Top Customer Reviews
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.
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.
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.
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.
