have eight wooden play food sets that are just desserts: their famous
birthday cake, their new tiered special occasion cake, their new brownies play food set, their new donuts play food set, their ever popular ice cream parlor set, their best selling slice and bake cookies play food set, their new apple pie, and the fore mentioned cupcakes set.
