Well, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted. C’est la vie. Life intervenes. I haven’t lost interest in toys or in this blog. I’ve just been..well..busy. With stuff. Yeah. Onwards.

The Soft Sorting Food was given to us as a 1st birthday present for Boy 2. I will admit that I didn’t think that we’d like it all that much. My kids don’t like stuffies much at all, other than for sleeping, and this food is a lot like, well, stuffed food.

HOWEVER, the play value of this food has been astronomical. Boy 1 likes them cause you can pretend to eat them. The shopping bags are great for playing grocery store. You can sort by colour or use them for counting. I especially like that they don’t hurt when you throw them. My kids like to throw the food, and that Melissa and Doug wooden stuff really cracks one off on your head. I bruise easily.

Anyways, the boys are almost 3 and 6 and are still loving the soft food. And they’ve been well used. Highly recommend them. I’ve never found them in stores though, so if you’re wanting to get them as a present – leave some lead time for ordering online.
