Baking cookies is something every child loves to do. Pretending to cook and bake helps prepare your child for events that happen in the kitchen. Combining all of the above, Melissa & Doug toys creates a fun and exciting playtime with the Melissa & Doug slice and bake cookie set. All of the pieces, including the roll of "refrigerated" cookie dough, is just like the real thing. Children can practice slicing skills safely with the wooden knife, which slices through the pretend cookie dough to create cookies for the included cookie sheet. When playtime is done, the velcro squares on the backs of the cookies stick the cookies back together in a roll of dough to play all over again. Ages 3+.
