Sophisticated children can squish the cheese, slice the salami with a toy knife and pull grapes from the stems.
Fisher-Price has been a favorite toy company of many people over the years. It also seems as if they have the ability to offend, thanks to a new charcuterie board playset for preschoolers, Snacks for Two.
You can buy the 17 piece kit on Amazon for $14. It includes everything you need to get started, fake cheese, grapes, salami and crackers; fabric napkins preprinted with adorable mottos, faux-marble plates, a wood-accented cutting board and a tiny toy knife.
The Fisher-Price toy can entertain children and help them develop skills. Sophisticated children can squish the cheese, slice the salami with a toy knife and pull grapes from the stems.
It seems as if this is just too much for some people to handle. The toy, made for ages 3 and up, along with the advertisement has sparked a firestorm of controversy online. People are now calling it ‘snooty’.
“This is the most bougie toy I’ve ever seen,” writes one disturbed Twitter user.
This is the most bougie toy I’ve ever seen. A fucking toddler rocking a Fedora and serving salami to nother one in a beret? 🤦🏼♀️ The persnickety rep at @FisherPrice who thought this was a great idea should be demoted. https://t.co/4WJ5NaTa4i

“What the heck is happening to kids’ toys?” writes another.
A #FisherPrice charcuterie tray? A #Friends-themed Lego set? What the heck is happening to kids' toys? Sure, I'll never forget my "My Dinner With Andre" action figures, but…
We'll talk it over at 10 on #Middays @KMBZradio

There are also people willing to defend the set.
“Really not sure why this charcuterie board toy is getting so much flack,” tweets Louisville, Kentucky, columnist Maggie Menderski. “Making a good cheese tray is an excellent social/hosting skill.”
