                Great toy for learning to use two hands together, fine motor strength, and pretend play. It only comes with one wooden knife but a plastic knife can be used if playing with a friend. Kids seem to really like this toy, it is popular when friends visit.

                    Some friends gave this set our little girl for her 2nd birthday and she loves it. When you "slice" through the two halves of the apple, the velcro discs holding them together separate with a satisfying sound. It sounds and feels like you're really cutting through an apple! Of course, she just loves playing with pretend food of any kind, and whether she's slicing them apart or pulling them apart, she has lots of fun. This is a simple but well-made and beautiful toy set.
