I’ve been wanting to purchase my girls a functioning tea set for awhile. This past Christmas I finally took the time to research an ungodly number of sets with the intention of finding one that would appeal equally to my 2, 4, and 6 year old (and me too).
After spending a ridiculously long time sifting through countless reviews, I finally settled upon a set from the folks at Green Toys. Eco-friendly, BPA free, FDA approved, dishwasher safe, and made in the USA from recycled milk jugs.
Oh, and did I mention the pretty pastel colors?
Initially, I wasn’t 100% certain about my purchase because Amazon shows quite a few lower-rated reviews where folks complain that the teapot leaks, resulting in a mess while trying to pour. It was almost enough to scare me away, but for every less-than-stellar review there was one saying that when they contacted the folks at Green Toys about their faulty teapot a replacement was sent. I figured, if worse came to worse, I would just contact the company.
The moment I opened the package I was impressed with the durability of the set. Yes sirree- this set is built to last! I feel assured that even my rough-and-tumble 2 year old won’t be able to put a dent in this thing. And I’m glad to say there was no leaks in any of the pieces. The only spills were the ones made by an overzealous server. (Which, ironically enough, was me!)
I’m sure that my grandmother is happily looking down on us and is pleased with my attempt to instill an early love of tea in my girls. I make a point to belt out “ ♪ ♫ Tea for two, and two for tea ♪ ♫” with as much enthusiasm as Gram used to do with me.
This tea set has quickly become a household favorite- SO much of a favorite, in fact, that it inspired me to write out this impromptu review.
Kid-tested; Mom-tested; Approved!
