When it comes to play food for kids, I will admit I’m a little obsessed. While I have made a lot of my own along the way, there are some truly amazing creations out there that you can’t find at your regular toy store.
I do want to call out one creator specifically as my current favorite – HouseMountainNatural. Most creations are inspired by Montessori and Waldorf teaching principles and are wooden with natural, eco-friendly soy ink. Plus, she seals the toys with olive oil and local, organic beeswax. Her pretend food is truly amazing, and I highly recommend you check out her shop (a few of my favorite products are also below). In addition to play food, she also offers a lot of Montessori and Waldorf inspired learning toys for babies and toddlers.
