It’s never too early for a grazing platter, or so say the good folk at Fisher-Price. The much-loved toy company have come up with a genius play food charcuterie board.
And you won’t be unsurprised to hear that people on the internet are merrily debating whether this toy is cute or totally bougie.
Brie and salami playdate
The Snacks for Two playset comes with a cutting board that’s half marble, half timber. Also included are little (non-sharp) knives, marble-look plates, a bunch of grapes, a wheel of brie and a stick of salami.
“Little foodies will love indulging in fancy snacking fun with the Fisher-Price Snacks for Two role play set,” Fisher-Price says.
“This pretend charcuterie set is loaded with delicious hands-on play, including a soft salami kids can “slice,” pull-apart grapes (perfect for sharing!), “crackers” for stacking, stylish plates and real fabric napkins.”
Bon appétit, kiddo!
Posting images of the toy on Twitter, one naysayer was not impressed: “Feel truly insane after looking at these product photos of a children’s cheese and charcuterie board from Fisher-Price.”
“I would actively punch someone for buying that for my kids,” someone commented under the tweet.
“Fisher-Price makes a play food charcuterie board for preschoolers and I don’t want to participate in capitalism anymore,” another tweeter wrote.
“Fisher-Price promoting privilege at a young age,” another Twitter user declared.
But not everyone felt that way. So many people LOVED this toy and thought the charcuterie hate was a total beat up.
“My two year old granddaughter received this for her birthday,” one person wrote. “It’s adorable and she loves it. Insane is a little drama-queen-ish I would say.”
“People from other cultures than your own eat differently than you do,” someone else on Twitter pointed out. “Charcuterie boards are very common in Italy and it’s a very warm , friendly and down to earth culture. Not snooty.”
“I love this!! What’s wrong with meat, cheese and grapes for kids? I’d love to play with this,” another Fisher-Price fan wrote.
And honestly what IS wrong with it? It’s not like it comes with a pretend bottle of rosé, now is it?!
