KNITTED FRUIT & VEGGIES

We just love these knitted fruit and veggies, they look good enough to eat!

MapleApple are a mother and daughter design duo based in Latvia. These wonderful creations made from wire wool and acrylic. What a fantastic way to demonstrate the shapes, colours and individuality of everyday items such as the humble fruit and vegetable…

Here at ALLOTINABOX© we are passionate about getting everyone growing food at home, and it’s often a real challenge to get children to enjoy the benefits that fruit and vegetables can bring. Designed as a series of playful and and fun knitted toys, the collection includes, beetroot, chilli, radish, leeks, garlic, potatoes and carrots.

Real vegetables transformed into child-safe play food gets the big thumbs up from our head grower, each of the items really capture the shape and hues of each chosen vegetables. Hand-knitted to be safe for children, the knitted fruits and veggies also provides an alternative to plastic and wooden toys which in our eyes is a big healthy bonus!

What we really love is the way that the designers have incorporated knitted roots, so that they give an impression of being freshly plucked from the soil.
