It Smells Like Warm Sugar Cookies All Through Our House...Or We Can At Least Pretend That It Does...

I love watching my kids play pretend! I personally don't think they do near as much of it as my sister & I did when we were little, but we didn't have all the modern technological conveniences that there are now, to distract little imaginations from growing and flourishing. So when the opportunity arises where I actually can watch them in pretend play, I think it takes me back to my childhood a little too! My sister and I could play for hours...Barbies, Duke's Of Hazzard, etc. Didn't matter, we could make up our own little stories and play! My mom must have felt so lucky to have all that quiet time to herself (lol)!GummyLump carries all kinds of wooden toys and building blocks. The thing I like most about their products is that they all require using some imagination & creativity! Children get to express themselves through creative play & I love that! They also carry a huge range of Melissa & Doug products. If you have never bought any of their things before, you TRULY must consider for this Christmas season!
Much to my excitement, a package arrived with Melissa & Doug's Slice & Bake Cookie Set inside (sent to us free of charge). ADORABLE! I felt a tinge (just a tinge) of jealously that I wasn't 5 years old anymore. This was something I would have "ate up" literally as a child! The set comes with an oven mit, a cookie sheet, a faux knife, a spatula, a cookie tube, 12 cookies and 12 self stick toppings. What child wouldn't have a blast playing with this set?
video videoSo I let my kids have at it...and you can imagine the fun things that were in store. They loved the fact that the frosting tops came off, so they could pretend to decorate the cookies (something they love doing in real life). They could also pretend that the cookie sheet was "HOT" and take the cookies off the sheet just like mommy does with real ones! A bonus...all of the parts should last forever if they are cared for right. Since they are made out of wood and not plastic, they should withstand the "normal play" wear and tear like a pro!

i loved M&D toys and we have lots: band in box, pizza set, bday party set, puzzles, etc. the slice and bake cookies here has been recalled in canada with 2 other M&D toys. so now I am skeptical of the safety of this toy. it is however, very adorable, so that is a shame.
