Allez cuisine! (I’m not sure if I spelled that right. Iron Chef watchers know what I’m talking about.)

I got this from MothersClick.com newsletter, which highlighted ClassyMommy.com, a website for baby and shower gifts.

ClassyMommy found a wooden sushi toy set from NicoandZoe.com.

Isn’t that wild? Can kids even eat raw fish??? Is it appropriate to give a kid a fake set of food they can’t eat yet?

I could give a set away with my book, Sushi for One? It would match my book, don’t you think? What do you say? Or do you think mothers all over would think I was more nuts than I already am?


  1. Camy,

    I love it! It would be thoroughly appropriate if you gave away a set with your book.

    I have no idea whether it's appropriate for kids or not, but it would make me happy. :-)

  2. I don't know whether or not it's okay to give kids raw fish. I'm not a mom, so I've never heard one way or the other.

    But I wouldn't be so concerned about the fake raw fish. I'm a little wary of that giant cleaver that's sitting in the back! :)


  3. Awesome! What a fun set to display or give away at your book signings! It will give Ginny good competition with her wacky mushrooms!

  4. Lol, I'm pretty sure eating raw fish isn't all that good for kiddos BUT the set is made out of wood and I don't think a kid can really eat wood even if they tried, or at least I hope not. Seriously though that set is too cute! I, like Sbaar, wonder a little about the cleaver though!

  5. OH, give it away! Make somebody's day.

  6. Love the sushi toyset. That's hilarious.

  7. Honestly, my kids wouldn't know what to do with it. They'd look at you and go, so, where's the real toy? LOL! Then again, I think my twins would find some use with the fake knife. Oh, I can see them now--"Wait! I wanna see if it will really cut!"

  8. Aww, what a cool idea, Camy! You could even split the pieces up, include one or the "role" with the set of chopsticks you're doing. What fun! Pop in a pack of dry seaweed and you're set. LOL!

  9. Such a perfect idea for a giveaway with your book...maybe at book signings having a set out. It would certainly draw attention which is always good! Can't wait until your book is finally out.

    Thanks for stopping by and watching my blog video...so glad you liked it!

  10. I think this sushi toy set is a great idea. What fun!!

  11. I *love* it. And CJ would so let the kids play with it in day care. :)

  12. I think it would be a great gift for children. It would introduce them to new food, culture, etc. Sushi is delicious!
    Yes, giving it away with your book is a a must! :-)

  13. My kids have fake sushi in their pretend kitchen. I bought it last year for Christmas. It came complete with chopsticks, wasabi, a square plate, etc. Not as nice as your example, but cost under $10. My daughter just saw your set. Now she wants that one too!
