Let’s Play Kitchens! – Let Toys Be Toys Gift Guide

Playing kitchens is a firm favourite with many children – toddlers and older children too. So popular, in fact that we’ve had to rewrite this guide a few times as these fabulous toys are going out of stock so fast!

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 or been nominated for the Let Toys Be Toys “Toymark award” – our good practice award for the stores that are getting it right.
