Everyone eats, and cooking with children takes on new fun when they have their own kid-safe kitchen tools. Master Chef Junior creates a line of cooking tools to coincide with the hit Fox television series that has young chefs competing for prizes.

The Master Chef tools are not toy replicas but real quality tools with sharp edges dulled and scaled for smaller hands. Available sets include Burger Cooking ($19.94), Pizza Cooking ($19.94), Baking ($19.94), and Breakfast ($19.94) each with their own tools – burger press and spatula, pizza cutter and pan, measuring cup and rolling pin are only some of the items in each kit.

The Cooking Essentials Kit ($29.94) includes everything a young Master Chef requires – apron, cutting board, mixing bowl, measuring cups and spoons, spatula, spoon, tongs, and recipe cards. Every kit has its own cards and all the tools needed to create treats for the family alongside mom and dad.

Young chefs will also enjoy the Girl Scout’s Cookie Oven ($59.99) that will have them mixing up cookies inspired by the Girl Scout favorites like Thin Mint and Chocolate PB, Caramel Coconut, PB Sandwich, Caramel Coconut and Trefoils (refill packs feature two flavors for $14.99 ea).

Each batch of cookies takes a quick 15 to 20 minutes to make with the once upon a time light bulb heater repeated with ceramic, tiled heating elements that bake the cookies evenly and deliciously.

Cabbage Patch Kids, soft sculpture dolls with soft painted faces, are as adorable as they were in 1978, but they have a whole new look and feel

Each 14” doll ($34.99) wears a heart key bracelet and has its own personality – Preppy, Rocker, Adventure, Glitz and Glam, Vintage and Adventure Boy. They still come with their own birth certificates, birthdates, names and adoption papers from Babyland Hospital.

Keeping your Cabbage Patch Kid company are Adoptimals, cute, cuddly and seeking a home. Eight-inch furry friends not only make cute animal sounds, but have a special heart locket that lights up when paired with your 14” Cabbage Patch Kid.

Each Adoptimal includes a bowl and brush.

Keeping the grove, the 12” Dancing Pajama Party CPK (Cabbage Patch Kid) are baby dolls with soft bodies dressed in onesies that dance and sing “I Feel Good”. The dolls stand and dance on their own and an on-off switch can also be set to “song” and “dance only” mode so that your little CPK can dance to their favorite song with their CPK.CPK600

A first bike should be themed for fun and memorable, and the Dynacraft Care Bears 14-inch girl’s bike is all that and more. Hot pink with knobby sidewalk churning tires, colorful streamers, hand brakes and a carry bag for the padded front handlebar perfect for the enclosed plush Care Bear to ride along in, this bike will be the hit of her Christmas morning.


Rubber ducky, you’re so fun when you’re decked out for the wedding or the big game. Fully floatable Rubba-Ducks are fully themed stocking-stuffers sure to elicit surprise and fun in those lucky enough to find these bathtub or desktop enhancements on Christmas morning.


With the onslaught of electronic, talking, moving, grooving toys the chance for children to sit down and use their imaginations in play are always a bonus. Colorforms, a name we remember, becomes marvelous with Marvel Comic Super Hero themed stickables.

A colorful background in the big set allows super imaginations to soar as they create new battles for the Avengers – Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Hawkman and Green Arrow as well as villains like Loki.

Take the fun along on holiday travel with a Colorforms portable board and add-on paks filled with new characters and stick on fun.colorforms
