Growing Tree Toys: Review

hypothesis The Slice and Bake Cookie Dough Set by Melissa and Doug from Growing Tree Toys will be great way to foster pretend play in both of  my daughters and will require them to work together to create the perfect cookie!

materials The Slice and Bake Cookie Set by Melissa and Doug (which includes 12 sliceable cookies, 18 toppings, oven mitt, spatula, knife and baking sheet), and two girls ready to bake in their little kitchen.     About Growing Tree Toys:

results About two years ago, we purchased a little wooden play kitchen for our oldest daughter, Lily.  She has always loved it, but now, with the birth of our second daughter, the two girls play in the kitchen constantly.  They loved to create new recipes and serve my husband and I their fabulous creations.  So, when Growing Tree Toys provided me with the opportunity to select a toy for review, I knew the girls would just love the Melissa and Doug Slice and Bake Cookie Set.


Growing Tree Toys provides a huge selection of educational toys, and I certainly believe that pretend play is a wonderful way to learn about the world around you.  The girls had a great time slicing the roll of cookie dough, arranging the sliced cookies on a baking sheet (held in place by velcro), placing the cookies in the oven, decorating the baked cookies and serving them to anyone who was willing to pretend with them.  The looks of pride on their faces as we all commented on how much we loved the cookies made this toy an absolute HIT in our home.



We absolutely loved the Melissa and Doug Slice and Bake Cookie Set!  Because the toy is wooden, I know it will last for a very long time!  Growing Tree Toys offers a wide variety of toys to suit boys and girls of all interests.  Check out this adorable doll house and this toy violin!

This review is the opinion of The Experimental Mommy. Other may have a different experience with the product. Thank you to Growing Tree Toys who provided the product for review. I was not compensated in any way except for the complimentary product.
