Serve up some love with a side of fried egg with Alex Toys’ Sweetheart Cafe play set. Recommended for cooks, waiters, and diners ages 3 and up, the 40-piece set includes everything a little restaurateur could want: an apron, hat, and napkins in matching heart-print fabric, menus, place mats, plates, cups, utensils, a guest check pad, pencil, and credit cards. The set also has a hamburger, fries, ice cream, and other tempting dishes. This is a toy that will be enjoyed — by chefs, servers, and diners — for years to come. Bon appétit!
