My friends over at ZURU were kind enough to send my kids a preview of this adorable Itty Bitty Prettys tea set and the kids were all too thrilled to play with them! You can check out their unboxing video on facebook HERE.
Let me just say, I am LOVING the diversity I saw in the dolls! I think they did an excellent job on that and I hope to see that continue with future possible expansions of the line.

A complete party-in-a-cup, Itty Bitty Prettys Tea Party Surprise includes surprise magic tea bags and fizzing sugar cubes that, when mixed with water reveal jewelry, accessories and other surprise necessities to help dress and style an Itty Bitty Prettys dolls and host a party! The layers of fun also include compounds that allow for molding and making treats, working teacups and saucers, and more.
The kids got an absolute kick out of the tea bags that held matching accessories for the dolls. The little bag disintegrates and turns into a gel-like substance, which of course the kids rolled around through their fingers until it had completely dissolved. The sensory aspect of this toy is top notch!

I couldn’t help myself. I had to take a picture of this adorable play set, in my tea herbs. I grow sage, thyme and oregano together in the same container, and clip them once or twice a month to dry as a fresh tea. I wouldn’t recommend trying to steep a tea in these cups, but they do make a cute iced tea, or lemonade cup, should your kids fall in love with them enough to bring them to the dinner table.
We’ve all really been into the miniature surprise toys, so these were right up our alley and the kids are looking forward to finding these in stores. Do you have kiddos who love surprise toys?
