Kids love serving up their delicious pizza creations with the wooden pizza cutter and server. View larger.
With 54 pizza toppings, children can customize pies for their friends and family. View larger.
The wooden pizza consists of six "slices" that are held together by Velcro. Each piece has three Velcro disks for attaching the pizza toppings. Your child can assemble the pizza right on the cheerful green pizza tray. Using pepperoni, mushroom, or peppers, or a combination of the three toppings, she can make a pizza that almost looks good enough to eat.
Once the pizza is "ready," the child can use the pizza cutter to cut the pizza. It actually has a rolling blade, just like an authentic utensil, and since the pizza slices are held together with Velcro, it makes a fun crunching sound when it's cut. Your little pizza chef can then dish out pizza to her customers with the included server. (Note that the toy kitchen utensils are not meant for use with real food or with real kitchen appliances.)
Play and Learn
Pretend play is a very important part of childhood development, and the Pizza Party toy gives children fun, straightforward tools to inspire their imaginations. We also love that this toy is perfect for both independent and interactive playtime, giving parents the opportunity to help kids learn while playing, too. For example, children can learn counting concepts while preparing pizza: ask them to count the number of mushrooms on the pizza, or to put 10 peppers on her pizza.
Sturdy Wood Construction
The Pizza Party comes with 54 disk-shaped pizza toppings -- three of each kind -- which is enough to create an all-pepperoni, all-peppers, or all-mushroom pizza, as well as make up whatever combination your child chooses. We like that there are an abundance of toppings pieces, so that the inevitable loss of a couple of pieces won't ruin the whole toy. That said, we do wish that the cute, painted wood storage container came with a cover to help keep the pieces in place a bit better.
With its sturdy wood construction and high-quality materials, this toy is made to last. And as with all of their products, Melissa & Doug states that this toy is made with non-toxic coatings and meets or exceeds US toy testing standards.

My daughter loves this toy! It is one of her favorite play foods, and I am about sick of pizza! There are quite a few pieces to the set and I would not recommend this for a household where elements of toys are easily destroyed or lost. The velcro attaches easily.
This is a great toy to begin teaching counting and fractions. We also own the Cutting Food Box by Lights, Camera, Interaction. We were initially introduced to these great toy products by my aunt who teaches violin. She uses these toys to explain musical notation and fractions. The utilization of this toy for introductory math has been invaluable for teaching our daughter. Sometimes we don't realize how much she understands these concepts. The parts hold up extremely well to the 2 1/2 year old age group, but I must reiterate - these are not for a family that doesn't not keep up with parts to games or toys. It is also a toy that is best used with hands-on adult expaination. The most educational experience can be derived that way (I guess, as with all things in life.)
What is especially fun is when she mixes the 2 toys together and I get a slice of pizza with a carrot or watermelon slice on it.
Overall I'm very pleased with this play set. It is excellent quality, very durable for little kid play and its relatively safe- no harmful chemicals or sharp edges or anything like that. Its colorful and realistic enough without being cartoonish but it is obvious its a toy- my 5 and 2 year old know this is NOT real food. However, if you have a toddler prone to putting small toys in their mouths- especially anything that looks like food- be aware that the "toppings" will look very appetizing!
The price is great too! In our local stores, a Melissa & Doug play set usually runs around $20+ and I try to shop at places that accept 20% coupons, but with my Prime membership, this was a great deal! And these play sets make great gifts as the wooden packaging serves as storage as well. (Our playsets are stacked in my kids' "kitchen" with the writing right on the side identifying what each play set is; I love it!)
I highly recommend this and all of Melissa & Doug's wooden food play sets!

Your toddler won't care, but the toppings can't fit in all the spots very well. Again, though, your toddler won't care.Published 6 days ago by Heather Smith
