Rise & Shine! {Review + Giveaway}

Another fabulous installment in the Pretend & Play collection from Learning Resources: Rise & Shine Breakfast!

This super-detailed and ultra-realistic pretend food playset includes numerous pieces, all of which come together to present a nutritious and delicious(-looking) breakfast for imaginative play!

We recently received Rise & Shine Breakfast set to play with and try out. The kids were enthralled by the two-piece strawberry and waffle, able to be “cut” apart thanks to a velcro side.


The toaster is spring-loaded — the toast popping up (and out) creates a chorus of giggles — it never gets old.


The food is heavy and durable-feeling, not to mention realistic. The egg cracks open, the glass appears full of fresh-squeezed orange juice, and the muffin hides a cluster of blueberries. When the tiny table is set and the bacom strips are frying up on the toy stove, you’ll almost feel as if a delicious early morning spread is right around the corner!

You can order the Pretend & Play Rise & Shine Breakfast set directly from Learning Resources’ site for $19.99, or look for it at retailers who carry their superb educational products.
