Veggie Cutting Set

You may not be able to get your child to eat his veggies, but with this set, he'll sure enjoy cutting them up! Packed in a wood crate, with a small cutting board and smooth-edged wood knife, this toy makes playing with food fun. The carrot, tomato, mushroom, pepper, and zucchini are segmented, with each piece secured by Velcro. Kids "cut" by slicing through the Velcro and voila! The veggies are chopped. Crafted from renewable rubber wood and coated with lead-free paint, the set helps kids develop eye-hand coordination and fine motor skills. A great basic for role playing kitchen or restaurant, too!
