+ what is playability?
Wooden set features a wooden knife and seven pieces of sliceable fruit that can be cut into a total of seventeen pieces. Food makes a fun "CRUNCH" sound when sliced. With so many pieces, it's also a great way to introduce the concepts of part, whole and fractions! Ages 3 yrs+.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy food play My students get a great kick out of the cutting fruit set. It not only encourages imaginative play, but it is a great way to practice practical life learning as well as hand-eye coordination needed for real cutting in the future. It is a great way to subtly encourage and emphasis healthy eating too. I just bought this one for my son for Christmas. I can't wait to see him play with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loves it! Our almost 2yo loves this toy! He's a very busy guy, so it's nice to find something that has him sitting still for more than five minutes! : ) After he successfully slices through a piece, he lifts his arms and yells, "Yay!" We got him this for Easter, and it was *well* worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GRANDSON LOVES THIS! Gave this to our grandson when he turned 2 and he loved it. He has to do "cutting" as soon as he gets up in the morning and before he goes to bed at night. We decided to get this for him because mom and dad bought a mini kitchen set for him and we thought this would go great with it, we were right!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice toy Nice toy, however the paint peeled and chipped very quickly. It looks as if I've had it for 10 years...when actually it's only been four weeks!! My son still loves it, I just have to make sure he isn't cutting his fingers on the paint chips.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cut the velcro right off... My daughter received this as a gift to add to her kitchen set. She loved playing with the food and trying to master "cutting" the slices. However, after only one or two uses, most of the velcro has come off the food slices. This could cause a choking hazard for young children as well as the inconvenience of it not working anymore (not "sticking together) for cutting.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Paint chipped and didn't hold up :o( I love this. So my rating is not exactly accurate. My 2 year old loves this very much!! I bought this for my boys just two weeks ago at a local consignment shop that exclusively carries new Melissa and Doug products retail, (they are not used or second hand) To my dismay by the second day the paint was already chipping away and they looked banged up. Today, two weeks later, the fruit pieces look as if I've had them for 10 years. Bad quality, I'm hoping this was just a mistake in the painting and to either get a replacement or refund.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not as durable as I thought. I have lots of Melissa and Doug food sets in my preschool. I love them and they are one of the kids favorites, but the wood and paint chips off. I thought when I bought all these sets(5), about a year ago, that they would last longer. Im looking into other brands for wood food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What fun! What fun! I think I played with it for twenty minutes before I gave it to my daughter! Such a simple concept and such a neat toy. My two-year-old daughter loves to "help" me in the kitchen, but of course, can't use knives. This gives her the chance to play along. We've also been able to talk about the concept of whole and parts and the idea of fractions.
