LeapFrog Number Lovin' Oven

I was recently invited by LeapFrog to review several of their new toys, and new games for LeapTV (which I'll be sharing my reviews with you over the next few days and several of them will be included in this year's Christmas Review & Giveaway as well!), but today I'm very happy to share with you their Number Lovin' Oven!

Number Lovin' Oven

Ages - 2+

Favorite Features -
  • More than just an "oven", this toy also includes 16 fun pieces - 4 pizza slices, 3 slices of bread, 2 cupcakes, 1 fried egg, 1 skillet, 1 spatula, 1 baking tray and 2 plates!
  • All the "extras" store inside - great for clean-up!

LeapFrog says; "Discover the perfect recipe for number learning fun with the LeapFrog Number Lovin' Oven. Designed for aspiring chefs ages two years and up, the Number Lovin' Oven comes with 16 fun ingredients and plenty of learning baked in. Get number skills cooking with the sassy, singing oven-30+ songs and phrases warm up counting, sharing and vocabulary skills. Little ones can move the number slider to learn about time and temperature, cut food into 2, 3 or 4 equal pieces to build math skills, and press the Chef's hat to count and sing along to lively songs. Opening and closing the oven door activates delicious phrases about cooking and sharing. Number Lovin' Oven comes with all the ingredients children need for hours of pretend-play fun. Fry an egg in the skillet-and hear real sizzle sounds! Bake up bread, a pizza and cupcakes on the baking tray-the light will blink off when the food is ready. Slice and serve treats onto plates with the spatula to share with a friend or parent. Cleaning up is easy when children are done-everything fits inside."

I think the Number Lovin' Oven is perfect for the little chefs in your life! Easy to use, children will learn just by playing - without even realizing they are learning - they will just think they are having fun! My grandsons love to pretend to cook food for us - we took a large box and made a "kitchen" for them one time and then when the "kitchen" showed too much wear and tear, we took a large rubber storage bin (their toy box) and made it into a kitchen. This little Number Lovin' Oven will be the perfect addition - the little "microwave oven" is sure to be used to "cook" us some wonderful treats. I love how it encourages imagination and at the same time teaches and reinforces number and math skills!

If you are looking for a kitchen set for your little chefs, take a good look at the Number Lovin' Oven - especially if space or budget are considerations. The Number Lovin' Oven may not be a large kitchen set, but it is packed with big learning fun!
