The 5 Best Children’s Kitchens – Guidebook

Children love to make up stories or play father-mother-child. They also like to use children’s kitchens, which offer quite a few accessories. Whether it’s food, dishes, or cooking aprons, your child has a wide variety of options to get creative. Nevertheless, you should consider some important factors for the children’s kitchen so that your child can enjoy it for a long time.

For this purpose, we have created a suitable checklist that covers all the important information. With the help of our product recommendations, we also give you concrete incentives for the purchase.

Checklist For Children’s Kitchens

Material
  • The preferred materials for children’s kitchens are wood and plastic.
  • Children’s kitchens made of plastic are usually particularly bright and colorful, as well as being easy to clean and light in weight, which also makes them particularly easy to put away.
  • Models made of wood, on the other hand, are particularly sturdy and have a higher overall quality.
  • Whichever material you choose, always make sure that it is free of harmful substances. Appropriate test seals can provide information about this.
  • In the case of wooden children’s kitchens, you should also check that there are no splinters that children could injure themselves on.
  • If there is a garden, balcony or terrace, you can also check whether the play kitchen is intended for outdoor use.
Size
  • The size of the children’s kitchen should be based on two main criteria: The size of the child and the available space.
  • Orient the height of the play kitchen to the height of the child. After all, the child should be able to reach everything easily, but the kitchen unit should not protrude so that he or she has to bend over.
  • Also pay attention to the age recommendation of the manufacturer. Many children’s kitchens are recommended from the age of 3.
  • The wider the kitchen, the more space it offers for various kitchen elements and creative kitchen fun. However, wider kitchens naturally take up more space, and this should be taken into account. After all, a children’s kitchen usually remains permanently built.
Scope
  • The play kitchens for children usually come with basic equipment , which consists of a stove, oven and sink.
  • However, larger models naturally offer more kitchen elements and features for kids to explore. This may include a refrigerator or microwave, but also a coffee or espresso maker, a dishwasher, an extractor hood or a freezer compartment.
  • Of course, upper and lower cabinets for sufficient storage space are also important.
Accessories
  • playing in the children’s kitchen is only really fun with the right accessories. Many kitchens are therefore already supplied with a small selection of dishes, cooking utensils, or even food so that the play can begin directly.
  • At some manufacturers you will find matching tableware sets that are perfectly matched to the design of the children’s kitchen. So everything fits together coherently.
  • If no accessories are supplied with the kitchen or if you want a larger selection of play options for your child, you will find an almost infinite variety of cookware and tableware, kitchen utensils, and various accessories such as chef’s hats and aprons. There is also a large selection of food that can be prepared in the play kitchen.
  • Great for children also play kitchens with integrated sound functions, for example, with the sound of a running faucet or boiling water on the stove.
  • Light effects can also be found, e.g. an electric hob that lights up.

FAQ About The Children’s Kitchen

Children’s kitchen: From when?

As a rule, children’s kitchens can be used from the age of 1. However, some are only released from 3 years, because small parts may be included or the kitchen is more detailed.

Children’s kitchen: Wood or plastic?

Both a children’s kitchen made of wood and one made of plastic has advantages and disadvantages. A plastic kitchen is easy to move around and clean. A wooden kitchen, on the other hand, is much sturdier. In addition, the wood is probably visually more beautiful and simple design.

How much does a children’s kitchen cost?

The price of children’s kitchens ranges from 40 to over 200€. This is primarily dependent on the material. Wood is more durable and therefore more expensive than plastic. In addition, the size is crucial, where larger kitchens, for example, additionally a freezer compartment or more storage space is given. So with these the price is of course also higher.

Which children’s kitchen is the best?

Only you can answer this question, because you should adapt the kitchen, the material and the equipment to the needs of your child. The design can also play a big role for your child in the choice.

How long can a child play with a children’s kitchen?

Your child can play with a play kitchen and matching accessories for as long as they want. When children start school, they usually turn to other leisure activities, which is why the play kitchen is usually used at the age of 2 – 5 years.

What accessories are available?

There are many different sets of dishes and cooking utensils that your child is sure to have a lot of fun with. But matching food that can be “prepared” in the kitchen is also popular with children.
