So I bought some learning resources toys since I have read that toys that foster make believe and play help with language. The reviews on learning resources are really good based on the quality and I was willing to spend a little more for a good toy.
I bought these:
My son loves them and will say he wants to cut the food.
The market set comes with 32 total pieces and its realistic. It includes a bushel basket, shopping basket, apple, pear, lemon, strawberry, grapes, asparagus, corn, carrot, cucumber, broccoli, juice box, orange, potato, yogurt, 2 slices of bread, cinnamon roll, 3 pretzels, 2 slices of cheese, salami, cookie, 2 lettuce leaves, tomato slice, ice cream sandwich, steak, and hot dog.
The 24-piece set includes four each: plates, bowls, cups, knives, forks, and spoons. I have only the 1 set shown since I put the other 3 sets away. My son does not need all 4 sets available to him.
If your looking for a good quality realistic toy that will promote make believe play I would look into these.
