Rated 5 out of 5 by Mascara 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by K&PMom 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 mommy for the first time 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 pipandgabesmom2011 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 5 out of 5 by Prochristo 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nick's Mom 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.
