Who would love this: Cafe and Tuck Shop - any kids who love an imaginative play!
The Curated Parcel is a dreamworld of every parents and kids- it’s shining with everything carefully selected, all the exciting brands that I would love to share about! One of my favourites is this “Tuck Shop Juice Bar” from Plant & Pear Co - enchanting, beautiful, and of heirloom quality!
Why I love ❤️ this toy:
(1) Uniquely- Designed- Like it or not, the toys market is saturated with low-priced imitations and discounted “knock-off toys”. We thirst for originality, crave for inspirations. This toy is unique, extraordinary, “unlike anything else” that we have ever seen. The cartons of beverages are distinctive in style; The milk carton is a fashionably tall-rectangular package with a tilted side, completes with a screw cap at the top; the lemonade juice box is a half-slanted carton with a round screw cap. The strawberry milk box reminds me of a classic gable top carton, and I’m loving the adorable straw sticking out from the side. The orange and apple juice boxes are in simple cuboid form with an irresistibly cute straw on the top of each! I love that the toys are in their unpainted, natural state. They are artistically pleasing and heart-meltingly beautiful!
(2) Laser-Engraved Labels- I love the laser-engraved labels on the drink cartons. The illustrations are visually discernible. Kids can easily tell the drinks apart even if they have yet to learn the words. I love the meticulous details and the classic milk bar feel.
(3) Menu With Price List - You gotta love the tuck shop menu and its standing holder! It looks spectacular on the “ordering counter”. It’s also an awesome mathematics-learning resource for money counting. I love the decimal numbers of the prices: Apple juice costs $1.35 and lemonade is $2.80. The set goes fantastically with the “Tiny Tot Money” set, also available from The Curated Parcel (I will talk about this toy next time because it deserves a separate post on its own). I love that this toy is educational and versatile.
(4) Made in Australia Wooden Toy- The toy is handmade in Australia, crafted from wood, and comes with a sturdy cardboard storage box.
This “Tuck Shop Juice Bar” set is available for purchase from The Curated Parcel . This is a really great toy!
