How it works

All kids love to be included in our grown up cooking activities to satisfy their natural curiosity. Unfortunately, we are not able to have them indulged in such activities because we often work with sharp and dangerous cutlery, high temperatures, etc. We all remember how we played when we were kids while watching our parents cook. We would usually put on our mother’s apron and pretend we are cooking or making some tea and the food will later be served to our caregivers or our favorite stuffed animals and dolls. This kind of pretend game is the greatest source of joy for any kids and it is never out of date. There are many products on the market to keep your kids busy with such role-play activities. One of the highest quality and extra safe toy for your kids is the Super Chef Kitchen made by one of the greatest manufacturers of kids toys Little Tikes. There are a lot of ways to have your kids playing pretend cooking, you only need some time and fantasy. This play kitchen will become the most popular resource for pretend play as it will also give your kids the opportunity to be the actors in situations that they are familiar with. Whether it is the role of a head chef, server, coffee attendant or mom/dad at home, this play kitchen allows kids to escape the boring reality, change their roles, practice some new skills and cook up very exciting meals.

Origin

Origin

The company named Little Tikes was founded back in 1970 in Hudson, Ohio. This American based company for manufacturing kids toys is a high-quality toy company and a multi-national manufacturer, producing innovative kids products for over 48 years. Little Tikes are the pioneers of rotational molding when it comes to producing toys. They maintain brand loyalty through safe, durable, interactive and creative play. They are well known for their playhouses, ride-on cars, sports, sandboxes, climbers and slides, active plays for kids, role-play, creative arts, preschool, and juvenile furniture. What is important to mention is that Little Tikes was the first company for the production of toys to offer on-site kids care center for employees' kids which will also serve as a test center during product development, so each product is well tested before it is placed on the market. Out of their products we can come to the conclusion that their goal is to create and supply meaningful and imaginative products to customers and consumers around the world. Their products are mostly low-tech plastic toys aimed primarily for kids up to 6 years old, for indoor and outdoor use, such as the super Chef Kitchen which is a great product of this company aimed for kids at the age of 3, which helps kids to use their imagination while they play.
Entertainment Value

Entertainment Value

This kitchen set has a little cupboard with little shells that kids can use to put some props there. The three most important features are the microwave, the oven, and the refrigerator. They all come with three separate doors that need to be installed. The microwave comes with a hob which makes realistic noises when turned on. The oven also has a switching button with a pleasant clicking sound. The fridge is with a little ice cool at the front and it provides additional room inside. It would be extra fun if you get additional food items to play with and put them inside out, serve them and play around. It includes fourteen accessories. One is the coffee pot. We cannot say kids are not tempted to look inside our coffee mug every morning, here is their chance to be part of the grown-up world. There are also 2 plates, 2 spoons, 2 forks, 2 knives, and 2 cups. Serving the food can be their favorite part of the game. There is one frying pan which can be used with some food toy items to pretend they are frying something. It is extra fun because the burner has two separate sounds for frying and boiling, which keeps kids attention for a very long time. The phone is probably the most interesting accessory. It’s got a rail to put a tea towel on so you can just pick one of your tea towels and pop it on there. Another important feature is the sink with a little tap where they can do the washing up and they can put the towel to dry the things on.
Maintenance

Maintenance

This kitchen is simply adorable! It is easy to put the parts together! The only tool you need is a screwdriver. First, you need to do is Install the Cabinet Handle and make sure it is put to the end, then install the doors. The three doors are from the microwave, the refrigerator, and oven. Then assemble vent hood, screw in vent hood, then install the batteries, install the faucet and sound effects knob. Install towel rod, kitchen feet, and clicker, you may need to use a little soap as a lubricant to help install the kitchen feet. Then you should install the countertop, the dishwasher is the most important part here. Screw into this plastic feature in the countertop, install the burner, you should press it very hard to make sure it clicks, then install an upper kitchen to the countertop. Assemble components and apply decals.

As kids enjoy such games of role-playing, whoever is playing with them would usually be assigned a role. It would probably seem boring for a grown-up person to be part of play game with a plastic kitchen playset. But the benefits of such games that can bring about development of some very important skills will definitely change your mind. It brings about development of their compassion for other persons. When you play roles you have to imagine that you are someone else and assume how it would look like to cook for your mom, dad, sister, teacher, puppy...These new temporary feelings will help your kids gain some experience, but they will also bring about the normal relations in everyday life. With their new roles only sky is the limit. Their world is much more than their small rooms. They will very soon discover they have many dreams and ambitions and their lives are full of opportunities. By playing these games of imitation they often use words which are not usual for their everyday life. When you pretend you are a chef you will definitely learn the word “cutlery”, “Frying pan”, you will learn the difference between boiling, frying, baking… So it is definitely useful for development of their language skills and improving their vocabulary. It also brings about improving communication skills, because the kids are out of their comfort zone, by pretending to be someone else. So this toy can help kids who usually have problems in communication by providing them the freedom they need to experiment and discover new ways of communicating with their playmates.

Price Range

All kids enjoy playing with multifunctional toys and this one does come with a couple of items. Many parents would immediately notice they need to purchase some add-ons in order to keep them busy in the kitchen. These extras such as plastic fruit and veggies can be found in any toy shop at a ridiculously low price, but the best way to get imaginary food supplements is to actually make it together with your kids. Just grab a piece of paper and draw some veggies and fruit and just take them out using scissors and it would be extra fun for both kids and parents.
