I gave this to my granddaughter, who is 3 years old and usually too busy running or climbing to play with anything that requires her to sit down. She was excited when she saw the cookies and baking sheet. She immediately took the toppings on and off the cookies and served some to her father. The toppings have a little velcro circle which secures them to the cookies. The baking sheet also has velcro circles to keep the cookies from sliding around--this is a good idea. There is also a little potholder and spatula. I almost gave only four stars because it's hard to "slice" the cookies off the roll with the plastic knife--the cookies stick together firmly and there's not much space to wedge the knife in. With this one exception, it's easy for a child to handle and provides enough to do with just "baking" and decorating the cookies. Oh--the cookies are made of sturdy wood. All in all this is a very cute pretend toy. And who doesn't like to bake cookies?
I have always loved Melissa and Doug toys. They are all made in the USA. That is a major plus for me. Their toys are very well made and can go through a few kids. This little can set is perfect for my grandkids and their kitchen. Lots of pretend play.
