In brainstorming gifts for my nephew, I stumbled upon a set of food plushies on Spoonflower.com. I don't know if he'll love cooking as much as I do, but I can hope and help get him started at an early age. :)
The fabric comes with shapes of expressive kitchenstuffs, and all you have to do is cut them out, stitch and flip them, stuff full of fiberfill, and close shut with a hand stitch.
You can order the fabric here, and if you order the fat quarter ($11), you get this adorable breakfast set:
For $7 more ($18 total), you can order the full yard, and get a tea time set, food, utensils, and treats!
