7 Best Play Kitchens For Children

I have two small children – age 5 and 3. And they are beautiful and very playful, and guess what was always best playing time for them? Yep that is correct – play kitchen. They just loved it, and they’ve spent hours and hours playing with, although it wasn’t the best play kitchen the be honest, it was rather small, and both of them couldn’t play with it, only one at the same time. They played with it so much that the kitchen was worn out so badly, it literally fell apart and of course I had the throw it away.

Play kitchens are very good “toys” for children, so they can feel kitchen, how everything goes, and the most important factor of play kitchens is their imitation of adults cooking in the kitchen.

That is why I’ve decided the write an article “10 best play kitchens for children” the help you find out what is maybe the best play kitchen for your kid, your apartment ( if it is too big it won’t fit). I read a lot of reviews and according the reviews I composed just the best ones.

My favorite top lists:

Step2 Best Chef’s Toy Kitchen Playset


Customer reviews: 4,4 out of 5

Age recommendation: 2+

Don’t allow looks the deceive you – although it is plastic play kitchen, it offers so much for its price. First of all, it is designed for toddlers, and we know small children are very destructive, this plastic play kitchen can handle toddler’s power. Having their own kitchen can make them play with it for hours. They can also turn on gas burners, that can make sounds and lights up like real fire, and they will pretend like they are cooking real food.

If you have small children, toddlers, I would definitely recommend this play kitchen for a start.

We have the finish our selection with the most basic, evergreen child friendly design but fully equipped play kitchen with stove, sink,baking oven, cabinet,spice shelf and food accessories. I would recommend it the children of any age.


Like I said, I’ve read countless reviews about play kitchens, and these seven ones were far best based on reviews. I can guarantee you, no matter which play kitchen you will choose for your kid, you will not regret purchase, because, based on my experience, children will go for their own kitchen and playing time can last for hours, beside that, role-playing has a great developmental benefit for children.

My children played with play kitchen for hours and hours, and we enjoyed watching them every second, and I believe you will too.
