Children love to imitate the adults they see sharing tea and cakes.

Toy tea sets encourage children's social skills as they share pretend cups of tea and cut cake for families and friends. There's a range of different types of tea sets around that can keep them entertained for hours.

Before buying a toy tea set for your child, it's important to consider a few things. Have a think about the kinds of materials would be suitable for your child; are they very young, or likely to be moving around a lot? In this case, it might be good to purchase a tea set that isn't too fragile. Plastic, wood or metal tea sets are good, durable options. If they're very young, it's best to avoid sets that come with lots of small pieces.

If you're child is a little older, they may be looking for something that feels more realistic, or you might like to get them a tea set that supports their learning. For something more delicate, there are some lovely painted porcelain sets, or those that come in a picnic basket.

To make it easy, we've rounded up the top tea set for kids, from the best for pretend play to the best for learning, to help you select the perfect children's tea set for your next tea party or teddy bear picnic.

For slightly messier play, why not take a look at our list of the best slime kits or the best mud kitchens for kids?
