Little B has lots of little dolls and loves playing with them. For her birthday last year she received a dolly's feeding set which came in a separate package but along with a doll which was the right size for the feeding set. It is part of the cupcake collection at Early Learning Centre.
In the set you get a few items which are all for feeding the dolly with and also for entertaining dolly too. What I particularly like about it is it's different to other sets- you get a bit more than normal! Included is a little mini bottle which has milk in and when you turn it upside down it vanishes. You also get a little beaker with juice in which is orange and again when you turn it up it disappears magically! You get a little feeding bowl with a spoon and a fork. Then as well you get a little set of keys which Little B says are teething keys and it's really cute.
The quality of this isn't the best I think the fork and spoon are a little flimsy but the keys are brilliant, very robust. Over the months the magic-ness of the juice and milk has ran out, it doesn't work anymore which is a shame but I remember the same things happening with my own things like this when I was younger so I guess it's just the nature of this product.
Little B really enjoys playing with these, it's nice that she can use them to make her dollies okay and when she plays house she really gets involved using these. It's very cute watching her.
They are small so they don't really go with her bigger dolls but for the little ones and also for some teddies these are just fine. Pretty pleased!
My grandchildren love playing with dolls. I keep buying more little bits to go with them to keep them happy and occupied. This little feeding set I bought from The Early Learning Centre about a year ago.
The cupcake set is a collection of dolls with little accessories that The Early Learning Centre make. My grandchildren have a few things from this collection and we have been happy with the majority of them so far.
When my granddaughter had chicken pox last year I bought her this little feeding set to go with her dolly to cheer her up. In the set you get a little feeding bowl with a spoon and a fork, a little cup of juice which 'disappears' when you turn it upside down, a small bottle of milk and a little set of keys for dolly to play with.
They are all made from plastic so easy enough to keep clean and are all small so the right size for the cupcake dolly that my granddaughter has.
The only fault I have with them is that the juice doesn't disappear very well anymore so I think that could be improve which is a shame.
Everything else works perfectly fine and my grandchildren love using their imaginations with this as they sit dolly in a chair and pretend to feed her. I particularly like the little set of keys that it comes with. I know this doesn't have anything to do with feeding but they are really very cute and not so different from a real version we have!
I think for £6 this is a reasonable price. All rather good quality and go well with the cupcake range that we already have.
It was my daughters third birthday at the beginning of this month. One of the presents she received from my mum was this cup cake mini feeding set from Early Learning Centre. I would normally wait to review my daughters toys until she has played with them for a few months but as this set is so rubbish I thought I'd review it now to stop some people wasting their money!
The set costs £6 and is available to buy from the normal places you find Early Learning Centre products such as Mothercare and Amazon. It is recommended for children over the age of three years old.
The set comes inside a transparent plastic travel bag, this bag is made to a brilliant quality, the transparent plastic that makes up the main bag is the thick plastic you can get which makes it hard to misshape it. It has the same branding as all the other Early Learning Centre cup cake products printed on the front. Inside the bag are six different items that make up the mini feeding set.
The six items inside are where the feeding set starts to lack in terms of value for money. There is a spoon, a fork, a feeding bowl, a milk bottle, a juice bottle and a rattle included inside. As it's a mini feeding set the items really are mini. The fork and spoon are around 4 centimetres long and not even a centimetre wide, I find it really difficult to get a good grip on it and even my daughter, with smaller hands, finds it difficult to 'feed' her babies using these and tends to use the cutlery she has from another set as it's a little more chunky. The bowl is around 5cm in width and has two separate sides like you get in baby bowls, this isn't that bad in terms of quality, it doesn't feel flimsy at all. The bottle and juice cup both have the 'magic' liquid inside that disappears when it is turned upside down. My daughter loves these types of bottles so they have gone down a treat with her but at the same time they are really small, the bottle is about 3-4cm high and the juice cup is only around 2-3cm high. The rattle is minuet, It has three keys on a ring, the keys are only 1-2cm long so it really is mini.
My daughter hasn't been that fussed by this mini feeding set, the quality of most of the items are similar to that of something you would buy in a discount shop like the 99p shop or Poundland. I certainly wouldn't pay £6 for this. I know it's meant to be a mini feeding set but it really is tiny, perhaps if the items inside had more of a chunky feel to them they would have a better quality. Saying all of that though, the milk bottle and juice cup do get used by my daughter quite a lot but £6 for just these items being used is a little on the expensive side.
I wouldn't recommend this set, for £6 you can buy a better quality set from elsewhere. The cheap quality of the set isn't like Early Learning Centre and I think this is the first toy my daughter has had from here that I haven't been happy with.
