This sturdy wooden toy kitchen really stands the test of time. Unlike some of its plastic counterparts, it can withstand many hours of play from little fingers. Children love role play and it is a crucial part of their development. Whether they are playing on their own or with friends, the kitchen enables them to try out a number of different skills. When playing with friends, kitchen role play is great for developing the skills of sharing and socialising. The Chad Valley Deluxe Large Wooden kitchen has a stylish design and would be a lovely addition to any playroom, being loved equally by both boys and girls. Every little detail has been carefully considered to maximize your child's enjoyment. From the colourful pictures which inspire their imagination right through to the chunky control knobs that are easy to use and the sink with twistable taps for a realistic experience. The kitchen is also equipped with a double hob to enable multiple pans to be used, a fridge, freezer, oven and washing machine. This means your child can pop a wash on at the same time as cooking dinner for the family. To ensure that your busy little bees don't forget anything there is a handy blackboard for them to make notes on. The working ice container on the fridge is always a winner and means that when guests drop by they can be treated to a cool drink. This is really a lovely example of a stylish and functional play kitchen.
