For children, there is just something really exciting and fun about certain activities. Working in the kitchen is definitely one of them. Kids love to pretend-cook and bake along-side Mom, Dad, or Grandma; and everyone knows, they can make far better four-course meals and pretend-cake than any adult. All they need is the proper setup.
Kids’ kitchens are a magically good time for boys and girls alike. If you can request it, they can cook it up – when working with a good kitchen, of course. In helping you to help them to concoct the most creative culinary cuisine, we review this year’s top ten kitchen sets for kids.
1. KidKraft Vintage Kitchen
KidKraft has certainly become a master of play kitchen sets over the years, and this is a great example. The KidKraft Vintage Kitchen has a little bit of everything.

This top-performing blue set is also notably sturdy, so it’s ready for all the action.
