Food Toys!

Ah, we were shopping out in Half Moon Bay this weekend in search of foodspiration. And did we find it- a new cookbook, a poached egg thingy, asparagus servers and a tasty meringue treat later...we were inspired! In a hobby store, we saw a huge assortment of wooden play toys. And that that we have a little one, I'm hoping we'll get to play with our food a bit more. This reminded me of two past posts that are worth another visit:

1. A Tale of Two Play Kitchens: two friends shared the play kitchens that they made or bought for their kids. This kitchen (in photo above) was remade by my friend and her husband. The before and after is quite impressive and reminded me that reusing is a great thing! Check out their creative blog at

2. Handmade Felt Play Food: I love this Bug Bites Play Food that you can buy on Etsy. So sweet and creative. I requested this custom order for lemon and raspberry tarts for a play tea set. Take a look! She has great holiday food items as well.

Hmm, the holidays are around the corner and food toys are wonderful and creative gifts to give!
