Best kids’ toy kitchen accessories 2020: Wooden sets your little cook will love

To get the most out of your child’s toy kitchen, one thing is for sure, you need to invest in a good set of accessories. By spending a little, it will make that tired play kitchen come alive and give it a new lease of life.  

Designed to build confidence, creativity and social skills in a fun and imaginative way, role play allows children to get into a character and act out real life scenarios, so it’s no surprise that there are thousands of toys designed to spark your little one’s imagination.  

Many toy brands have their own line of kitchen role play toys. Gone are the days of small plastic plates and cups, noisy toy telephones and neon coloured plastic fruit and veg, many products look so chic you’d happily have them in your own kitchen.  

We reviewed these play kitchen accessories with the help of our four-year-old tester, and because we know they’ll be getting a lot of use (if you pick the right ones, like the list below), we were looking out for quality manufacturing, but also the right weight and size for children to play with ease.  

Many of these accessories are wooden, which not only looks good but also lasts. A more sustainable choice than other materials, you can count on these becoming well-loved play-time favourites for generations to come.

It’s also about the finer details. Kids love things that twist, make a noise when shaken, or dials with clicking sounds, all of which heighten the role play experience, naturally garnering extra points with our tester.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and the geniuses at JoJo Maman Bebe know this all too well, creating this fabulous wooden set for little ones.

But, what will really capture your child’s attention is the special details, such as the honey and jam jars with screw lids, the Velcro on the bread loaf, butter and eggs meaning you can attach pieces together, and the wooden dial on the toaster that clicks when moved and a handle to push the toast up or down. Breakfast is well and truly served!
