Melissa & Doug Food Play Giveaway

So, besides the fact that I've mentioned them in yesterday's post, what parent hasn't heard of or used Melissa & Doug puzzles and toys? We've been incorporating them in everyday play for quite some time, but part of what I love as a food blogging mommy is all the fantastic food play options they have. We had the opportunity to feature some elements of the sets we use on a regular basis on a recent guest post over at the Melissa & Doug blog, but the fun doesn't stop there!

Melissa & Doug wooden food products offer fun, creative play for the budding baker with cookie, brownie, cake, cupcake, and other sweet sets.

Have an adventurous eater? Try the stir fry, sushi, or grill sets. (Don't mind the lovely, ancient lap tray). We use food play as a way to encourage new foods too. Who knows? I might have a new date next time I go out for a sushi night! She is already a seaweed and seafood addict, so maybe...

Of course, Melissa & Doug also have several fantastic fridge and pantry item sets, as well as cutting sets, and now felt foods too. And, for the news you've been waiting for... one lucky winner of this giveaway will receive a food play set of their choosing. The winner can choose any food play item found here and priced $19.99 or under. While we are running the giveaway just until Saturday to afford the best chance that your prize will arrive by Christmas, we cannot guarantee that delivery date, so please be aware when entering.

  18. I love the Let's Play House! Grocery Basket with Play Food. It reminds me of when I was little and we used to find random shoe boxes (or similarly sized containers) to go shopping around our house. We didn't have much play food, so we mostly shopped for our toys. We spent HOURS playing store!
