Wooden Toy Vegetable Basket is a collection of 10 wooden and felt vegetables all contained in a cane basket with handle. This play food set contains all the vegetables that you would see at the grocery store or farmers market and the cane basket is a great storage solution and shopping role-play toy.
Children love to play shops and this vegetable basket gives them the opportunity to be the owner of a grocery store or a customer. Or maybe they are the farmer who grew all the vegetables and they are delivering them to market.
The pieces included in this set are a spring onion or scallion with very realistic string roots and felt leafs, a purple onion, spotty brown potato, plump red tomato with felt leafs, 2 brown mushrooms with natural wood stalks, a carrot with felt leafs, a cob of corn with felt sheaf and capsicum and purple egg-plant both with detailed felt leafs.
The wooden vegetables in this set are very realistic looking. The string roots on the spring onion really look like the real thing and will be sure to trick teddy and dolly.
This set provides many educational and creative play opportunities, naming all the vegetables is fun and finding the same ones at the shop a great challenge. Who knows maybe, just maybe it will lead to your children loving and eating more vegetables.... Probably not, but we can hope.
