Don’t be surprised if your preschooler serves expresso from her toy single-serve coffee machine or mixes up a smoothie in her toy blender. We have moved into the era of next-gen toy kitchens.
Play foods now include sushi kits, rotisserie chickens and other trendy “pretend” menu items. And look for ads that feature both boys and girls wearing chef hats at the outdoor grill.
After all, role play prepares kids for real life roles.
