Become a Chef with Melissa and Doug Play Sets {Giveaway}

We all know that I am no chef.  My culinary skills are lacking and I often look for help in the kitchen.  When I decide to take on a new recipe, I need to focus and give it complete concentration.  While I love for my kids to join me in the kitchen, they can certainly be more of a distraction than a help.  However, both of my girls love to play “restaurant” in the pretend kitchen.

I have purchased Melissa and Doug play food sets in the past and instantly fell in love.  The wooden pieces are durable and easy to clean while being realistic, too.  The girls love the Velcro pieces that they can really cut and whip up a masterpiece.  But before you can cook, you need to look the part, right?  The Melissa and Doug Chef Role Play Dress Up for Kids Set from Gummy Lump turned my kids into Master Chefs in minutes!  About the set:

With a machine-washable chef jacket and hat, get ready for some yummy treats when your little chef is in the kitchen. This set is complete with a set of measuring spoons, three essential wooden utensils, an oven mitt, and a name tag for personalizing.

My youngest couldn’t wait to be the lead Chef and wear the hat!  She is four years old and the set fit her well.  I was impressed with the durability of the fabric, the quality of the construction and the fact that it is machine washable, too.  The wooden accessories and customizable name tag make this a special set at just $23.99

Now that she was dressed the part, she was ready to create the perfect sandwich with Melissa and Doug play food.  About the Sandwich Shop:  “Stack your sandwich the way you like it with the 16 “fixins” in this wooden sandwich kit. Use the wooden knife to slice apart the pieces–a satisfying “crunch” sound tells you your ingredients are fresh! The included wooden storage tray is perfect for keeping it all organized between meals.

My daughter quickly got to work taking orders and making the most delicious pretend sandwich in NOLA!  I opted for the hamburger with Swiss and pickles.  It was great fun to watch the girls work together in a sandwich assembly line!  This set is only $15.99 and worth every penny.
