Valek - Kids Engraved Rolling Pins



I used to love to bake cookies with my mom and was so excited to share this tradition with my own family. My kids love to eat the cookie dough and then decorate, but they are never very involved in the rest of the process. Valek sent us an amazing engraved rolling pin that did the trick. Since getting this rolling pin, we have made cookies more times than I would like to admit.  

Valek - Kids Engraved Rolling Pins 

About: Engraved rolling pin made out of solid beech and protected with oil. The wood is laser engraved. It is almost 9.5 inches long and about 1.7 inches in diameter. Perfect size for any member of your family to use. Made with love in Poland.
Price: 20.00 (which is about $22.16 today) and shipping to the United States is about 11.50
Ease of Use: Easy to roll on design. Be generous with your flour and apply it directly to the dough to avoid the dough sticking to the rolling pin. When using it on play dough, the play dough will stick to the rolling pin but is fairly easy to peel off without loosing the design.  
Looks: The kids rolling have the following designs: cars, dinosaurs, cats, robots and foxes. You can also customize your rolling pin with your child's name! The designs are so crisp when rolling them on dough (cookies or play). 
Found At: Online at valekrollingpins.com 
Quality: They are made really well and they will last if you take care of them. Valek recommends wiping the rolling pin first with a brush, then if needed with water and soap and make sure it is dry before using again. This is wood, so avoid prolonged contact with water. 
Best Use: Baking and playing 
Our Rating: 5 out of 5 stars 


Why we like it: 

1. My kids loved playing with the rolling pin and ZDough -check out the review tomorrow!

2. Included with each rolling pin is the "Embossed Sugar Cookie Recipe" and these cookies are so delicious. I tried using the rolling pin with this recipe first. The designs turned out so perfect on the cookies and they were so good that I haven't tried using the rolling pin on any other recipe.

3. Valek also makes larger rolling pins. They have so many designs to choose from. Check them out, there is a design for every occasion!

4. They can engrave anything on the rolling pin. They say they can even engrave Nicolas Cage's face...I can't decide if I could eat a cookie with Nicolas Cage's face on it.
