New crawlers make their way to this inviting kitchen to investigate the sounds, shapes and doors to open and close. Learning cause and effect, little ones are fascinated with the play. Get a little older and a 2 year-old enjoys cooking up breakfast with his fried egg in the skillet or microwaving his drink, elevating the play to pretend. Sound effects for the sizzling stove, water faucet and turning knob,  reinforce creative activity and encourage a variety of actions.  Meanwhile, the refrigerator door serves as a shape sorter to slide the circular apple or drink, triangular cheese and square milk through the holes to come tumbling out the ice maker, all to giggles of delight. Although large, kid-sized kitchens are wonderful for pretend play, this smaller table top size is portable for anywhere.
