Gifted Review | Hape Kitchen and Food Range

Disclosure - We were gifted products for the purpose of this post. All thoughts, opinions and photographs are our own. 

We are really big fans of Hape and little J has gathered quite a large range of their toys over the years.  Our latest additions are from the Hape Kitchen and Food Range. We were sent My First Waffle Maker, My Coffee Machine and The Fresh Fruit Set. I am a huge fan of wooden toys and this range does not disappoint. 

My First Waffle Maker includes 12 pieces. The waffle maker, 4 pieces of waffle, 4 strawberries, maple syrup, a plate and tongs.

Waffles are a great way to start the day and little J loves pretending to make us waffles for breakfast. He enjoys placing all the waffle quarters in to the waffle machine using the tongs and then closing the waffle machine while they cook. He turns the button and waits for them to cook.

Once done he uses the tongs to pop them on the plate. Just add some strawberry and maple syrup and they are ready to eat.

My Coffee Machine includes 6 pieces. The coffee machine, coffee pod, cup, milk sugar bowl and spoon.

I'm not a coffee drinker however I have paid a visit to little J's coffee shop and it was very tasty. The coffee machine is great addition to our cafe/role play toys. The coffee pod can be added to the top of the coffee machine just like a real coffee machine. With a press of the button and a turn of switch your favourite coffee is served. Little J added some milk and sugar and it was good to go.

The Fresh Fruit set includes 7 pieces. 1 apple, 1 kiwi, 1 banana, 1 pear, 1 orange, 1 lemon and a knife. Unfortunately even though our Fresh Fruit set was sealed there was no knife included. I have raised this with Hape and I am awaiting a response. Hopefully I can update soon.

Each piece of fruit can be cut in half using the knife as both halves are attached with velcro. Little J loves cutting the fruit. It's great for him as it encourages hand eye coordination and also his fine motor skills. He has always been a little awkward using hand tools so this has definitely helped him improve a little over the last few weeks.

Hape 's Kitchen and Food range are beautifully crafted from the highest quality natural materials. Hape are proud to use only water based paints, tested rigorously to ensure that customers get the best value for money and quality in their toys.
