A great learning toy! And darling too!

Cannot recommend this enough! My daughter adores it. She played with one of these sets over at my friend's daughters' house, and she was obsessed. I got one for my little girl as a Christmas present, and she was THRILLED. This was the first present she opened, and then she didn't want to open anything else for a while because she was too busy playing with it haha. I like that it has 2 different loudness settings. The "tea" (represented by colored wave-y lights) inside actually goes from looking full, to half-full, to empty (no light). The teapot tells you how much tea is left. The real object of the 'game', if you will, is to match the color of the tea - represented by the light on inside - to the piece of cake. It took me a bit of time to get this concept. Also because my daughter kept fiddling around with it and I never actually heard it get to the part where it tells you to match the tea to the similarly-colored cake piece. The teapot will sing a song while cycling through all of the colors, then end on one color at random and ask you to find the piece of cake which goes with it. Good for receptive language skills! I'm a therapist who works with children with language disorders, and I think I'll probably end up being a 2nd one to use with my patients. You can target receptive language, expressive language (discussing what is happening), social skills/pragmatics (sharing! turn-taking!), and more. Love it :)
