In the late afternoon our dining room table provides the best spot for photographing items for my blog. It's not the best of the dining tables out there but since it's covered with junk so often, people can't usually see the fake wood surface. Today I took advantage of some unclaimed space and snapped some pictures of something fun I get to give away! Yeah!
A while back I had the opportunity to chose something from the CSN website to review. I decided that the Piece of Pizza Fractions was the perfect item for our family for a few reasons.
1) It's food. My kids love to play with their pretend food and fight over the one toy pizza we have.
2) There were three pizzas (remember that fighting???)
3) It's educational. Sam likes math and is always asking questions about it so being able to learn fractions in this way makes perfect sense!
When they opened the box they gasped. Yes, gasped. I told you it was a perfect fit! Within seconds they went into restaurant mode and were serving up slices of our favorite pizza. They aren't in the picture but there is also a delivery box, a pizza server, and a pizza cutter that comes with the set.
I was most impressed with the heaviness of the product. There will be NO bending of these pizza slices! The only disappointing thing (to me, not to the kids) was the size of the pizzas. I would have liked them to be a little bigger so the slices themselves could have been bigger (less chance of losing them). In reality any bigger and they wouldn't fit in the play kitchen we have so overall this product gets an "A" from this family of pizza lovers!
And now for the fun part...if you would like to win one of these for your family this is your chance!
