Our kids love playing with their toy kitchen (yes, it is the ubiquitous Ikea Duktig play kitchen; and no, it has not, alas, been pimped). Over the years we've amassed a fair few bits of play food to go with it - some inherited, some gifted, a few picked up in the sales. But if we could do it all again, these eleven sets are the ones I'd make sure to get!
1. Melissa and Doug Sushi Slicing Playset
Tidlo Cutting Vegetables Set
Hape Garden Salad
Le Toy Van Honeybake Fresh Fish
Hape Hamburgers and Hotdogs set
Le Toy Van Dotty Kettle
Traditional Tea Party Biscuits
Erzi Fishfingers in a Tin
Emma Bridgewater Children's Polka Dot Tea Set
Le Toy Van Honey Bake Toaster Set
So there you have it, our nowhere near exhaustive list of the best play food around. What we've found when buying play food is that our kids like interactive elements and familiar themes. These particular ones suit us - I'd love to know what works for you!
