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.
-Healthy food groups: I gravitated toward this set because many others have things like French fries, pizza and deserts. I prefer my son play with healthy foods because I think it helps him get excited about eating them. It's hard to play with an ice cream cone and then have your mom serve you up broccoli.
-Boxes: I like that the food comes in the cute little crates. We talk about the various food groups as we separate it. It also helps him clean up and organize.
-Wood: I tend to buy wood toys over plastic because of the health risks of plastic (although I'm not sure about the paint on these). They also just look better and last longer.
-Chipping: I have had a couple items chip. The hamburger bun arrived with a little paint missing, not enough to make me send it back, but it was definitely there. The paint does chip off if things are banged together or dropped.
-Heavy: These are obviously heavier than plastic. If they are thrown it can hurt or damage floors/walls/furniture.
Overall, I would buy these again. My son plays with them in his little kitchen daily along with the M & D sandwich making set.
