ELC Wooden Sandwich Set
Advantages: Well made, authentic looking, fun
*** Please note that I still own this wooden sandwich set as of November 2012 and have a photograph of it in my house should anyone want to see it ***
I don't know what it is about it but I love wooden play food, I think its so fun that it looks like the actual food and is really cute and so as a result my daughter has a lot of wooden play food. One of the fun sets she got about a year and a half ago was this wooden sandwich set from the Early Learning Centre. We still play with it now so I think this goes to show just what a long lasting toy it is and that it will keep the imagination for a long while and also will last that long as well in terms of wear and tear. We have a lot of different food sets, fruits and vegetables and shopping trolleys, shoppings bags etc so you can also use this set in conjunction with a lot of other toys which I like. My little girls room often looks like the inside of Tesco's we have so much play food but this is a set she really enjoys.
The set is wooden obviously, and in my opinion is very well made. The food and accessories all look quite authentic and real and I think this adds to the playability of the toy. The wood is thick and well made, sturdy and so far we have no real wear and tear on the toys apart from on the velcro which holds the sections together gathering a bit of dust and dirt but once its stuck together you can't really tell anyway.
The set comes with a nice wooden chopping board which wouldn't look out of place in a proper kitchen in my opinion, its that well made and good looking although small child sized so no good for your loaf of bread. The board has a little slit in it at the top so you can carry it like a proper board. Its on this that my little girl and I like to chop up our sandiwch ingredients or butter our bread on as this we we don't make a mess, (her words, not mine!)
There is a baguette which comes in two halves with little grooves in the top to make it look authentic. It sticks together with a Velcro disc in the middle and it looks really quite yummy and good enough to eat in my opinion. There are also four slices of toast/bread which all stick together again with velcro discs although you can have them separately if you like. This is good for us as we also have an Early Learning Centre toaster which this bread fits in as well so we can toast it too. What I like about the bread/toast slices is that they are a bit darker on the top so it looks like the toast has a bit of a crust to it and again looks good enough to eat.
In order to make your sandwich nice and exciting there is a slice of tomato, a slice of cheese, a purple onion slice, a lettuce slice and what I think is meant to look like an egg slice although this is the only item I am not sure about and the only one that doesn't look great in my opinion but the rest are wonderful. All these items have velcro on too so you can stick them all together in your bread or baguette sandwich and they will stay there while you try to eat it. There is also a mustard pot but I can't for the life of me find it at the moment so if you wish to see a photo you will not see the pot of mustard and you will also see slices knobs of butter that are in the photo as well which belong to another set.
This is a really fun sandwich making set and one I recommend for your budding chefs!
