This is a really enjoyable well-made toy in the Velcro-together cutting food style. The great quality, well-finished wooden pieces are brightly painted (over time, the paint job can get a bit chipped if the pieces are not carefully looked after), and in gentle hands can last really well. The pieces are ideal for home or childcare/early years education use (the latter in support of Early Years Foundation Stage goals regarding making healthy choices) and are a lot of fun.
The sturdily made presentation/storage box is also wooden and has glued on paper labels printed in a red and white tablecloth effect. It's just a shame, as with many other Melissa and Doug toys, that a lid isn't included to keep the pieces safely inside the box once the initial shrink-wrap has been removed.
