Learning through play is a child’s daily work and mimicking what they see the grown-ups in their house doing helps to foster social skills, fine motor skills and encourages problem-solving and language development too.
Kids in the kitchen
With this in mind, playsets like toy kitchens offer a huge range of opportunities to pretend, practice socialising and process events in their own little lives.
We’ve done the leg work for you, scouting about to find some of the best wooden toy kitchens for toddlers and preschoolers. Here’s seven places to start.
1. Mint and neutral
Kmart is world-famous for their cute kids’ toys and excellent-looking homewares, so it’s no surprise that they’re selling a very covetable and reasonably-priced wooden kids’ kitchen. This gorgeous toy kitchen is $89 at Kmart (above).
2. Vintage cuteness
Perhaps you want a little bit of retro sensibility in your child’s room? This vintage-style wooden toy kitchen (above) is $259 at Wooden Wonderland and definitely fits the bill. It also comes in white!
