Aah to be a child. For the last couple weeks, my boys (yes even the 2 yr old) have been going through every store flier picking out what they would like for Christmas.
So far Ben has picked somewhat reasonable items. Doug has picked a 50" TV, a couple vacuums, and he told me he needs the Gorden Ramsey Pots and Pans set on TV.
Yeah, I don't think any of those items are on Santa's list!!!
What is on Santa's list are some of the great Learning Resources Toys!!!
I love educational toys, and toys that are not all violence. Both boys love them too.
They have a huge kitchen set that they love, but no pots or pans. Sense Doug asked for Gorden Ramsey's set, I figured this was the next best thing!! I got to review the Pro Chef Set!!
Get cooking with top-chef gear designed to look like the real thing!
Features lots of pieces to encourage imaginative play and build fine motor skills
Includes deluxe stock pot, saucepan, 2 lids, skillet, spatula, wooden spoon, oven mitt, play food (chicken leg, carrot, corncob and fried egg) and write and Activity Guide
Wipe clean with a damp cloth
Largest pot measures 5.5"L x 2.75"H
This is really cute. The pots and pans are light weight, but sturdy enough to handle boys rough play.
The food is also thicker then I expected, so it doesn't break like some other types out there.
I really love the fact that these come with lids. They look just like my dishes, so maybe now the boys will leave mine alone!!!
I am very impressed with yet another toy from Learning Resources.
Right now for the holidays, Learning Resources has a great Holiday Gift Guide, where you can see all the most popular toys they offer. It is worth checking out!!
I am also very excited to be able to offer to one lucky reader the same Pro Chef Set that I got.
This will be a great gift for any young child on your list!!
