Disney Eats: Ready, Set, Cook! Encourages Kids & Parents to Cook Together...

Written by

I think most parents have probably tried their hand at making "Mickey Mouse Pancakes" at some point, and if you're like me - the results have varied greatly. Overall, it's not really the end result that's important, but how you get there - and that's what caught my eye about the new Disney Eats collection. Available now from my affiliates at ShopDisney.com and coming 4/23 to Disney Store, Disney Eats encourages kids and grownups to get cooking together. It's an entire collection of new kitchen items including whisks, mixing bowls and spoons featuring classic Mickey and Minnie - and they come in "big" and "little" sets depending on the size of the cook.

Here's a few highlights of what Disney Eats has to offer:

  • Mickey Mouse Apron and Oven Mitt Set for Adults ($29.95) –  Be a fa-mouse chef in your own kitchen with this colorful Mickey-inspired set. With an apron and glove-shaped oven mitts, making and baking magic will be easy. Your little Mouseketeers can cook alongside you, too, with our Kids' Set, sold separately.
  • Minnie Mouse Chef's Hat and Apron Set for Kids ($19.95) – They'll cook up something wonderful in our polka dot apron and chef's hat featuring Minnie Mouse ears. This essential set is the perfect ingredient to make family mealtimes magical.
  • Mickey Mouse Measuring Spoon Set ($7.95) – Mickey lends a hand in the kitchen with this measuring spoon set from Disney Eats. His glove tops the handle of each spoon, making it easy for your Mouseketeer to lend a hand, too!
  • Minnie Mouse Food Cutter Set ($14.95) – Add a little magic to meal time with this Minnie Mouse-inspired food cutter set from Disney Eats! Minnie's icon, bow and a flower are prepared to make the fruit and sandwiches on your plate look even more delicious and fun.

And if you want to make those famous Mickey Mouse Pancakes? There's a recipe for that.
