Lilly Bean play food looks so good you could almost eat it!

Today's that's hot! thursday features another great find I discovered through Boutique Cafe's Daily Dish. Lilly Bean Market is a whimsical, tempting and tasty (if you like wool felt) collection of lifelike artisan designed playfood. (Now that's a mouthful!) Here is an excerpt of my take on this fabulous food from my Daily Dish review, "Lilly Bean play food tempts tiny tastebuds:"

It’s a good thing I know better than to eat felt or my children’s Lilly Bean Market meal sets would have disappeared long ago. You might think I’m exaggerating a bit but once you lay eyes on the Deluxe Pizza or Market Fruit you’ll understand.

Lilly Bean Market was started by Hilary Seabolt, a mother who created her first 'market-fresh' food when her four-year-old son’s stuffed animals needed something to eat. ... Our play kitchen now offers family and friends the Perfect Sandwich with a side of Market Fruit and a Super Sandwich Cookie for dessert. I’m thinking Christmas will be a great excuse to expand our menu with Lilly Bean’s new Deluxe Chocolate Strawberry Cake, Bag of Chips, and even Sushi.

Today I found the juicy (i.e. stuffed) red apple and was reminded of the beautiful craftsmanship and detail. With prices ranging from around $5 for individual items to $35 for complete meals Lilly Bean Market is an affordable (and fun for Mom) way to invest in your child's creativity. --Emily
