I bought my son a play kitchen last Xmas and I didn't want to get him a bunch of cheaply made plastic/cardboard food so my mother bought this for him and he just loves it! All of the food is so cute and durable but it's also healthy food instead of junk and fast food. The only thing is it looks like there are two egg halves but his set only came with one. I would recommend spending a little more to get this great food set than to buy the cheap plastic food and have to keep replacing it after it gets smashed.

    Comments about Melissa & Doug Deluxe Wooden Food Groups Play Set:

    This is a gift to my 2 year old grand daughter. I was pleased with the arrival of the gift
    as it came a number of days earlier than expected. It is a quality toy that has both
    educational value in teaching healthy food groups, color identification and imaginary play.
    She will be receiving a small play kitchen for her birthday which will enhance her enjoyment
    of this gift greatly. I am excited to see her face when she unwraps her birthday presents.

          My son loves using these in his play kitchen. They are durable and nice quality. The wooden baskets fit perfectly in the stove of his Step 2 kitchen for storage. So glad I got this set.

              My kids LOVE this! We homeschool our six year old twins and they love playing house with their little brother. We have bought other kitchen/food play items before but they didn't last even a day. These have lasted for a while now and that is saying something when it comes to my kids. They are learning about trading goods and these things are built to last. Could not be happier.

                Very Fun Way to Teach and Reinforce

                About Me Grandparent, Stay At Home Parent

                Comments about Melissa & Doug Deluxe Wooden Food Groups Play Set:

                Pretend play is especially difficult for our eight-year-old autistic daughter; this wonderful "toy" has been an exception! This set, which we bought her for Christmas, is fantastic. The pieces look relatively realistic. Though her speech is limited, she was able to name all of the components. With practice, she has learned to build sandwiches and such - including pretending to slice the tomatoe and onion. She puts the steak on a sandwich, too and asks for condiments! An added bonus was that her classroom began a new chapter in health, Healthy Foods, right after Christmas break. This was a very physical reinforcer for her. She and I have already spent hours "playing" with the set. We have also combined pieces (sliced cheese, mushrooms, etc) from other Melissa and Doug food play groups to expand our fun.

                    Another amazing product from Melissa and Doug! I didn't want to get the cheap plastic food and have it all over my house, not only that but it's so unrealistic looking. This is a great well made product, comes in little wooden crates to keep everything organized, and a fun way to introduce healthy eating to your little one :) love it

                      My only suggestion to Melissa and doug items need a storage container with a lid to keep the items better organized. Love Melissa and Doug products. I have bought many items for my grandkids and this is my only complaint.

                        This is great! No parts to break off, no hollow plastic to collapse! My son and niece will have great times together playing with this and the pizza/birthday party sets I purchased.

                        They only flaws I can find are: The hamburger is green (ick! Who would eat green meat?) and the four food groups died out in 1992 when the food pyramid was introduced.

                        Other than that, I love this product!!!
