Most of us have fond memories of making Aunty a lovely pretend cup of tea with a yummy wooden piece of cake.  And even though times have changed, children still love pretend / real world play.   Whether it be cooking up a storm in their wooden play kitchen or creating the perfect summer carpet picnic with a yummy selection of wooden treats that almost look good enough to eat, real world play encourages little ones to play and learn together as well as making wonderful gifts.
