You should definitely play with your food. Toca Kitchen is the best durn kids game I've seen in some time, letting your little ones open up the fridge and decide what's for dinner.
The game is totally open ended, and there's tons to explore. Just pick from the four characters - a girl, a boy, a cat, and a bull - and decide what you'd like to simmer up for your hungry diner. Choose from ingredients like a pear, a steak, an egg, and a head of broccoli, then decide how you'd like to prepare it. Chop it up with swipes on the cutting board, or toss it in the microwave. Sizzle it in the saucepan or boil it in the water. The ingredient will change in physical appearance depending on what you do to it, and it's ridiculous fun to create, for example, sautéed broccoli mush, then subsequently feed it to your unsuspecting guest. Combine ingredients to your hearts content, and see if the cat will eat a scrumptious mushroom-lemon combo...
Graphic and sound design are flawless. The open-ended discovery style gameplay is just perfect for kids, and adults with a silly sense of humor as well (I don't think I've giggled this much reviewing a game in ages). It's vaguely educational in a very practical way - a steak is probably better sauteed than blended, for example - but the most fun bit is coming up with wacky, unpalatable combos anyway.
Toca Kitchen is a gorgeous crafted title for the miniature budding chef in your life.
