Cooking Toys For Kids
In fact, my boy loves to play with their cooking toys more than his sister at one time. Then he moved on to cars. Now he is playing with his stationary, something he learned at school. Pencil lead boxes have become his latest craze. The pencil lead boxes turn into flying machines and whatever else his imagination takes him.
This post covers all types of cooking toys for kids, starting from kitchens, cookware, aprons and the food of course! Most kids will enjoy getting any of these toys as Christmas or Birthday gifts. If you are not sure what cooking toy to buy as a gift, browse this site to get some ideas.

Ideas For Cooking Toys For Kids As Gifts - When Buying Cooking Toys For Kids, You Can Use These Ideas
Cooking toys are loved by both boys and girls although sometimes gender biased makes it seem as though it is more suitable for girls. That is why most cooking toys are in pink or more girlish colors. This post features cooking toys for both girls and boys so careful thought is used when researching toys for both genders.
All items and ideas from this page come from different manufacturers to give you a better choice when selecting cooking toys for kids.
Start with a basic kitchen. This is the most expensive item for your cooking toy but it is a worthwhile one. A toy kitchen is useful to keep kids busy while mummy cooks. Creative parents can make their own kitchens with recycled boxes.
Once you have the kitchen, or if you prefer not to have a kitchen due to space constraints and budget, consider cookware. Pots and pans and spoons and ladles are great gifts for kids and don't cost very much. Young kids may prefer colorful ones while older kids will probably enjoy pots and pans that look like the real ones mummy is using in the kitchen. Get stainless steel or wooden cookware toys for older kids.
For families which do a lot of baking, get baking toys instead of pots and pans. This will allow the child to imitate mummy or daddy and role play at being a bakery shop owner.
Once you have got some basic cooking toys in place, get your child an apron or a chef's hat or costume so they can dress the part as they play. This is really fun for a child and a good gift item to add to their cooking toys.
Next, you will need toy food of course. To encourage healthy choices in food by kids, get fruits and vegetables, cakes and cookies for those who enjoy baking or fast food just for fun. Other foods include meats and desserts as well.
Finally, your child will need utensils and toy plates, bowls, cups and other dish play sets to serve all of that food they just cooked up!
First, You Will Need A Kitchen - KidKraft Grand Gourmet Kitchen
If you can afford it, the first cooking toy your child should have is a kitchen. A kitchen is the best way a kid can learn to role play.
If you can afford it and if you have the space, get a kitchen like your own, to put just outside your own kitchen. This way, your child can play his or her cooking games while you are busy preparing your meals.
This KidKraft Grand Gourmet Corner Kitchen is a good example. It is a little to pink for boys to use.
Many boys would like to have their own kitchen too. It is okay to let them play with it. You can consider some other not so feminine looking ones for boys.
