Play market stalls are popular toys among children and parents. Children love playing them because they are open ended and not bound to a single playstyle. They can play roles as a vendor or buyer which is good for imaginative play. Parents love buying these playsets for their children because of their developmental value. Market stall toys provide children with a safe environment to role play, experiment and explore new ideas. Not to mention, it allows children to learn new skills and refine skills they already have.

Not a lot of toys offer the same flexibility play market stalls have to offer. There are so many easy ways to play them and make every play time more fun and entertaining. This makes market stall toys a good investment because you and your children can get the most out of your money from playing with these toys. Here are a few fun ways to play with market stall toys.

Toy accessories and props

Toy accessories and props like vegetables, fruits and grocery items make role playing as a vendor or buyer more realistic and frankly it makes role playing more engaging.

There is a huge selection of play market stalls. Some sets are small enough and provide portability. These market stall sets are good toys to encourage your children to play outside of your house. Usually these sets come with portable containers so that children can easily bring them wherever they go.

Some toy market stalls do not come with accessories and props. These sets are cheaper compared to those that come with accessories. If you are tight on funds, these sets are highly recommended. Your children can use their other toys as accessories and props. For instance, if your child has building blocks or play food, they can pretend to sell these toys. Or you and your children can make your own props using hobby craft supplies. This is particularly fun for children because they get to use their imagination and creativity.

Other popular market store accessories include shopping bags, shopping carts and tills. If your set did not come with these and you do not want to buy them separately, you can use items in your house instead. Your children can use your tote shopping bags instead. Additionally, your children can use their sorter as a till and the sorter pieces as currency. Or they can use their numbered building blocks if they have them.

You can also use household items like old shoe boxes and storage containers as display boxes. Making your own display boxes out of cardboard is also a good way to bond with your children. Let them help you make the display boxes and allow them to decide on the design and colours.

Another good idea is make your own market stall. There are many tutorials and resources online. If you have power tools and are good in woodworking, this should be easy for you.
