Cup Cake Mini Feeding Set
Advantages: Magic disappearing liquid bottle and cup
Disadvantages: Expensive for the quality
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.
Summary: Might aswell go and buy a set from Poundland!
