Comments about Learning Resources Farmer's Market Color Sorting Set - 30 per set:

Love the product but the thing that is bugging me is that it's missing the color blue and some of the vegetables and fruits could be confusing to little ones. (Ex: red, yellow and green apple as well as the yellow, orange and green bell peppers)

        I am using these baskets with my students. One of them recognized the banana and wanted to bite it. He seems to enjoy touching and feeling the variety and texture of the fruits and vegetables.

          This toy has made it through all 3 of my children and is still in pristine condition. I recently purchased a set for our church nursery as well, since it has held up so well.

          It serves multiple purposes.

          1) It is great for pretend play and I love that it comes with the color sorting bins for storage.

          2) It is great for a color sorting activity, as intended. I like that there are stickers for the color on both the outside and inside of the bins. (Putting on the stickers is the only 'assembly' necessary.) I like that for the most part the pieces of food are one color. There are a few pieces with 2 colors; the carrot is orange with a green top. And is great for discussion within the color sorting activity.

            New Sprouts Farmer's Market

            By mnErin

            from Fridley, MN

            Comments about Learning Resources Farmer's Market Color Sorting Set - 30 per set:

            The item description doesn't say which foods are included so I will do that for you. You get 5 of each color of foods.

            red: apple, grapes, raspberries, strawberry, tomato
            yellow: apple, banana, corn, lemon, pepper
            orange: apricot, carrot, clementine/orange, pepper, pumpkin
            green: apple, broccoli, cucumber, lime, pepper
            purple: berries, eggplant, grapes, onions, plum

            I love this toy! I am a huge fan of the New Sprouts line that I recently discovered. Seriously the best play food I've ever seen! I got so excited about it I gave her some presents early because I knew she'd love it and then bought more for Christmas. She's 19mos old right now and this food is sized perfectly for her hands and very realistically detailed (although not sized to scale to keep it well proportioned to her hands). Its made of a high quality rubbery kind of plastic that seems like it will hold up for years and years. I love that this set has a pumpkin (its so cute) as well as foods that are unique to this set such as the different colors of apples, the colored peppers (yellow orange and green), raspberries, purple version of the onion, eggplant, lime, and red grapes

            The only thing that disappointed me about this toy was that it didn't come with the red pepper because it comes with the 3 other colors of peppers. Before finding this product I had ordered the new sprouts veggie bushel for my daughter and I returned it once I ordered this thinking that all of the foods would be duplicates of things from other sets I purchased already....except for the red pepper. I didn't catch that the red pepper was exclusive to the veggie bushel set until my farmers market came today and Im like wheres the red pepper? So the part of me that likes to have complete sets of things is frustrated because if I re-buy the veggie bushel I will then have duplicates of every other veggie.

            So anyways my nitpicky suggestion would be to replace the red grapes with the red pepper...(doesn't seem like red grapes are a very common thing I usually just see purple and green at my grocery store) and replace the cucumber (because it is found in other sets) with green grapes and then the set would be completely perfect!

            When I saw this toy online I was a little confused at first because this toy looked just like the new sprouts foods in the picture but wasn't called that. So I asked the company and they confirmed it is the same quality of foods and now that I own it I can confirm that myself! Im not sure why this product isn't called new sprouts or why it's labeled ages 3 and up when the new sprouts is labeled 2 and up and it's the same toys but whatever I love it! I love that we can play food now and later on use it to help her learn colors and play in different ways. Very nice!

            Bought this for my 2 1/2 yr old granddaughter for Christmas. Would have rated it higher if it had been given to her already but it's not Christmas yet and I therefore haven't seen it work.

            Cartridge Comparison Guide
            • Cartridge Types
            • Ink & Toner Basics
            • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
            Cartridge Type
            Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
            Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
            Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
            Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
            What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
            Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
            Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
            Material Liquid ink Dry powder
            How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
            Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
            Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
            Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
            Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
