Add some nutritious treats to your pretend kitchen with the Melissa & Doug Wooden Cutting Fruit Set. This set comes with seven different pieces of fruit, including a banana and lemon. Each fruit is held together in pieces by hook-and-loop closures. Slice and serve by cutting through the fruit with the wooden utensil, hearing the fun "crunch" sound as you go. Use the wooden tray to serve fruit to your friends and family while learning hand-eye coordination and motor and social skills. Unleash your creativity as you set up your own pretend farmer's market or have a yummy picnic party. Teach your guests about the healthy fruit, then store them inside the crate for easy cleanup.

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.

We bought this along with the Deluxe Kitchen play center for our 2 year old daughter for Christmas 2009. She absolutely loves it. She cuts the fruit apart and bring mommy and daddy a slice. We play in her kitchen with her for hours. The fruit has helped her with colors and names of the fruits. Her hand eye coordination while cutting has improved! I love how she informs me that its "Her knife" and will not hurt her, however at the table she demands we get the butter knifes away because they are not her knife and can hurt her. She puts together that they are the same, but slightly different. It has been awonderful learning toy!

Comments about Melissa & Doug Cutting Fruit Set - Wooden Play Food Kitchen Accessory:

This will be a huge hit! She got the cookie set, and when she figured out that you could slice things.....WOW! seriously she will play with this for over an hour (she is 2 1/2)

My only request would be a place to purchase lost pieces....with young children pieces get lost so easy....like the icing on the cookies...we are missing 1 and she gets a bit upset when we can't find it when she puts them all together. SO replacement parts would be great!

      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!
