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 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 Food Groups Wooden Play Food set makes a great gift for kids ages 3 and up. The Play-Time Produce and Vegetables Play Food set is a great accompaniment. The package for this wooden food toy set measures 2.5″ x 8.75″ x 12.5″ and weights 2.1-pounds.

Good toy… Not for 19.99 though I like them alright. My two and a half year old daughter likes them too. But I wouldn’t have paid 19.99 for them. I had them on my toy wish for a year, so when they went on sale for 9.99… I bought them. And I’m happy with the purchase. We have plastic food we bought when my daughter was younger and chewing on everything, but when she got a fancy new playhouse for Christmas from the grandparents, I thought it would be fun to have some fancy toy food to match. We also bought some Plan Toys…

The paint will chip! I’m really surprised this has such highly rated reviews. This just isn’t safe for children. I’m super disappointed in the quality and the fact that the paint chips off so easily. I actually returned two of these thinking the first time it was just defective since the paint was chipped before we even opened the packaging but unfortunately the second set had the same problem. My toddler was actually interested in the chipping paint and was trying to scratch at the missing spots and making it…

Overall really good. There are lots of healthy foods included, but there are a few chips on ours. I have had this set for over a year and we’re generally pretty happy with it. Here’s a list of what we have discovered we like and don’t like:Pros:-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…
