My girls love pretend play, their imaginations are fantastic and they are always making up different games. They also love to help me cook in the kitchen so I knew they would absolutely love to have a kitchen of their own. We were very lucky to be sent a Little Tikes Cook n Learn Smart Kitchen recently and they adore it – especially Lils who has played with it every day since it arrived.
It comes with lots of accessories, which means they can get playing straight away. The apples and tomatoes stick together with velcro so you can ‘chop’ them and you can ‘cut’ a slice of pie or pizza too. I like the fact that that even though it is a nice compact size, it still has everything you need in a kitchen – a fridge, oven & hob, sink and plenty of worktop space.
The most exciting feature is the fact that you are able to link up the kitchen to an app – how clever is that? The app is free to download and you slot your phone or tablet into the holder and start to play. Something that I am really impressed with is the fact the app recognises different actions you do on the kitchen itself, meaning it is truly interactive. The girls really like that the tap and the hob make noises when turned on – those sounds also work with or without the app which is good.
All in all it is brilliant! I am so impressed with the technology behind it all and I really like the fact that they can learn through play using the different options on the app.
Here is a little video we’ve made so you can see it in more detail…
Isn’t it fab? Little Tikes have got it spot on here and being Little Tikes I know it will last for years!
