- Encourages role play; children develop social skills by imitating grown-ups and inventing their own roles.
Better for older toddlers — too small for 1 year old.
I got very excited about this set when I saw it online because we want our daughter to learn about healthy eating habits, and thought this would be a fun companion to her shopping cart. When the items arrived, I discovered that the pieces are much smaller than I expected, and that the age rating for the product is 3+ years. I ended up putting about half of the pieces away as possible choking hazards for our one year old. The vegetables are super cute, as well as the little basket, and I hope she will grow into them when she is a little older and ready to engage in creative/kitchen play. I don’t recommend this for under 2 years old, though…
Perfect for imaginary play.
I LOVE this set. Especially the salad leaves that have velcro on them! It is a great set for playing and showing your tot or baby names of healthy and tasty vegs.
Got this set of veggies because it was a better deal for the price. Item shipped and got to me way before the other items I purchased at the same time. Son loves the leaves on the lettuce that rip off and puts the basket on his head as a hat. Looking forward to years of fun with this set.
great addition to a kid’s kitchen
Got these for my niece for Christmas. She was almost 2 and a very picky eater. Her parents got her a little kitchen. Shortly after she was doing much better with trying fruits and veggies. (I got the fruit basket too). She still plays with them and her mom just puts them in the washer. Over a year and they look new. Although the leek is a little wierd.
Darling Duktig Vegetable Basket!!!
Darling and very well made little basket of felt vegetables. I bought it as a gift but am waiting another year to give it. She will be older and will enjoy it more when she turns two. Extremely well made and in an adorable little felt basket. This is very small but perfect for little hands. I love it! I highly recommend this! Side note: You can purchase this, the fruit basket and other things from this company at Ikea for a whole lot less! Come on Amazon, you can do better than this price!!
