From the manufacturer
Satisfying Slicing Sounds
Ideally suited for stocking a play kitchen or shopping trolley, this cutting fruit set combines hands-on fun and unique learning with creative play. The seven included fruits (pear, orange, melon, kiwi, strawberry, banana, and lemon) can be cut up into 17 hand-painted wooden pieces using the included wooden knife, and then neatly tucked away in the sturdy storage crate. Kids can’t resist the realistic “crunch” sound when the fruit is sliced.
A Delicious Way to Learn
In addition to teaching fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination, this set encourages imaginative and independent play -- and even introduces the concept of fractions. A child can use the wooden knife to cut up the fruit and count all the pieces, then you can talk together about cutting the pear, orange, strawberry, lemon, and kiwi in half; the banana in thirds; and the melon in fourths.

I gave it my daughter for Christmas and she loves it! She plays with it everyday and has very quickly improved her dexterity skills when holding the knife and the chopping action. (I’ve added a lift video of her playing with it when she first got it).
It’s great quality wood and such a good idea! I’ve already bought the pizza set for her birthday! She’ll be 2 years old, so even though the set recommends from 3yrs +, (I took a risk as she’s quite advanced for her age) and it’s really helping her develop her dexterity skills.
I would highly recommend this set and the “Melissa and Dough” series. Their products are fantastic quality, great value and my daughter loves them!
Thanks Amazon for the great deal and great product description! :)
The velcro on the inside holds the fruit together giving it a very real like sound when chopping it. Even I love these toys. A big shout out and thank you to melissa and doug.. whoever they are.
The main negative, which almost induced me to return the fruit, is the melon. This is in 4 pieces, the middle 2 of which both have velcro hooks on both sides, so cannot be joined together. This must be a production fault, as otherwise the pieces would only have velcro on one side. A bit annoying but I had these delivered to Germany and decided it wasn't worth returning them. My son loves them and has a great time cutting, mixing and playing with them.
