Pickle Things Review

I decided to try my hand at making felt food for my children’s play kitchen about a year ago and quickly realized that it is much more difficult to do it correctly then I originally thought so I abandoned the idea. However, the few felt creations that I did make for my children they absolutely loved and played with it until it actually fell apart almost three years later. What I love most about felt food is that it is not made like those typical plastic mass market play foods and it is soft which makes it more realistic in my opinion. Felt play food really seems to promote imaginative play and is the “go to” food in my children’s play kitchen as opposed to plastic, cardboard or even wood food.

Therefore, I have an appreciation for the art of making felt food because I know how much love and attention to detail must go into making each piece. Pickle Things has a wonderful selection of felt play food that is just amazing. My children’s eyes immediately lit up when they saw the Pancakes Felt Play Food Set. This fun breakfast set includes three realistic looking pancakes with two pats of butter and syrup. My three year old son was intensely “flipping” pancakes on is play stove and was excited to serve breakfast to my husband and I. This is such a neat set for only $18!

The Ham & Cheese Sandwich Felt Play Food set by Pickle Things is one of our favorites and it can be built easily by little hands. It includes two slices of bread (look at the crust!), ham, cheddar cheese, lettuce and tomatoes so the sandwich can be “custom made” by your child. Once it is put together it looks just like a real sandwich and it is so well made i.e. the stitches are virtually perfect (I could not find even one flaw in the products that I reviewed) and the details are top notch even down to the seeds on the tomato. This Ham & Cheese Sandwich set can be purchased for only $22.

If you are looking for a fun and creative gift idea for children then I highly recommend viewing the entire selection of felt play food from Pickle Things! The California Sushi Rolls and the Tea Bags are just fantastic! You can head over to Pickle Things to purchase your favorites.
