This Christmas I was lucky enough to receive a new microwave as a gift. Our previous microwave was approaching 18 years old but was still going well. Holly and Lara are both intrigued by our shiny new microwave and have been getting to work in their own toy kitchen trying out their own toy Morphy Richards microwave from Casdon.
This set of Morphy Richards toy kitchen accessories is another role play hit from Casdon. The girls have been cooking and defrosting until their heart's content! Holly even made me breakfast in bed one morning - all be it plastic breakfast in bed.
The toy microwave is the biggest hit. You can rotate the display to say you are cooking, defrosting or even using the "potato" setting which is probably our most used setting on our real microwave so the girls feel at home with this! The buttons on the front feel like real buttons - they beep as well, just like the real thing! The door opens and their is a tray inside which is very realistic, especially when it rotates. Press the start button and the light comes on and the tray rotates; it's quite a bit noisier than our new real microwave! Holly enjoys putting her plastic and wooden toy food items in and out.
Also in the set is a Morphy Richards kettle which is a very modern shape and can be thought of as either an electric or traditional kettle (in a play kitchen, you can do anything you want to do!). The lid comes off the kettle so that you can pretend to refill it. With the Morphy Richards branding it looks just the part.
Finally comes the toaster which the girls enjoy because you can pop the toast up by twisting the dial It comes with two slices of plastic toast.
This three-piece Morphy Richards play microwave, kettle and toaster set is recommended for children aged 3-5 years old and costs around £30.
