With so many fancy high-tech toys on the market today, finding the right toy sure to bring a smile to your kid’s face is hard. As so often proves true, however, there’s a reason some toys are considered classics. Take the tea set, for instance. This simple concept in itself has the capacity for endless variations, from your little girl’s first full set of fine china (or plastic), to a modest cup and saucer for the toughest two-year-old boy.
The possibilities today are endless! Fisher Price Toys is one well known kid-tested, mother-approved company with a tradition of producing beautiful toys for kids that are sure to last.
Their sturdy, hard plastic construction gives them the durability to endure even the mad hatter’s terrible two’s. Plastic tea sets, picnic baskets, and groceries are easy to find in almost any store that sells toys.
But be warned: not all companies use as strong a plastic as Fisher Price. Accelerated rates of production with emphasis on quantity over quality leaves parents buying their children the same pretend toy sets year after year, just to maintain what they already have!
With the new emphasis on going green and reducing our carbon footprints, it’s no wonder that many parents are starting to favor wooden toys and tea sets instead.
And as your grandparents will attest, wooden toys make an excellent choice. Wooden toys are built sturdier than even the strongest plastic alternatives, and are hand-carved and sure to last. So go ahead: pound those plates off the table, throw them against the wall, fill them with mud pies. A wooden set will bounce back from all these abuses -though the same can’t be said for your walls or furniture!
These tea party toys and other toy food items are a great gift for young children still at home or just starting school, and are often found in waiting rooms or even Children’s museums. They’re a great way to spark your child’s imagination in a way that allows them to mimic the grown-up world around them.
Just type in “tea set” on any online search engine, and the results will overwhelm you! With so many possibilities, you’re sure to find that perfect set for any child!
