Melissa & Doug - Fridge Food Wooden Play Food Set (9 pieces)
Fridge Full of Fun
Play food has never been cooler! This collection of wooden 'refrigerated' and 'frozen' food packages is perfect for stocking play fridges and freezers. The nine hand-painted pieces include a stick of butter, a carton of low fat milk, a bottle of orange juice, a package of bologna, a wedge of Swiss cheese, and a container of yogurt for the refrigerator; and, frozen vegetables, waffles, and a tub of ice cream for the freezer. All have realistic hand-painted labels to help with letter and word recognition, as well as food identification. Quality solid wood construction means this is some fridge food that has no expiration date.
