My 4-year old LOVED playing bakery! She was always cooking up sweets and taking orders. The problem was all we had were 2 fake ice cream cones! So, for Christmas last year (2016) I found these AMAZING Learning Resources Smart Snacks Shape Sorting Cupcakes on Amazon!! Honestly, for the price, I wasn’t expecting much and I thought they were going to be pretty small, and made of cheap plastic, but, I was very surprised when they arrived and I saw them in person!
They are made of a rubber material and a lot bigger than I had expected!
There are many different ways you can play with these cupcakes, that is what makes them so much fun. You can use them for imaginative play. You can take the icing off and then you match the icing back with the correct shape!
You can also match the shape on the bottom of the cupcake with the holder in the tray, They come with a very nice tray to keep them in! You can talk about colors with these cupcakes too! My now 6-, 4-, and 2-year olds play with these cupcakes EVERY day!! I even love playing with them! All this play while learning shapes, colors, and some fine motor in there too!! It’s a win all the way around!!
I can honestly say after almost a YEAR these are still getting a lot of playing time by all three of my kids and they look brand new! They are very durable!
If you have a play kitchen these are a must have addition and would make a great Christmas or Birthday gift for any child! I would say the target age range on this toy would probably be 1-7 years old.
