Rated 5 out of 5Â by snapdragonite Cute toy and great for many ages!
We bought this for our 5-month-old for Christmas. Right now, he likes to shake the rattles and chew on things, which is what I expected. I was surprised when my 4-year-old exclaimed upon seeing it, "I would love to have that for Christmas!" and now he enjoys playing with it too (he particularly loves making the sandwich and pretending to be on a picnic). Overall, this is a great toy because it can appeal to many ages and won't be grown out of as quickly as other baby toys. I prefer this spill and fill basket over other spill and fill toys because it seems better suited for long-lasting creative play.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Heather the Home Economist Great soft food toy
We got this a couple months ago. When we bought it my then 6 month old son didn't want to give it up long enough for the cashier to ring it up. Since then it is his favorite toy to play with while Mommy cooks or if he finishes his meal before the rest of the family. If this is any indication we can't wait until he is big enough for the wooden food play sets and kitchen. My only complaint is that I wish it had a milk instead of a fruit drink and something healthier than ice cream. Although it's play we still want our son to learn that HEALTHY food is fun.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by IndyMama Wonderful Toy
Our one-year old was beginning to tire of his basket of familiar toys. This was one of the new items we purchased for him and it is his favorite! He loves pulling everything out, "tasting" all of the different textures and pulling apart the sandwich. Our friend's children also love to play with this toy (ages 2 and 6). This will be used for many many years and because of the good quality I have no doubt it will hold up well.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Rachael Lovely toy for my nine-month-old
I bought this toy for my daughter, who has just turned nine months old and I'm very pleased with it. The toy is of excellent quality, having been thoughtfully designed and very nicely made. All the components are very appealing to an infant, being brightly coloured, tactile and exciting to shake and squeeze. Lifting the basket and shaking the pieces (and crawling across the floor to reach the toy!) develop gross motor skills; exploring the textures with fingertips, opening the lid and grasping the pieces to move them in and out of the basket use the fine motor skills. I love that the sandwich comes apart, a feature that will further develop thinking and fine motor skills and add to the imaginitive play possibilities for a toddler. The toy offers so many starting points for talk - with younger infants about colour, shape and basic actions, and with young children more complex imaginitive narratives. Love it!
