Budding chefs grow up! With the Hape All-in-1 Kitchen, your kids can have fun kneading, sautéing, and baking all kinds of food. All in a safe, easy and clean way.

For children, cooking is not only a creative and fun activity. It is also an excellent way to stimulate the development of many crucial skills: check out the article dealing with fun recipes to make with children.

Every parent should try to involve children in cooking activities, suggesting to prepare together something to eat. But we don’t always have the time to supervise the little ones in grown-ups kitchen activities. So why not line up a like-real kitchen toy? In this way, parents and children can enjoy all the benefits of cooking together in a safe, clean and fun way.

Let’s look at this toy’s accessories and equipment and find out its unlimited creative and educational potential.

A toy kitchen with detailed and realistic appliances and accessories

There is no kitchen without appliances. And our magnificent kitchen toy is certainly no exception. Why waste time washing dishes, cutlery, and pans when you have a dishwasher right under the sink? By internalizing the need to tide up after cooking, your children begin to build a rational and organized mindset that will come in handy in the following years.

And, speaking of essential equipment in the kitchen, let’s have a look at the oven and the cooktop. In addition to the knobs for adjusting the temperature and the desired cooking method, the touch of class is the oven door with a porthole to control bread or pizza. To make the kitchen set even more realistic, the extractor hood with LED light. But there’s more to add to the play experience.

Is there a kitchen without a refrigerator? Of course not, especially it offers convenient storage for milk and eggs cartonsHealthy Proteins of meat and fish, fruit and vegetables. Remember that all Hape food playsets are compatible with each other. Over time, you can enrich the All In One Kitchen with many toy ingredients to make the playing experience even more exciting and realistic.

Finally, the microwave oven makes an authentic ding, and the coffee machine is equipped with cups. The package includes other accessories: a couple of jars with aromatic herbs (matching the dominant colours), two pots, two tea/coffee cups with saucers, a spatula, and a ladle.

Role-playing and pretend play: you learn by cooking

Among the many pretend games that our children can try their hand at, cooking is perhaps one of the most complete and exciting. We will never tire of emphasizing the value of these activities in psycho-emotional development: take a look at the article dealing with the importance of role-playing in children’s development.

Let’s play that I was a cook

A great classic of children’s role-playing games is the interpretation of professional activities. Our little ones spontaneously imitate the teacher, the doctor, or the vet and are incredibly good at creating realistic characters. You may have seen them emulating the carpenter or the policeman, acting like the cook they saw on TV or repeating phrases they have heard from dad, mum, or other grown-ups.

Great observers because of their very nature, children are receptive and capable of creatively reworking the inputs. By engaging in the representation of different roles, they experience many possible identities, re-elaborate events, and revive everyday stories, expressing emotions and fears safely.

Role-play favours the development of empathy, creativity, and problem-solving skills, supporting awareness acquisition of emotions. In the kitchen, kids can take on many characters and personalities. They can play the chef with his assistant or the mother who cooks with the child. As they say in these cases, the only limit is imagination!

Team up today, work well with others tomorrow

Thanks to toys like the All-In-One Kitchen, children can learn to exchange views and share. Together with their siblings, friends, or cousins, children will learn to find creative solutions, setting the stage for the future ability to work as a team with others.

Such an engaging experience improves social abilities, helping to develop language, vocabulary, and expression skills. Thanks to an educational and fun toy like Hape’s Complete Kitchen, children learn that small daily challenges can be faced and overcome together with others.

Solidarity, empathy, complicity, and reciprocity are all big words that express profound notions. Your children may not know how to pronounce or spell them correctly. But, if you give them the opportunity, they will spontaneously demonstrate their practical applications.

A stunning, detailed, and durable playset like the All-in-1 Kitchen will provide hours of fun, learning, and growth for your children. Find out more on our website, and do not miss all the updates on our social media pages.
