Toys // Mr Kipling Tea Set Review

At two and a half, H-Bear is really getting stuck into his imagination play, and Busby’s toy kitchen is a big favourite of his. So when we were offered a fantastic Mr Kipling Tea Set to review, I knew it was a toy he would absolutely adore. Because – let’s face it – there really is nothing better than a cup of tea and a slice of cake!

The tea set comes with four cups, four saucers, four cake plates, four teaspoons, four knives and forks, a milk jug, a sugar bowl, a teapot, a cake stand and a selection of Mr Kipling’s famous exceedingly good cakes. Including a cherry bakewell, French fancies, a slice of treacle tart, an apple pie, a jam tart, a piece of battenberg and an angel slice.

I must admit that playing with the set had me running to the supermarket before the school run to stock up on a few cheeky treats…!

The cake stand was very easy to put together (with stickers for the top of the stand).

It’s such a lovely toy, which not only promotes imagination play, but also has a puzzle element. Each cake has a different shaped hole on the base, which can be fitted in the corresponding place on the cake stand.

H-Bear has absolutely adored working out where the cakes go, and spent a good 45 minutes repeatedly taking them off the cake stand, counting the cakes on the picnic blanket, and then finding out where they go on the stand again.

However, I think H’s favourite thing about the set is being able to make me a cup of tea! He spends ages pouring me tea, adding milk and stirring, and then gleefully handing me the cup of tea.

I love the gender neutral colours of the set; it’s very much a ‘play for all’ and the bright colours are gorgeous.

The Mr Kipling Tea Set from Casdon retails at £11.99 and is available to buy from a number of different retailers. It’s been a huge hit with everyone in our family – even Bertie!

    This is gorgeous. One thing that my girls constantly want to make me is a cup of tea and to have a cake stand with cakes, well they would be in heaven x

    Oh this is so cute, I love the bright colours. my daughter would love this, as she loves making tea for everyone, though she does remind us, every time, that it’s only pretend tea!
    The cakes look so amazing, I need a slice of cake now!

    Such a cute toy for a little one! I imagine Dex would love something like this as he loves pretending to feed me yoghurt from his toy kitchen :—)

    Oh Bertie! This looks like such a fab little set but it has very much made me want a cherry bakewell and a french fancy! Oscar’s favourite thing is playing with the toy kitchen so this would be a great addition for him!
