Are you thinking about buying a play kitchen set for your kid but wonder whether it might not be appropriate as he’s older?
Play kitchen sets are appropriate for kids at any age. This role play is a wonderful way for them to run their creativity, enhance their social skills, regardless of their age.
Two or more children?
There was a time in my research regarding kitchen sets when I started thinking that getting a large play kitchen set might be the way to go. If you have two or more children, you know how they argue on toys, how sometimes they fixate on something and refuse to share it. That can be frustrating when you’re playing at a small kitchen set and have no room to carry out your activity properly. Luckily, large play kitchen sets are coming to the rescue.
These kitchen sets are the best for children aged 5 or older:
Large play kitchen for 5-year-old
A very friendly designed kitchen, light weighted, as it’s made of plastic. It has realistic features, such as sounds on the stove, lights. The things I found really attractive are the coffee maker station and the dog bowls under the storage space. I like that everything about this kitchen is very reachable, and that it comes with a lot of accessories, fully equipped for fun.
Such a realistic design, it’s like a real kitchen, but at a smaller scale. This one has a washer attached to it and as many families organize their kitchens to fit a washer, too, I think they’ll relate to this choice. The sounds and lights are very realistic, and the refrigerator is equipped with an ice dozer. The entire kitchen is both toddler and child friendly.
Large play kitchen for 8-year-old
Looking for a retro pink kitchen that will make you want to reconsider your own kitchen’s design? You got it here. This kitchen set has a refrigerator, an ice maker, a play phone an oven and plenty of room to store all the nice play foods that your kid wants to get.
A great kitchen set, compact, yet full, as it has both refrigerator and freezer, not a very common feature in toy kitchens. It can be enjoyed by older children nicely because of the height. The pastel colors make it look very easy to blend in most rooms. The best part about it is that being a larger kitchen set, it can used by two or even three kids at the same time. It has plenty of room for storage under and above the sink and a cute phone next to the refrigerator that will certainly attract the kids.
Role play is always a good idea, it is the type of play that enriches your child’s mind and helps them understand the surrounding world in a better way.
Even if your child is older and you might think that he’s no longer interested in this sort of games, I ask of you to give it a chance and you’ll be surprised.
According to different studies and UNICEF, Play is the best way there is for you child’s brain developing at all ages. Above all, free play, no rules are the ones that improve your child’s social and emotional skills in a way that no other thing can do.
You might think your child already knows these things, but the truth is, we never stop to learn better ways of managing our everyday life, our behavior, emotions. That is why pretend play never stops giving, it is an engaging play that offers a large number of situations meant to challenge your child’s brain.
