Hooked in Harmony: crocheted cotton play food

Hooked in Harmony, one of the Writing Contest Sponsors, sent me a variety of colorful handmade playfood to review!
Zari was so excited when the package arrived. Now we have "play lunch" several times a day.
I chose foods that we eat on a regular basis: carrots, green and purple grapes, sushi, edamame, tomatoes, lettuce, and eggs.

Hooked in Harmony's colorful play foods are hand-crocheted with 100% cotton yarn. I love the craftsmanship of this play food. I've done a some crocheting, enough to make a (very crooked) scarf and a few baby hats, and I know how much time and skill it takes to create such aesthetically pleasing objects.
Hooked in Harmony offers an extensive menu of foods, from sushi to sandwiches, from apples to waffles. For not much more than the cost of the real foods, you can have a full "meal" of natural, washable, non-toxic, and baby-safe play food.
