There's a nice variety of play food which includes some you don't typically see in other play food sets (eggplant, cucumber, pumpkin, 3 different colors of pepper, yellow apple, peach, plum). Like all Learning Resources play food, the quality is amazing. As an early childhood teacher and a mama, I've seen my fair share of plastic play food and I did a lot of comparison shopping before I purchased the play food for our play kitchen. Unlike others, this food is well sized, very detailed and made of soft plastic (it has a little give if you press it). Take a look at my photos and you can see some side by side comparisons of "other" play food (left) vs. the Learning Resources food (right). You'll see from the picture that the Learning Resources food is much more realistic looking. To get a sense of size, I've also included a picture of the tomato and orange pepper on our play kitchen's counter (the Ikea duktig). Another nice touch is that the sorting baskets have a color label on the outside and inside of the basket. It's a thoughtful detail and helps children who may be looking down into the basket when they're sorting.
While I'm using this in my home, given that the food is so realistic looking and durable and there are lots of learning opportunities with the set, it would make a great addition to a childcare/school setting as well.

I bought this color sorting set for my 3 year old son. He currently is enrolled in the Early Childhood Special Education program. I'm constantly looking for activities that will grab his interest as well as assist him in the various areas he struggles in. This does that.
Included in this purchase is a set of 5 plastic baskets which are labeled with a different color on each one. It also comes with 25 pieces of fruit and vegetables- a total of 5 fruits and vegetables for each color.
The baskets are a hard plastic and have withstood many a fling across the room. They have never cracked and look as new and vibrant as the day I bought them. The same can be said for the fruit. They are firm and have the feeling of a rubber and plastic combination. My son has chewed on them and tried to squish them and they're in perfect condition. They are not slippery and have a nice thickness to them (without being too big)which makes it easy to grasp. They all have a vibrant color to them and have maintained their vibrancy even after heavy usage.
These are extremely durable and are very versatile. We use this for both imaginative and structured play. They are used in our toy kitchen and on pretend shopping trips. We use them for color identification, sorting, fruit and vegetable identification and counting. My son will sit in front of the baskets and sort, and sometimes he'll stand a small distance away and toss the fruit into the baskets. We'll place the food pieces around the living room and have him run to grab them according to food name or color.
I'm very pleased with the quality of the baskets and fruit. I have no doubt that it will last for many years. As soon as my son no longer uses it, I will be donating it to our early childhood program so other kids can benefit from it.
