WASHINGTON (SBG) — Working from home and parenting little ones is no joke. As million of families know, juggling these tasks while coping with a global pandemic is a challenge – to say the least.

Fisher-Price is introducing a new line of toys for babies and toddlers who want to spend more time with mom or dad while they get the job done.

Parents can put those little hands and minds to work with the "My Home Office" set, complete with a toy laptop, four fabric "apps" to attach to the computer screen, a wooden smartphone and headset, and even a pretend coffee cup.

"Better grab a latte to go, that report is due this morning and there’s a call with the dog across the street after naptime. With the Fisher-Price My Home Office set, your preschooler is the boss of their own workstation at home, the local coffee shop, or the moon," the product's description reads.

Another toy set will allow your child to play chef. The four-piece "Cutest Chef" gift set comes with a bib designed like a bib, a chewable oven mitt, a crinkle recipe card and play tongs with a meatball that spins.

And just in case your child still has energy after a long day of "working" and "cooking," there's a "Baby Biceps" gift set that has a play dumbbell and kettlebell, headband and a pretend protein shake drink cup.

When it's safe to travel again, your baby will be a professional at vacations and stay-cations. The toy company's "Tiny Tourist" gift set sports four travel-themed baby toys: a pretend camera to rattle and click, a crinkly bottle of sunscreen, a chewy passport teether, and a wearable bib.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, both Fisher-Price and Mattel have created action figures of first responders and frontline workers.
