On the sixth day of Christmas . . .

There are toys and then there are handmade-use-your-imagination-wow-these-are-great-will-be-played-with-again-and-again toys.

Becky M makes amazing felt play food that definitely falls into the second category. The things she makes are detailed and unique and incredibly well-made. They're perfect for a play kitchen, a play store or an afternoon tea party.

Photographs of her food have been published in "DDN Cucine International Kitchen" Magazine and her felt food is in the Chicago Children's Musuem!

And amazingly the food she makes is even washable.

Kenna and Michal's kitchen is stocked with food made by Becky and after being played with a lot it still look as good as the day we got it.

And guess what? Becky is going to give one lucky reader a set of breakfast pastries -- that's non-copyrighted speak for Pop Tarts -- AND a dinner set. (Both are pictured above.) Just go visit Becky's etsy store and then tell me in the comments which item you like the best.

And me? I think the red velvet cake slice is adorable. I love the cherry Pop Tarts, which were my favorite kind when I was a kid. I think the avocado, complete with a pit, is great and the ice cream sandwich is darling. And I think the tri-colored bow tie pasta is just plain clever.

What about you?

My creation


This giveaway will remain open until 12:00 midnight on December 12. And remember if you'd like to see all of the giveaways, just click on the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway label below. (It's underneath my signature.)

    Fabulous food...much more fun than the wood and plastic cusine that is currently served at our tea parties...the dollies will thank you(!) All the food is great but a big helping of felt spaghetti and meatballs with a side of Red Velvet cake would certainly hit the spot.

    ReplyDelete
  115. This food is so realistic looking! When I was young I always wanted to play with kitchen and baby toys that looked 'real'. Not much variety back then. :)

    My favorite is the Big Breakfast - Set C. Around our house we often have breakfast for dinner. I also love the pasta, penne, bow-tie, ravioli, etc.

    BeckyM is so creative...looks good enough to eat!
