From the desk of the product designer:

Behind the design

When I tried out the felt tomatoes and carrots with kids, I noticed they wanted to keep the fun going by stuffing and re-stuffing their vegetables. I decided to make a tie that would stay closed without knotting, so the kids can open up their vegetables and stuff them again and again!

    Super cute and fun project. Turns into a toy with good reuse for play when the craft is done. The 3 year old needed assistance with some parts but could do many things on their own.



    Bought for Christmas gift for my 3 yr old grandson



    We love this! I spit the set between my boys Easter baskets. The beaded projects were perfect for my 6yo, and my 2yo loved stuffing the veggies. We’ve been playing market ever since!



    I loved how you made different vegetables with the different fabric and beads. Such a fun project for littles.



    My granddaughter really enjoyed this crate! She is 4 1/2, and loved putting it together and selling her pretend vegetables :)



    Probably the best kiwi box we have purchased, and we have them all!
