Rated 5 out of 5Â by Happy Grandma Great for child with autism
I got this for my grandchildren and was amazed at how much enjoyment they get from it. I've noticed my grandson, who has autism and has problems eating, has recently been showing "imagination" in his play and he seems to loves this pizza! He even took one of the pieces to bed with him and "pretended" to eat. I'll definitely be purchasing other play food items and hopefully it will help my grandson develop an interest in food. His sister loves preparing meals for all of us!

This was "handed down" to us from an older cousin, but it has been a great gift. It was & still is in perfect condition despite hours of use. Our daughter (3 1/2 yo) started pretending it was a birthday cake which prompted us to buy the 3-layer birthday cake (which she also loves). When she had lost a little interest in the pizza we watched an online video. She had renewed interest & was imitating the additional ways to play with it. I hadn't thought of it as being a puzzle & learning tool (just play food). Sure enough, she loves the sorting, counting, & creating the circle. However, she does disassemble & assemble the 3-layer cake more. I think because there is a bigger puzzle to solve. On her own she has pretended the toppings are money. She also uses them to "make salads" in a bowl. The pizza has also been "baked" in her play oven & under every piece of furniture. The storage box is nice & sturdy, but I wish it had a lid to keep in pieces & make stacking/storing easier. Simple plates to suit the chunky pizza (&cake) slices would be great (to buy separately). If we hadn't been given this, I think I would have completely overlooked all of the wooden cutting play food. Now she's getting even more for Christmas. Well worth anyone's investment to be passed down to siblings & future generations.

My grandchildren love to pretend to cook and the pizza set is one of the favorites. They love to imitate mom and dad - they talk about the pizza only have mushrooms on one side. They add other veggies to it for a change of menu. I love that they are learning about how many pieces make up a whole pizza and counting how many pieces of pepperoni go on each piece. This is going to be around a long time.
