When my kids were younger, one of their very favorite toys was their play kitchen set. Hours and hours were spent in front of that little kitchen and they cooked up all kinds of delightful treats for me while they played. Lots of fun was had with their play kitchen set and even though they’ve grown out of them, I can’t help but stop and look every time I come across one. What can I say, I sort of miss those days.
Anyway, I recently came across this Little Tikes Play Kitchen and I fell in love. I wish this set had been out when my kids were little – they would have gone crazy over all the stuff that it comes with and how realistic it looks.
This kitchen play set comes features a refrigerator, stove, oven, built-in coffee pot (I wish I had one of those in my kitchen!), a microwave, a sink, dishwasher, storage space, hanging pots and pans, and even a stainless steel grill.
There’s an arched opening above the sink that allows for kids to serve their creations to people on the other side of the kitchen, which is lots of fun when they are playing with friends.
For even more fun, this play kitchen set by Little Tikes has real sound and light effects. The grill appears to flicker flames and the ice machine makes noise and drops plastic ice into the cups when pressed. And those little additions really keep kids attention.
I don’t remember what I paid for my kid’s play kitchen set when I bought it, but whatever it was, it was well worth it. This one is $169 and since I know Little Tikes makes quality products, I’d say it’s a pretty good buy at this price, especially if it gets as much play as ours did!
