The Kidoozie Fruits and Veggies made by Really Great toys is another inexpensive, educational toy for kids from 2 to about 10. They are lifelike plastic fruits and vegetables that you can peel and cut, then Velcro back together afterwards. It comes with a safe to use plastic knife and even a handy storage bag that can double as a shopping bag. Kids will be able to use their imagination to play for hours making sandwiches and other lunches for their friends.
All The Popular Veggies You’ll Recognize
The vegetables included are durable and large, about 4 inches each, and include corn, onion, cabbage, orange, banana and cauliflower, usually about 8 altogether plus the plastic knife. The fruits are fairly hard plastic, not the normal super soft plastic fruits that wear out easily, and these will last longer even when chewed. You can peel and cut many of the fruits, then connect them back together. The tote bag is well made from canvas and has a screen mesh bottom that keeps dirt from accumulating. These fruits are tough, and can take quite a beating without breaking or splitting.
The Whole Set Exceeds ASTM F963 Requirements Set By The Government
Set by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) this toy exceeds the specs for a child’s toy. Which means that for toy safety, including choking hazard, edges that are too sharp, toxins in the material and coatings, pinching hazards, and other requirements, this toy has passed and exceeded them all. This is good news if you plan on giving this to a smaller or younger child.
Some Of The Details Of The Fruits Are Amazing
The banana can be peeled with three peels, the peach actually cuts in half and has a visible pit, or seed inside. With the cauliflower you can peel off the greens, and cut it half as well. The outer two leaves from the cabbage also peel off, and the ear of corn has three separate outer leaves that come off. The onion is able to be cut two times, and the bean pod will open up so you can see the individual beans inside. Plus, the orange can also be peeled with a total of four peels, and cut into four quarters. There’s lots to do for the avid vegetable aficionado, taking it all apart and putting it all back together again.
This Great Toy Teaches Peeling, Cutting, Seeds, Skins, Other Botanical Facts
Not only can your child use their imagination like they’re buying veggies at the store, then cutting them to make meals, but they’ll also learn about seeds, peeling skins, holding a (safe) knife, and plenty of other plant fun facts.
Add This Together With A Small Kitchen Toy And You’ve Got A Winner
This is a great add-on toy to several others you can also buy. It goes well with plates and silverware, small tables and chairs, small plastic cooking sets, and also bread and lettuce sets as well.
Giving your kids Kidoozie Fruits and Veggies sets that they can use their imagination on while leaning small details of fruits and veggies is an excellent teaching method. By asking them questions as they work along, peeling and cutting you can help them understand all the finer details that they may be missing.
