Recipe Cards

From the desk of the product designer:

Behind the design

I was inspired by my own kids’ love of play food and by our adorable crew of toddler product testers. Watching them play helped us make sure everything was both fun and fraction-friendly. For example, we changed the number of butter pieces from three to four so they could be used to show ""half"" and ""whole.”

By the numbers

Kid testers: 7

Bowls prototyped: 10

At-home baking adventures inspired by our projects: lots!

Incredibly cute and well made. My only complaint is that I didn't have glue that would facilitate gluing the cut outs to the box for the oven - our glue stick didn't work. My kid also threw away the recipe cards in an attempt to help clean up and the post-dinner trash didn't really facilitate fishing them back out. Laminated type cards would be great for ensuring those cards stand the test of time for this activity.

I absolutely love this product. Everything is well made and great for little hands. However, it comes with 3 recipe cards but only 1 final product- a cake. He has a recipe for muffins and drop biscuits but the kit doesn’t come with them. I found muffins through another vender (plastic), but I can’t find drop biscuits anywhere. It’s no fun to make up a recipe but not have the final product! A few more recipes would have been good too- or an add on to the set.

This toy is so beautiful and well thought out. My son isn't always sure what to do with certain types of toys and really loved the step by step nature of following the recipe card to bake a cake. He asks for this one all the time. He even loves the cake by itself and puts it together over and over like a puzzle
