Melissa & Doug Melissa & Doug Cutting Fruit Crate

About the Melissa & Doug Cutting Fruit Crate

It’s important to introduce good eating habits when kids are young, especially with regards to fruits and vegetables. Fruit is usually a pretty easy sell because it’s sweet but it’s the rare child who will choose an apple over a cookie.


The Melissa & Doug Cutting Fruit Crate can help, and may have your children begging you for a slice of kiwi or a chunk of cantaloupe – just looking at this toy food set makes us a bit hungry. The luscious-looking pieces of wooden fruit stick together with Velcro, and kids can cut them in pieces with a wooden knife, which makes a very satisfying crunching noise. If your child loves “helping” you in the kitchen but is too little to use a real knife, he’ll get a huge kick out of being able to do this himself! This Melissa & Doug pretend play set is a fabulous addition to a play kitchen, and kids will love serving up mouth-watering “fruit salads” or making their own silly combinations of kiwiapples, bananteloupes, and strawlemons.


Finally, the Cutting Fruit Crate from Melissa & Doug is excellent for teaching kids early math concepts: counting, parts of a whole, and simple fractions. All play food pieces are made of wood; seven fruits can be cut into a total of 17 pieces. Comes in a wooden storage crate; suitable for ages 3 and up.

WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
