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.
