We all remember playing kitchen, cooking, running a cafe when were younger but I don't remember it being this fancy! My girl has hit that age where she absolutely loves taking orders for drinks, food and even presenting me her french class book as the menu. More often than not at weekends when it's cold and wet we tend to stay in and I would set up a variety of activities to keep her busy.
I usually move the kitchen into the lounge and use the TV unit as laying everything out so it's like a shop for her to buy all her ingredients. The shop is laid out in sections with fruits, veg, meat, seafood and naughty treats and she absolutely loves it. We were recently sent this beautiful wooden *Hape set Tea for two and *Hape Waffle Maker and my girl absolutely loves them. We have brought Hape products in the past before because they are always great quality and wooden which I love personally.
Both sets are the perfect size for any small child's kitchen and not heavy for them to carry the entire thing themselves. I love the colours, it's gender neutral which makes them great presents for Birthday / Christmas for both boys and girls. Hape tea set for two comes with 2 cups and saucers, milk jug, sugar jug with spoon, tea jug with tea bag and a tray to put it all on. Hape waffle maker comes with the waffle maker, 4 piece of waffles and strawberry, plate, tongs and a syrup bottle just like the real thing! I love how they both fit perfectly in her little kitchen and she knew exactly what to do with them. Both sets gave her hours of fun with me and hubby joining in on the role play with her and she loved it.
Look at her cooking away in her kitchen and giving me some peace and quiet!
