I have had my first toy review request - a tea set! I love these, they are a classic childhood toy and every girl (or boy) needs one. There are all sorts of tea sets available: porcelain, tin, wood, enamelware. The decoration on each set varies widely as well. When choosing a tea set your preference and budget will ultimately determine which one you choose. Here are a few of my favorites:
This Birthday Time Tea Set from Djeco is made of wood. I found it at Oompa.com or Moolka.com, which offers the same set in violet. While beautiful, this set only has two cups and saucers but does come complete with tea bags, sugar cubes, spoons, and even a birthday cake!
This Modern Tea Set is from Schylling, who specialize in classic children's toys. I love the bright colors and ultra-sleek design. This set is porcelain and can also be purchased from Oompa.com.
Another porcelain set from Schylling, this Children's Tea Set offers the classic four cups and saucers, tea pot, creamer, and sugar jar. This is also a great gender-neutral tea set that anyone can enjoy. I found it on Amazon.com.
This adorable 13 piece tea set is very girly and pink! It's the Butterfly Tea Set from Alex Toys, also from Amazon.com. It is less expensive than the others but has all the play value.
The Curious George Tin Tea Set is an example of a tin set from Schylling. While I normally don't like character toys, this one is more gender-neutral and many boys may like it more. Another tin set I just love is Schylling's Summer Bug Tea Set, so check it out, too! Also both from Amazon.
