The Musical Rainbow Tea Party may be bright pink but there’s no doubt that both boys and girls will find it fascinating. Littlest received her Tea Party set last Christmas. At first, she was transfixed by the sounds and lights. These days, as she grows, she is able to explore and enjoy the educational elements of the toy by matching the shapes and colours and role-playing the tea party.
Tea party role-play toys are great for boys and girls in general. I am yet to find a child who didn’t delight in pouring an imaginary cup of tea for anyone who will pretend to drink one. Biggest is technically outside the age range that the LeapFrog Musical Rainbow Tea Party is aimed at, yet, he too returns to the toy frequently.
He loves matching each slice cake of different coloured cake to the tea that is brewing. In fact, he gets quite agitated with his sister who likes to mix things up a little – painful for a little boy who likes his tea parties just so, much like everything else.
Verdict: LeapFrog Musical Rainbow Tea Party
Even though it lights up and makes noise, the tea set is surprisingly charming. The tea pot seems to fill up with different colours of tea, and then to empty as it pours, and this is something that children will love to see over and over again. It also has the added benefit that you can’t really fill it with water (there’s no room inside and mine have never asked as it makes the sound effect). I know many children don’t feel that it is a proper tea party unless there is something to pour!
Overall, the Musical Rainbow Tea Party will make a great Christmas gift for any child aged 1-3. It is the kind of toy you will find them returning to, even after a few years.
