For millennia, people have been baking, sharing, and enjoying all sorts of delicious foods. Using campfires, hot coals or ovens, bakers have filled the air with the delicious aroma of their creations. Whether baking breads, pastries, vegetables or meat, these intrepid pioneers have been a blessing to humankind. On May 21st, we celebrate World Baking Day. For all the positive ways in which baking impacts our lives, we salute the bakers of the world and especially the ones around us for their generous contribution to our health and happiness!

Aside from their delicious creations, bakers create a deep sense of home and community, connecting people in a special way. It’s hard to think of baking without the act of sharing – sharing the baked food itself, sharing a meal, and sharing family traditions. The love, labor, and energy involved in baking usually guarantees large proportions. These larger portions, in turn, often necessitate the sharing, selling, or storing of what was so carefully produced.

Remember during the pandemic? Baking became almost an obsession. Flour and grains were sold out at grocery stores for weeks at a time. For some people, baking was a way of being economical, health-conscious, or offered a way to make money from home. For others, it offered a chance to be creative and to delight their family and friends with treats they may not have had time to make during busier times.

Baking holds a strong attraction for children who like to help as well as those beginning to exert a sense of self (the “Let-Me-Do-It” stage.) For safety reasons, hot cooking surfaces obviously aren’t the best places for children to experiment. Luckily, The Queens Treasures® offers a wide range of 18” doll-sized baking accessories which are perfect for indulging those urges. They also present fun opportunities for dramatic play with 18 inch dolls and other children.

Whether hosting an 18” doll pizza party, setting up a pastry shoppe, or baking pies for a church supper, there are thoughtful accessories to help make the stories unfold. A 1930’s stove and oven offers a full range of cooking and baking interactive play while The Little House on the Prairie® collection includes a cooking set & firepit to make Johnny cakes on the trail or a wood cook stove to make them at home. And what would doll play be without the right apparel? 18” doll outfits include the contemporary chef or an historic scullery maid . To complete the collection, there’s even a child-sized dress-up set for play-along fun.

At The Queen’s Treasures®, we believe that imagination is the key to unlocking a whole new world outside of the digital age we’ve been thrust into. The aim of our products is to help inspire and nourish creative play that begins in a child’s mind so they can grow their imagination and fuel creativity. With toys designed to be memorable, they are lovingly made to be in your family for years to come so that generations from now, that imaginative fun can still flow. Our products are tested to meet or exceed testing standards in the USA, and Canada so that you and your children can play with peace of mind.

Thus, we cordially invite you to enter the great hall and begin perusing our finest treasures, made just for you!
