Hape have created a Gourmet Kitchen that will delight children and allow them to play in a creative way for many hours. This kitchen is simple, yet stylish and allows children's imaginations to run wild. It contains all the functionality you would expect from a great quality toy kitchen including a washing up sink with taps marked red and blue to indicate hot and cold. It includes a double hob that looks just like a real electric cooker but without any of the danger, an oven with a door that you can open and see through to check when lunch is ready, a cupboard and a storage shelf. The simplicity of this kitchen means that children can really make it their own. They will love to collect together kitchen accessories including utensils, cups, plates and packets of food and arrange them in a way that works for them. Playing house and organising the kitchen is often just as much fun as the actual cooking. When everything is in its place, your little ones will love to concoct fantastic feasts for the whole family or even just a simple cup of tea for their grown up. Having guests over is an exciting opportunity for children to share their culinary skills and if friends want to join in and help, then this just doubles the enjoyment. Role-play is not only fun, but it is also a really important part of your child's development and this toy kitchen offers ample opportunity to develop those skills.
