A play kitchen is one of those must have childhood staples in my opinion, they are so great for encouraging imaginative play and are wonderful for kids to play together with siblings or friends. I still remember my sister and I having countless hours of fun with ours! Little Tikes has many fun play kitchens to choose from and Pinky got to try out the new Little Tikes Cook N’ Grow Kitchen!
The Little Tikes Cook ‘n Grow Kitchen has 2 configurations so that it can grow with your child, an expanded setting and a compact. When the kitchen is expanded the height is just right for toddlers and compacting the kitchen makes it just right for preschoolers. We set it at the compact setting because of the lack of space but Pinky, who is just over 2-years-old, is just able to reach everything. At the expanded setting the counter top, sink and microwave are lower for shorter tots to reach.
Assembly was simple, just a few screws and applying the stickers and it was ready to go. It took about 25 minutes from start to finish.
Our little helper even helped a bit –
This play kitchen is a hit with Pinky, she loves the little pizzas that it comes with and “bakes” them all the time and she loves bringing them to her Dad and I once they are ready for us to “eat”. We’ve pretended to eat a lot of pizza in our house over the past few weeks! 🙂 There is also a coffee maker and Pinky likes to make and serve coffee to us.
It comes with over 50 pieces including a shape sorting stock pot, a burner that makes boiling and frying sounds depending on which pot or pan you set on it, a cupcake set, mini pizzas, burgers and hot dots. So, there are lots of baking and cooking options for your little chefs to create. All the eating utensils and cups are included too so you have everything you need to start cooking away.
I love that this kitchen is adjustable to suit your child and the expanded setting makes it easy for kids to play together without being crammed into one small area or if your limited on space like us you can set it to the compact setting so long as your child is tall enough. The fact that it comes with all of the accessories is great, especially at it’s price point of around $110. It’s a great play kitchen that is sure to make for hours of fun and encourage your child’s imagination.
