Pretend Play For Kids – Brio Red Stove and More

Most little girls have the dream of being a mum, feeding their baby and dressing up pretty. Actually no scrap that. A lot of toddlers, boys and girls, love pretend play.

I have written about why pretend play is vital for children previously on the blog, you should read it!

Brio Red Stove Review

Brio red stove review

I know so many boys that enjoy playing ‘mums and dads’ just as much girls do. They look after their baby, go to work and even cook ‘dinner’ for their family. My son used to pretend he was a dad all the time, he also had a passion for cooking and he mimicked my husband and I every chance he got. (We are both chefs).

My 2 year old daughter has recently discovered her love for food and ‘cooking’. She fills up containers and uses utensils to make her creations but longed for a kitchen that was small enough for her to reach without the use of a chair.

This wish of hers came true when the most adorable Brio red stove was set up to surprise her when she arrived home from child care. She squealed with joy and has barely played with anything else since.

The Brio red stove comes flat packed but seriously only takes a couple of minutes to put together and requires only 2 screws! It was so easy to build.

The stove features a classic look and inspires role play in children. Offering a realistic appearance for children; the oven door opens, the regulator moves and the buttons turn with a clicking sound.

The stove top and oven is large enough that your child can put a few pots, small cupcake tray or as my daughter has proven – a fair chunk of her toy box inside!

I love the size of this Brio stove and oven because it isn’t overly large like the standard ones you see. This is more compact and perfect for toddlers and those with limited space in their homes. Approx. measurements: 51cm H x 30cm D x 41cm W.

Brio Motion Wobbler

Finding fun toys for babies that are durable and safe are hard to find. Especially if you want something affordable!

The Brio motion wobbler is fantastic and will have your baby engaged with its bright colours and the sound that is made each time the toy wobbles. Don’t be alarmed though at the thought of noise, this toy is quiet and offers only a gentle sound as the yellow ball taps the sides of the wobbler.

Another benefit is that it requires no batteries! The Brio motion wobbler is an educational infant toy that has been designed to help develop baby’s senses.

Both of these products are Brio and after seeing the stove and motion wobbler shown above, I am surprised that I had never heard of the brand before now. They offer amazing products that are designed with a child’s best interest at heart and the quality cannot be faulted.

I am so glad parents have the option of trustworthy children and baby products like these. Childsmart provides parents a one stop shop for educational, fun and great quality products, check them out on their website, facebook and instagram.
