From simple to sophisticated, playsets can help keep children happily busy for hours, allowing them to use their imagination and learn basic skills. The simplest way to describe playsets is that they are pretend/fake versions of something real, like tool sets, kitchens, cleaning supplies, or musical instruments. They are made of durable, hard-to-break materials like plastic and rubber, and are geared toward specific age groups so that they are totally safe, even with a lot of mishandling. They let kids practice before using the real thing. Because styles and components range so widely, so do prices, but you can find a playset your child will love whatever their interests or your budget.
