Playing kitchens is a firm favourite with many children – toddlers and older children too.
It’s very encouraging to see that the number of inclusive kitchen toys on the market seems to be growing; the toy kitchen industry seems to be moving faster than some other sectors at recognising the demand for attractive and functional toys that are free from tired old gender stereotypes.
We hope you enjoy this great selection of beautifully crafted mini kitchens, stoves, and food toys for your budding chefs.
All shops featured on this page have received the Let Toys Be Toys “Toymark award” – our good practice award for the stores that are getting it right.
Detachable jug, six sliceable fruits which are held together with velcro, a play knife and 2 wooden tumblers with removable toppings. Also a small dial at the base which makes a nice clicky noise as it goes round.
Start chopping, cutting & blending your way to a healthy lifestyle.
