Constructive Playthings Laundry Day Play: Can Laundry be Fun?

I think the best gift I have ever gotten my two daughters is the wooden play kitchen.  They have played with the kitchen and the accessories for countless hours promoting both creativity and imagination.  It is incredibly cute to see the girls mimic my actions and I fear that they are becoming better cooks than I!  So when I had the opportunity to add to the kitchen with Laundry Day Play from Constructive Playthings, I knew they would love it!

About Laundry Day Play from the website:

Grown-up work is child’s play with this 8-pc. pretend laundry set. The simulated washing action in the front loader, steam-like sound effects in the iron and 19″ H. x 24″ L ironing board add realism to the fun. All are in sturdy plastic.

Laundry Day Play When the items arrived, I went to work to assemble the toys.  I was thrilled to see that none of the piece required tools (except placing batteries in the washing machine).  I was able to complete assembly of all items in about 15 minutes…..piece of cake!  Finally, I was able to set it up near the play kitchen and the girls were off to work.  They quickly grabbed doll clothes (and even some of their own clothes) and threw them in the washing machine.  The door really opens and closes and turning the dial “starts” the machine.  The girls loved that the graphic on the front really turns and looks like the machine really works!  I have to admit that I was a bit jealous that my girls have a front loader and I am stuck with my archaic machine!

When my girls deemed the clothes finished, they removed them from the washer and began putting the finishing touches on the outfits by ironing them.  The iron makes real steam noises when pressed!  Finally, my youngest took to hanging the freshly pressed clothes.  So cute!
