ELC Shopping Basket
Advantages: Useful for role play
We have used this ELC Shopping Basket as part of our role play shop.
We have a red version. The basket is a red colour whilst the handle is a pale blue. The boys like these colours as they are not a girly pink like our cash register.
It is made from plastic which is strong and has stayed in good condition after being dropped over and over again. Being plastic also makes it easy to clean.
It is a nice size which can fit a lot of toy food in. It is smaller than real shopping baskets which is good as that would be too big for children.
There are oval shaped gaps in the basket which makes it look a lot more like the real thing. The holes are quite big but not big enough for food to go through. You could lose toy money (coins) out of the holes though.
The handle is easy to move and doesn't get stuck in certain positions like real shopping baskets occasionaly do.
We have four of these ELC Shopping Baskets in our shop and they can all fit into each other and stack. This makes them a lot easier to store. We usually use them to keep toy food in when not in use.
The children always use these baskets to take things from one place to another. Some of them fill it up with food and take it to their friends at the cash register whilst others fill it and tip it out onto the floor.
The children use there imagination to come up with different uses and some children make it into a bed to carry the toy babies in.
Although we bought it for the shop it gets many different uses which the children enjoy to come up with. This shows how useful they find the toy.
This shopping basket costs £3.20 from Early Learning Centre which is a bargain for such a good quality toy.
