My daughter has just celebrated her fourth birthday and has received loads of presents as usual, we have such a huge family and no matter how much I beg them not to, they totally ignore me and buy loads of toys.
So I thought I may as well start reviewing some of them.
Her main present for her birthday was a beautiful wooden play kitchen, which is fantastic, and quite a few people whom knew what her main present was going to be, brought her loads of accessories to accompany it.
She was brought a set of play saucepans (Plan Toys item number 34130 Saucepans cooking utensils set). They came in a normal boxed packaging with the picture on the front but inside everything was individually wrapped in protective bubble wrap type sheeting, so no scratches or marks when toys arrived.
Upon opening them I was really impressed, they are made from metal and wood, and are very attractive but still not too heavy that some damage could be done when her brother annoys her!!! Which was a concern, how come if I brought my seven year old son a pink toy kitchen, he would be mortified, but he keeps trying to play with his sisters??? Also I was concerned that being metal they may mark her wooden kitchen, especially as the rings of the cooker are painted on the top and feared it may scratch the paint etc, but there has been no damage whatsoever.
The whole set consists of the following;
* A frying pan with a wooden handle
* A wooden spatula
* A casserole type pot with wooden lid and handles
* A wooden spoon
* Another casserole type bowl, but in smaller size with wooden handles but no lid
I felt size wise as well it was perfect for my daughter, you tend to in some of the play sets around find that the saucepans, casserole dishes/bowls etc can only fit in one piece of play food, but she gets a few bits in her casserole bowl and makes the role play side of things more realistic.
She has played with these saucepans for quite a few weeks now, and I can not see any scuff marks or any signs of damage, and I have seen no downsides to this product.
She has loved this toy and if looked after and with the durability of the product I think she will enjoy these pans for many years to come.
Overall a fantastic product, attractive design, realistic sizing's, good value for money and really great fun for any budding little chef or homemaker!!
