As I said before in my teaser post, I have been given the chance to review and giveaway a toy from ToysandGamesOnline, a CSN Store. There are many toys and games on this website that are great for development, learning, exploration and creativity.
CSN Stores has over 200 other stores too ranging from housewares to pet stores online. So, there probably isn't anything you won't be able to find there and if you can't find it now they are always adding stores to their website so you might just find it down the road.
I received the Cutting Food Box Play Set by Melissa & Doug for free to review from CSN Stores and since I received it around Teela's birthday party in April I decided it would be a great gift to give her then. I wanted to add on to Teela's first set of wooden food from Melissa & Doug, the Wooden Food Groups set, and have a bit more variety with the fruits and veggies. This new set also does something that the first set didn't. It lets Teela cut the wooden food into "pre-sliced" sections with a wooden knife and makes a nice "crunching" sound as she slices them because of the Velcro that are holding them together. I can teach her part, whole and fractions at a very early age and she can have fun putting the sections back together with the Velcro. She likes to put them back together in funny ways :p This Cutting Food Box Play Set is very safe and Teela can pretend to cook and cut without any owies. The set comes with 31 pieces including: smooth sanded and nicely painted play food made of solid wood and non toxic paints (sliced bread, loaf of bread, green pepper, tomato, watermelon, carrot, apple and cucumber) a cutting board, a crate to put it all into and a wooden knife to slice the play food. This set is recommended for ages 3 and up, but my 2 year old daughter, Teela, was ready for it and was having fun learning to slice the play foods.
James from the CSN Promo Team has has generously offered a Cutting Food Box Play Set by Melissa & Doug to one of my readers to win.
