Kitchen playsets are one of the best gifts you can give your child and your family. This season I'm loving the sets I found at Whimsmoore. These green gifts are gorgeous creations that will provide hours of imaginative play. A handmade wooden kitchen inspires kids to cook up loads of meals (my favorite is chocolate cupcake soup!) and work as a team.
The delightful Juliana kitchen (34" tall, 23½" wide, 12" deep; the working surface is about 22") includes a single shelf above the cooktop for storage and knobs to control the range and oven. There are lots of chances for interactive play doors to open, knobs to spin and counters for mixing. This is a terrific toy for a playdate or for siblings since there is so much "work" that can be done.
Handmade by Elves & Angels of Maine, all of these toys come with a lifetime warranty (now that is a good investment). The playgroup my daughter belonged to at age two used these sets and I can say they only looked better with time. The kitchens are constructed with Northern White Pine and finished with "ELF OIL", a non-toxic Linseed oil, that appears richer over time. Julianna's kitchen was $207 is now $189. And Whimsmoore.com is offering FREE SHIPPING. For a slightly smaller kitchen, check out the Christina model ($169)
