Who Would Buy The Melissa and Doug’s Roll, Wrap and Slice Sushi Counter?
This toy sushi set is recommended for 3+ by the manufacturers, we think children of six would probably be about the oldest that would get educational or play benefit from this set.
Boys or girls would equally like this set.
Even if the child hasn’t had much contact with Sushi they will still learn and have fun playing with this set.
If your children have other Melissa and Doug food toys then this would be a good play set to complement previous sets that they own with one that is a bit exotic.
