Pretend Food: Better Than The Real Thing

If you’ve read my blog for a while, you know I’m nutty for pretend food. Maybe it’s from my childhood or maybe it’s just because fake food is so freakin’ cute. Either way, no matter the reason, pretend food rocks.

Wanna hear something funny? When I was little, my sister and I played with Barbies constantly. I never cared for the bad fake Barbie food, so my sister and I would create Barbie-sized portions out of Play-Doh. We made pizzas, hamburgers, sunny-side-up eggs, donuts, popsicles, etc. We would spend an evening planning Barbies’ meals. We would let the Play-Doh food dry out and harden. It was great!

So here’s my new favorite pretend food. Ice cream and sweets.

This is from Melissa & Doug and you can find it at The Land of Nod. They also have a Cookie Set that’s pretty cute.

These are just divine! Find Fabric Dainty Treats at The Land of Nod too.
