Product Description

Ideally suited for stocking a play kitchen or shopping cart, this cutting fruit set combines hands-on fun and unique learning with creative play. The seven included fruits (pear, orange, melon, kiwi, strawberry, banana, and lemon) can be cut up into 17 hand-painted wooden pieces using the included wooden knife, then neatly tucked away in the sturdy storage crate. Kids can't resist the realistic 'crunch' sound when the fruit is sliced! In addition to teaching fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination, this set encourages imaginative and independent play and even introduces the concept of fractions. Bilateral coordination is promoted as children use one hand to hold the food and the other hand to slice with the knife, while hand-eye coordination practice is encouraged for proper knife placement. Includes cutting board, knife and 8 sliceable food items.

      Comments about Melissa & Doug Cutting Fruit Set in A Wooden Storage Box:

      I purchased several of these play sets for my granddaughter and also for the toddler I nanny for. Melissa and Doug products are high quality toys at affordable prices! The fruits included in this play set are very realistic, and they just happen to be favorite foods of the two little girls I am giving them to. I would definitely purchase additional play food sets from Melissa and Doug!

          We bought the veggies and the fruit, my 5 year old loves these. They have them at her TK school and she plays with them a lot there and now she can play with them at home. She's getting more use out of our toy kitchen set than before using these new additions.

                    We've had these for 4 months now and the kids love them. They love playing with them, cutting and taking them on "picnics" (to the living room). it definitely has sparked some imaginative play.

                    Quality is good, still holding up great!

                      Something different than your average play food. Mixes colors, and shapes, helps small motor skills. The Velcro could be stronger.

                          This product is great for little ones. It is a good alternative to plastic toy food that doesn't do anything special. Here you have a set of toy food that helps with hand eye coordination & I'm sure other things I'm not even aware of ! It has been very durable for our family as well.

                            My 20 month old daughter loves this product! She immediately figured out how to cut the fruit and thinks it is really cool to be able to put it back together and start again. The construction is great, the velcro is really strong and has not worn down - the wooden crate that the fruit comes in, is really great too! The knife is also a great way to teach her about "Mommy's knives" and her knife, so that she learns to use only her "safe knife" as we call it.
                            I truly love all Melissa & Doug products!
