This set includes 9 wooden pretend-play dry good items that could typically be found in a home kitchen pantry. The set of wooden pieces includes a box of pasta, can of soup, bottles of ketchup and mustard, box of sugar, crackers and cereal, bottle of salad dressing, and a can of tuna – for those days when the cupboard is nearly empty. These durable pieces are brightly colored and clearly labeled. Pretend-play and modeling have been shown through research to be a critical part of a child’s normal cognitive and social development. It has been suggested that pretend-play early in life likely leads to increased creativity later in life. Bring these toys into your home and let your little one get creative in their very own pretend-kitchen. This item is intended for children ages three and older.
