Play Food Product Review

My princess is a girl through and through, and one of her favorite things to do is cook for her dolls. We have bought all kinds of play food. In fact, sometimes there is more “food” in her playroom than there is in the kitchen. Some of the play food did not hold up well. Although I love having natural options, felted food pilled and got dirty fast. Soon it looked, well, unappetizing!

We have found that the knitted or crocheted play food holds up the best under heavy play cooking. Our very favorite kind is from Fair Trade Family. We bought this set in November of 2010 and as you can see in the photo they have held up well to serious play time. Fair Trade Family food selection is wonderful and plentiful. Her prices as fair and they certainly last and will become an heirloom toy to cherish.

  1. Looks like a lot of fun! 🙂

  2. My little girl would love these! Do you think that they hold up so much better because they are cotton, not wool, or just because they are crochet/knit?

  3. Crochet bacon is fabulous! Really inspiring to find this site and these beautiful plastic-free games and toys.

  4. Help build your child’s imagination and creativity by making faux food from felt that can be enjoyed over and over again.
