At 3, Cakes is really starting to delve head first into imaginative play. But that doesn't mean it isn't fun to have some props to set the scene and provide a more authentic feel to the fantasy being acted out. For the last few weeks she has been enjoying a very exciting addition to play time with the Step2 Creative Cooks Kitchen.
The Step2 Creative Cooks Kitchen is a new product for fall 2012 and is sold exclusively at Toys R Us. This bright and colorful play kitchen is perfect for encouraging kids to delve into creative, imaginative play that mimics real life situations.
Everything your child needs to get started playing in their new play space is included in the box. There's a lot of detail packed into this kitchen too! No detail was spared in making this a unique and realistic space for kids. From the electronic stove that lights up and makes noises to simulate boiling water and microwave to the spinning spice rack and coffee pot. You can not only interact by pretending to prepare food but can also reinforce other behaviors from your own kitchen such as feeding and watering the dogs using the pet center and placing things into the recycling bin.
If you're looking for a product that can grow with your child, encourages creative play, and is suitable for multiple children of either gender, then look no further than the Step2 Creative Cooks Kitchen. I can't tell you how many countless hours Cakes has been spent playing with her new kitchen. It's the first thing she shows guests when they come over and will use any excuse to play with her new toy just a few minutes longer.
