Plan Toys Wonky Fruit & Vegetables
Fight the war on food waste and encourage toddlers and children to eat their veg with this Plan Toys Wonky Fruit & Vegetables Set. This wooden play food and knife set includes five sliceable fruits including a cucumber, apple, pear, tomato and carrot but they don't look anything like what you will find in the supermarket. 10% of fruit and vegetables that are commercially grown are discarded because they don't meet the standard shape demanded by supermarkets - we think this is madness, and so do Plan Toys who designed this set of wobbly play food in wonky shapes and irregular forms. Who says apples need to be perfectly round and cucumbers totally straight when wonky versions taste just as good? If you want to see food on plates instead of landfill, you'll love this wooden play food set. Playing with this toy food set will help to challenge the way children view food and tackle the problem of food waste for future generations.
These colourful fruits and vegetables that can be sliced up into segments using a natural rubberwood knife, developing fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination as they play. Toddlers and children will love to chop them up for a teddy bear's picnic or cook up a feast with them in a play kitchen. The natural, tactile shape of each piece will appeal to children. Each fruit and vegetable is ethically made with Planwood, a new sustainable recycled material manufactured by Plan Toys, and comes in sections joined together with velcro. Team up with more wooden food and a play kitchen for budding little chefs for hours of imitative play.
