Let the children’s imagination run wild. Not only does this strawberry and chocolate treat look truly scrumptious, but it enhances a whole world of fun for the little ones. Counting the birthday candles, the yummy looking slices and the fruity toppings would be great educational play and good practice of maths; meanwhile, the birthday child receives a card whilst the lucky guests are served in style! Each delicious layer of the Hape double chocolate Birthday cake is fastened together by sustainable Velcro to make a very cute cake that can survive play time with a giddy toddler.
This yummy looking wooden toy is perfect for role play and learning about food. The little ones can decorate their cake with the kiwi and strawberry slices, learning about fruit as they play. Add the candles to create the perfect cake for imaginary celebrations or a teddy bears birthday tea party. How many candles is your favourite teddy blowing out this year ?
From a professional point of view, the fact that the product is made from wood rather than plastic is appealing as we are slowly moving away from too much plastic available within our environment, instead preferring to use real or wooden items, this is perfect!
Additionally, the design of the product is not only attractive to both parents and children, but also a good replica of a tasty traditional chocolate cake. The ‘happy birthday’ plaque and fabric ‘strawberries’ and ‘kiwis’ for additional decoration are a lovely delicate touch and the removable candles will be much appreciated by the children as they bring different party occasions to life.
This whole product is well made, well-thought about and the small touches are the most impressive. The presentation of the product on a wooden cake plate, complete with additional wooden cake slice too really supports the opportunities with this product as the children are able to develop a narrative and extend their play.
Another element that will hugely be appreciated by the little ones is the fact that the cake can be separated into slices and shared out at a celebration or tea party. This will really support their imaginative play but also their personal, social and emotional development too which is something that parents and toy companies are always keen to support and develop.
Overall, this high quality multipurpose cake includes 23 pieces made of sustainable wood and soft felt that is guaranteed to get the children’s creative minds ticking.
