    Comments about Melissa & Doug Food Groups - Wooden Play Food:

    I bought my son a play kitchen last Xmas and I didn't want to get him a bunch of cheaply made plastic/cardboard food so my mother bought this for him and he just loves it! All of the food is so cute and durable but it's also healthy food instead of junk and fast food. The only thing is it looks like there are two egg halves but his set only came with one. I would recommend spending a little more to get this great food set than to buy the cheap plastic food and have to keep replacing it after it gets smashed.

      My kids LOVE this! We homeschool our six year old twins and they love playing house with their little brother. We have bought other kitchen/food play items before but they didn't last even a day. These have lasted for a while now and that is saying something when it comes to my kids. They are learning about trading goods and these things are built to last. Could not be happier.

        Very Fun Way to Teach and Reinforce

        from Bellevue, NE

        About Me Grandparent, Stay At Home Parent

        Verified Reviewer

        Comments about Melissa & Doug Food Groups - Wooden Play Food:

        Pretend play is especially difficult for our eight-year-old autistic daughter; this wonderful "toy" has been an exception! This set, which we bought her for Christmas, is fantastic. The pieces look relatively realistic. Though her speech is limited, she was able to name all of the components. With practice, she has learned to build sandwiches and such - including pretending to slice the tomatoe and onion. She puts the steak on a sandwich, too and asks for condiments! An added bonus was that her classroom began a new chapter in health, Healthy Foods, right after Christmas break. This was a very physical reinforcer for her. She and I have already spent hours "playing" with the set. We have also combined pieces (sliced cheese, mushrooms, etc) from other Melissa and Doug food play groups to expand our fun.

            Another amazing product from Melissa and Doug! I didn't want to get the cheap plastic food and have it all over my house, not only that but it's so unrealistic looking. This is a great well made product, comes in little wooden crates to keep everything organized, and a fun way to introduce healthy eating to your little one :) love it

              My only suggestion to Melissa and doug items need a storage container with a lid to keep the items better organized. Love Melissa and Doug products. I have bought many items for my grandkids and this is my only complaint.

                This is great! No parts to break off, no hollow plastic to collapse! My son and niece will have great times together playing with this and the pizza/birthday party sets I purchased.

                They only flaws I can find are: The hamburger is green (ick! Who would eat green meat?) and the four food groups died out in 1992 when the food pyramid was introduced.

                Other than that, I love this product!!!

                  I LOVE this food set. All the other food sets I looked at were full of unhealthy foods and I wanted my kids to have fun, but also learn about healthy choices. We bought this two years ago to go with a shopping cart for our daughter. All three of my kids play with these and they are great quality.

                      So much fun! My almost 3 year old loves to bring us each food (one at a time) for us to pretend to eat it. She knows each of these foods now. So much better than fake junk food. The wood is nice, but is a bit of safety hazard when she starts throwing toys. Ouch.

                      • FOOD FACTS Have kids identify each food item (other than condiments) and sort it by basic food group: meat, dairy, grain, or fruits and vegetables. Ask them to place each food group in a different crate.

                      • RAINBOW REVIEW Have kids identify the colors of each food item, and sort the items by color among the four crates.

                      • BALANCING ACT Talk to kids about how a balanced meal should include one item from each food group. Ask them to assemble a balanced meal in each basket, then ask them to decide which would be their favorite meal to eat.

                      • MEMORY GAME Line up 3-4 ingredients. Let kids study them before asking them to close their eyes while you remove one piece. Ask them which piece was removed. Gradually increase the number of ingredients.
