innovative children's products
that encourage them to get up and be active while playing. Offering
everything from baby toys and children's furniture to riding toys and
workshops...they have created a line of products that parents can trust
and turn to time and time again.
Both Kaelyn and Kaden are at an age where they love to engage in pretend play. I love to sit back and watch their creativity and imaginations at work. They never cease to amaze me with the dramatic play ideas they come up with, and I want to help encourage that in any way I can. And, when it comes to companies that offer high quality toys for kids, Little Tikes comes to mind right away!
Over the years we've owned several Little Tikes products and have always been impressed with the quality, educational value and overall appeal. That's why I was happy to learn we were going to have the opportunity to review one of their great toys this holiday season, the Cook n' Grow Kitchen!

Cook n' Grow Kitchen from Little Tikes comes with 50+ accessories including plates, cups, pots, etc!
Not only that, but of course there's also many features that make playtime fun, including an oven, refrigerator, and microwave...all with doors that open and close. Kaelyn and Kaden love to bake us up goodies in them! And, when it's time to cook at the stove, the electronic cooking sounds are a lot of fun too!
There's also hooks for hanging cups and molded slots to hold plates to help keep everything organized.
Kitchen is expanded and the height is just right for toddlers and 2)Compacting the kitchen makes it just right for preschoolers.
Kaelyn and Kaden both like it compacted so that's it's more at their height, but when Caysen wants to play, the expanded height works out great for his age/height! I love this feature because most kitchens would still be too tall from him to really get the most out of playing with it, not this one though! He is able to play right along with his brother and sister, and has a GREAT time too! The fact that this kid's kitchen playset grows with children is just another reason why I think it would make a fantastic gift for young children. It's something that families can be certain will last them for many years, remaining a source of fun the whole time!
Although Caysen is a bit too young to engage in role play like his siblings, he does enjoy the included shape-sorting pot with lids. It helps a child his age develop fine motor skills, matching and more! I truly appreciate that Little Tikes thought of various ages when creating this fun kitchen playset, it's perfect for the age range our kids are (1-5 years old)!
I also appreciate that it's very easy to expand or make compact. By simply sliding in a piece between the two sides to hook them together, and securing a hook on the back, you can go from one stage to another very quickly.
As you can probably see, we are thrilled with how versatile, fun and engaging the Little Tikes Cook n' Grow Kitchen is for our kids! I would definitely recommend it as a must-have Christmas gift this holiday season.
