Pretend Play Home gifts have really withstood the test of time in our family. The “must have” toys of the season seem to amuse my kiddos for a few weeks, and then they are right back to cooking dinner in the play kitchen.
I’ve created a Room-by-Room Pretend Play Home Gift Guide to help you pick some items that will be played with for years to come. I am highlighting a few of my favorites, and then linking to a more comprehensive toy list for each category.
KidKraft gets my vote for all-around best play kitchens. They have several styles, but this cranberry retro kitchen is my favorite.
The Little Tikes Splish Splash Sink & Stove is a great option for a small budget or small space. The sink really holds water.
The Fisher-Price Servin’ Surprises Kitchen & Table does double duty.
The Little Tikes Cook N Grow Kitchen can be reconfigured as your child gets taller.
Want a full kitchen? Go with the KidKraft Corner Kitchen.
