Chad Valley 104 Piece Play Food Set
Advantages: Good quality
After buying my son the play trolley and receiving lots of cardboard in it I decided I would buy him a plastic set of food to play with his shop. You receive 104 food pieces a few are cardboard but only about 10 so to be honest these went in to the recycling bin as previous experience with these proved they were not of great quality.The rest of the set was made of plastic and just what I was looking for something that would last with a two year old child.
The set includes a wide range of food including chips, milk bottles, chicken fruit and vegetables. The remaining foods are molded of plastic making them very durable to younger children's quite rough play at times. We have had our for around a year now and they are still of good quality and well played with. They love to sit with me and separate the foods into there different food groups so are also a good aid for teaching what are vegetables fruit meat etc.This toy is perfect for encouraging role play and as it can be used as a shop scene it also helps with number and teaching children basic concepts of money.My son and daughter like to play with this set and when my niece and nephew come round they also find it fun to play and they are a little older and 6 and 7.
The only problem I have with this toy is there is nothing to store them in but I have managed to buy a reusable bag to store them in but for £9.99 they represent brilliant value so this is not too off putting.Age recommendation is 3 + but my son had it since he was 2 and as there are no small parts I did not see any problem with this. I purchased it in the 2 for £15 offer at Argos and it is available for £9.99 on its own.
Summary: A great toy for role play
