If there is one thing that is practically a “staple” in a young lady’s toy ensemble, it is a kitchen. The best wooden kitchens for kids 2010 are known to be quite durable – and they also have quite a number of entertaining and creative features.
For this year, here are the top 3 picks in wooden kitchens for kids, based on consumer popularity:
1. Plan Toys Kids Wooden Kitchen Center (for kids around 3 to 6 years of age) – Although this is a compact version of a full kitchen, this little center packs quite a few great features! One side has a stove and an oven, while the other side bears a sink area. There is shelving above the base area, allowing more room to store dishes and utensils – or perhaps a fun decoration. This model wooden kitchen is environmentally safe and is great addition to a room or a day care center for kids.
2. Large Pastel Wooden Kitchen from KidKraft (for kids about 4 to 8 years of age) – This kitchen is quite a bit larger than the one above, with lots of space for kids to create. The general design of this kitchen includes a one-sided kitchen (as opposed to a “center” which includes appliances on both sides), with a refrigerator, freezer, oven and microwave – as well as a sink area and other appliances and spaces. A very cute overall look, having all pastel colors and is a good choice for a young lady.
3. Pink Wooden Retro Kitchen from KidKraft (for kids about 3 to 5 years of age) – This kitchen has an aged or “retro” look about it, and has adorable features that look even cuter in the color pink. KidKraft has done a remarkable job with creating realistic and durable toys for kids to enjoy, and this particular wooden kitchen appears that it is not an exception to that rule. The features of this kitchen include a refrigerator, freezer, oven and dishwasher – all with doors that open and close. Perhaps the one thing that stands out the most about this choice is the overall look – it can certainly bring back some memories for us not so young “kids”!
Kids play kitchens certainly have come a long way since I was a girl, and the best wooden kitchens for kids are particularly entertaining and appear to have quite lifelike qualities that make playtime even more fun.
