Melissa and Doug Giveaway from Gummy Lump

Photobucket Even though I am an incredibly bad example, my two daughters love to play chef in their pretend kitchen.  They can spend hours using their imaginations and working together to create a fabulous fake meal.

With all of the pretend food we have in their kitchen, the Melissa and Doug wooden sets are by far their favorite.  We currently own the pizza, fruit, cookie and cupcake sets and now, thanks to Gummy Lump, we now have the Special Occasion Cake set, too!

Because we have owned several Melissa and Doug items, I can personally attest to the durability of the products.  The wooden sets hold up so much better than their plastic counterparts.  And the sets are incredibly cute, too!  The Velcro pieces allow the kids to “cut” the fruits and “slice” a piece of cake to serve whoever wants to play.

The Tiered Special Occasion Cake set is particularly fun for them because they can decorate the cake however they wish to make a few different looks.  From the website:

Your little host will be proud to present these three layers of “delicious” yumminess. This fabulous cake can be topped with a bride and groom for a formal pretend wedding or with a flower bouquet to celebrate any special event. Serving and assembling this confection is easy with all the wooden layers, a selection of toppings, a server and decorative cake plate included in the “bakery” box.

Gummy Lump, one of my favorite online toy stores, carries a ton of the Melissa and Doug play food.  In fact, if you buy three sets, you get the fourth one for FREE!  If you have many children to buy holiday gifts for, this is the perfect way to save a little money.  Many of the Melissa and Doug sets can be found on Gummy Lump for under $20 including the Special Occasion Cake Set!


Does your little one like to play chef?  One reader will win the Melissa and Doug Special Occasion Cake Set from Gummy Lump!
