      My daughtes loved playing kitchen when she was 3 and 4. These toys are well made, like most Melissa and Doug toys. The kids can cut up these foods as they are held together with velco. A lot of fun

      I seriously don't know who enjoys this better--me or my daughter. My mom got her this set for Christmas and I love it! The food is cut, but velcroed together. It comes with a cutting board and a knife and when you cut the pieces apart they make a wonderful ripping noise as the velcro detaches. My daughter rarely uses the knife to cut them apart, though. At a year old, she's just not at that stage yet. However, she loves putting the food in her mouth, practicing saying the names of the different fruits, veggies, and the bread, and serving food to my husband and I. Soon, she'll realize how wonderful it is to cut them apart too!

      As a teacher, I need to find toys that are sturdy, durable, have a high "fun factor," and foster creativity during play. This toy has stood up under repeated toddler use; the paint still looks fresh, the velcro that hooks the food together has never torn or peeled off, and the cutting board remains smooth and new-looking. My students love this wooden food set that they can cut into pieces and play chef. The knife did splinter after a while, but I simply sanded it smooth and all was well. Excellent toy to help children build their vocabulary, improve fine motor skills, foster pretend play, and improving social skills such as sharing and turn taking. Great conversation starter, "Do you like watermelon?" Excellent value for the money.
