In true Casdon style, the leading role-play toy manufacturer has recently unveiled their newest edition – a barista style coffee machine, packed full of functions and features, perfect for little ones who love to mirror mum and dad.
Available at retailers from this summer, the Casdon De’Longhi Barista Coffee Machine is an exact replica (in miniature form) to the De’Longhi La Specialista Barista Coffee Machine – bringing the trend for bean-to-cup brews at home into pre-school role-play – allowing little ones to (safely) join in on the morning routine.
Complete with a portafilter, two glass cups and milk jug, the Barista Coffee Machine caters for all tastes with both Americano and cappuccino options.
“We’re proud to be building on our partnership with De’Longhi, as we understand how important pretend play is for children’s development – especially during those all-important early years”Phil Cassidy, Managing Director at Casdon
In addition to this, the toy coffee machine has realistic sounds to mimic grinding beans as well as milk-frothing – similar to a real functioning De’Longhi Barista Coffee Machine, nurturing children’s coordination, imagination, social and motor skills and helping them learn through play.
Casdon is a third generation, family-focused business that believes in the power of play. Each toy Casdon creates captures a sense of fun and excitement and the De’Longhi Barista Coffee Machine toy follows the toy De’Longhi Microwave by Casdon which launched in 2022.
Phil Cassidy, Managing Director at Casdon, comments: “We’re proud to be building on our partnership with De’Longhi, as we understand how important pretend play is for children’s development – especially during those all-important early years.
“Feeling included in everyday things like getting ready for work can do wonders for children’s confidence and gives them a sense of independence. We’re really proud to be bringing the first barista-style coffee machine by Casdon, designed to do just that.”
De’Longhi Barista Coffee Machine by Casdon will be available from July 2023 in all key retailers including Smyths and Argos, RRP: £25.00.
