Tea Anyone? Spending Quality Time With My Daugher

Tea Anyone?

I'm the kind of person who likes to show of lots and lots and LOTS of photos of her kids. Yes, I am one of THOSE moms. Not because I'm bragging that my kid passed kindergarten, or because they made a 'poopie' in the toiled. Though, to be fair, I am a mom with a special needs son, so I make no guarantees. I'm just saying. You've been warned.

I adore my kids. And I find it hilarious that my younger set (6 and 4) is so similar to my older set (19 and 15). Courtney is m y 6-year old and she is the quintessential girlie-girl. If it's pink and sparkles she's game. So it was no surprise when high-pitched sequels and giggles ensued after she found out I was testing a pink and flower themed tea set. So, to torture her giddy little heart, I made her wait until I could take a picture of her with her new toy.  Sorry, the picture isn't the best because she wasn't willing to sit still long enough for me to get good pictures.  

I happened to get this particular teaset for free in exchange for an honest and unbiased opinion. However, this is not the first time I've had this tea set- and the first set I paid full price for – and LOVED. So this tea set was a no-brainer. I knew I'd like it before I got it.

Why do I like this tea set. Several reasons.

  1. They are made of sturdy metal. If I stepped on those things because a kiddo left them on the carpet, it wouldn't dent or crush. And it's not the cheap plastic you normally find that fades or cracks if you look at it funny.
  2. The design is stinking adorable. Hot pink and flowers. How much better does it get for a little girl?
  3. There's enough for a true party. You get 4 plates (about 4” in size) 4 tea plates, 4 tea cups, and a little teapot complete with a top.

The only think you need to be aware of is that they are not designed to actually hold liquids. Since they're assembled using rivets, they aren't water-tight. But that's OK. Less clean-up work for you when the party is over!

The only thing that would keep me from giving the Tea set an A+ is the inability to hold actual liquids. But its report card is a solid A nonetheless. I'd highly recommend this tea party kit. And I'd certainly buy it again.
