Minnie Sweets and Candy Van Review

It's amazing to see how differently Eva now plays with toys. She really uses her imagination and is constantly engrossed in role/imaginative play. She'a always making up stories and situations. She was very kindly sent a Minnie Mouse Sweets and Candy Van to review which has been ideal for her. It's great for her new found love of role play.




The van is a food truck. You can drop the side down to reveal a kitchen and seating area for baking.


The van is a pretty pink colour with a turquoise trim and yellow interiors. It's very eye catching so as you can imagine Eva was delighted as soon as it arrived. It also has flashing lights and there are sprays of glitter (another one of Eva's favourite things, she's instantly drawn to glitter). 


It comes with lots of little pieces such as cakes. These pieces are small so keep them away from younger children. Ophelia is also quite enamoured with the toy (much to Eva's frustration) so I have to watch her with all the little bits.


The Minnie Mouse figure is a good size. She's very cute to look at and has a little apron on and a chef's hat.


Eva loves this toy. She finds it easy to push around so it's an ideal size for small hands. It's not heavy. Even though it's plastic it is very robust. She has dropped it plenty of times or crashed it into a wall and there still isn't a chip or scratch anywhere insight. That has really impressed me as a parent.


It's not too large in size. She'e been taking it to restaurants etc with her, which she carries herself in a normal sized rucksack. 

She loves baking and treats so this is a lovely set for any other child that enjoys the same things. As you know we are huge Disney fans in this house so of course this toy is now one of her firm favourites. 

The only thing left for us to do is find Ophelia an alternative of her own. Have you seen any Minnie/Mickey alternatives suitable for a baby?
