What fun it is for toddlers and pre-schoolers to pretend cook on their toy kitchen sets. We like the wooden kitchen centers by Plan Toys as they are durable, eco-friendly and will become heirloom toys that can be passed down to future generations. They also are great looking - they fit in nicely within your home and you won't want to hide it down in the basement or in a distant corner. I put our kitchen toys in our kitchen so my kids would cook along with me at dinner time - it was alot of fun - for both of us.
The Kitchen Center by PlanToys is an all in one set with turning knobs, storage area, oven, sink, dish washing unit, and utensil holder. It is a two-sided center that provides realistic play for your kids. One side is meant for cooking while the other side is for cleaning up. Your kids can role play - whatever their imaginations can create. It encourages social interaction when playing in pairs or groups. Kitchen functions are also introduced to kids which helps them later on when you introduce them to cooking in a real kitchen.
So cook up some fun with kitchen toys - see our selection at

Another fabulous line from Jellycat - new in 2015. The Squiggles - Bunny, Puppy and Kitty - like to dance and probably would sing if they could. They may only stand 9" tall, but they are adorable. I love the "just got out of bed" look with their wild fur. It is still very soft [...]
Jungle Joshua Giraffe by Zubels is a handknit doll of 100% cotton - an eco-friendly toy that is not only non-toxic but darn cute. He doesn't have the long neck that we know giraffes to have, but he makes up for it in personality. He is quite a character and they say that Jungle Joshua [...]

We affectionately nicknamed our second son chunky monkey as it suited him perfectly. Jellycat's new Monty Monkey soother reminds of his infant years and know that he would have loved this. It is incredibly soft and so smooth - it surely would have comforted him during those trying times. A quality made baby cozy that [...]
Orange and cream all over, this gentle giant just like to chime away. Jellycat Chime Chums Giraffe is an 11" baby chime toy that is soothing to the ears. Ribbon tabs in orange and cream stick up all the way down his long neck to give him a wonderful mane to show off. Some baby [...]
