Which are the top five wooden toy kitchen’s at Cottage Toys? And how do you decided which is the perfect style for your child? Well, we love every wooden toy kitchen that we sell, it wouldn’t be onsite if not. However, when it comes to which is the best, there are several key points to consider.
First up. Price. As a boutique toy shop, offering more unique and high-end toys, our prices may be a little more expensive that what you can find on the high-street. However, we do still cater for all different kinds of budget. Our Honeybake range for example, starts at just £59.95, for the Honeybake kitchen sink. What’s so lovely about this set is that you can start with one unit, say the oven and hob set, then add to it each birthday or Christmas, until you have the complete kitchen. This is also a great way or spreading the cost. For those wanting to indulge their child in the ultimate wooden play kitchen, we would suggest our Le Toy Van Honey kitchen. An adorable, traditional style, with gingham curtains and butler-style sink. This wooden kitchen also features an oven and hob and shelving on one side for all those cooking utensils and play foods. It’s one or our larger wooden toy kitchen’s and the play value is immense. It’s the perfect first kitchen for both boys and girls and will last right up until the age of 7+.
Secondly, let us consider design. All our wooden toy kitchen’s are chosen for their aesthetic appeal. We have some more traditional styles. But if you are looking for something a little more modern, our Sebra Interior wooden kitchen is a very popular choice. If you love scandi-style this is the perfect choice for you. We also love the removable metal sink which is perfect if you child loves a little water-based play. It’s never too early to teach them how to wash up! Available in both grey and rose pink the Sebra kitchen is designed to appeal to both boys and girls. Our Bamboo wooden kitchen is the perfect offering for those looking for something a little more rustic. We love the simple, old-fashioned design. This also comes with three cooking utensils, pots and pan and a red gingham tea-towel. Another one of our more neutral wooden kitchens comes in the style of the Hape Gourmet kitchen in white. There is also a matching fridge freezer available until which is rather cool and unique!
Next, lets consider size. Not everyone has a large playroom for their child, dedicated to toys. In this instance it’s important to choose something that can be stored away when not in use, or that doesn’t take up too much room. The Honeybake sets are great as they are designed to be played with on a tabletop. This also reduces the amount of floor space required. We also have some smaller tabletop cookers from Hape and Le Toy Van. Both are more of a camping stove style and can be hidden away in a cupboard or drawer when necessary. They are just as fun to play with however! We love the idea of keeping one in the kitchen to be brought out and played with alongside mum or dad whilst they prepare the evening meal. It’s a great way to get involved in preparing the family supper and also keeps them busy!
Longevity is also worth considering when you are deciding which wooden toy kitchen to purchase for your child. All our toys are made from high quality wood and will stand the test of time. However, the larger style kitchen will all last your child right up until school age, and beyond. We know seven year old’s that still love to play chef!
Last, and by no means least, it’s all about personal preference. This will ultimately be the deciding factor. Which of our wooden toy kitchen’s have you fallen in love with the most?
