Review: Georgie adores role play & imagination games and this breakfast tray is one we have been eyeing up for a while, so we were delighted to find it when we unpacked our latest Play Patrol delivery! With her toy kitchen in daily use James, Lydia & I get made an endless supply of cups of tea, lunches & dinners – and now she can make us breakfast too.
The tray comes with a whole variety of breakfast items on it; with cornflakes, boiled egg, toast, butter and strawberry jam on offer. Cartons of milk and orange juice, a set of cutlery, and beaker, bowl and plate complete the set. In addition to the tray, there are 14 play pieces. The egg comes apart into two pieces, with a yellow velcro yolk sticking the two halves together. The cereal bowl fits into a little circle slot in the plate.
I love the bright colours of this toy and it is nice to see kitchen/cooking role-play toys that are unisex like this one. The designs on all of the pieces make them instantly and easily recognisable.
Georgie has had a great time playing with this. We have eaten a lot of make believe breakfast since it arrived! She really enjoys “pouring” cereal and milk into the bowl and then spoon feeding people their cornflakes. Toast always gets lashings of butter and strawberry jam before being served up on the plate – just how she likes hers!
All of the pieces fit into their own slots on the tray and every shape is unique – even the two cartons are slightly different sizes. This adds a great puzzle solving side to it as your child has to work out where everything goes. None of the round items are the same too, so they each only fit properly into their own specific places. It’s a good chance to talk about the different shapes too, with circles, squares and rectangles galore.
The quality of this toy is very good, each piece feels nice to hold with smooth surfaces.
This breakfast tray makes a great addition to any toy kitchen. 5 stars!
