This adorable food cart will instantly delight preschoolers with its bright colors, light and sound effects, and engaging play opportunities.

LeapFrog’s Build-a-Slice Pizza Cart is full of educational, role-play fun for preschoolers ages 3 and up. The cart features a pretend oven, a cash register, a menu board, a bell, a storage drawer, a spatula, a topping storage section, a turntable, a push handle, and rolling wheels. It comes complete with six magnetic topping accessories, four pizza slices, a plate, a pizza box, a pizza cutter, a cheese shaker, play money, and a plastic pizza stone.

This playset features tons of sound effects, music, and phrases, and guides kids along their pizza-making journey. Kids can start by pressing the bell, and the pizza cart will tell them what type of pizza to make. Will it be a cheesy slice with triangle toppings, a savory slice with circular olives, or a spicy slice with round pepperoni? Kids will learn about shapes, colors, and more as they piece together the perfect pizza.

The toppings click right into place on each pizza slice, and kids can rotate the turntable to spin their slices around. Once their slice is assembled, they can use the spatula which will recognize what topping they’ve added, and let them know if they got the order correct. Then, they can pop it onto the pizza stone and stick it in the oven, which even has a clicky dial kids can turn to set the temperature and enjoy some fun music and phrases in English and Italian while they wait.

And any pizza-lover will tell you, it’s not ready to eat until you top it with grated cheese. The pizza cart even has a cute little cheese shaker kids can grab to finish off their pizza creation before serving it up on a plate or in the little pizza box.

Not only will kids pretend to be seasoned pizza chefs, but also pint-size entrepreneurs. The Pizza Cart comes with some adorably named “pizza dough” bills and gold coins that pretend customers can offer up in exchange for a delicious slice with the perfect toppings. There’s even a mini cash register complete with fun sound effects to give little business owners the chance to ring up their customers’ purchases– and press some pretty fun buttons and learn numbers along the way.

Parents and caregivers will love that everything stores neatly away when playtime ends. There’s a convenient storage drawer for anything that doesn’t fit inside the oven, or all of the pieces can be set up nicely in their designated spots on top of the cart for a nice little display.

Kids will obviously enhance their fine motor skills with this playset, but the push handle and rolling wheels allow them to wheel it around the house for pizza time anywhere, which will help enhance their gross motor skills, too!

The Build-a-Slice Pizza Cart has so much educational value baked in, not to mention how easy it is to assemble (takes less than 5 minutes), how lightweight it is to move around the house, and the fact that it comes with tons of fun accessories, but it DOESN’T have a million teeny tiny pieces you’ll lose all over the place. Parents will love how much their kids will learn while enjoying this playset. Put simply: é perfetto!


Kids can ring the bell on this interactive pizza cart to hear a customer's order. They'll learn about colors, shapes, numbers, and food names as they build a pizza with the included toppings and accessories.
