Fun Fan Fryer

Ages: 3 and upManufacturer: Hape International Inc.


Our testers loved this little “hot” plate. Cleverly, it uses a fan under the stovetop to blow air under the six included “meals” – three double-sided round pieces of felt with different foods pictured on either side. Salt and pepper shakers that click when turned and a metal spatula complete the well-designed set. The fan action wowed our testers, who said, “Look, it’s really cooking!” and were excited to prepare many pretend meals. With lots of play, new vocabulary words, and no added calories, this was a big hit during quarantine.
