Play-Doh Meal Makin’ Kitchen Set (Review)

Every time someone is cooking in the kitchen, my son has been trying to ‘cook’ too. A Masterchef in the making, I can only hope. While I wholly agree to the idea of him learning to cook, letting him near a hot stove at his age is something else altogether. So, his father did the next best thing. He got him a Play-Doh Meal Makin’ Kitchen set.

Ever since we bought him the Peipeile Dough Fastfood Center, he has been asking for ice cream, strawberries, cars, fire trucks, robots, etc. made out of dough. So, since we wanted to check out and compare the quality of the different brands of modeling items, purchasing the Play-Doh Meal Makin’ Kitchen set seems to be the ideal solution.

Hours and hours of fun just creating something out of lumps of colorful plasticine.

Taming Toddler Tantrums

Before becoming a mother, I would wonder why parents let their kids shout and run around in a restaurant. I would wonder why parents let their kids cry loudly while they stood by or walk away. I would wonder why parents let their kids roll on the ground crying and flailing their little arms and legs. Were they bad parents?
