Kids’ Play Kitchens

Being a kid is all about playing, pretending and having fun, but it’s also about learning important skills as you grow up. Toys like kids’ play kitchens provide children with the opportunity to do both at the same time. Suitable for any gender and a variety of ages, play kitchens can be an important part of child development. They teach skills ranging from counting to organization, and kids who share them with siblings and playmates often develop important social skills too. Best of all, adding one to your child’s playroom or bedroom can lead to hours of fun, entertainment and memories that will last for years to come. It’s a childhood staple.

At Pottery Barn Kids, we offer a variety of kids’ play kitchens in different styles and colors. You’ll find neutral colors like white and gray that match practically any decor to more vibrant colors like aqua and pink that your kids will fall in love with. Styles might include retro or farmhouse. Whichever one you choose, be prepared to be amazed at just how much they look like the real thing. Most of our adorable play kitchens are suitable for ages 3 and up, and they are made from quality products, including birchwood, oak, nickel and stainless-steel. Each one also features a finish that is resistant to chipping, fading or scratching, and some are even moisture-resistant. Some assembly may be required, depending on what you purchase.

Select from all-in-one play kitchens, which means all the appliances are attached into one single piece, or mix and match pieces from various collections. The all-in-one kitchens typically include features like a refrigerator, a stove, a sink, a pot rack, an oven and shelves or cabinets for storage. When you purchase pieces separately, look for individual refrigerators, stoves with ovens and sinks with counter space or storage below them.

Many of our kitchens also include extra features to make them as realistic as possible. Turn the metal knobs for the stove burners and hear a clicking sound, or fill the sinks with water so your kids can get some practice washing dishes. Adjust your shelving or set the real ticking timers. Set the thermometer on the fridge or get those salt and pepper shakers ready for dinner.

While your kids fall in love with their new toys, you can fall in love with just how easy our play kitchens are to clean. We suggest dusting them with a soft, dry cloth and blotting any spills. You will never have to use harsh chemicals or cleaners on our play kitchens, which means keeping a safe and healthy play environment for your family. If you choose to use water in the sinks, rest assured that the sinks are removable for dumping old water and easy cleaning.

Just imagine the look on your child’s face when he or she wakes up on Christmas morning or unwraps gifts at a birthday party and finds a kitchen to call his or her own. Smiles all around! To make the newest addition to your child’s toy collection even more exciting, considering pairing it with some of our food and kitchen-themed toys. We offer aprons in child sizes, as well as pretend grocery baskets, kitchen appliances, pots and pans, bakeware and dishware. From milk and eggs to pizza and pasta, we also offer a variety of play food made from wood and cloth. You may have just as much fun as the kids do picking and choosing and putting it all together. And who knows? You may just end up with a budding young chef or baker on your hands.
