TimetoPlayMag.com Ratings and Reviews
At TimetoPlayMag.com, we want to engage, inform and entertain our readers to give them the benefit of our knowledge, experience and the breadth of products we cover. We look at more than 10,000 new toys and children’s products every year, and our primary purpose is to help you make the best choices for the kids in your life.
Our goal is to give you the real story on what you’ll find when you bring a toy home. And we know that every kid and every family is different. That’s why we always say: “The hot toy is only hot if it’s hot for your child.”
Our editorial team has more than 100 years combined experience working in the toy industry. Our rating system ranks toys on 4 key criteria:
- Fun — Does it engage the child? Does it inspire imaginative play? Does it contribute to creative expression? Is it entertaining?
- Repeat Play OR Collectibility — Some toys are played with, some are collected. If we feel a toy is better suited for collectibility, we’ll rank it based on Collectibility instead of Repeat Play.
- Repeat Play — Will kids come back to it over time? Does the toy allow diverse imaginative play experiences? Does it provide longer-term play value?
- Collectibility — Some toys may have limited traditional play, but kids will treasure them as collectibles.
- Assembly/Instructions — Is the toy easy to assemble? Are the instructions clear?
Over the years we’ve learned a lot about what makes great toys and exciting play experiences. We want to help you create the best experiences for your kids and your family.
Ultimately, you’re the best judge of what you want to bring into your home — and what’s best for your kids. And because you’re an important part of the Time to Play family, we invite you to let us know if you ever find an error or have any ideas how we can better help you. After all, we exist for one reason: to help you have more fun!
What It Is
Cookie Monster's Letter Lunch is a playset where kids can make food and letters out of Play-Doh. Kids can even "feed" Cookie Monster the play food. Tilt Cookie Monster's head back to open his mouth and put the "food" inside. Then close his mouth. The "food" falls down Cookie Monster and can be retrieved through a hole in Cookie Monster's back. The three-piece playset set comes with 26 letter molds, a play mat, a bowl with lid, a presser, a plastic knife, a plastic spoon, a plastic fork, a roller, and four two-ounce cans of Play-Doh.
Why It’s Fun
C is for cookie but with this playset Cookie Monster shows kids there are other foods out there. From hamburgers to vegetables to alphabet soup, kids will have a lot of fun "cooking" up items for Cookie Monster to eat. This playset is great for helping kids build letter recognition, matching skills, and fine motor skills.
Who It’s For
Cookie Monster's Letter Lunch is for ages 3 and up. Kids with an interest in cooking will really like pretending to be a chef with this playset.
What to Be Aware of
Sesame Workshop has been very concerned that Cookie Monster not become associated with bad eating habits. While we think this is a little bit of overkill, kids won't really care. They'll have a lot of fun making the food and feeding it to Cookie. It's really up to parents to control kids' diets.
Some assembly of this playset is required.
For children with allergies, Play-Doh is made with wheat.
