Tea Sets for Children - Girls' Toy Tea Sets Online

Updated on April 1, 2011

One of the best memories that I have of my childhood is spending time with my grandmother, drinking tea. She bought me my very own porcelain tea set and we would serve each other from her family heirloom tea cart in her sitting room. Tea sets for girls have always been popular and I think, always will be! There are beautiful, affordable tea sets for children available of all ages; they absolutely make the perfect toy.

The little girl in your life can serve her favorite teddy bears, dolls, friends, and you, all while garnering hostess skills and proper etiquette. Additionally, toy tea sets make a great birthday party activity!

From wood, to plastic, to porcelain, to vintage-inspired, there are many beautiful tea sets for children to choose from. Read on for some reviews of toy tea sets that you can purchase online as well as some ideas for helping your little hostess excel at her next soiree.

Before we get started, please remember that not all children's tea sets are meant to be used with liquid (hot or cold). Make sure to thoroughly check the product descriptions to ensure you buy an age appropriate and suitable set for your little hostess.

Toy Tea Sets for Little Girls

Shopping for a little girl? Rest assured that there are several adorable options that are perfect for little hands and safe for curious children. Since the products do constitute a choking hazard, these products are recommended for ages 3 and up. These tea sets are specifically designed to be shatter resistant and are made with safe materials such as poly-porcelain or plastic but they are not meant to hold liquids. They are pretend-play purposes only!

Most sets come with their own little basket, making them a great portable toy that can be carried to and from grandma's house.

Schylling Tea Sets for Kids

Schylling Tin Tea Sets for Kids are a very popular brand of quality, inexpensive tea sets for kids.

They have a huge selection of patterns and if you have a particular design in mind, they probably make it! From floral prints to funky patterns, there are tons of fun tea sets available to browse.

Schylling tea sets are generally recommended for children ages 6 and up.

Porcelain Tea Sets for Girls

Porcelain Tea Sets for Children

Porcelain tea sets are very popular for older children. Many look vintage and are perfect for playtime or for even decorating a girl's room. Many of them come in adorable wicker baskets and would make lovely center pieces for tea-time inspired children's birthday parties and the like. Included in the sets are all the essentials - miniature silverware, creamer and sugar holders, cups, saucers, napkins and more!

From retro pink gingham designs to hand-painted fruit patterns, you can be sure to find a toy tea set that matches your little girl's personality.

Wooden Tea Sets for Children

Wooden toy tea sets are a great play-time idea for younger children (or accident-prone ones!). The ever-popular Melissa & Doug brand have a few great wooden tea sets on the market that get great reviews.

In addition, the 'Plan Toys' brand (an eco-friendly toy maker) has a lovely, rustic set that is made from latex-free rubber trees.

Tin Tea Sets for Children

Tin Tea Sets for Girls

Tin tea sets are vintage-inspired and are quite similar to what older generations grew up with. There is a popular manufacturer (the Alex brand) that makes all sorts of fun vintage-inspired, tin tea sets for girls. 

Toy Tea Carts

At the beginning of this article, I discussed how much I loved serving my grandmother tea on her family heirloom tea cart. For younger children that are prone to spilling, this may not be a good idea! Luckily, there are a few adorable toy tea carts that come with or without toy tea sets that would delight any little girl that loves to 'host'. The neat thing is, you can find more realistic toy tea carts or pink and purple plastic ones that are suitable for any budget.

      Girly-girl, thanks for this nice hub about tea sets and little girls. My daughter and I still have tea parties together, but she's growing up so fast that I'm afraid those days are numbered.
