Best Toy Tea Sets for Kids

Every parent probably remembers when they had tea parties during their childhood. This hasn’t changed, as tea parties are still many kids’ favorite activity and they can use their toy tea sets to sit down with their stuffed animals, parents or, in our case, even pets.

The biggest misconception is that tea sets are only for girls. Think about it: men go for afternoon teas as well, so clearly it’s not a girly thing to do. Both my sons started playing with toy tea sets at preschool before requesting their own set for home.

What age do kids play with tea sets?

Kids tea sets are ideal for children starting at the age 2, as long as they’re unbreakable. It might seem like a simple toy, but it can help toddlers practice drinking from a cup and develop their child’s imaginative skills.

Once you’re sure your kid is careful and can no longer break things, you can start thinking of a real tea set for kids made of porcelain. Some recommend that kids 8 years and older can handle it, but I’ll say it truly depends on the child. Some might be ready for it at 5, some won’t be ready at 7.

Best Tip for Buying a Toy Tea Set:

Buy your kids something that can work both as pretend play and for real liquids. My kids like to pretend to play with it, but at times they also want to have a “real tea party” with us. Obviously, they don’t drink tea yet but we put apple juice in the pot.
