My kids love to play kitchen and make meals for us, but one thing they didn’t have was a picnic basket. They would push around the one shopping cart we have to bring meals throughout the house. I guess I just never saw a picnic basket I really liked for them, until I of course found the one by Learning Resources.
Everything little ones need for a perfect picnic!
Includes 15 pieces: durable plastic basket with handles, 2 divided plates, 2 mini-hamburgers (buns and patties), 2 watermelon wedges, 2 cupcakes, and ketchup and mustard bottles that “squirt.”
This picnic basket is first off adorable! It is the perfect size for little hands to carry and fits just enough inside for them. Since its cold out now, we have been having picnics inside and my kids think its so cool. With the set you get enough food for two plates worth plus the basket and condiments. I like how the meals include a piece of fruit and a treat in addition to the hamburger. The food is also not the cheap flimsy food that you buy a 50 piece set for $5 – it is a more durable plastic/rubber material. This food is definitely strong enough to last many playtime meals. The ketchup and mustard even have a string that you can push in or pour out to stimulate real ketchup/mustard pouring out. My favorite though is the cute little basket. It has become my 18 month old’s carry all for everything. From play food to My Little Pony’s to book, she loves her basket. I would recommend this set for any mom looking for a new toy for their child’s play kitchen or something fun for outside play. Its also gender neutral which is nice!
