Growing-up I had an extensive collection of play food. One of my favorite ways to spend an afternoon was to gather all of my faux edibles around me and write a menu of everything that I could possibly serve from various combinations of plastic bread, alphabet soup, and muffins.
My collection pales in comparison though to the incredible food toys that are available now. For instance this lifelike Cafe Barista Set features sound effects that will allow your little one to hear beans grind, milk froth, and water boil. They’ll have hours of fun serving mommy and daddy various lattes and muffins. Who knows, perhaps they’ll even let you put your feet up and enjoy a few stolen moments on your laptop all in the spirit of coffee shop play?
