Would you like paper or plastic? Well, how about wood?
The folks at Melissa & Doug are putting a new twist on classic, pretend play with their new Wooden Shape Sorting Grocery Cart.
Curious little “shoppers” will discover an array of fun, skill-building activities that fill the 15.5-inch shopping cart from bottom to top.
Using its natural wood as a background, designers at Melissa & Doug have decorated the cart with a colorful assortment of whimsical fruits and vegetables that kids will see as they sort their chunky, wooden food shapes by pressing them through holes in the sides of the cart.
This 16-piece set comes with 12 wooden shape-sorting pieces that double as puzzle pieces for two included puzzle boards that can be stored in the cart. It also features a rolling drum within the cart that kids can use for matching play.
And, since kids love to role play by mimicking the grownups in their lives, this toy comes with a pretend coffee cup and lid that kids can place in a convenient, cart-mounted cup holder for storage in between sips.
The Wooden Shape Sorting Grocery Cart makes a perfect gift for toddlers and preschoolers that are curious about shapes, colors, and the big world around them — including the grocery store!
