Now your kids can bring a tune to their imaginary teatime play. The Musical Tea Set Toy is adorned with Michelle Carlsund’s illustrations from her work Iceland. When a child pretends to pour tea from the pot, it plays an instrumental version of “(How Much Is) That Doggie in the Window?” Set includes a tray, four cups and saucers, four plates and a windup teapot. This set is produced by French toy company Vilac, who had work in MoMA’s 2012 exhibition Century of the Child: Growing by Design, 1900–2000.
Features of the Musical Tea Set Toy include:
- Set contains 1 teapot, 1 tray, 4 plates, 4 teacups and 4 saucers.
- Since the teapot operates by hand winding, no batteries are required.
- Please note that the Musical Tea Set is not food-safe and is only meant for imaginary play.
- Ages 3+.
- Made of painted metal.
- Measures 4h x 13.8l x 7.9”w.
