Feed the Imagination
Feed the imagination with this beautifully crafted wooden play food set! It includes 21 hand-painted solid wood pieces that can be mixed and matched to create a balanced 'meal'. The wide variety of items includes cheese, milk, watermelon, tomato, bread, fish, egg, steak, and much more! Four wooden crates (6.25 inches x 4.25 feet x 2.5 inches each) are included to sort the food into groups - dairy, produce (for fruits and vegetables), grains, and meat and fish. Kids can also sort by color or use the crates to combine foods to serve up pretend-play meals. This sturdy and colorful realistic wooden food set will satisfy kids’ hunger for hands-on play and can nourish cognitive development, too! It helps introduce the basics of nutrition, and can be used to teach early number skills, color recognition, sorting, and grouping. The smooth, solid wood pieces are perfectly sized for small hands to help promote fine motor skills and dexterity. The collection will spur creative play and encourage budding young chefs to explore healthy food for years to come.

The Melissa and Doug set immediately started chipping- the "hamburger" came with bubbled up paint. Within a couple of minutes of being played with for the first time, the paint peeled off, revealing a thick, white, powdery substance underneath, that came off on the child's hands. What is the powder? I don't know because when I emailed M&D a couple weeks ago to ask, no one ever responded!
Only the hamburger is totally destroyed, but I think it is safe to assume that if one toy comes apart within minutes of use, the rest of the set won't last long. I have had no problems thus far with the food from Hape or Plan Toys. We have other toys from M&D- puzzles and such that are ok. However this toy was so low quality I am hesitant to try another of their products. We asked for an exchange- we will see if this was a fluke or not. I see that many other reviewers have had paint issues as well, though.
We have and this set now for years, along with numbers other food and kitchen sets. They are the last ones standing. Paint is in near perfect condition…where there aren't teeth marks. And, really, what else could go wrong with blocks of wood made to look like food!
Skip the plastic and paper sets, and do yourself a favor and order this set and the Melissa and Doug Fridge Food set. You will have more than enough food for the kids to cook with and they will last literally until you give them away.
**Yes I posted this exact same review on the other set, they are that good. In fact, even the little basket that come with this set survived years of abuse!**
If you're looking for a good-quality wood toy, go with Hape. Their pieces are made with much more attention to detail, and are much higher quality.
