Obviously it's up to you what colours you want. But remember that kitchens are no longer girls-only. Boys love to play with toy kitchens and if it's all pink you may regret it later. Then again, who said pink isn't for boys!
We're not sure why but when we tried to purchase a play kitchen for our daughter, it took ages to come. So make sure you but in advance!
This is one toy that will be used for a few years. (A welcome change!) So make sure you get a material that lasts. Imagine it's not a toy kitchen at all but YOUR kitchen. (We prefer wood!)
Taps that work with real running water and fridges that make noises may sound amazing but if you're going to be putting your kitchen next to a plug socket be careful - remember the point is to promote independent play.
Many toy kitchens come with the ability to mount to the wall but double check if you want this feature. Play is good but safety first!
Make sure it'll fit! We know this is important so we've got every single toy kitchen listed with a width/length so that you can measure first.
Kitchens are great fun but there's only so many times you can open and close a cupboard or oven door. Make sure your kitchen comes with a starter kit (most do). Then we strongly advise you top up with some extras.
Our play kitchen was amazing and our little one loved it immediately but my god, was the building of it time consuming and hard work. If you're good with instructions and fiddly bits, go for it. Otherwise look out for ones that have a pre assembled feature.
