What It Is
What It Is
The Pretend & Play Ice Cream Shop lets kids pretend to run their very own ice cream shop. The set inspires all kinds of creative play with plenty of make-believe accessories—four scoops of ice cream, a sugar cone, a cake cone, a sundae dish, a banana split dish, a banana that "splits" in two, a scooper, two spoons, an apron, a write-and-wipe menu, an ice cream carton, and a chocolate bottle that "squirts" pretend chocolate syrup (It's a brown string.). There are 18 pieces in all.
Why It’s Fun
Kids love to play with pretend food—and few foods are as appealing to kids as ice cream. The Pretend & Play Ice Cream Shop comes with so many great accessories that really help kids engage in open-ended play. We especially like the pretend chocolate syrup because it's creative and whimsical. From creating sundaes to "eating", the Pretend & Play Ice Cream Shop is a great roleplay set for kids who like ice cream.
Who It’s For
The Pretend & Play Ice Cream Shop is for ages 3—5.
What to Be Aware of
The Pretend & Play Ice Cream Shop comes with enough pieces that more than one child can play with the set at a time, helping foster social interaction and cooperative play.
Another thing we really like about this is that while "tea parties" tend to appeal to girls for the most part, ice cream play is completely gender neutral.
