Little Tikes Makin' Mud Pies Review And Giveaway

Evan has recently become a huge "helper" in the kitchen. He wants to stir everything and is intrigued with how everything works. He later goes and imitates me in his play kitchen and with his other toys.



Little Tikes has several products to help Evan with his love for "cooking". They have been manufacturing kids toys in Hudson, Ohio since 1970. As their website states, Little Tikes is committed to making safe, quality, durable fun toys that encourage discovery and learning through active, creative, and social play. Little Tikes® urges children to play outdoors and "Get Up and Grow"!

Little Tikes Sent us the Makin' Mud Pies toy.


Makin' Mud Pies has several features to keep kids cooking for hours. I was completely impressed with all of the accessories that were included to make the set as real as possible. It includes a Hand-crank mud mixer, a real working sink that uses a water reservoir, a sink strainer, a shaker and lid, a pie mold/tin, a large mixing bowl, mixing spoon/scoop, measuring cup, and cutting board.

Here it is in the box.


This is what it looked like before it was assembled. This picture also includes all of the accessories.


I put it together on my own and it was incredible easy. It just took 12 screws and I was done. It may have taken 20 minutes total. This is how the sink works. It has a water reservoir and pump.


You pour the water in right there and screw the top back on. It took WAY more water than I thought it would so I won't have to keep filling it up over and over again. You can also see the stopper in the the sink. Simply pull the tab up when the sink fills up with water and it drains out.


The pump is a little hard for Evan to do when he's standing in front of the sink and has to reach over. He can do it really well if he goes behind the sink or uses two hands.


They were really smart when they thought to raise the square part where the bowl fits. The bowl has the square indention on the bottom so it fits snug and doesn't slide all over the place when you use the mixer.


Just like a real mixer, it lifts up when you're done so you can easily take the bowl out.


Evan has recently become obsessed with the salt shakers at home. He wants to put salt on EVERYTHING. He got so excited when he saw the Makin' Mud Pies salt shaker. We put sand in it so it would be a different color than the soil.


This is the mold that you can use to make your mud pies. Evan got a kick out of putting the dirt in there and squirting even more water into it. You can put the cutting board over the sink to make a flat surface to work on.


I'll be honest, I didn't think this toy would be as much fun as it is. There is more to do than I thought and as always, Little Tikes thought of all the little extras to make it functional and entertaining. Evan enjoys Makin' Mud Pies and all of the kids in the neighborhood ask for me to bring it in the front yard when they're outside. Not only is it a hit with the 2-3 year olds, but the 7 year olds like it too!

Here is a very short video that shows the sink and the mixer.
