This set contains eight pieces of wooden food, a cutting board and a wooden knife.
The Melissa & Doug Cutting Food set provides a satisfying "crunch" as you cut each piece of food. Dexterity is also worked on to improve function of the hands and fingers for life skill development. Each piece of food can be pulled apart by hand to increase finger and hand strength.
The Melissa & Doug Cutting Food set can also be used for developing speech and language skills as well as working on social interactions with peers. Kids can ask each other what they would like to eat and take turns with the knife.
The Melissa & Doug Cutting Food set is great for cognitive skill development as well. This set is a fun and playful way to introduce concepts of "whole," "part," and fractions.
Each piece of food separates into 2, 3, 4 or 5 parts.
