Things to Consider

This set gets amazing reviews when it comes to design and play-ability, however there are some minor gotchas. The main complaint with this set is that the case is made from cardboard and will fall apart over time.

What to Consider When Buying a Tea Set

With all the different tea sets out there, it can be intimidating to choose the right set. There are so many things to consider. Luckily, we’ve compiled a guide of the most important things to look for when purchasing a tea set.

Appropriate Age

Kids love to start throwing tea parties at a very young age and will continue to enjoy pretend tea time for many years. But, if a tea party set is too advanced for young children or too babyish for older children, they may quickly lose interest in it. To avoid this, choose a tea set that makes the most sense for your child’s needs.

Number of Pieces

For young children, you’ll want to stick with tea sets that don’t have a lot of pieces. For kids under age six, look for a tea set with cups, saucers, a teapot, and maybe a few accessories, like spoons or a sugar dish, so about 16 pieces or less. Anything more than that, and young children are much more likely to lose the pieces. Or worse, leave them lying around for you to step on.

For kids older than six, more pieces would be much more appealing. They will be able to throw a tea party for more friends and feel that they are having a real adult tea party. They will also love to set the table in a more complex way and care for their tea set.

Size of Pieces

For older kids, the size of the pieces isn’t as important to consider. But, for children under five, and especially children under three, you’ll need to make sure that the pieces aren’t small enough to choke on. The parts to be cautious of are lids, small finials that may screw off, and accessories like spoons and fake food.

Aesthetics

Usually, it’s pretty obvious what types of designs are geared toward younger children and which ones are meant for older kids. For tea sets, this can depend on each child and their interests, but, generally, sets that don’t look very realistic, or that have a lot of cartoonish designs, are for younger children, and more realistic and sophisticated ones are for older kids.

Function

For some kids, playing pretend while having a tea party is enough. However, other kids enjoy being able to fill up their teapot and drink from their cups. For kids who plan on using their tea set in this way, you’ll want to make sure and choose a functional tea set.

You wouldn’t fill the pot up with hot beverages, but even making believe with water and snacks can be a fun activity for kids of all ages.

Safety

Perhaps the most important thing to consider when buying a tea set, or anything for children, is safety. You never want to put your child at risk, so choosing a tea set with pieces that are the right size and is made of suitable materials is paramount.

Materials

To ensure that a tea set is safe for certain age groups of children, you’ll want to look at the materials used to create it. The main things to watch for are stickers or paint that may peel and end up being eaten, materials that could break and become sharp, and materials that could be toxic if a child were to drink from them. Avoid any dangerous materials by reading the description carefully and, even if the materials are safe, monitor young children while they use their tea set.

Durability

It’s no secret that kids can be rough on toys, even sophisticated little princesses. To make sure you choose a tea set that will withstand all that your little one may throw its way, pay attention to the way the set is constructed and how they will store it away for safekeeping.

Construction

When you look at the construction of a tea set, you will want to look for possible points of weakness or, with functional tea sets, where liquids may pool. Choosing pieces that are constructed in one piece, rather than tea sets with seams, can increase the chance that the set is durable. Also, consider unpainted sets so that the set doesn’t become unattractive and, therefore, unused.

Storage Cases

Most damage to children’s toys happens not when they are being used, but when they are left out or stored improperly. If you want your child’s tea set to last a long time, choose a tea set that includes storage or a carrying case.

By giving your child a place to store their set, you will not only be preserving the tea set, but you will also be teaching them responsibility and how to put their belongings away.

Choose the Perfect Tea Set

Playing with tea sets is a great way to build social skills, foster open-ended play, improve conversational skills, and expand the imagination.

Hopefully, this detailed list of the best toy tea sets for kids, including their types, age appropriateness, and other factors, will help you to choose the perfect tea set for your little ones so they can reap the many benefits of hosting a tea party.
