play food giveaway from gummylump - yum!

It's time for another giveaway! Yeah!


I have little boys, but I also babysit a couple of little girls from time to time. So when Gummylump asked us to review some of their award-winning creative play toys, I chose the Bake & Decorate Cupcake Set. You know, so the little girls who come over will have something to play with. Okay, maybe they were really for me. But the good news is that my 5-year-old son adores this set, too!

We had about 12 birthday parties in a row one afternoon, after which my son proclaimed that I was now 12 years old. Whew! I thought he was going to do the math and make me much older. I guess it's good he doesn't do much math yet. Anyway, it was so delightful to play pretend with him for an hour, and the little girls who come over love it, too.


This is a Melissa & Doug toy, and if you have anything made by Melissa & Doug you probably love them already. The cupcakes, candles, and cupcake pan are all made of wood--something natural in a world of plastic! The "frosting" cap is plastic, but you've got to have that in order to draw on your sprinkles and erase them 50 million times. (I love how the markers are shaped like little tubes of decorator's icing!) There are even cute paper cupcake liners!


The wooden candles stick on the cupcake with Velcro, which makes them easy to remove before eating the cupcake. And you must pretend to eat it, every lip-smacking bite. And be sure to tuck it behind you when you're done, because if that 5-year-old sees it's still in your hand, you'll be enjoying it all over again. But that's the fun, right? You can eat a dozen cupcakes and they're all calorie-free.

Gummylump is letting us giveaway one Melissa & Doug toy up to a $25 value from their site! So you could choose the yummy cupcake set, or one of my other play food favorites like



the ice cream set,


or the pizza party set,


or have the ultimate tea party with the special occasion cake set!


There are more to choose from, too! To enter to win a Melissa & Doug toy up to $25 in value, go to Gummylump's Web site, and leave us a comment telling us which set you'd pick. We'll pick our winner on Friday, November 5, so leave your comment by 11:59pm PT on Thursday, November 4th. Make a wish!

I love the sandwich shop set! And given that my 18-month old son likes to carry plastic lettuce around when he finds it at grandma's house, I think he'd like it too!

Rachel said...

The Ice Cream set is on my kids wish list. So i'd choose that!

Jacqueline said...

I think the cupcakes are my favorite...or the pizza.

I can't decide between the pizza and the stir fry sets... I think the slice and bake cookies are hilarious.
