Rated 5 out of 5 by Education oriented, working parent Great Cookie Set
(Overview) My sister, who is an elementary school principal, bought the Slice and Bake cookie set for my 5 year old. This is a great toy because it has helped with counting, language development, and keeps my kid occupied in her kitchen so she can't make messes in mine. (Pros) This is a great toy for a small group of kids because it helps with cooperative play and children can assign themselves jobs. "I'm cutting!" "Well, I'm baking it!" "I'll put the frosting on!" This is a fun activity for elders as well. My daughter brought this toy with her when we visited a relative in an assisted care unit. Our relative, who has arthritis, was happy to see this was an activity she could do with the kids. The other residents joined us to 'bake' cookies. "Finally, cookies that won't make us fat!", commented one gentleman. (Con) If you have rambunctious children, the individual pieces can easily become projectiles! At least the cookies stop being hurled when the line, "If you can't behave, you can't play Bakery." is uttered.

It came quickly and it was exactly as expected. The cookie dough container is a lot sturdier than it used to be, so that was a nice surprise !

Rated 5 out of 5 by MommyWinks My Daughter Loves This!
I have never seen my 2 year old play with 1 single toy for such a long period of time. I showed her how to cut the cookie dough and lay each one out on the pan, then we put them in her toy oven, let them "cook" while we ate dinner and after dinner my daughter "frosted" the cookies and we all ate "dessert." My daughter was so proud of herself. It is a great confidence boosting toy, helps with sharing (giving little brother a cookie) and I only had to show my daughter the "process" once and she was baking cookies all night!!!!!! Also, there aren't any small parts for little brother to choke on, which is nice.

This was a Christmas gift for my daughter, and she still plays with it 5 months later. She's a toddler, so I wasn't sure if she would "get" it, but she definitely does. She gets her cookies out of her play oven, exclaiming "COOKIES!" and brings them around to everyone to have. It's a perfect toy for her to exercise her imagination.

I gave these to my 3yr old little boy for Christmas this year and he has not put them down. He loves slicing the cookies off, putting them on the cookie sheet and putting them in the oven. He then puts on his oven mitt to take them out. He ices them and then serves them with the spatula on to paper plates (not included)for our guest. He also loves the puzzles they have and I will be buying more food sets for his restaurant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MomOfBusyBoys This product is great for imagination building and hand-eye coordination development.
I ordered 4 of the Melissa & Doug Slice and Bake Cookie Sets for my children and to give as gifts to my nieces and nephews (ages 4-1 years). Every child LOVES them. I love them because they are so durable. I like that the velcro is strong and I don't have to worry about misplaced cookies. Imaginations are growing as we have cookies with each play meal. My youngest is a rough and tough little boy and this toy has stood up to his standards.

My daughter was given this as a Christmas gift because she already had a play kithen that she loves. She has been playing with it since. She's always wanting to help make things and this toy is perfect for her. She loves cutting the cookies apart and placing them on the baking tray just like I do with real ones. She's always making us cookies and bringing them to us to "eat". I can't say enough good things about this product it's great and perfect for any child.

I bought this for my 2 year old even though it says 3 and up. She loves it. It entertains her for at least an hour and that says a lot for a 2 year old, especially when her 8 year old sister or 10 year old brother get involved with her. She detaches and reattaches the icing and the cookies from the tray, she slices them, she does it all. The loves this the most out of this and the cake set I bought her. This appears to be made very well too, no warping, no paint chipping, very nice. I'm very pleased with this one.
