Young pizza chefs will shout “Mamma mia!” when they see the 54 toppings that come with this wooden pizza set! Then they’ll get busy topping, cutting, and serving up six custom slices for their happy customers. The set comes with a brightly colored tray, pizza cutter, spatula, and wooden box for storage, and the pizza makes “slicing” noises when cut! The Melissa & Doug Pizza set provides children ages 3 to 5 with all kinds of opportunities for learning and play. For example, count out the slices with kids and have them repeat until they can count them on their own. Have the kids sort the toppings into groups by name or identify each type of food and count how many there are in each group. You can also enhance the pretend play experience by ordering a pizza and having them make one just for you. This Melissa & Doug Pizza Set is an exceptional gift for kids ages 3 to 5. Add the Melissa & Doug Slice and Bake Cookie Set to round out the pretend play experience and give kids an engaging option for screen-free fun. For more than 30 years, Melissa & Doug has created beautifully designed imagination- and creativity-sparking products that NBC News called “the gold standard in early childhood play.” Today, Melissa & Doug is proudly partnering with the American Academy of Pediatrics to foster early brain development and help children build important life skills through play.
