3rd Birthday Gift Guide and Giveaway - Lets Do the Dishes Set

To celebrate Lily's Birthday I have teamed up with some great companies this week to bring you some great gift ideas with reviews of the product and a giveaway. 

Today is day 1 of the Lily's gift guide and giveaway and I have a Busy Me, Lets Do the Dishes Set up for grabs. 



Lily really loves role play and one of the things she has been wanting to do recently is wash up. She does have a little sink in her kitchen where she can pretend to do this. But the Addo Lets do the Dishes set just provides that little bit more encouragement to get doing the dishes.

The set comes in a drying rack and includes  - 

  • 4 plastic Plates
  • 4 Plastic Cups
  • 4 Plastic Spoons
  • A Pot
  • Ladle
  • Fish Slice

I did really like how it was all laid out in the rack. With separate place for the spoons and separate place for the cups and plates. Was really good that it could teach Lily how to be organised and tidy.

All the items were really colourful and so Lily could not wait to get doing the dishes.







This set is great to Lily to use with her kitchen and she can pretend that she is washing up. But this is also a really good set to do a real washing up activity for kids. Children love playing in water and so something which is a annoying house hold job for us, is really good fun for them. So when I told Lily I was getting a bucket of water for her to do the washing up in, she got really excited and literally jumped up and down shouting "YEY". If only we kept hold of that excitement into adulthood!! 

So I filled up some water for Lily and I popped all the items from the drying rack into the water. I rolled up her sleeves and gave her a sponge and let her wash up her dishes. She loved it and knew exactly what do to.

These plates and cups are perfect for washing, they are simply plastic and don't have any stickers on so are ideal for getting wet. 

After she had done them all and put them back into the drying rack. (Into the correct places I may add) She wanted to do it all over again. So emptied them back into the water.



This toy provides so much fun for kids and is such a great birthday gift to help with the imagination.

You can buy this toy from The Entertainer for £13.99, though it is currently on sale at £6.50!! Which is a bargain! 

Does your child enjoy doing the dishes?
