This tool is a real winner with children and adults alike. It peels, cores and slices apples, just with the turn of the handle. It's not only very impressive, it is incredibly useful, fun and easy to use. It's amazing how many apples children want to munch when there's one of these around! Not only great for a fun snack, but a brilliant way to get helpers to prepare an apple glut for any use. This is also useful to peel potatoes - the slice / core blade needs to be removed to do this. We have found that children from around 2 1/2 are able to turn the handle to make this work (this is a personal observation, not a recommendation).
Please note: this is not a toy nor has it been designed for children - it is an everyday item. Any decision regarding using this tool with children needs to be made by the supervising adult. We recommend constant adult supervision and use of relevent risk assessment.
