Are your kids eager eaters, or do they tend to be a little picky? Whatever a child’s view of the daily menu, food-centered play can help expand a child’s imagination, build his or her confidence, and even encourage them to try new foods. Why not explore the first meal of the day with a little breakfast play time!

You might want to start your breakfast play time with a mug of fresh coffee from the adorable Melissa & Doug Wooden Brew & Serve Coffee Set. Lift the lid, drop in a coffee pod, and turn the dial to your desired coffee strength. Use the creamer and sugar to blend the perfect cup! If iced coffee is more your style, add the blue ice cube.

Want some toast with your coffee? Drop the bread into this wooden Bread & Butter Toaster, turn the dial to the desired darkness, and push down the lever. When ready, pop out your toast, slice some butter, and place it on the bread. A simply delicious idea!

If fresh fruit sounds good for breakfast, you’ll love our colorful Cutting Fruit wooden play set, with a wooden crate and seven pieces of sliceable fruit. Each fruit section makes a playful “CRUNCH” sound when sliced, bringing extra fun to breakfast play time. With so many colorful fruit pieces, healthy breakfast play is always in season!

For those who prefer a heartier breakfast, our menu includes pancakes and waffles. Cook and flip the pancakes on the play skillet, or press and cook the waffle in its wooden waffle iron. When everything is ready, put the finishing touches on your breakfast creations by adding butter, fruit, syrup, and other delectable toppings. Yum!

What big breakfast is complete without eggs? We’re serving them up for breakfast play time with our Slice & Sort Wooden Eggs. The crunching sound you hear when slicing these eggs is hard to resist, but there’s another surprise waiting inside . . .

Each egg’s yolk is a different color! Slice the eggs apart to reveal a half-dozen colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. Play matching games, practice colors, and have oodles of fun.
