Because kids love playing “picky eater,” Fisher-Price is selling a toy charcuterie board for toddlers this holiday season. TODAY reports that the 15-piece “Snacks for Two” set comes with fabric salami and brie cheese, plastic pull-apart grapes and individual crackers, faux marble plates, cloth napkins, and a wood-accented cutting board. Perhaps not surprisingly, the $19.99 set has gone viral on Twitter. “Apparently, Fisher Price has a plastic snooty cheese plate,” one Twitter user wrote, while another said, “Feel truly insane after looking at these product photos of a children’s cheese and charcuterie board from Fisher-Price.” Others are calling it the perfect gift for the “fancy-a** child” or “bougie kid in your life.”

Really not sure why this charcuterie board toy is getting so much flack. Making a good cheese tray is an excellent social/hosting skill.
Several of my toys growing up were largely directed at me keeping house.
I call this progress.https://t.co/Ddy6c9uX4g

WHAT DO YOU THINK? People online have attacked the toy set for being snooty, too hipster-ish and too high-brow. Others defend the toy, calling it cute and something they would have liked as kids or even now. https://t.co/ihSYSwW2ni
