Before you buy a play kitchen for your kid, there are some factors that you need to consider first. You should decide on the size and the dimensions of the play kitchen that you want to buy and for sure you need to take the measurements of the place where you will put it in, so you can pick the right one.
You should also make sure that the play kitchen is appropriate for your kid’s age, you will find the suggested ages listed in the packaging of the play kitchen. This point is so important to pay special attention to, because choosing the right aged play kitchen will make playing more fun and much easier.
The kitchen’s size and dimensions will play a significant part in this point for example; a small dimensioned kitchen with short units will be perfect for four or six years old or preschooler kids and a kitchen with taller units will fit older kids. Make sure to choose the right color as well and don’t worry the play kitchens come with many colors to fit both boys and girls.
Last but not least always look for sturdy and durable materials, because your kids will be playing with their play kitchen for hours and for sure you want them to spend their fun time enjoying a sturdy and safe play kitchen.
Speaking of materials let me tell you about the available materials of the play kitchens that you can choose from, the first material is wood and the second is hard plastic. The hard plastic play kitchens are light weight, less expansive, but also less durable than wooden play kitchens. The hard plastic kitchens are so easy to move, clean and maintain.
The wooden play kitchens almost have the same features of the hard plastic ones, but they are more durable and more expensive because they are heirloom quality. The right choice may be controlled by your budget. Both of wooden and hard plastic kitchens may require some assembly, so make sure to make them ready before you surprise your kids with, if you plan to make it a holiday gift.
The basic features that come with any play kitchen are sink, stove, oven and refrigerator, but you will also find some play kitchen with additional features like, shelves, timer, microwave, dishwasher, clock and so many other cute features. Some play kitchen also comes with electronic appliances that make cooking lights and sounds so, make sure to buy some batteries. Some kitchen comes with cooking wares like pots and pans, so all you need to get is some additional food items.
