This review is from: Melissa & Doug Birthday Party (Toy)
This is a really nice toy - well made in traditional styling. All of the pieces are attractively coloured and made out of good quality beautifully finished wood.
Birthdays are a favourite role-play activity for the preschool children I work with and this little set really supports their interest well: allowing them to imagine all kinds of birthday scenarios, practice sharing, turn taking, customise their own cakes and even practice their basic maths skills (counting the segments, the candles, and different kinds of toppings they want on their cake).
The set comes in a nicely made wooden storage tray, complete with compartments for storing the candles and topping pieces. The only thing more you could have really asked would have been a lid for the top of the storage tray, to help ensure that the pieces are kept safely.
