2009 Award
Step 2 Cafe Barista
( Step 2 $29.95 Score: )

Push the button to grind the coffee beans, turn the brewing handle, and top it off with frothing sounds. This play station is full of action for young sophisticates who frequent coffee bars. It's also rather contradictory. On the one hand, it is a very literal kind of play prop, imitating the real thing. On the other hand, the cups have holes in them so you cannot use any fluids in them.  Old fashioned tea sets used to be solid enough so that you could pour water ( or even milk!) from the tea pot into the play cups.  In this new world, toy teapots and cups have holes for safety, so that they will not fit over mouth and nose. We applaud the designers' concern for safety-but it does seem too bad that they didn't make the cups larger or smaller so that they could function. Marked 2 & up. We think this is a better choice for preschoolers. The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.
