I am usualy a big fan of Melissa & Doug toys, however upon reading the toy safety review for this item (put out by HealthyStuff dot Org), I was upset to find that this toy scored a Chemical Level of Medium (High is worst, Low is best). This toy was found to contain Chlorine (PVC). Flexible PVC plastic can contain plasticizers called phthalates. Therefore, detection of high levels of chlorine infers the possible presence of phthalates.

Phthalates, depending on the level of exposure and the type of phthalate, have been linked to harm to reproductive development, especially in boys. They have also been linked to asthma.

My two year eight month old granddaughter loves playing with these.

Several negative reviews complain that these are made of plastic not wood, and my reaction is: (1) Melissa & Doug clearly state these are made of plastic, 2) who cares. They hold up quite well.

I have not experienced any chemical smell. As for the supposed safety concerns of the materials composing these, I have found these in children's museums in NY and NJ, and really doubt those places would purchase toys that are dangerous to the thousands of children who play with them each year.

Bottom line: This is a really nice toy.

Update September 22, 2013: These have gotten a lot of use and still look like new. Definitely a very durable toy.

Update March 15, 2014: Now my 11 month old grandson is also playing with these. Definitely a great toy.

My 16-month-old daughter loves to mimic me and play pretend, so I have been searching for play food for her. I was unable to find any that was labelled for smaller children, but I figured I could buy these and simply withold the strawberries. As it turns out, even the strawberries are too large for my daughter to get them all the way in her mouth, so I do not have to worry. She loves them! She gathers them all in her basket and then hands them out, pretending to eat. In know that they will continue to provide entertainment and learning possibilities as she gets older. There was only the slightest hint of "new toy" smell when I opened the package, but it dissapated quickly. The size and coloring of each peice is very realistic. Just perfect.

This is a beautiful, realistic set of fruit, but I was a bit concerned to read this link: [...]. My son doesn't put them in his mouth, so we haven't gotten rid of them, but I think a buyer should be aware of the chemicals in the plastic.

I have purchased Melissa and Doug vegetables a while back and was thoroughly impressed so I decided to order the fruits. These fruits came from China and they smelled very bad like chemicals and also were not in Melissa and Doug packaging. The fruits are soft and flimsy compared to the real Melissa and Doug vegetables I bought from a store. I feel completely jipped as these did not come with a packing paper for returning. I will be throwing these away bc they dont seem safe at all for my 19 month old. They are made from styrofoam!!!! The cut one is the crappy orange that came with the set.

I have six children, so as you can imagine this is not my first experience with toy food. In fact, my children have been given quite a few sets of toy food over the years by various family members. All of them were cheap thin plastic that split and caved in in very short order. All of them had lost at least half of their items to the trash can within a year. I've had other Melissa & Doug products in the past, and in general, been very happy with them. So, I decided this year that I would buy the toy food, and I would pay the extra money to get something that should last.

I was thrilled as soon as I opened the packaging. This is heavy-duty plastic. There will be no caving in. No seams to be splitting. This stuff is very solid and very durable. It's also very realistic-looking too, life-size. I just wish they made more toy food in the durable plastic. Almost all of their toy food is wooden like Melissa & Doug Food Groups, which we found to be very artificial-feeling and not nearly as pleasant to play with.

The 2-year-old birthday boy loves both this set and Melissa & Doug Playtime Veggies, as do his older sisters (7, 5, and 3 1/2). I cannot recommend these sets highly enough. I have no interest in any other toy food. I hope the day comes when Melissa & Doug will expand their line of durable plastic foods.

We just bought this for our 2 year-old daughter. I was eager to replace it with the poor quality, not to mention, unhealthful food choices she already had.

The fruit is actual size and looks very real. She enjoys playing with them in her kitchen and pushing them around in her shopping cart.

From an educational standpoint, it's a good learning tool to teach fruits, colors as well as count.

Very good quality product. I'm adding the vegetables to her collection. I have yet to be letdown by a Melissa & Doug product.

I love the quality of this set. Although the fruits are plastic, they are made of a high quality and heavier plastic, not the typical thin and flimsy plastic most playtime food pieces consist of. More importantly, my children have had lots of fun with these items. We purchased this set when my girls were 18 months old and they still love to play with them even though they are almost 4. They stock their "kitchen" shelves with the fruits, set up a grocery store and love to pick these items from the "shelves" and put them in their shopping cart. they routinely select these items to "feed" their dolls. The fruit was also useful as a teaching tool when we were teaching the girls the names of various fruits and teaching colors. Now, we are learning about what foods are good for our bodies and these items come in handy. Finally, the packaging is super cute and we kept the box as a good way to store the "fruit" when it is not being played with or consumed by a hungry doll.
