Identified Special Needs Challenges:
Cerebral Palsy, Developmental Delay, Learning Disabilities, Speech & Language Delay
"Our two daughters have different needs. The oldest has CMV and Cerebral Palsy. She likes to stick the sides together and pull them apart. She is very oral in her discovery so she puts this in her mouth all the time, and has done so safely. Our youngest daughter has speech and language delays, so her saying -cut cut cut- was a big thrill for us as parents. We have been very happy with this toy for both our girls."

High quality toy! Grand daughter loves to cut the fruit just like mom! Something that will be used for years, and handed down to the next generation.

Two year olds love it!
Posted 1/12/2014 by cindy m

I am a teacher in a twos and threes class. My kids love this toy! I actively teach with it in two ways- matching halves to develop math skills, and cutting the fruit for some practical life skills and development of hand-eye coordination. Sometimes the kids form their own pretend play and go grocery shopping by putting the fruit into their shopping bags. The fruit is well made in wood and chunky- perfect size for little hands. The knife is thick and also made of wood but my kids like this activity so much that we have supplemented with a few more plastic knives so that more than one could work cutting at a time. This is just a fantastic item.

Review for Cutting Fruit Crate
Posted 10/10/2013 by lindsey soroka

my daughter like to help mommy "cook" in the kitchen and this product is perfect to set up on the counter and share that time with her. She really likes being independent and able to cut the fruit all by her self. we bought this for her 2nd birthday.
