I bought this cookie set for my daughters, aged 2 and 4 for Xmas, they absolutely love it! They love to cut the cookie dough, placing it on the baking tray, bake in the oven and serve up with the toppings which we all enjoy over and over again! The tube and box is great for storing, definitely recommend!
My 2 year old girl absolutely loves this. She puts the baking tray in and out of her play oven, making sure to use the oven mitt provided because it's "hot" and then hands out the biscuits to everyone. As she grows up she will enjoy cutting the dough and decorating the biscuits. Well made, great toy.
My brother bought this for my little boys 3rd birthday. Its a great gift for this age. Its a nice little package with many elements and very easy for toddlers to use. It all attaches with velcro and is easy to put together and take apart. There are educational suggestions on the back of the box for counting, etc. He loves slicing up the dough and taking it in and out of the oven - the oven mitt is a real hit. My 6 year old has also enjoyed it they play cafes together and often make me tea and cookies. We bake alot at home but the 3 yaer old is often frustrated that he can't do the putting on the baking tray and in and out of the oven bit so this is very satisfying for him. It seems pretty durable - my boys pretty rough with toys but so far it has held up really well.
My 3 year old daughter loves this. Out of her many Christmas presents this was her absolute favourite and she has played with it nearly every day, offering everyone cookies, counting the cookies into boxes, transferring them into bags, wrapping them up as presents, checking which flavour you want. I was rather taken aback by the popularity of this present. It probably helps that she likes cooking so this is playing at something she understands well. On educational value - we keep losing the odd cookie and then she has to count them, check them against the number of spaces on the tray, and work out how many we are missing.
This toy is brilliant, My little Girl is yet to play with it but i know she'll love it on Christmas day! As well as the obvious fun of pretending to bake cookies the toy is also educational and on the back of the box you receive the set in there are numerous tasks in which you can do with your child using the cookies, mainly counting and colours but also hand/eye co-ordination by taking them away and letting your child guess which has dissapeared!! An excellent and very pretty product, brilliant for role play and no doubt my little girl will be selling them in her pretend shop on christmas day!! I will definately be purchasing more from the Melissa and Doug range in the future!
More play food for my 3 year old granddaughter's kitchen. Beautifully presented and with a baking tray and oven glove. Play food teaches motor skills and social skills-- and with the oven glove, this will also highlight safety measures you need to take when cooking. Great fun and indestructible.Slice & Bake Wooden Cookie Set
I bought this for my daughter for her 2nd birthday and she has enjoyed it so much that I have just bought another for my nieces for Christmas. My little one particularly loves to slip on the oven mitt. Even just putting the cookies in the tube seems to keep her amused.
Melissa and Doug products are such good quality - we have several of their toys. I loved that it came with some ideas for educational things you can do with this as well as the pretend play aspect (eg counting the sprinkles, grouping white and brown icing and so on)
The only minor issue I have is that trying to pry the cookies off the tray with the spatula is hard for me as a grown-up, maybe there's a knack to it but I've ended up resorting to twisting and pulling them off because the velcro is too good.
This is a great little product for kids to role play with. Our little one loves tea party's so we brought this so she could pretend to bake and make the cookies for the tea party. The Velcro is tough enough not to fall off and the cookies stick to the tray and the icing tops sticks to the cookies - or as our little one does by making both cookies and flat cakes! Comes with an oven glove, spatula, cutting knife, baking tray and a biscuit / cookie box to pack them in. Very sturdy product, nice and colorful. Our baba is 2 & 1/2 and loves this product & i love it too. Pleased at how well all the items have been smoothed off, so no little splinters. Will look into buying more products from Melissa and dough as they will last!
