Play food really whets our appetite. Our goto gift for little ones this summer is the Fill & Spill Picnic Basket by Melissa and Doug.
Grab a blanket, head outdoors and let your little one nosh on pretend ice cream, watermelon, sandwich and soda. Don't worry about drool because it's all machine washable. And we really appreciate the clear yellow basket. It's designed to teach little ones to reach inside and explore, but it also makes for easy clean-up.
