This was so much better than I expected!! I am surprisingly very impressed! My granddaughter LOVES to pretend to cook so I upgraded her with a nice big wooden kitchen for Christmas. She already had several “accessories” from her last kitchen but nothing even remotely as “realistic” as this set is. She plays with this set the most, by far! When I bought this I had convinced myself it would be very overpriced and overrated but I was very wrong!! The set has several round wood pieces that are made to be sausages, spinach and I think Parmesan cheese. The “sausages” are the only ones that are realistic looking and the only knee she plays with. Everything else about the set is awesome, cute, realistic and one of her favorite toys of all! Very well made and will definitely last a long time (if she doesn’t lose it) The noodles are made of felt and are very realistic looking. The “fork” to grab the noodles out has Velcro on it so the noodles can stick to it!! Soooo cute and fun...not only for my granddaughter but anyone and everyone who comes over is drawn to the set and ends up playing with it for a very long time! Not just kids!! All the adults love it too!!
