Turn every day into a kid-sized celebration with My Princess Closet's yummy-looking 33-piece Birthday Party Play Cake set by Melissa & Doug.
With enough slices and toppings - strawberries, jellybeans and gumdrops - for every party guest, kids ages 3-5 can enjoy all the pretend gooey goodness without any of the guilt or endless sugar high that comes along with its calorie-laden counterpart.
The simple wooden play set is perfect for fostering little imaginations and makes a tasty addition to play kitchens everywhere. It's also ideal for special needs children who need a fun, motivating way to practice honing their fine motor skills, pincer grasp, spatial planning and more.
Pre-cut slices are painted in white with blue icing swirls and confetti sprinkles and have seven removable candles that Velcro to the top. And, since the tasty treat is meant to hold up to toddler toughness, it features chip-resistant, non-toxic paint and a sturdy wooden storage box to contain all the fun.
