Rated 5 out of 5Â by Rocket City mom Love it!
We bought this along with the Deluxe Kitchen play center for our 2 year old daughter for Christmas 2009. She absolutely loves it. She cuts the fruit apart and bring mommy and daddy a slice. We play in her kitchen with her for hours. The fruit has helped her with colors and names of the fruits. Her hand eye coordination while cutting has improved! I love how she informs me that its "Her knife" and will not hurt her, however at the table she demands we get the butter knifes away because they are not her knife and can hurt her. She puts together that they are the same, but slightly different. It has been awonderful learning toy!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by GranolaMom Paint chipped and didn't hold up :o(
I love this. So my rating is not exactly accurate. My 2 year old loves this very much!! I bought this for my boys just two weeks ago at a local consignment shop that exclusively carries new Melissa and Doug products retail, (they are not used or second hand) To my dismay by the second day the paint was already chipping away and they looked banged up. Today, two weeks later, the fruit pieces look as if I've had them for 10 years. Bad quality, I'm hoping this was just a mistake in the painting and to either get a replacement or refund.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by lhager08 Worst Melissa and Doug purchase to date
I've purchased many Melissa and Doug toys for my daughter, including other cutting foods. This was was so poorly made--holes where velcro are glued on are drilled too deep, excess glue used which prevent pieces from sticking together, many paint chips in the edging, etc. I exchanged the first one, and the second one still had many flaws. I'm SO disappointed in the product.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by KohlsKim24 Quality sucks but it's such a nice concept toy
My toddler loves playing with the fruit slices. However, I hate that the quality is lacking. I've seen so many reviews about the paint coming off and the velcro not really sticking, but I went and bought it anyway because my toddler loves watching the fruit slicing on YouTube Kids.
Well, the other reviewers were right, but I already knew that and still bought them.
