Nutrition is very important, and as we all know, children just don’t seem to understand it all too well. Veggies don’t taste as good as snacks, and fruit doesn’t taste as good as the sweets – the logic of a kid is rather simple, right?
Many parents are at their wits’ end regarding this issue, and knowing this, we’re here to offer a helping hand. Namely, the KidKraft’s Pastel Smoothie Set is not just a toy, but it’s also an educational tool which will ultimately help your children understand the importance of proper diet and hygiene.
Apart from the smoothie mixer itself, there’s a couple of vegetables and fruits – you can help your child learn colors and the name of the fruits this way. As an educational ‘tool’, like we’ve mentioned, the Pastel Smoothie set is a great gift.
Every part of the set is practically in a different color. For example, the base of the smoothie maker is pink, the handle is gray, the top lid is cream in color, and the same goes for the fruits and vegetables (green apple, yellow banana, red strawberries, etc.).
As a toy, it’s even better. Children can play around with various combinations of fruits and veggies while they search for the perfect blend for their smoothie. The set also includes a small wooden spoon which your little ones can use to stir the ‘smoothie’ to perfection.
The ‘button’ on the base is very small in size, so we don’t recommend the Pastel Smoothie Set for youngsters under the age of three, else they might swallow it by accident. The construction of the Pastel Smoothie Set features MDF and Plastic materials which are both very soft and highly durable (by industry standards). The actual dimensions of this toy set measure six inches by four inches by six inches.
