ELC Shopping Basket
Advantages: Good quality
As my girls approached their 2nd birthday my sister asked if they would like some toy food as a present, as this was something I was thinking of getting them I said yes. When they received it she had also got them this Early Learning Centre pink shopping basket to go with it. The basket is also available in red.
Made of pink plastic this basket has holes in it and resembles a supermarket shopping basket in this respect. The plastic is rounded over the top edge ensuring that there are no rough edges that your toddler can hurt themselves on. It is an ideal size for toddlers allowing them to easily handle it.
The basket handle is made of sturdier plastic and is shaped with finger groves to make it comfortable to hold. It is easy to detach the handle from the basket if you need to. I often take ours off as the girls kept hanging it round their necks. As the recommended age is 3 and they are only 2 I think this is the safest option when we aren't all playing together.
Playing with the basket
The main use this basket has is when we are playing shopping. The girls have play food and a toy cash register that allows them to have a pretend shopping trip. They are able to choose food to put in the basket and then go to the till to pay for their items. This is a great role playing game which my girls seem to already enjoy and will get more out of as they get older.
When full the contents are easily visible in this basket and one of my daughters loves being able to go through the basket looking at all the items, the other one prefers to just pic kit up and tip the contents out!
The basket is ideal for storing the girls toy food in when they aren't playing with it, keeping it all together ready for the next time.
Price and availability
This basket is available from the Early Learning Centre for £4, I think this is good value for money.
Would I recommend?
Yes, this basket is a great option when introducing your little one to shopping. Due to one of my girls having a delay with her walking a shopping trolley isn't yet an option for us, it's great that we can use this basket to play shops with and it's already had a lot of use.
Summary: A great addition to any shopping game
