I bought this Melissa and Doug sand toy (Cupcake Maker) along with two others by Melissa and Doug, the Cookie Maker and the Ice Cream Cone Maker, for my daughter's 4th birthday. These sand toys are awesome! I bought a sand/water table by Little Tykes (the one with the green umbrella) and filled both sides, the sand and water side, with sand. I added just the right amount of water to make perfect sand for building. I put four little chairs around the sand table and my 4 children, ages 4, 7, 10, and 12 all love playing in this sand "box" (table actually). I tried out the sand toys myself and found so many different and creative ways to use them. I highly recommend this sand toy along with the other ones by Melissa and Doug. For those of you who are confused as to the purpose of the little icing utensil, it is used to "decorate" the cupcakes. The pointed end pokes little holes, and the jagged end makes jagged marks... all of which is FUN for kids (and adults lol). Buy this... you won't regret it!
