Product Description

Slice it, dice it, and serve it up! Our handcrafted wooden food treats are held together with self-stick tabs that make a satisfying "crunch" when cut with the child-safe wooden knife. This beautifully crafted set includes eight realistic-looking food items apple, pepper, tomato, cucumber, carrot, sandwich bread, a loaf of bread, and a slice of watermelon that can be chopped into more than 25 separate pieces. Slice and serve on the wooden cutting board and pack up all the pieces neatly in the sturdy wooden crate to take mealtime fun anywhere! This wooden Cutting Food set makes it deliciously fun for budding young chefs two and older to play and learn! Slicing and cutting these beautifully crafted and painted fruits, vegetables, and grains satisfies the senses and helps teach fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Cutting Food play can nourish cognitive development, too, by introducing the concepts of part, whole, and fractions, and teaching early number skills, color recognition, sorting, and grouping. Feed the imagination and creativity with this durable and versatile set!

        My three year old received this as a Christmas present. He loves it. We order "real" pizza once a week and Roman loves to make his own version with this toy. It is well made and carefully crafted. I have nothing bad to say!

          My son is 2 1/2 and has developmental delays. I wasn't sure if he would be able to use this right away, but it looked so cute I bought it for Christmas. It is the best toy out of many he received this year. He loves to pretend to slice the veggies, fruits and bread, just like mommy. He needs some help to reassemble the pieces and line up the knife, but loves the satisfying crunch as the velcro gives way. When all the pieces are cut up, we put them in pots to make soup. This is a fun activity in the kitchen when I'm busy cooking and my son is busy dumping pieces in and out and stirring away at his pretend meal. Love this toy!

                This toy is great for little ones who wanna cook like mom and dad but can't handle knives. My little ones love it they like to use the veggies and bread to make me sandwiches. Great toy for imagination and dexterity, they have to learn to hold the food while cutting. I did find that some of the food is harder to cut than others but it works to help with theie skill levels.

                    My son absolutely loves that he can cut food just like mommy. It was great to help his motor skills develop as he held the knife in just the right spot to cut and then reassembled the pieces. He loved to cut and "cook" the pieces in his pretend kitchen. I just wish that the velcro would last a little longer because sometimes he just picks up a whole fruit and the pieces come off. Also, had it not been on sale for 50% off at AC Moore, I would not have purchased it because I felt it was too pricey at its regular price.

                      My daughter who is three and my 17 month old son equally love this toy! My husband and I bought this for our daughter for her birthday this year because she loves play food. She loves putting the food pieces together and then carefully cutting them apart. My son loves to chew on them and we learn about colors and shapes as he plays with them! I love that these are so well made and realistic! I can't wait to purchase more Melissa and Doug wooden food sets!!
