Melissa & Doug Wooden Bake and Decorate Cupcake Set Pretend Play Food Ages 3+
Be sure your little baker uses the oven mitt to remove these 4 delectable-looking wooden cupcakes from their cupcake baking tray. This special set has 3 dry-erase markers shaped like icing tubes to decorate the smooth, removable, wipe-off cupcake tops. With colorful baking cupcake sleeves and decorative wooden candles, these low-cal cupcakes will be the hit of birthday and tea parties! PERFECT FOR LEARNING: Through make-believe play, children learn to understand the world around them, build vocabulary, and develop important social skills as they repeat the actions and rituals of the adults around them. This innovative play set lets kids re-enact an everyday activity--preparing food in the kitchen--in a best-of-the-everyday context: a birthday party! The multi-step activity works toward a specific goal (completing a decorated cupcake), which keeps kids engrossed and enhances focus. Lots of options along the way (Which topping where? What should I draw?) encourage creativity and problem solving too. And fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination get a workout as children place each cupcake in its sleeve, place the toppers and candles, color with the pens, and lift the cupcakes out of the pan.
A hit at make-believe parties, the Melissa and Doug Bake and Decorate Cupcake Set encourages creative expression while teaching fine motor skills. Recommended for ages three and up, this set has everything a child needs to play pastry chef. Kids will enjoy hours of imaginative fun as they decorate the cupcakes with the included icing markers. And they'll love how the cloth oven mitt, plastic muffin tray, and paper cupcake sleeves add a touch of authenticity to this charming play set.
