“ Brand: Asda „
We picked this set up from B and M a few months before Christmas and it cost £5.99 which is a decent price, my 3 year old had it in her head that she really wanted to buy something so I let her buy this as it is great for make believe play.
The set came wrapped in plastic wrap and had a cardboard tag on it just with the address of the makers, a barcode to be able to buy it and a warning that the set is not suitable for children under 3. I have played with this set with the 1 year old girl that I mind for and under supervision there is no reason she can't play with it but I would never let her play with it on her own.
The set contains a grey plastic draining board tray, it has a closed in little square in the corner so that the cutlery can be put in there and then it has three sections which are more open like a real dish tray to stack the dishes into. The set comes with a pan with see through lid, a ladle for serving, a spatula for cooking, 4 sets of cutlery, 4 plastic tumblers, 4 plates and 4 bowls.
The set of fours are all in the same colours, you have red, blue, yellow and green, I think the colours are good as they are not aimed at one sex or another which now a days a lot of toys seems to be. All the pieces are made of hard plastic and they seem pretty strong although there are some teeth marks in some of the cutlery where Emily has forgotten she is only pretending.
The set is loads of fun and Emily uses it with other things we have such as the play kitchen or pretend food and she makes us all meals which I think is lovely. She can be really funny at times and we all have to have matching colours of everything so my husband winds her up swapping things around so they don't match.
A game that keeps her quiet for ages is to give her a bowl of water and a tea towels and she will wash all the items and stack them on her drainer and then dry them all before starting again.
The set is great for little ones imagination and I think it was well worth £5.99, the set is brightly coloured and pretty strong. The only slight drawback is because it has no box there are a lot of pieces so you need something to keep it in, we have a set of toy drawers so ours just goes in there when not in use.
