When I was a little girl one of my favorite things to do was play in my little kitchen. It was fully stocked with all the necessary ingredients to feed my dolls, have tea with my mom, make dessert for my dad, or set up a restaurant with my friends. The kitchen provided me with hours of imaginary play where I got lost in my own little world.
This type of play is important to me now as a mom. I want my daughter to have that creativity and imagination. I want her to be able to play by herself, with me, or with friends. I want to see her extend her play skills by involving her dolls, or taking orders for an imaginary cafe. And Guidecraft is a great place to go for that perfect kitchen for your little one.
Guidecraft offers a variety of products from play kitchens to tables and chairs, from toy chests to puppet theaters. Each item is made with high quality materials and built to last. So when I was offered the chance to review one of their new products I was thrilled. I was even more excited when I learned it was a play kitchen... and a space saver.
A best-selling concept - children's dramatic play kitchens - just took a great leap forward with the addition of the Hideaway Playtime and Country Kitchens! In a few simple steps, the Hideaway Kitchen compacts to a depth of 6", allowing it to be efficiently stored when not in use. Offers plenty of features including a sink, a stove; an oven; a dishwasher; functioning knobs, clock and more. Adult assembly required. Ages 3+. 30"W x 15.25"D x 38"H
Does she look thrilled to play in her new kitchen, or what?
This kitchen has been a dream in so many ways. My husband put it together in about an hour. The instructions were clear and he didn't have any trouble. When my daughter woke up from her nap she came down to see this adorable kitchen and immediately started to play with it. Now we have tea and pie almost every night after dinner. She makes applesauce for her babies. Her imagination is growing and I am so excited to watch it and be a part of it.
The coolest feature is that it folds up so flat that you can easily store it away under a bed or behind a door. With a simple unscrewing the entire kitchen folds up, but when it is open it is completely stable and safe. This is perfect for apartments, small houses, or for houses with too much stuff! We leave ours out all the time, but I could see us folding it up this holiday season when the tree comes out and we need some more room. It's an awesome feature!
I would highly recommend that Hideaway Country Kitchen! I would also recommend you check out Guidecraft's site to see all the great products they offer.
