Rated 5 out of 5 by from Play Knife and Velcro Pieces are great feature! Bought for granddaughter. She especially loves using the knife to "cut" and to pretend to serve to others. Easy for her to put the pieces back together with their Velcro attachment. Sturdy construction! Wish there was a lid on the box so items would always stay in place when stored.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'd recommend this set for 3 and up. This was a gift for my three year old grandson. He loved using the wooden knife to "cut" although some of the pieces were so snug we used a butter knife to get them apart the first time. The Velcro seems to be holding up well. His 10 and 11 year old sibs thought it was fun too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for a little chef. My little guy got this for Christmas, he is 3 years old and wants to help in the kitchen with everything. This gives him an opportunity to work on cutting skills safely. The only thing I would like to see different is maybe using magnets instead of Velcro to keep the pieces together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! 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!
Date published: 2014-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I rate this toy 10/10 This toy is delightful. Children learn how to count the bread slices and also how to put the loaf of bread back together like a puzzle. They can learn their colors by discussing the different fruit and vegetables. It is a very educational gift.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent learning toy! My son (just turned 2) LOVES this set. It took him about an hour of practice to master the cutting and now he is an expert. He also began doing some pretend play (pretending to eat the carrot), which he hadn't done much of before. Two things that are not so great: 1) there is only ONE knife included in the set. This makes it difficult for him to play with a friend or a sibling (we have one on the way). I had to be inventive and find a kitchen tool that his friend could use so they could play together. I would really suggest that M&D add a second knife to the set. 2) It is cheaply constructed. After just a couple days, the velcro is pulling away from one of the parts, though this is due to a 2yr old pulling the fruit apart rather than cutting it. I can easily glue this, but still. Additionally after several days of use, the knife (which is in two parts glued together) came apart. I will have to re-glue this as well, which is not a big deal. Overall love the product and it definitely inspires creative play!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful set! 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!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good fun My daughter uses these a lot - but rarely reassembles the various food items for use with the knife... she's 3 now but can imagine more detailed use in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this product! I bought this for my son for this second birthday. We both enjoy playing with it. I can't put the food back together fast enough for him to cut it. He has played with this toy more then any other toy he has ever gotten.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy 2 year old This was a present from Santa and it was a hit! My 2 year old played with it for hours and still does. He always wants to cut his food up at dinner so this was a perfect toy for him. The food goes back together very easily with the Velcro. Very good concept and hours of fun. The fact that they are wooden makes it even more appealing as they will last forever. I would highly recommend this toy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So cute, but... The cutting food is great. My daughter just got it for her second birthday to go along with her new kitchen. She loves to make sandwiches, and count the pieces after she has cut them. However, I'm very disappointed in the finish. We just opened the package on Saturday (6 days ago), and the paint is chipping on the yellow pepper, the tomato, and the cucumber. The knife "blade" is splintering. I have friends that bought this years ago, and it still looks great. I'm very surprised at the condition of ours already.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 2 year LOVES this!! My 2 year old loves this! We spend lots of time playing with these. I put them together and she starts cutting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from cutting board cracked We just received this for our daughter's birthday. So far she loves it (making a lot of soup) but I was disappointed for two reasons. One, there was a sizable crack in the cutting board when we took it out of the packaging, right through the handle. It is otherwise a seemingly sturdy little maple cutting board, but come on. Two, there is no inventory of what the items are that are included in the set and, frankly they are not terribly realistic nor easily identifiable. My daughter who knows what all of the real versions of these items are couldn't tell what some of these were. Something a bit funny about having to explain what this fake food is supposed to represent. All that said, the cutting is great (I wonder how long the velcro will hold) and the division of the items into different portions (halves, quarters, thirds, etc.) is useful. Color variety is good, too (though I would recommend an eggplant! ). Broccoli would be fun, too. Pear. Mushroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 3 yr. old boy LOVES this! My 3 yr. old boy picked this out, he loves helping me in the kitchen but it can be very unsafe. This lets him make his own "meals". He is obsessed with butter knives, now that he has his own "knife" to cut with he doesn't try to grab knives from the kitchen. We like to play restaurant, he gets his toy cash register, we set up his small table and chair and he creates meals and sells them to his parents. The set is very well made, solid wood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps my toddler occupied Bought this product along with the corner wooden kitchen. My daughter enjoys the crunch sound while slicing the wooden food. She also enjoys playing pretend cooking. As a parent, I use this product for her to learn her colors and to learn how to count the wooden slices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from helps with hand eye coordination As soon as I opened the kids couldn't stop playing with it for hours. Helped them figure out how things go back together.