Toy Feature 1: Professor Maxwell’s 4D Chef- A lesson behind every bite!

“Immerse yourself into Professor Maxwell’s 4D Kitchen and discover the science behind food with 18 interactive recipes that come alive in augmented reality! What’s the difference between good fat and bad fat? What is Gluten? Why do apples brown? Professor Maxwell explains the wonders of food science, while teaching you many of his favorite recipes, like making your very own pizza as you learn about the power of yeast. There’s a lesson behind every bite, so put on your apron and let’s take these yummy recipes for a spin, with step by step videos that come alive in augmented and virtual reality!”

Do you have a little foodie in your home?  Then you HAVE to check out one of the coolest toys for the holidays this year and even if you don’t have a foodie, this may just be the inspiration your child may need to get into STEM education and learning through play.   We’ve been enjoying making Smashed Avocado.   My twins are 5 and their big brother helps(he doesn’t want his photo taken, sorry!) but they love avocado and a perfectly soft, runny egg. There are so many great recipes for kids in this and it’s quite brilliant.   It encourages your child to make their own snack and going to the grocery store can be made more fun with this in mind as you teach your kids about weighing their food to figure out how much it’ll cost, to picking out what to make and what to eat.   Learning the chemistry behind it all is rather neat too!  I think rock candy will be next to try!
