If you’ve ever gone grocery shopping with kids, chances are you’ve denied them at least one item that they’ve begged for. It's one of the many reasons why a toy grocery story might delight them, and we've spotted the perfect one.
Made for children three years and older, Melissa & Doug’s Fresh Mart Grocery Store is bound to be your kids’ favorite toy. The free-standing wooden grocery store includes features that make it incredibly realistic, like a beeping scanner, a hand-crank conveyor belt, a card-swiping machine, a keypad that’s also a calculator, and a cash drawer. On one side, kids can play-shop for groceries from the ample shelving. And on the other side, they can pretend to be the cashier, ringing up and bagging the items.
You can purchase the Fresh Mart Grocery Store from Amazon, Bed Bath & Beyond, Walmart, Kohl's, Target, and Melissa & Doug. On Amazon, the toy grocery store has an Amazon’s Choice label, which means it’s highly rated and well-priced. It has 366 five-star ratings and is marked down at $149.99. Some customers found it was a great learning tool for counting, reading, working with others, and even patience from waiting in line.
“My husband and I are SO pleased this product. We ordered this for our 6 and 3 year old sons, and they have been obsessed with it ever since I put it together,” one customer wrote. “They woke up yesterday morning and walked straight out of their bedroom and into the playroom to play with this grocery store, and they were in there for 3 hours! The instructions were simple to follow, and it was easy to put together. I also bought the companion set and an extra can set to go along with it. A great buy!”
For the complete experience, many customers recommend buying the accessories kit. It comes with 70 pieces, including items for the grab-and-go rack, play money and credit cards, and a conveyor belt divider bar.
