Do you have a pretend kitchen for your child/ren?

I want to get one for my son for his second birthday in June. I've found a couple that I really like, but they are really expensive. Which one do you have? Where did you get it and about how much was it? Would you recommend it?

  • Depends on what you mean by pretend kitchen. I bought my kids a sink with lower cabinets and microwave oven. I bought it from Toys R Us and the cost was under or close to $100. I later bought ironing board, iron, shopping buggy, vacuum cleaner, fake food, plates, silverware, etc. The "kitchen" set was plastic. For my sons, I added a punching bag, leggo blocks and tools.

  • I have the Step 2 Lifestyle Party Time kitchen, its awesome. My daughter and her friends love it, and its colors are great for boys too. We buy her play food from Haba, which makes great quality wood toys from Germany. There are also some cute, simple kitchens by PLAN toys which I love because they're made from recycled rubber wood. Here's some helpful links:

  • The link to the one that I REALLY like is http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=4232146.  Another that I like is http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=10982709.  The problem with both is the price.  I want something that he can use for a few years.

  • We have the Step 2 Party Kitchen too-got it at Wal*Mart! WHATEVER YA DO-I DO NOT RECOMEND THE $40 ONE YOU CAN GET AT WALMART IT DOES NOT PUT TOGETHER WELL AND I THINK IN MY OPINION IS JUST CHEAP. Its well worth it to spend a lil extra (if you can). Save yourself the aggrevation.

  • I bought mine at Mills Fleet Farm, it was $35 and it is the same size as the little tykes one, but it takes awhile to put together. Once it was together it's fine. She plays with it constantly!

  • We got our girls the one from Wal-Mart and I do not care for it, it is cheaply made. We are going to get them the one from Pottery Barn because it is made of wood, they play with it all the time they love it.

  • No, my boys want one but I can't find one that is inexpensive but NOT pink! All I can find is for girls! What about the little boys? They like to cook too!

  • Hi! I'm Geneva and my sister got the girls their first kitchen set asbeing DORA THE EXPLORER. I HAVE MANAGED TO PURCHASE A DISNEY COBBLESTONE PLAYHOUSE because my mom and dad built mine and my sisters when we were young, I bought it at lowe's and kids always have fun with ownership and they could probably learn to keep house out of having one. My daughter is 4 yrs old and is demanding me set it up for her now, but we are in a rental and have to wait for the rest of her sister's estate to go through in order to get a house. I have separated from her Father so I definately wanted her to be able to keep herself enjoying life due to her losing loved ones, right and left. Her father kept trying to leave and I got tired of his threats and just put his things to the job, his dog, his clothes, and his whatever I found laying around and would make him look like he was needing a new home I'd place at his job for all to see.
