Checklist for Play Kitchens made of Wood

Age Recommendation
  • Play kitchens are suitable from toddler age. Up to 3 years, however, no small parts may be included, otherwise, there is a risk of suffocation.
  • From 2.5 years, a children’s kitchen is ideally suited, because, at this age, children finally begin to play real roles and can do much more with it. However, this depends on the stage of development, so that even younger children can already have fun.
  • The size should also be made age-dependent. Accordingly, the kitchen should be no more than 100 cm high for toddlers, so that the children can reach everything.
Material
  • In contrast to plastic, wood is much more robust, visually superior and durable. It also protects the environment.
  • In addition, there must be good workmanship so that there is no risk of injury. Wood splinters and sharp edges are a no-go.
  • In any case, the material must be free of harmful substances, which can be verified by a test seal (e.g. Stiftung Warentest). The varnishes used for protection must be water-based only.
Size and Equipment
  • Play kitchens are offered in different sizes. The height ranges from 80 cm to 120 cm and should be chosen according to the child’s height
  • The length and width should be selected according to space in the children’s room or garden. Starting with 50 cm long kitchens, they can also move up to 250 cm.
  • The larger the play kitchen, the more equipment is included. Always included are usually oven, sink and stove. In addition, refrigerator, microwave as well as coffee maker are possible. Toddlers are often overwhelmed with too much choice, so at this age a smaller kitchen with basic equipment is quite sufficient.

FAQ About Wooden Play Kitchen

Children’s kitchen: From when?

As a rule, children’s kitchens can be used from 1 year. 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 kitchen made of wood, on the other hand, is much more robust. 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.
