Please, Play With This Food!

In fact, that's what this food is designed for...creative play. We love these play food sets made by Rebecca at Bug Bites Play Food. Bug Bites Play Food is a store on Etsy, which is an online marketplace for handmade goods. Rebecca makes these toys from ecospun polyester made from recycled post consumer bottles and they are machine washable.

We just bought this set of tea and tarts as a present. This is a custom order that I requested specifically to accompany a tea set for a two year old. I love this idea of custom orders because I have a lot of ideas and I don't sew!

I requested a raspberry tart and a lemon tart and each are crafted with lovely little details: dimples in the berries and little ridges in the tart crusts.

The mint and apple tea bags also have delicate stitching around the edges! I really appreciated the detail in the design!

The other reason we love play food is because it's never too early to teach kids about food and cooking! Happy playing!
