The Little Tikes kitchen and restaurant really gives more bang for your buck. It offers a wide variety of activities combining toy kitchen with serving hatch and payment facilities. This is a toy that will be loved by children for many years and is recommended for children between the age of two, right through to school age. The toy is hinged and can be opened out to turn into a restaurant. Alternatively, the hatch can be placed at a 90-degree angle if space is at a premium, or if the diner prefers to face the chef to have a little chat. Equipment includes a handy stool for the diner to sit at, a panini press which emits exciting sizzling noises and steam and chalkboards for the chef to advertise the day's specials. There is a phone and credit card machine as you would expect in any modern restaurant as well as a coffee maker, ice dispenser and generously sized sink to tidy up after dinner service. The fun coffee pot is great for refilling your diner’s drinks and the generous selection of food means your child can offer a menu full of variety. The accessory pack also includes pans, cups, plates, utensils and crockery as well as an order pad, which is a must for any restaurant owner as well as a clip above the stove to place the orders once they have been taken. This kitchen and restaurants offers absolutely hours of role-playing fun that children can adapt and enjoy for many years.
