We were very pleased with our purchase after lots of time spent looking. It was hard to tell from the photo, what size the vegetables would be, although we thought they would be bigger than they are. The carrots and courgettes measure between 2 1/2 inches and 3 inches long - just big enough to fit in a toddlers clenched fist! So it may not be suitable for children younger than 2 - especially with the round vegetables, which could provide a choking hazard. The finish is great, bright colours and durable finish. Our toddlers really enjoy playing with them.
