For the last couple of weeks we have been very fortunate to try out their Cookin' Creations Premium Wood Kitchen playset, and I have to say that the children have been thrilled at the opportunity. We bought a play kitchen for Miss H when she was eighteen months old, however it was a pretty basic one and whilst it got lots of use at the time, it was quite flimsy. It is now situated in the playhouse outside and gets battered every summer with pretend BBQ's.
This kitchen is in a completely different league. You can tell straight away, when you are building it what high quality it is going to be. The pieces are made of solid wood, with beautiful images on it of the clock and microwaves and muted primary colours making it not too garish. Even the worktop has a marble effect, which is a lovely touch.
It features a microwave, oven, dishwasher and washing machine, all the appliances you can find in your own kitchen so your little ones can be just like mummy and daddy. However I think my husband counted screws, so beware it does take a couple of hours to put together.
My children were so excited when they walked into the room to see the kitchen complete. Miss H immediately set to organising all the accessories whilst Little J preferred to repeatedly fill a cup from the tap and drink from it. The kitchen comes with three utensils, two pans with lids, three spice jars, a telephone and a basket. We added our own collection of play food to this, meaning they had tons of options for play.
To have a better look at the kitchen and watch it in action, have a look at the video below.
