Melissa & Doug Wooden Play Food
Ages 3+ 2.8" x 12" x 11" (Packaged)
This set contains eight pieces of wooden food, a cutting board and a wooden knife. Cutting the food makes a satisfying "crunch"--and a playful introduction to concepts of "whole," "part," and fractions.

Suitable for ages 3 years and up.

Extension Activities (More Ways to Play and Learn):
  • Ask the child to identify each food and categorize it as a fruit, vegetable, or grain.
  • Place the food items in a row. Ask the child to count the number of food items. Repeat the activity until the child is able to count them independently.
  • Ask the child to place the apple on the cutting board and cut it apart with the wooden knife. Explain that the apple has been cut into two equally sized pieces, or halves. Ask the child to find another piece of food that could be cut in half (the pepper).
  • Ask the child to put together the sandwich-bread slices on the cutting board and to use the wooden knife to cut them into individual slices. Explain that the bread was cut into three equal slices, or thirds. (Do not use the loaf for this activity--it works best with the sandwich slices.)
  • Ask the child to place the watermelon slice on the cutting board and to cut it apart with the wooden knife. Explain that the watermelon slice has been cut into four pieces, or fourths.

I love Melissa and Doug products. I purchased this for my son as a Christmas present. Something that is tactile and not electronic. He loves playing with all the Melissa and Doug products.

Gift from Santa for my 3 year old (Santa's gifts are made from wood at my place with help from Melissa and Doug lol) Cutting food never gets old and kids of all ages enjoy playing with it!

My grandson is 2 years old and was given this a gift. He loves to help his parents chop veggies We had a FaceTime with him last night and he has figured it out and loves it. He turned the knife into a hammer funny...

My kids loved using this toy at a friends house. So I know it will be a hit upon Christmas. They love chopping them. Great toy idea especially for the little ones for hand-eye coordination

Stephanie: more than a year ago

So much fun to play with! Takes pretend food play to the next level!

Matthew: more than a year ago

Our son loves this product! He is constantly chopping things up. Our only challenge is trying to put everything back together in time for him to start again. We've had it for three weeks now and the product has held up very well to wear and tear so far.

Nicole: more than a year ago

Fantastic toy... always a hit and goes well with "play" kitchens... great to pull out at dinner time so a little one can cook alongside. Would definitely recommend!
