I think we all love toys & enjoy watching the face of a child light up when they receive a new toy. Even our big kids enjoy new toys!

Children's Play Kitchens

Children's Play Kitchens include a variety of children's toy kitchens, children kitchen play-sets, and children's kitchen accessories which give your child hours of fun role playing in play kitchens for children. They come in a wide range of styles and materials including kids wooden kitchen sets.

Toddlers and children have long been drawn to make believe and a toddler kitchen set is a great way to encourage imagination, nutritional education, even spend time discussing how to go shopping, to make a shopping list, and so much more.

Older children can expand the play time advantages of children's play kitchen sets by learning about budget, measuring, recipes, and even learning how to organize supplies. This is a great activity for both boys and girls as each can learn in the areas of mathematics, reading, and writing as well as communication and developing skills which will help them in education as well as life.

Give a kid's play kitchen set to your children, grand children, and friends so they will have the opportunities to learn about kitchens, nutrition, and so much more.

KidKraft Uptown Espresso Kitchen

Recommended for ages 36 months - 15 years

Having a deluxe kids play kitchen can give your child a deluxe experience. The elegance is outstanding. Your child will begin to feel she has her very own kitchen and can begin to imagine what it would be like and how she would design her own dream kitchen one day.

Provide your child with ideas to get them started. What shall he cook tonight? What will she wear to go to the market? How will the meal be served. How many people are coming to dinner? Use the kids play kitchen as an opportunity to bring in educational topics such as math (how many apples do we need for a pie?), and then measuring for older children (how many ounces are in one cup).

The possibilities are just as limitless as the imagination.

Alex Toys Cooking Set - Kids' Play Kitchen Sets

Add some amazing cookware to your kid's play kitchen set so the real cooking, counting, measuring, and whipping can begin. Imagination is a treasure when it is nurtured and encouraged. Ask about that upcoming tea party and what will we serve with the tea? What are the ingredients in a cupcake? How many cupcakes are needed for 4 people?

The time to play can be enhanced with older children or adults who can offer challenges to meet the skills of each child and allow them to grow and learn along the way.

Learning Resources Kitchen Set

Recommended for children age 7 - 13

Once all the groceries are bought, the shelves are stocked, the recipes are worked out, the cooking is done, the fun is just beginning! Now you can set the table, count the guests, make sure everyone will have all the utensils they will need. It is never too early to begin learning the process from market to table. It may even be fun to visit a farm and pick a few fresh vegetables or read books about farms. This way as you are setting the imaginary table and putting the meal on the table you can remind them where the market gets the food and how resourceful they have been to go through the process of preparing such a wonderful meal.

Give children a lot of independent time as well as interaction with you (adult or older children) so they have the best opportunity to learn and have fun while playing in a kid's size play kitchen.

 

Chef Role Play Kitchen Set - Kids Play Kitchen Sets

Expand on the play time by adding essential costumes as shown in the Chef Role Play kitchen set. Provide these garments (costumes) so your child can dress up and step into the kids play kitchen with confidence and to expand imagination and role playing so the experience is more than just play. Your child will be better able to step into the role of chef and will begin to 'become the chef' and have fun making up all kinds of recipes to whip up in the kids play kitchen.

Thank you for stopping by!

      I remember when my dad bought me a kitchen set. I was so happy that he went out and selected one himself!

      Play kitchen sets sure have gotten popular and both boys and girls love the play kitchen experience and they get to practice their house keeping skills while having fun! My sister and I sure did enjoy our play kitchen stove that really cooked little cakes but mostly just melted butter on top of crackers.

      Don't you just love the 'meals' kids come up with in a play kitchen? Besides being a fun and educational 'toy', it really sparks their little imaginations!

      One of my most fond memories involves my sister and me playing with our play kitchen. Back then, they were made of metal and 3 pieces - stove, fridge and sink. We played "house" for hours! Then, both my kids had play kitchens too!

      Our grandchildren totally enjoyed a play kitchen set similar to these when they were small. They "cooked and served" all kinds of things!
