Healthy Gourmet Salad for Green EatersFall 2011 Toys
Oh, Julia Child, you would be proud! It's a gourmet salad for little ones.
This toy is clever and cool. The salad comes with felt lettuce pieces and vibrant wood vegetables, including onions, peppers, cucumbers and tomatoes. It also comes with bottles of vinegar and oil, as well as a peppershaker that, when you shake it, sounds like there's really pepper inside. There are even utensils for your child to toss his or her creation.
On its own, this toy might not have long-term play value. But if your child already has a play kitchen, this would definitely make a fun addition to the menu.
As one parent said, anytime you can have fun while also teaching your child about healthy eating, a checkmark goes in the plus column.
