But the most beneficial thing is that a play kitchen can provide your kid with some private place, where he or she will like to spend some time. In this review, we will compare some of the best models of play kitchens on offer.
We also recommend you to pay attention to some other interesting children's products such as tricycles and our review of car model kits for young sportsmen and collectors.
What Features to Compare
Children's kitchens come in different designs and sizes. So, our advice is to choose kitchen Size according to the child’s height. The play kitchen is equipped with many kitchen appliances such as an oven, microwave, sink, etc. Usually, it comes as a single unit, normally set along the wall. Such kitchen will ideally fit in a small room.
But there are also kitchen corners, or even camping kitchens for barbeque. Children kitchen island – is a small toy kitchen which can be installed wherever you want. Thus, your kid can play with it even in the middle of the room. It is also equipped with all kinds of kitchenware. Such model is very mobile and you can always take it with you on a trip. Portability and mobility are the main features that make small kitchens so popular among buyers.
As all children like to imitate adults, give your child the opportunity to emulate your behaviour in the kitchen. We can assure you that you will never be upset because of broken dishes since all kitchen elements are made of quality plastic.
Some models have got adjustable legs so that the height of a kitchen can be customised to the needs of your child. You can buy such unit for a 2-year kid and be sure he or she is going to play it for long years.
While choosing a children kitchen, take into account its Material and the quality. Children kitchens can be made of wood or ecological plastic. Of course, the wooden models look more natural, but their surface requires proper care. The wood should be well polished, smooth and pleasant to touch. Plastic models should have no sharp corners. Make sure that your kitchen unit doesn't have a specific chemical odour and is strong enough to last longer.
We also recommend you to pay attention to the Extras, since they play an important role. The extra functions are able to make the game more exciting and realistic. They include imitation of cooking in a frying pan, the call of a kitchen timer, the hiss of appliances, the sound of a microwave oven and so on.
