I do agree with the other reviewer about the paint smell though (but it does go away). And the red paint started rubbing off on the knife almost immediately.
All in all, however, this will get played with A LOT.
But I do love this toy. My daughter received it for her 2nd birthday and still loves to play with it (she is over 3 now). One problem is that the baby loves it too (17 months) but some of the pieces (carrot) are choking hazards - hence the age warning. We moved the toy to the 3 yr old's bedroom to keep it out of reach of the baby until she is older. I did not notice a strong paint odor upon opening the toy. The toy is of quality construction - I think this toy will last forever.
I had two small complaints about this set. Firstly, the watermelon slices have very thin edges and are prone to being snapped off or "chewed" if you happen to have younger children in the house. My husband and I ended up putting the watermelon away pieces away for now. The rest of the food is durable and "chew" proof for the most part.
We, however, live in a VERY dry climate, and all of the wooden food developed large cracks and splits within 2 weeks of being in our house. To their credit, the company replaced all the defective pieces free of charge and we have been "crack free" ever since.
This is an EXCELLENT toy, and I highly recommend it.
The pieces hold together strongly enough that it does require a bit of effort on the cutting. This is a good thing- you want them to feel like they are really cutting through something. Some other products just fall apart and barely hold together.
Some of the pieces are painted and glazed. Some are bare wood, and some are a mixture of both. The cutting board and knife are both bare wood. They are smooth and so far have caused no splinters or give me any reason to think they will.
My biggest complaint is that the very first time my daughter started cutting the loaf of bread, the paint chipped. This is the only piece of food that has chipped. She has even take a piece of the pepper and bitten it with no scratches. I'm glad the rest of the pieces are holding up, but I'm frustrating that after so little use it is already showing signs of wear.
Overall this is a great pretend play toy that works for kids as young as 2.
