Chet the Cat Play Sets Review & Giveaway!

Even though my daughter is getting older, she still adores role playing games, and any toy that can let her imagination run free is always a hit with her. We bought a play kitchen over 10 years ago, and it was the best purchase we ever made! Not only did my first daughter get a good run with it, my 9 year old daughter still plays with it several times a week. We also have many nieces and nephews that visit, and they always spend hours playing with the toy kitchen and play food. What kid doesn’t love pretending to whip up yummy food and serve it to their loved ones? Just like any good cook, little chefs need the proper kitchen utensils in order to pull together a fantastic meal. That’s where Chet the Cat and Friends Play Sets come in to help!

Chet the Cat and Friends play sets will get your child’s creative juices flowing. With 3 sets currently available- Yummy Adventures Cooking Set, Yummy Adventures Dish Set, and Yummy Adventures Baking Set- and 40 pieces combined, children will be taken on a cooking adventure! 


Meet Chet the Cat and Friends! Chet inspires children to join his friends in the kitchen and at the table —no reservations required! Each melamine set is food-grade, dishwasher-safe, and long-lasting. Chet invites boys and girls to step into the world of make believe as they cook and eat with Parfait Poodle, Ready Rabbit, and Marv the Parrot. The storybook-style illustrations of this engaging baking set are sure to bring delight & fun to any bakery, kitchen or restaurant party pretend play! Download their charming and colorful storybook-style Chet the Cat™ and Friends placemats.

4 Plates (5.5”), 4 bowls (4.25” x 2.5”), 4 forks (4”), 4 spoons (4”), and 4 knives (4”).
It has a retail value of $29.99









 
1 stock pot with Lid (4.75” x 2.5”), 1 large frying pan (9”), 1 small frying pan (7”), 1 solid spoon (6.5”), 1 slotted spoon (6.5”), and 1 spatula (6.5”).

The Baking Set comes with 9 pieces:
1 rolling pin, 1 mixing bowl (4.8” x 3”), 1 pie pan (6” x 1”), 3 measuring cups, 1 mixing spoon (6.5”), 1 spatula (6.5”), and 1 cookie sheet (8.5” x 5.5”)
The Baking Set has a retail value of $21.99






How cute are these little measuring cups!?

Each piece features fun, whimsical artwork of Chet the Cat and his friends, designed by Artist Michael Slack, whose character designs and fine art have been featured in books, magazines, and on television.

Allison recently tested out all 3 sets, and what a grand time she had! My family loves to bond over each other’s interests, and playing “chef” is something my daughter loves to do. We sat down last weekend for the grand opening of her restaurant. We loved watching how animated she became when she got to play restaurant owner, waitress, and cook all at the same time. And while she was super terrible at all 3 jobs (seriously, I’m her mother and wouldn’t hire her haha!), we were rolling in fits of giggles at all of her mistakes. Order some fries and fries you shall get:



What we loved about the pieces was that they were the perfect size for small hands. Made of durable melamine, they are not going to break or crack easily if dropped or played with roughly. The pictures on each dish are bright and colorful, which makes it more fun to engage with each piece! My daughter used each piece with her pretend food, but she also brought the sets into the kitchen and had a blast dicing cheese (with mom’s help of course), filling the bowls with fruit, and eating out of them. The dishes are made with 100% food grade melamine, so they are safe to use with real human food too! We did run them through the dishwasher (top rack) and they still looked good as new. The sets are NOT microwave, stovetop, or oven save though.

Chet the Cat and Friends Play Sets are intended for ages 3+, but I’ll tell you that even at age 9, I see the sets holding my daughter’s interest for a few more years to come!
