Who makes the best pretend play sets?
Our all-time favorite is Melissa and Doug. My kids have always loved playing with their sets, and they last!
When it comes to pretend play, we like to find sets that are for the most part electronic free, because so much of our lives nowadays is consuming technology.
It's also a sanity-saver, because noisy toys can get annoying!
