I received complimentary product from VTech for review purposes. All opinions are 100% my own.
VTech has one of the largest lines of infant and preschool electronic learning products with over 40 new products introduced just this year. We have a few VTech products already that Buddy really enjoys, so I was delighted to have the opportunity to review the VTech 2-in-1 Shop & Cook Playset.
The VTech 2-in-1 Shop & Cook Playset is a grocery cart and play kitchen in one. With a quick and easy assembly, play time is just a few minutes away after opening the box. Kids can push the grocery cart around, collecting play food along the way from their "shopping list". Once assembled, switching from the grocery cart to kitchen involves just lowering the three sides of the cart. It's so simple, and an easy process that even your youngest can accomplish with ease! And let the "cooking" begin with a stove burner, oven, cutting board, and sink. A place setting is ready on the side too.
This new VTech playset encourages pretend play and exploration while teaching about food, colors, numbers, music, following directions and more. There are three play modes: Pretend & Play, Learning Fun, and Music Time for plenty of different playtime experiences. This playset has lots of audio responses and sounds, and really interacts well with what your child does. For example, the sink sounds like running water when pressed, and the stove "turns on" after sliding the button. I love that it even reminds you to use soap every time you wash your hands too! As a 2-in-1 toy, this playset goes beyond my expectations and has so many neat functions to engage young children.
With my niece's second birthday quickly approaching, I just knew the this playset would be the perfect birthday present for her! But when the VTech 2-in-1 Shop & Cook Playset showed up on our doorstep, Buddy just wouldn't part with it. So, he's been previewing it for his cousin but I have a feeling it will be staying at our house permanently instead.
Initially I thought that the 2-in-1 Shop & Cook Playset would be best for the younger end of the recommend 2-5 age range because the themes and learning opportunities just seem a bit young to me. However, Buddy is almost 5 and he just loves to play kitchen, and is always "cooking" me food and thoroughly enjoys his friend's play kitchen when we visit. This playset has encouraged Buddy to listen and follow the directions he's given, and also given him a creative outlet. He might be a bit tall for it, but he loves it!
Electronic toys play a large part in the learning process of kids these days. It's easy to have screen time overload, so I love the switcheroo of the VTech 2-in-1 Shop & Cook Playset. It's interactive, encourages the imagination, and let's kiddos pretend like there's no tomorrow. VTech will always be welcome in our home.
