Description


This wooden play food set features a wooden knife and seven pieces of sliceable fruit that can be cut into a total of seventeen pieces! Held together with self-stick tabs, the food makes a fun and satisfying "CRUNCH" sound when sliced. With so many pieces, it's also a great way to introduce counting and the concepts of part, whole, and fractions!

Great puzzle to promote color and shape recognition!

This is a great puzzle. My 15 month can put the pieces together and it's a great way to talk about colors and shapes. My only complaint is I received a slightly damaged board when ordering it online so it's hard to put the circle piece in and the corner of the board looks smashed ?

I bought this to add to grandma's play food stash. Our 3 year old grandson loved cutting the food up over and over again! He was a little puzzled at first if the opening was not big enough to fit the wooden knife blade, but he quickly figured it out. A great toy!

Two year old kid loves it, gets him to stay put and play for half an hour atleast. The sound of the velcro gives it a realistic chopping sound.
I also like that it's made of wood.

Fun but not super durable
By AP
from Salem NH
on April 19, 2021
My daughter loves loves loves this kit! It's colorful and fun. Unfortunately, I want to echo one of the reviews below that the velcro starts to fail after a few weeks of use, especially on the melon and the banana. The paint also starts to crack and peel after a while, which makes it unusable because I worry about my toddler eating the pieces.

I loved this set at first. Very entertaining for my child. Child loves the kiwi and cutting the fruits. Unfortunately the melon and banana don't stick well after a while. The velcro is pretty much not working and is to small to even keep it together.

These are MY favorite as well as my grandkids. Who doesn't like cutting up the realistic fruit? We have the veggie and bread set too. Makes for long play sessions of make believe and serving us food. I store mine in the original crate in a case made for scrapbooking. I think they learned what a kiwi and a lemon were from this set. Well made. Durable.

Fun toy but paint chips
By Ashley C.
from Rochester, NY
on July 25, 2020
My 2 year old daughter loves to play with this set. She intentionally pulls it out and "cuts" the fruit everyday since she received it a month ago. However, within a couple uses, the paint began to chip along the middle of the fruit. Obviously, as a 2 year old, her precision isn't 100% and the knife rubs against the surface as she's trying to "cut" the fruits in half, but I'm surprised they're not more durable.

Great product. My granddaughter is learning the names of fruits and loves it. And the customer service at Melissa & Doug is outstanding. The packer had put the wrong order in my box. I complained on a Saturday and had a new order with the correct merchandise by Tuesday. Also, a rep called me & gave me a discount on my next purchase.. Their service is topnotch, as is their product.

Paint Chips Easily
By ladydowling
from Salem, OR
on May 2, 2020
I wanted to get these for my daughter cause I loved them when I was young. We've had them two months now, and I was really disappointed that the paint chips off really easily. It already looks like they were mine i had as a child. I think these would have been better executed better as unfinished wood...
