Summer is ice cream time and my kids have been serving up non-stop ice cream ever since they got their Learning Resources Pretend Play Ice Cream Shop. “What kind of ice cream do you want?” they ask me over and over with the biggest grins! “Do you want it on a bowl or in a cup?” You can’t believe the great pretend prices I get on these extravagant pretend play ice cream indulgences! It is great pretend play time for about kindergarten aged children and it is also a great way to teach toddlers to share.
I was provided with the Pretend & Play Ice Cream Shop in order to facilitate review. I received no monetary compensation and the opinions expressed are my own.
Pretend & Play Ice Cream Shop Review:
I have to say that I was surprised by how much they love this set. I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised considering they have always liked to order and deliver pretend food. My 4 year old and 6 year old are always offering me the ice cream menu and letting me pick what they serve up! They really like to play with it and I am impressed at how sturdy the design is on all the elements. They really enjoy using their imagination and serving their dolls too. It is also a great time for me to start their math skills. “If I ordered two and they each cost one dollar, how much do I owe you?”
The Learning Resources Pretend & Play Ice Cream Shop Set has all the accessories your kids could need to really get into the role play!
The Ice Cream Shop Set Includes:
- 4 scoops of ice cream
- sugar cone
- cake cone
- sundae dish
- banana split dish
- “splittable”(velcro in the middle) banana
- ice cream scooper
- 2 spoons
- write & wipe menu
- ice cream carton
- bottle that “squirts” pretend chocolate syrup (with a mess-free brown string)
The set includes plenty of pieces so several children can role play together. This type of pretend play develops hand-eye coordination and cooperation.
This ice cream set also goes great with a toy cash register so they can ring you up after they make your order! I love watching my kids role play ordering and serving each other. It is actually a great way for them to practice improving their social skills and manners.
Do you kids enjoy pretend play? Do you think they would get a kick out this pretend play ice cream set? Mine sure did! Visit Learning Resources and leave a comment with a favorite toy!
