Birthday Gift Guide and Giveaway - Learning Resources New Sprouts Soups On Set


Here is the first of Lily's 2nd Birthday Gift Guide and Giveaway and we have something from Learning Resources.

Its from there range New Sprouts and its called Soups On.



Lily has got a kitchen for her Birthday and so I thought that one of Learning Resources food and kitchen sets would be perfect. So I got in contact with Learning Resources to see if they would like something to be reviewed. 

I chose the Soup's on set. I knew this would be something Lily would love due to loving mixing and stirring things. The big spoon that it comes with looked for that and so I knew it was the perfect choice for her.

The New Sprouts sets which includes Soup's on, are all perfect for 2 year olds and makes a great gift. Not only are the sets really fun but they also aid learning through play. This is something that is important to me when thinking of what gifts to buy Lily for her Birthday.

The Soup's on set in particular encourages imaginative play, early vocabulary, and social skills as your child pretends to cook for others. Its also really good for fine motor skills as your child learns to scoop out the food from the pot with the spoon. 


The set includes -

  • Soup Pot with Ladle
  • Two bowls
  • Two spoons
  • Three carrot crinkles
  • Three onion wedges
  • Three celery pieces
  • Jumbo Noodles
  • Two red potatoes
  • Two tomatoes
Its recommended for children ages 2-6 years old and costs £20 to buy online from the Learning Resources shop. 


So what we did think of the Soups on set? 

Firstly Ive always loved how Learning Resources displays there toys in the box. the plastic window shows the toys inside the box and so when Lily first saw it she was really excited and wanted it out straight away. 



The set is so colourful and the plastic of the foods is really good quality. They are also of a really good size and they feel a little more realistic than the cheaper play foods you can buy. Its actually so realistic that it actually makes me crave some nice chunky vegetable soup! The food in the soup set is great because its all chopped up little pieces that are just like Lily would have if she was having dinner. This really helps her with imaginary play. It also helps Lily start to identify different pieces of food.






Lily has really enjoyed using this set so far. Ive seen her stirring the big soup with the spoon and she was also drinking out of the soup bowl making a slurping sound. No idea where she has got that from... I've never drunk from the bowl. (Not!) haha

She hasn't quite got the hang of scooping the pieces of vegatables with the spoon but i'm sure thats something she will pick up soon. 


Overall we are delighted with this toy and I would definitely recommend this for a nice addition to your child's play kitchen or even as a nice start to aiding imaginary play. I love this set that much that it makes me even want to play with it!

You can pick this up for £20 on the Learning Resources website.
