Children’s toy dishes, like other household utensils, belong to the category of toys with which a child can imitate the actions of an adult. This is a very useful role-playing game, because in this way appropriate situations are created in which the child gets acquainted with the simple actions that adults perform every day and learns to repeat them. For obvious reasons, teaching a child on real kitchen utensils is not worth it. It may be uncomfortable for his little hands, and the coordination of movements in babies is not yet the same as in us adults. That’s why toy tableware is a very handy prop. It is made of durable safe materials, it is very light to lift, so it is very easy to hold it in your hand. Toy dishes are a visual image, thanks to which a child can be taught useful things, recreating typical everyday situations. Toys of this type bring undoubted benefits. They contribute to the development of imagination, logic, coordination of movements, teach patience, instill a desire for comfort and hospitality, form an interest in work.
When a baby is three years old, he has not yet learned how to use fantasy and he perceives the world around him in a literal sense. Therefore, at this age, toy dishes will help him with this. She will develop his imagination, and the kid will learn to think in images. He will be able to invent toys for himself and begin to simulate various situations for games. Improvised tools can replace all sorts of items for him to play with, for example, leaves can pass for napkins, and flower buds can be prepared as food.
Sets of children’s dishes come in several types, differing in purpose. Usually these are toy utensils, such as: sets for a tea ceremony (cups, saucers, teapot), for cooking (pots, bowls, frying pans, a ladle, etc.), or, conversely, sets for a meal (plates, salad bowls, cutlery utensils: knives, forks). With the help of these sets, children can imagine themselves as restaurant owners or real skilled housewives. Joint games with friends help the child learn what teamwork is. Girls often invite their parents to participate in a game tasting or feed their dolls, baby dolls and animals, showing care, as their mothers do.
