Play Kitchens: More than Just a Cooking Class

Educational toys are all the rage these days. Toys that subtly help a child learn don’t have to be directly related to school, like number games or books. In fact, educational toys can help prepare children for responsibilities that come later in life. It seems like a lot of children just can’t wait to be a grown-up, and a play kitchen will serve as a stepping stone to utilize their maturity while still playing like the fun kids they are.

The Wooden Deluxe Kitchen is a solid fixture in any home, with shelf space for your child. The kitchen clock can be set for mealtime, and the timer will go off when the pretend food is ready. Kids can practice tidiness and hygiene with towels and aprons to hang on the rack and hook when finished.

Another great option is the Uptown Kitchen with Breakfast Bar and Two Stools. The play kitchen feels very natural with places to sit for your guests eager to “scarf down” the food your child pretended to cook. The play kitchen has a sleek look with desired dark wood and faux granite countertops. It’s as close to the real thing as you can get!

The best play kitchen for your child (and you!) is one that fits right in to the rest of your home d├ęcor. The very sturdy and wooden As Cozy As Home Play Kitchen comes with two pretend burners, turning knobs and cloth curtains above the sink. It comes with all the accessories you need, from food to dishes, silverware, blender, toaster and the works! Just like the others, pretend microwave and oven are included. Your child will feel like a professional chef in the greatest play kitchen with all the fixings.
