Why children love to play kitchen

From birth, children look at adults and try to imitate them. That's why playing in the kitchen is a fun game that children love, because they can do exactly what adults do. They get to imitate adults and swap roles with them.

Children from 1 year old can play with the kitchen. Play will gradually change as the child gets older. The reason a play kitchen is such a good investment is that the child can play with the kitchen for many years to come. Right up to school age or beyond, kitchen play will be fun and developmental for children.

Young children under 3 will enjoy putting play food in the play pot, turning the knobs on the stove and learning the words on the different food items. As children get to 3-4 years old, play begins to change and become more structured. Children start to set the table for each other or for mum and dad, and serve food to everyone. Dolls and teddy bears are often invited to dinner too.
