Great Pretend Play Toys

Pretend play is currently everything in our house. Our daughter will stand at her little kitchen and cook up a meal, or sometimes the occasional pony or dinosaur, then giggle as we sit down and pretend to eat it together. She has also recently discovered the joys of tea parties. I have some suggestions of great toys that will bring joy to your little one and let their imagination run wild.

  1. My nephew loves miniature animals. I think he has a complete set of the farm and zoo animals. And lately, he’s into dinosaurs, so he has a growing collection of that, too! Pretend play is children’s way of making sense of the big world that is why we have a dedicated centre for that in school. 😊
