Play restaurant or call “Dinner’s Ready!” with Hape’s Gourmet Kitchen. Little chefs three years and up will delight in preparing and serving their favorite meals. It’s the perfect size for them. See what’s cooking through the oven window and then slide in a tray of cookies on the realistic die-cut oven rack. Heat up something scrumptious on the stove or in the oven and make sure to adjust the dials to the right temperature with a satisfying €œclick€. Wash up in the sink with hot or cold water and remove the tub to use to tote groceries. Store food and other kitchen essentials in the cabinet (or it could be a fridge). Little ones can do it all. There’s even a shelf on the backsplash to display cooking utensils and plates. Cabinet doors have magnetic closures to keep the oven or fridge doors closed. The Gourmet Kitchen is beautifully designed and easy to assemble with detailed instructions. Like all Hape products, the modern lifestyle colors combine with a traditional look allowing the kitchen to fit right in with the real thing (there’s no need to banish it to the play room).

Imaginative Play is Playfully Delicious

Your little chef will love the options the Gourmet Kitchen offers. She can create just one dish of food to serve friends, family, or her stuffed animals for dinner or mix them together and serve specials of the day at her restaurant. Gourmet Kitchen is part of Hape’s Playfully Delicious toy range, designed to promote realistic role play, language development, and encourage healthy eating. Hape suggests these tips for parents to engage with their child while playing with the Gourmet Kitchen: sit back and be served by your cook. Encourage dialogue. Ask what is in the dinner and how it was made. Introduce the idea of good and better foods and categories of food (fruits, vegetables, meat, dairy, etc.) Pretend to be a customer in a restaurant and be served. Add props to increase imaginative play: juice boxes, pretend fruits, vegetables, and other food, clean milk cartons, plastic cups, and go grocery shopping.

Quick, Simple Assembly

The Gourmet Kitchen is beautifully-designed and easy to assemble with detailed straight-forward instructions. An allen wrench (included) is the only tool required for assembly. Knobs, dials, and hinges are pre-installed and holes are predrilled to allow for quick setup.

High Quality Always from Hape

Rest assured, Hape products are carefully made of natural materials including wood from sustainably managed forests. The stove and oven dials are made of maple and the entire kitchen is colored with water-based paints. The safety of children is extremely important to Hape as a manufacturer whose range of toys is inspired by children. That is precisely why they place such high standards on the careful selection and processing of materials in the development of their toys. They source top-of-the-line materials from responsible suppliers around the world. The required raw materials list includes birch plywood from Russia and beech wood and water stain from Germany. All Hape products conform to toy testing as required by the ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) for the US and Canada. In fact, all toys also pass the strictest international standards of Europe and Japan, too.

Decent Space-Saving Kitchen We bought this kitchen in the hopes it would be a less toxic option despite being made in China. Hape, parent company of Educo, in response to having a lead recall on its Target line a few years ago seems to have put even more safety measures in place to prevent these sorts of toxic things from being applied to their toys. They source their paints and glues from Germany only, their plywood comes from Russia, and it’s my understanding that only the manufacturing end takes place in China. That said, I was disappointed to find that there are 3 parts to this kitchen that are made of particle board – the inner shelves and the back of the kitchen, thus the 4 stars.That aside, the kitchen is absolutely adorable. I do wish I’d had more details about the measurements of various parts before ordering and assembling the kitchen, as there seems to be so few details about this item online and as of yet, no reviews.Overall size: 27.5″ tall X 22″ wide X 13″ deepI…

Adorable little kitchen Got this as a Christmas gift for my 2yo daughter, and she loves it. It’s noticeably smaller than the plastic alternatives, and doesn’t have a microwave or anything, but for a kid it’s just as good.Pros:Compact size. Fits where other kitchen won’t, and doesn’t just take over the room.Design. Clean and cool-looking. It’s useful to note that the green color isn’t nearly as neon as Amazon’s pictures appear. There’s plenty of slots for utensils and dishes, and two large cabinets that double as the oven and fridge.Cons:Assembly. Of course I expected to put it together myself, but I would really have liked better instructions and more standard size screws. The hinges attach with the tiniest screws I’ve seen, and I had to hunt down eyeglass screwdrivers to put them on. The rest of the screws are allen-screws, and even with the key are slow going. Once I sorted it all out though, it really wasn’t THAT difficult.Build. The…
