Fisher-Price Laugh and Learn Pretty Please Tea Set

**WHAT IS IT**

This is a little tea set from the Fisher Price Laugh and Learn range which is suitable for children from 6 months onwards. It says on the packaging that the age range for this toy is 6-36 months.

The tea set includes a teapot, 2 tea cups and a shape sorter desert tray with buns that are different shapes. There are 3 buns in total which fit into the shape sorter.

**WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE**

I have to say that this is a very attractive and cute little tea set and it is what drawn me to it in the first place. It is however very much targeted for girls as it is pastel pinks and purples.

The teapot is pastel pink with a frilly top and it has a pastel purple lid which has pink flowers on it. The lid also has the Fisher Price logo on it. The rest of the tea pot has dark pink flowers around the bottom and on the handle.

The front of the teapot has a bright smiling face that is very friendly looking and there is a function button on the bottom. At the top there is a bigger button which is pink and has a yellow musical note. This button is done so it looks like a teabag coming out of the teapot.

The two little teacups are a perfect size for tiny hands. There are two small holes on the back I assume the purpose for these is to stop your child from suffocating if they put the cup over their face. It does mean that if you fill it up too much with water (if you are pretend playing) then the water will spill out, however the teapot does not hold water so this probably is not going to happen.

The teacups are made out of durable plastic and will withstand your little one chewing on them when they are teething. The cups are pastel purple and have cute smiling faces on the front of them just like the teapot.

The shape sorter is a dark pink and looks like a doily. The shapes are sunk into the tray like shape sorter so its easy to put the pieces of cake into them. All over the tray there are groves of different shapes and flowers for your little one to feel. Again the plastic is very durable and won’t break easily. This is a good job as my daughter likes to throw things about the room quite a bit.

The shapes for the shape sorter are little cakes. One is what looks like a piece of chocolate cake and it is in the shape of a square. This shape has holes in the bottom of it so if your little one puts it over their face again they can still breathe. The next shape looks like a piece of cherry cake and it’s in the shape of a circle. This shape is filled in so your little one can’t put it over their face. The last piece is a triangle and looks like a piece of cake with sprinkles over it. All these shapes are very well made and won’t be broken easily if your little one throws them or chews them/

**WHAT IT DOES**

This tea set has a few functions, the most obvious being role play where your child is pretending to make tea and pore it into the cups and then give you some buns.

As I have mentioned before this tea set has other features as well. The buns are put into a tray which is a shape sorter so your little one can use this as a game in itself learning different shapes and how to put them into the tray.

I have to say that the teapot is the most technical out of all the accessories of the tea set. The function button on the front bottom of the tea pot determines what music the tea pot will play when you do different things. You can turn the teapot off (I always like to see this option), the learning time function (it has a 1,2,3 beside it), music time function (it has musical notes beside it) and the last function is just typical sounds you would hear from a teapot and this has a swirling circle beside it.

The learning time function teaches opposites and when you open and close the lid it will tell you (opened and closed, hello and goodbye, up and down). When you press the teabag button it will sing a song about the tea set teaching your child about sharing and what the shapes are. When pouring the teapot it sounds like tea is coming out and it says yum yum more please or your very welcome or thank you. I like this as it helps teach your child some manners and if it doesn’t at least it is setting a good example.

The music time button will play tinkling music when you lift the lid open and closed. When you press the tea bag button that is different from the learning time function and it will teach your child about how to use the tea set and about saying please and thank you. I have to say that after a while these songs can get slightly annoying if you hear them over and over again (this is why I be thankful of the off button) however most toys are like this. A tinkling sound is made when you pour the teapot.

The last function laughs when you lift the lid and when you close it makes a clinking sound. When you press the tea bag button it makes a sound like a tea pot is whistling. When pouring the teapot it makes a sound like water is coming out.

**MY OPINION**

I really like this tea pot and it cost £15.00 which I think is an ok price for it. My daughter loves playing pretend and especially making tea for everyone. The tiny cups are a great size for her to hold and pretend to drink from.

The teapot itself is rather bulky and heavy enough when my daughter decides she wants to throw it on the ground. Thankfully it has withstood abuse from my daughter and still works perfectly so it is a very durable toy.

The only thing about this teapot that may be negative is that you can’t actually put any water or anything into it. The lid opens and there is a small amount of space and you can see a tea bag and pretend water but you can’t actually pour anything out of the teapot. The spout is filled in so pouring anything out of it is impossible.

My daughter never made much of the shape sorter but she will give you the cakes without the tray and tell you to eat them all up.

I have to say that this is a great toy for little girls who like to make tea for anyone. The sounds are great when my daughter is playing with it as it makes her feel like she is really pouring tea. Also the songs and some of the sayings have educational value that learns my daughter manners, opposites and how to use a teapot.

As this toy is used mostly with other people it can help learn your little one social skills and how to share. My daughter is an only child and I feel that this is an important skill for her to learn.

This is one of the toys I got my daughter last year for Christmas that she is still steadily playing with and will continue to play with for a while yet. I feel that it was good value for money and a long lasting toy.

I think that Fisher Price should have a boy version of this toy as it means that boys are missing out and who says that boys can’t make tea as well.
