Wooden Fruit Cutting Set is a delicious 14 piece set of assorted wooden fruits, knife and chopping board. The wooden fruit pieces are ingeniously held together by dots of Velcro so they can be separated into halves, this can provide a great introduction to the concept of fractions.
The wooden knife can be used to cut through the fruit and Velcro simulating the cutting of fruit without the danger to little fingers of a real knife. As the fruit separates the Velcro makes a very satisfying sound.
This set allows your child to role play food preparation and copy what they see in the kitchen. The different types of wooden fruit are a great way to encourage naming and identification. Once the fruit has been cut there is also the task of putting the right pieces back together again.
The wooden fruit set contains a wooden kiwi, banana, orange, strawberry, lemon and apple All the chopping, dicing and preparation can take place on the wooden chopping board using the sturdy, easy to grip wooden knife.
The strawberry and apple in this play set have felt leaves attached to their wooden stalks which is a lovely touch and helps create a realistic effect.
