What our experts think
Playing ‘shops’ is great for children’s developing communication and imagination. It also helps with their understanding of the world. These realistic toy products are the perfect props for imaginative role play and can prompt discussions on healthy eating and where food comes from. The play can easily be extended by adding in other food items from your own kitchen.
It would be even better if...
the boxes of cereals etc are a bit fiddly to put together but once they are made, it’s a very easy toy for children to play with.
