Imaginative play is always in stock.
With this sturdy, versatile toy as a setting, role play possibilities abound--giving children ample opportunities to try out new vocabulary, resolve conflicts, observe consequences, and develop all kinds of interpersonal skills.
With countless ways to stock the bins, label the merchandise, and make a sale, this wooden play set fuels creativity and sets the stage for imaginative play. Kids can take their cue from the pre-printed awning and set up a lemonade stand or a grocery store stocked with all their favorite things. But the simple, sturdy structure is also adaptable to countless other uses--farmer’s market, clothing store, toy shop, and much more--so it’s fertile ground for active imaginations, and an excellent idea booster for kids who need a little help in the creativity department.
Tending their own “shop” fosters confidence and decision-making skills.
What should go in each bin? How much will each item cost? When is the shop open and closed? Little “shopkeepers” will take pride in being the ones to make these decisions and more, building confidence and self-esteem. Just as beneficial: While kids are making these decisions during pretend play, they are also building simple analytic and problem-solving skills that will serve them for many years to come. With this open-ended play set, there is plenty of room for decision-making and self-direction, all in a playful setting that makes decision-making feel less frightening.

As far as quality, there is something to be desired. The paint on the countertop is so thin you can see through it. The bins are also a really thin plastic - They might hold up if kids stood on them, but not if they were jumped on or anything. The pegs on the bins are also thin, and one has already broke off on the 7th day.
The assembly was time- consuming, but not too aggravating. The size seems right for toddler and preschool kids, but when the market stand is on the carpet the pile gets in the way of hanging the blackboard tags. Also note that the blackboard tags aren't really "chalkboard" -They are surfaced with a black plastic that I didn't think chalk would even write on, but in fact it has worked just fine for chalk, and cleans well too. Chalk does not come with the toy.
My husband built the most adorable kitchen for our kids, and we talked about using this idea to build a matching marketstand for the kids. After adding up the cost of purchasing bins and wood we realized our materials would cost almost as much as this stand, and we wouldn't be able to create an awning as nice. So it seemed best to purchase this stand rather than build our own.Read more ›
ATTENTION PARENTS: If you plan to give this as a gift to a child within the household, please know that there is a giant picture on the outside of the box. I had anticipated this and made sure my son was occupied around the time I was expecting delivery. He usually races to the door to try to see the UPS people so the surprise would have been spoiled if he had seen the box. Just a heads up!
