Stop playing with your food right this minute! No wait. START playing with this colorful plastic play food set by Mattel from the 1970's, 1972 to be precise. It's for the sandbox or anywhere else that playing with your food is permitted. And if you want a reminder of how much things have changed regarding the foods we eat just check it out. Let's see...milk? Check. Carrot? Check. Celery? Check. Apple? Check. Prime rib? uhhh..sometimes? Cupcake? Not in kindergarten. Soda pop? Never! Gingerbread man? What is that? Grapes? Only organic. How hilarious is this??!! I love these kinds of toys because they remind me, truly, of how different childhood was then. Colorful. Bright and cheerful. A wonderful teaching tool for you and your child and until they learn how to read, you can just say the soda is bottled water. No...wait. Maybe not. (: Made from a durable kind of soft/hard plastic. Excellent condition. Made in the USA.

Dimensions: ranging in size from 5 1/2" - 3" tall and 2 1/2" - 3 /12" wide

All measurements are approximate.

COMBINE SHIPPING: I love to combine ship and if you are interested in multiple items, just shoot me a convo telling me which ones and I will get back to you with a combined shipping rate.

A NOTE ABOUT SHIPPING Because Etsy doesn't have a shipping calculator, I indicate the most expensive rate to ship my item within the continental US. My shipping costs reflect shipping an item from New Hampshire to California. If you are closer, your rate maybe as little as half that. I can provide you with the exact amount if you convo me. And if you live near by, I always consider pick-up as an option.

SHIPPING WITHIN CONTINENTAL US-Non-expedited shipping only
Convo me regarding non-continental US, international or expedited shipping

RETURN POLICY: I do not accept returns but I do happily answer any questions that help you purchase this product with confidence!
