fantastic toy for 1.5 year old 7 Jan. 2013
By A. Wang - Published on Amazon.com

Got this for my son because he loves to pretend cook and we didn't have any play food. I love that all of the food in this set are fruits and veggies and the perfect size for play cooking. The buckets though ended up being a huge hit with my son. He loves to stack and restack them and turn them over to use as drums. They are very sturdy and well made. The fruits and veggies are also really well made. I would say these get played with more than any other toy in his playroom. He loves to carry around the fruit and veggies and say their names and pretend eat and feed them to others. Great for learning the names of fruits and veggies. He hasn't gotten the concept of sorting them by color yet but I think it'll be fun for him when he gets there. There are 25 fruits and veggies in the set: Red - apple, grapes, raspberries (same shape as the blackberries), tomato, strawberry; Orange - pepper, apricot (same shape as the plum), carrot, pumpkin, orange; Yellow - pepper, apple, lemon (same shape as the lime), corn, banana; Green - pepper, apple, lime (same shape as the lemon), broccoli, cucumber; Purple - grapes, blackberries (same shape as the raspberries), plum (same shape as the apricot), onion, eggplant.

Fun and lots of uses! 18 Jan. 2012
By A Mom's Take - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
We have really enjoyed the Farmer's Market Color Sorting Set! The pieces included are really nice quality and a great size for little hands. All 3 of my little boys ages 1-5 had fun playing the sorting games and there was enough pieces to go around for them to share. I had my older two boys racing to find all the fruits and veggies of a certain color. After that, we set up 5 different items in a line and then I removed one and had them try to guess which item was missing. They also took turns "hiding" one of the items from the line and loved hiding it in one of the baskets out of sight. I also had my 5 year old sorting by fruits vs. veggies and was surprised by how many he got right! I think there are a lot of different activities you can use this set for, and when you're done with the sorting games, they make the perfect addition to your play kitchen or market!

Holy awesomeness! 21 Nov. 2012

Being more of a carbohydrates/fats girl myself, I have never been particularly enthusiastic about fruits and vegetables...until my Farmer's Market Color Sorting Set arrived (within two days of ordering, thank you Amazon!!). This toy really blows me away. I am not one of the lucky moms who received the item free from Learning Resources...I paid for this after reading the reviews (skeptically, as everyone else seemed to get theirs for free) - but what these freebie moms say is true!! This set is awesome. The colors are so vibrant - and I like how there is so much attention to detail (for example, the purple fruits/veggies have different shades of purples, as do the reds, etc.). I also like that there are at least two items which are the same but in different colors (yellow pepper, green pepper - red apple, green apple). Whoever wrote that these are sized to scale is wrong though (unless the broccoli is intended to be a giant tree - as it dwarves the cucumber and is almost the size of the pumpkin), but this doesn't detract from the fun at all. I like the slightly squishy feel of the plastic - and it seems to be much higher quality than the usual plastic food toys we have (particularly the pumpkin, which is a masterpiece onto itself). The containers are also extremely sturdy....and if we bring the toys into the tub (as all our toys inevitable end up for some reason), we could use the containers as a sneak attack to get the soap out of my 2 year old's hair. This is definitely one of Learning Resource's great products (and we also love the sorting texture toy which is a dog house with dog bones - Ruff's Playhouse or something like that).

Definitely love it 28 Jun. 2013
By S. Ulmet - Published on Amazon.com

First, let me say that I've always hated the fake plastic food that one usually sees that's meant for playtime. Even as a little kid (like 5), I was always disappointed in the fake food and would sneak real food into my playtime. My little girl is not as picky as I was (so far), but, hey, I've gotta live with the toys, too, and my impulse with normal fake play food is to toss it in the trash, especially if it's been squashed by someone's foot.

This is a whole other class of fake food and it seems nearly indestructible compared to other fake foods (aside from the solid wood ones which are just painful to step on/kick). Yes, some of it is undersized so that it will fit in the buckets (like the pumpkin and banana are small even for real miniature ones) and some of it is not particularly realistic (asparagus and carrots only kinda look like that), but it's FAR more realistic and detailed than most. The weight is significant, but still easy lifting for kids. The slight flexibility and feel of the plastic adds a lot to the realism as well. I had my doubts as to ordering so many pieces since it looks like they barely fit in the buckets, but they easily fit in the buckets (the pic has filler, I'm sure) and the variety means a lot of flexibility in playing games with the pieces. Also, this comes with two sets of stickers: one with the color and the color's name (i.e. "Yellow" on a yellow background) and one that is just the color. So, you can start with just the color and put the word/color one over it once they've mastered that color (and ready to recognize words as meaningful).

Grow with the kids 15 July 2013
By MJ Bell - Published on Amazon.com

I got this set for my grandkids to play with at my house. My two and a half year old grandson loves to run up to us with one of the fruits or vegetables and ask if we want to eat it. He likes to dump them on the floor and put them in the baskets. He enjoys turning the baskets upside down and having his little men or dinosaurs jump from one basket to another. The baskets are sturdy and kids can find many ways to use them with other toys. My three year old granddaughter immediately noticed the colored labels. She dumped the play food out and then sorted them into color groups as she put them back into the baskets. Since there are some less familiar foods, she has expanded her knowledge by learning to name them. She also enjoys putting them on her play dishes so we can eat them. This toy is very well made and allows for many opportunities for pretend play, counting, and sorting. Both my two and a half year old and three year old grandchildren continue to choose this toy to play with. I am very pleased with this purchase.
