Tea parties are perennial early childhood activities. That’s because children are social creatures. Sometimes their guests are best-loved dolls or cherished teddies. Other times invitees are favorite adults or special friends. Either way, Forest Friends Tea Time makes an ideal first tea set. Made of tin, this tea set alleviates safety concerns about breaking. While charming decorations evoke the flora and fauna of woodlands. With butterflies, a deer, fox, owl, and rabbit, there’s plenty to spark a conversation. Besides developing language and social skills, hosting an event requires planning and preparation. That’s when problem-solving comes into play. How else does a child figure out what needs to be done to get ready for the party? And in what order? Such experiences support emerging sequencing skills. Forest Friends Tea Time also improves eye-hand coordination, spatial awareness, and fine motor control. Learning to pour without overfilling the cup takes practice. So keep calm and have a towel handy.
The 15-piece set includes serving tray, tea pot with removable lid, and four cups, saucers, and plates. Tray measures 9 1/2″L x 6 1/4″ W. Hand wash.
