  • My 2 year old son plays with his older sister's kitchen set all the time. It has been a huge hit with him! He also loves her Littlest Pet Shops and her Barbie house. I'm glad my husband is secure enough with himself not to let it bother him! We bought hers when she was 3, and that was 6 years ago so I doubt they still have the same ones out so I can't help you there.

  • Buy him the kitchen. My boys LOVE playing in toy kitchens even now that they are 4. My only advice is to get one of the really nice step 2 kitchens that he can grow into. We got a smaller kitchen, and though they loved it and played with it often, they grew out of it quickly.

  • We bought my son a kitchen, and he loves it. There are many that are 'neutral' (not pink and look like real kitchens) out there, if you're worry that someone would say something about it being girly--but who cares if they like it. Boys like to pretend play too. We have this Step 2 Lifestyle New Traditions set, but I think it was closer to $90 or $100 when I got it, so check around on prices. I like the details of the stickers, the microwave and stove top makes cooking sounds, and this one is smaller than some of the more expensive ones out there, so it takes up less space which is good for a small room. We have some toy foods and plates, and he loves to set the table with them and tell us 'It's EAT TIME, time to eat!'. LOL

  • My 2.5 yr old has his own kitchen...he is the only child so its his not a sisters or cousins. Boys can be chefs My DS loves it...I put it in the dinning room close to the kitchen where i cook and he imitates me with out it getting dangerous with him trying to use the real stove. Its a great boding experience for you and your son. Dont let hubby try to squash the little ones curiosity and interest.
