I seen patterns for these a few years back and I am so excited to see someone making and selling these!
First of all, these are on sale right now, and the play food and pans are on sale as well. Oh My Wow.. the quality of everything is out of this world.
Super easy to assemble and the play food is made out of nice materials AND the best part.. the food is squishy! They have some weight to them, which I love, it seems to make it easier for the kids to hold onto.
Each of the accessories sets come with 12 pieces. They have a few different food sets, pots and pans and a costume. Pst.. the pans are food grade too! Wow!
See! The pretend foods are soft and squishy! I just love the overall feel of them!
These pots, pans and utensils are so cute. They are stainless steel, which is just awesome in itself, and they are the perfect size for little hands.
The counter top set is so so cute! You can put pretend food in the blender and in the toaster and you can set items on the shelf towards the top.
Love the veggies! Love the soft colors too, kind of gives it an organic feel.
This set is the same! Soft and squishy!
The stove it totally my favorite. I did, however, have a little trouble getting the flat plastic piece to go into one of the sleeves, I think the size might have been off, but I did eventually get it to fit, with a little Mom power 😉
The oven and microwave both open and close with magnetic tabs and you can place the pretend food into the clear pockets.
And this! Ahh.. so sweet! It was a bit big for my almost 3 year old, but perfect for my almost 5 year old!
Love the details of the food..
Definitely my favorite play food that I have seen. Love the squishy feel and with squishes being so popular, it take it right to the playing field!
Pot and pants are super cute as well. One of the pans are plastic, the others are stainless steal. The over mitts are so cute, I just love anything smaller than normal! Ha!
One of the sets comes with a cookie sheet too! I think there are donuts, cookies and .. maybe a cheesecake? I love cheesecake, so we will call it that!
The finished set up stove/oven/microwave! The material is a heavy type of canvas I believe, with the finishes being a felt and other materials. Super durable and easy to clean.
Here is another write up:
“If you have little ones who love helping in the kitchen, the Pop-Oh-Ver Kitchen DeluxeSet($29.95) is a must-get imagination playset,” begins one of two glowing review by The National Parenting Center for the cleverest line of indoor play this year. The National Parenting Center joins six other toy industry influencers who were overjoyed with Pop-Oh-Ver’s endless possibilities for imaginative play that’s put away… until next time. Rare is a review that instructs parents of a “must-get” toy!
The centerpieces of Pop-Oh-Ver’s appeal are the now-you-see-it/now-you-don’t Stove and Kitchen Counter Sets ($39.95). The National Parenting Center called them ingenious! This is from a nationwide parent advocacy organization that has seen and tested every possible toy on the market, for decades! Pop-Oh-Ver has already won eight additional industry awards for its great design this year.
“This 12-piece toy kitchen accessory set includes all the pots and pans your little cooks will need,” continues the rave review that won a Seal of Approval Winner Fall 2018 from The National Parenting Center, “to become fabulous pretend chefs. Most of the pieces are made of sturdy stainless steel so you can wash in the sink or stick them in the top rack of the dishwasher. The kick here is that you can use all the parts with real food. Yes, they are food grade!”
A second Seal of Approval Winner went to the Pop-Oh-Ver Stove & Kitchen Counter Set. The gushing review begins, “The Pop-Oh-Ver Stove & Kitchen Counter Sets are an ingenious idea for people who do not have space for a traditional kitchen set. The set consists of one thick canvas fabric piece that fits over a flat backed chair. It is basically a slipcover for an armless chair which allows a child to play in a kitchen setting for a time and then the whole thing can be taken off, folded up and put away. It inspires and encourages role play while keeping set up and mess to a minimum.”
Pop-Oh-Ver has also received these awards this year: Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Award, Tillywig Best Creative Fun Toy Award, Mom’s Choice Gold Award, Family Review Center Gold Award, PAL Award, Hot Diggity Award, Creative Child Product of the Year Award and Academics’ Choice Brain Toy Award.

Needless to say, Aaron (from the Dream Team) loved this set!
Mad Mattr! Eek! We seen this at Sweet Suite.. LOVE this stuff. My boys love it and I love it, we just can’t seem to be able to put it down!
It’s really like magic sand! Moldable, yet soft!
They have huge packs, brick makers, and even travel sized pods! We used cookie cutters and blunt knives for even more play fun (I used a sharp one, but not the boys!), we also found molds like a circle and a gummy bear.
This is something that is definitely great for sensory type play! All of my boys are hands on!
We were finished filming, but the boys just didn’t want to stop playing! I LOVE the pods though, you can throw it in a purse or backpack.
It is kinda messy, but does clean up really easily. So keep that in mind if you want to travel with it somewhere.
Ah.. the brick maker.. this was so fun and the bricks actually stack on each other! They are pretty simple to make, once we figured it out.. ha! The instructions are on the back of one of the pieces.
Looks like these vary in price, which ranges from around $10-$20. You can find these at most retailers.
S-t-r-e-t-c-h your creativity to the max with Mad Mattr – an amazing, super-soft modeling compound that molds and builds easily. Let your kid’s imagination run wild with this Mad Mattr modeling compound. It is stretchable and can be easily molded to create different shapes and structures. Kids will have hours of fun with this Doh-like compound that flows through your fingers.

Did you know that the Slinky has been around for 75 years! It started out as metal, then plastic, now all kinds of colors and even light up ones!
We were so excited to be able to join in on the fun for Slinky Day..Thanks to Alex Toys!
Look how fun this package was! Check out Alex Toys here! They have SO many slinky’s, even HUGE ones! They also have tons of other toys too! I love their products, they have so many hands one creative things.
The boys had a lot of fun with these! Slinky’s are such a fun thing!
LJ was trying to stretch it out as far as he could! We only have a few steps on our porch, so we really couldn’t get the real feel for it! ha!
Alex Toys was SUPER nice and sent us some slinky’s when we first started YouTube (2 years ago!) and we added that footage in our new video! Check it out:
Slinky’s just seem to be the staple of toys! Or at least they seem to be the start of what toys were!
So I have never been the best at reading to my boys.. I did when they were younger, but now since I work from home part time, YouTube, Blog and parenting 3 crazy boys.. it’s hard to find time..
I have been on the search for something that will assist with this.. so when we seen this at Sweet Suite.. the boys AND I were hooked!
The boys stood at this booth for a super long time. They listened to a whole story! It was about 7 mins long.
Ahh.. this is my favorite photo of them from Sweet Suite, not to mention the ladies that ran this booth/run Lunii were the most sweetest and friendliest group I have met!
They seen that the boys were really intrigued and gave us one to take home! It’s super awesome! Not only does it charge, but you can pick a character, theme and object. It’s screenless and the buttons are not overwhelming to figure out, the whole feel of the storyteller is really nice. Super simple for kids to use on their own.
There are 48 stories that come downloaded on the storyteller and you can even download more on their website! We JUST downloaded the bedtime stories and THAT is what the boys have been listening to at night! They have really enjoyed it.
I honestly can’t wait for more downloads to be available!
There is also a head phone jack so you can use the Storyteller with or without head phones. This would also be great for car rides or waiting for a doctor appointment. The My Fabulous Storyteller retails on their site for around $70.00.
For our full review (and skit) check out our video:
The boy’s (and I) had fun filming this video. Their giggles towards the end of the skit were so perfect that I didn’t have to edit anything in! They were actually listening to the stories when I “looked inside the room”! We didn’t have to act any of that out!
