Why I love ❤️ this
(1) Exciting Design: As usual, Melissa and Doug goes one step further and beyond. This is no ordinary sushi serving and dining toy. We can wrap it, roll it, slice it, and serve the sushi in style! I am really impressed with the menu and educative instructions teaching us how to get the steps done in a true sushi chef way using traditional rolling mat. The felt material makes interesting nori or seaweed pieces, and the self stick tab holds the ingredients of the maki and nigiri together beautifully.
(2) Quality Materials: I also love the high quality wooden materials, chopsticks that easily stick to the nori wrap, the realistic looking wooden serving tray, sturdy counter, and a slicing board with knife. I love how thoughtful and clever everything is.
But if I can add something to elevate the already amazing and almost-perfect sushi playing experience, I would add a wooden bowl of pickled ginger, teapot of green tea, and a soy sauce dip.
