Preschoolers love to play pretend and a popular activity for children of both sexes is making meals with play food. If you’re looking for something a bit more appealing than the cheap plastic food sets from Wal-Mart or Target, you can find adorable felt food in the Little Picklepotamus Etsy shop.
This great shop has handmade felt food that will make your mouth water. You can find watermelon wedges, cookies, carrots, banana, apples, pancakes, cinnamon rolls, pizza, and more. All of the items are wonderfully detailed, brightly colored, and guaranteed to stand up to several years of use.
If you’re looking for a great Christmas gift idea, I love the starter felt food set featured in this post. This set contains everything you need to stock a play kitchen and is priced to offer a 20% savings over buying all of the items individually.
Another cool gift idea would be to fill a picnic basket or box with felt versions of all of your child’s favorite foods. Mindy King, the owner of Little Picklepotamus, does custom orders upon request.
Little Picklepotamus items are handmade in a smoke-free, pet-free home. A portion of the profits is donated to Operation Christmas Child, an organization that sends shoe boxes of small toys and personal care items to children in developing countries around the world.
I think this is wonderful because by ordering an item to give to your own child, you’re also helping to bring a bit of Christmas cheer to a needy boy or girl.
What do you think of the felt food from Little Picklepotamus? Is this something your child would enjoy playing with?