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from okay toy I bought this for my son today and he loves it! I like it, too. Sadly, it has a very, very strong paint smell and I don't know if that is normal. It makes me wonder if there is lead in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great toy! Great Toy!!!! My 2 1/2 year old daughter has played with this for hours on end. It really helps with motor skills. She had broken her arm recently and we were looking for something to encourage her to use both hands and this toy was perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our "Hi-yah" fun! My son is only 17 months and absolutely loves his "Hi-ya!" toy. He says "hi-ya" when cutting the food. He can play with this toy for hours and it has been so good for his hand-eye coordination. My husband does daycare and ALL of the kids, 17m - 4yrs love to play with this. It's a great and smart toy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Toy! This play food set is great! Our two year old daughter received this as a Christmas gift and enjoys it very much. The set is durable, realistic, and colorful. The only thing I would change is adding a lid to the crate or some sort of sleeve into which the crate can slide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Lasting Fun!!! My daughter has had this set for 2 and a half years now and it has continued to be a favorite. She is now 5 and her brother is 2 and they play with this food set several times a week. I cannot tell you how many wooden sandwiches and soups I have "eaten" that have been prepared on the little cutting board. Nothing has worn out and it still keeps them occupied. If you have young children, this will definately keep them entertained.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A big hit with my sons! My 3 year old son received this gift for Christmas after falling in love with it during a recent Parents As Teachers home visit. He really wants to cut his food at the dinner table now, which doesn't always go so well for him. This toy lets him safely cut to his heart's content, while offering up opportunities for sensory integration (the cutting sound made by the velcro is very interesting to him) and imaginative play. His 2 year old brother enjoys sticking the foods together and taking them apart by hand- he's not so good with the knife just yet.
Date published: 2010-01-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great play food set!! This set is one of my son's favorite. He likes to "cut" the fruit, veggies, and breads. It is great for color recognition, counting pieces, and introducting fractions. We also make sandwiches with the bread and tomato sandwiches. A big favorite by his friends also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a terrific play set. I searched a long time to find good quality play food for my granddaughter's Xmas kitchen she's getting, and finally found Melissa and Doug products. This "cutting set" is brightly colored with many foods that stick together with velcro. Also a wooden knife for "cutting" and a little cutting board are included. I know she will love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from JUST LOVE IT! This is so much fun. My kids want to cut thier own food and this is the perfect preactice without seeming educational. They use the food ion the play kitchen and cut it apart for hours.. Love the little cuttiing board too. Sometimes they have trouble getting the parts back together but are learning that too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! My son received this set as a gift from his grandparents when he was 3. Three years later, he STILL loves to play with this, as do visiting children of various ages. I was surprised to see 8-year-olds fascinated by "cutting" wooden food. But they're right, there is something very satisfying about the realistic "crunch" sound that the velcro makes as you push against it with the wooden knife. This set has proven itself sturdy, and very adaptable. Well worth the money. We whole-heartedly recommend this set!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Toy of All Time! I had this toy for my now 8 yr old twins. My boys loved this toy! Every child who came over to my house (all age groups) have loved it. They play with it for hours. I now have an 8 mth old & ordering a set for him. I think this is the best toy we've ever had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent toy! My child is 2 1/2 and my girlfriends child is 3, and both of our girls LOVE this toy. I like that I can use it to work on colors and counting. My daughter would sit and play with it for hours if I would keep puting the pieces back together for her. The knife is a little thick for the pieces when it is new, but as the velcro gets some wear it works better. It appears that if the velcro should wear out from lots of play it could be easily replaced. Overall it is a great toy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thing EVER!!! My daughter saw this set on display at a store and could not leave it alone! My in-laws got it for her for her 3rd birthday. She has yet to go a day without playing with it! I LOVE it! She can play with her cutting set while I'm fixing dinner and feel like she's helping! All 4 of my girls enjoy playing with it (ages 3-10). The hardest thing for my girls is matching up the pieces correctly. Some of the pieces are a bit tricky to tell which side match up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great toy I bought this for my 2 year old. He played with it the whole weekend. His older cousins, 5, 8, and 12 also had fun playing with it. It's made well and the kids really liked being able to cut just like adults. I would highly recommend it.
