Hello Kittys Sweet Treats Look Good Enough to Eat Review

Reviewers: Mummy, Daddy, Joshua (19 months) and Rabbysnuggles

Dear Geoffrey

Thank you very much for Hello Kitty Sweet Treats Food Bar.  I like to play with the boxes but I don’t understand why they are empty. I have my own big treat box in the kitchen cupboard which is full and Mummy sometimes lets me have a treat. I like my treat box better because I know all the treats in there and they are only given to really good boys.

When I’ve finished playing with the sweet shop I feel hungry and point to my advent calendar. Mummy says I can have a chocolate if I ask for it nicely. I always ask for it nicely and I’m getting really good at saying Christmas words. My favourite word is jiggle bells and I say it really fast.

Lots of Love

Hello all

In our mind, Hello Kitty is aimed at girls! The colours, the logos, the product. I don’t think Sweet Treats Food Bar is any different.

As the product is aimed at children 3+ and some of the parts are quite small, we did need to keep our eyes peeled as Joshua (19 months) played with this toy.

Having said that, the parts were just right for his small hands; Joshua loves holding objects in both hands and quite often runs off with them.  So although he rarely stands still for long the different pieces to this toy did keep his attention for a little while and he was busy trying to understand what the purpose of it all was.

This is an interesting concept for a 19 month year old as the toy doesn’t ‘work’ as such. Instead it is more designed to encourage role play and conversation.   Joshua is too young to understand this. He played with the different pieces by lining them up and chatted away for a while without appreciating what the boxes really were. He then dropped them in various places around the room before going back to his safety zone; cars and trains!

This toy is exactly the kind of thing Mummy would have loved as a child. It’s essentially a sweetie shop and you can spend time selling sweets from the shop to friends and parents.

At the time of going to press the only downside to the toy is the price which perhaps seems a little high considering there isn’t anything electronic feature wise.
