Review: Melissa & Doug Sunny Patch Seaside Sidekicks Sand Toys

| June 24, 2012 | 9 Replies


I’ve always loved Melissa & Doug products so when I saw there was a line of sand toys, I knew my daughters would have to have them.  We have the Baking Set as well as the Ice Cream Set, and I’d love to get more!  Along with the two sets we have there’s a Cupcake Set and a cookie set, both of which look like lots of fun.  The Melissa & Doug Sunny Patch Sidekicks Sand Toys are unlike any I’ve seen before.  They are so much better than the usual bucket and shovel.  They are bright and colorful, and feature sea animals!  It’s a must for any sand box or your next trip to the beach.  My girls love pretend play, and these sand toys brings loads of fun and imagination.  They are high quality and made of a durable plastic unlike many of the sand toys you’ll find in stores these days.  I’m sure we’ll get lots of use out of these.  I highly recommend them as a way to keep the kids occupied for hours at a time!  Whether it’s baking a cake or serving up some ice cream cones, these sets are sure to bring hours of entertainment.  My five year old had a blast making ice cream cones for all of us.  Just remember, it is sand!  My 1 year old licked her ice cream and ended up with a mouth full of sand!


The sea creature inspired baking set includes a mixing bowl, shell shaped measuring cups an octopus whisk and crab mixing spoon.  The turtle lid on the mixing bowl can also be used as a sifter.  All pieces can be easily stored in the mixing bowl when done.  But be careful as the lid doesn’t stay on very tight, so if you turn it over, chances are everything will fall out!  The ice cream set includes 2 seahorse scoops, 2 cones, 1 sprinkles shaker, and a bucket with a handle and lid.  These sets truly are adorable! My mom bought the sets for my girls just in time for our Summer beach days.  We found them at Amazon for a great price.

    That is so cute! I know our kids would love the ice cream set! They would probably lick it, though, too! LOL

  4. Can you tell me, is it all solid for the container. I have to carry a rubbermaid bin in the car to hold all sand toys. I do not like sand all over my car when they roll around. If this was solid on the outside (and the lid stayed on better), I could just rinse the outside off with water and throw it in the car. I love their toys, great review, my son would live in the sandbox if he could!!

      Hi Jennifer! Yes, The bucket is solid plastic. The lid to the ice cream set stays on a little better than the baking set. I highly recommend these sets, your son will love them!
