Foodie culture is infiltrating the playroom as food toys echo adult trends.

Apr 03 2015

Foodie culture is infiltrating the playroom as food toys echo adult trends. Plastic drumsticks and pizza slices are being replaced by healthy, gourmet and quality fake foods and gourmet appliances, and toy manufactures are catering to the toddlers with everything from veggie burgers to Keurig-like machines. Naturally, kids want what their parents have, and popular cooking TV shows have also sparked children’s interest. The trend encourages cooking as educational roleplay for girls and boys—TV show MasterChef Junior’s popularity is helping break stereotypes and has made playing around in the kitchen acceptable for both genders.
