My daughter loves the Melissa and Doug Cutting Food Play Set, and I think this set makes a perfect gift. I have always loved Melissa & Doug products, especially the play food because they last forever! My mom bought a Melissa & Doug puzzle about four years ago, and it still looks brand new!
The problem with most play food is that it is made of plastic and cardboard that gets scratched, ripped, and breaks quickly. With Melissa and Doug play food you are purchasing high-quality wooden food that will last for years. We have passed down these play sets from generation to generation, and you can do the same. Just make sure to keep these toys away from your dogs!
Melissa and Doug play sets promote imaginative play instead of discouraging it as many electronic toys can do. That’s what I love about this brand! Play food can bring about so many different styles of play. You can play the role of a chef, waitress, business owner, farmer, food fight starter (can be slightly painful with heavy food!), hungry kid if you think if you can pretend it!
My boys like to turn the food cutting box into a competition to see who can cut up and put the food back together fastest! With boys, everything’s a competition!

My daughter doesn’t even know that she is developing her motor skills with Velcro!
I always enjoy watching my children test play food! She tastes these toys daily to make sure they didn’t turn into real food overnight.
