It was a delight to receive a parcel of play food from Haba for us to try out and review. We are big fans of the well crafted toys that we get sent as ambassadors. This is the selection we were sent on this occasion:
Hamburger and French Fries
The burger bun is magnetic to hold everything together and you can choose from 2 hamburgers, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and cheese to go inside. This stops all the contents from slipping about. It all looks pretty realistic. The fries come in a cardboard box of a similar shape to those in real life fast food restaurants. They cost around £13.95 to buy as a set.
I have noticed that my photograph hasn't got all the contents in it! It came with 1 leek, 2 carrots, 1 banana and 2 tomatoes. No doubt the missing items have been secreted somewhere round the house! My children were especially taken with the peelable banana. Its great to have lots of healthy options for the play food. All of these items are soft for easy handling. The basket is made of wood. This is around £20 from retailers.
This was another fun idea as the fabric fish can be filleted and a plastic bone removed from the inside. A great way to show children about food preparation without all the gore. The fish comes for around £12.
A very realistic looking salami sausage with some pre-sliced sausage for better effect. It even has the string at the top like a proper one. This would set you back around £9.
9 Petit Four Cakes
These looked good enough to eat in their little paper cases. It was pretty mouth watering to look at them in their display box. They would be a wonderful part addition to a tea service or any play food set. They retail for around £15.
All the Haba play foods are very well made and look like they will last a long time. They aren't the cheapest on the market but they are of a very high quality.
