Pretending with toy tea sets can teach kids to share and some basic table etiquette, so it's not just fun and games.
Giving a breakable tea set to a very young child isn't very practical, which is why you'll find so many toy tea sets made of plastic.
While most tea sets can hold liquids and are safe to be drunk from, take care if you find an older set at a yard sale or auction site; some sets aren't made for actual drinking.
You'll find tea sets in a wide range of prices, making this an affordable toy for just about anyone.
Shop your local toy stores for a selection of tea sets for kids.
