2.0 out of 5 stars Not made to last - peeling paint and unsafe for kids
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 8 August 2018
I really wanted to avoid buying plastic toys but the paint on these is not made to last. All of them started to peel after only a few months and are super unsafe for my toddlers to play with. Really disappointing.
What type of paint is it? Is it toxic? Are these toys actually meeting safety standards for use with children?

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 15 April 2018
Recently bought my daughter a kitchen but with a lack of ‘food’ to cook we felt that it needed something a little extra to complete the toy. We saw these and thought we would give them a go as the little empty cardboard boxes wouldn’t last minutes with my 2 year old mini Godzilla.

These arrived and at first we were expecting the package to be a little bigger then what we had been given. So at first we were quite dissapointed and bracing ourselves for more dissapointment as we opened the box.

The toys are exactly what we wanted, they’re good quality wooden ‘food’ items with little wooden crates. I would recommend these toys to anyone that’s looking for make believe food for their little ones to enjoy. Happy parents and a very happy 2 year old that’s enjoyed them straight out of the box.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 10 February 2019
We've bought Melissa & Doug wooden food before and really loved it, so we bought some more. We weren't disappointed. All the items are solid and feel good to hold, are well painted, and are so much nicer to play with than plastic food. It's made it much easier to talk to our daughter about food groups as well because these are tangiable items. The small wooden crates are nice too. The set was smaller than I was expecting when it arrived, but is actually the right size for the toy plates and kitchen that we have, and the size of children's hands!
