About KidKraft Kitchen
Since 1968, the American toy and furniture manufacture Kidkraft has been producing a range of products with which children can learn and play. Based in Dallas, Texas, the company has produced a variety of play kitchens, which are designed to be miniature versions of a real kitchen. Kidkraft kitchens are available in a wide range of designs and sizes to suit a variety of home interiors, including vintage, retro, prairie and modern designs.
Kidkraft kitchens are beautifully engineered to resemble a real kitchen, with a robust wood construction. Each kitchen includes fine details and interactive features, such as knobs that can be clicked and turned, doors that can be opened and closed, removable sinks, shelving and worktops. The kitchens are available in a range of colourful designs and are large enough to be used by one or more toddlers. Kidkraft kitchens often feature a variety of accessories to interact with, such as detachable phones, chalkboards, curtains and kitchen utensils.
There are many benefits to using a Kidkraft kitchen for pretend play. Not only do children enjoy the interactive nature of playing with the kitchen accessories, but they can learn to use and develop a number of essential skills. Kidkraft kitchens can help children develop practical skills, such as organising, cleaning, cooking and identifying objects. They can also learn social skills when playing with other children, such as learning to share, working as a team, decision making, leadership skills and learning to cooperate with other children.
