Learning Resources Pretend And Play Kitchen Set
Cook up a culinary cuisine of fun while indulging in rich language opportunities. This super-sized set provides all the kitchen essentials to help children fill the role of master chef while developing confidence and a strong sense of self. There are enough accessories to invite a friend over to serve as sous chef to add social interaction, negotiation, and sharing into play. The familiar cooking theme helps children develop pretend play skills and serves well to introduce new vocabulary. Cookware is just the right size for children to manage and the handles on the utensils give a good base for grasping, stirring, and serving.
By using the different utensils like the masher, ice cream scoop, or ladle, children strengthen different movements and muscles in their hands and arms needed for independence and daily living. Service for four lets children match, sort, and count while setting the table for real or imaginary friends. This bright, primary-colored set is made of plastic and can be washed with soap and water –extending the play to cleaning up while learning real responsibilities in the kitchen. It even includes a dish pan strainer for drip drying your dishes. For ages 3+.

I purchased the 73 piece kitchen set from Learning Resources along with the 80 piece play food set from Learning Resources. This was to go with a KidKraft Deluxe Kitchen that Amazon had discounted down considerably. The giftee is a two-year old boy.
As others have noted, the colors of the kitchen set are extremely vibrant, the plastic is not so thick to be chunky, and it looks pretty durable. It's an extremely cute, little kitchen set.
The only thing that shocked me was the sizing scale used for the different pieces. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to it. For example:
- The ice cream scooper and dessert dishes were a decent enough size that we could use them for every day use. They are probably correct portion size for adults.
- The old-school juicer looks to be large and durable enough that an adult could also use it with small-to-medium oranges.
- The largest plate was smaller than the palm of my hand (guessing 2").
- The water pitcher is micro-sized comparatively and looks like it can hold 2 oz
If you get the Learning Resources play food set to go with it, you'll discover that you can't actually put most of the food on the plates or in the pots. The hotdog, hamburger and pizza all seemed to take up at least 2-3 dinner plates from the kitchen set. The fake spaghetti was big enough that it didn't fit in my smallest saucepan, let alone my son's kitchen set.
As for quality, I am impressed with this product. Although plastic, it does seem sturdy. My daughter's only had it for about 3 weeks, but she's rough on her toys, and so far so good with this one.
I had initially wanted realistic colored (e.g. stainless steel) pots & pans, since my daughter loves to watch me cook with our pots & pans. But the colors of this product are all primary and vibrant, which are more appealing to our tot. We love watching her take the pots and pans and "cook" pretend food, then serve them on her plates with utensils. She loves these toys. For some reason, she's become attached to the cookie dough roller and loves to roll pretend dough on our floor.
There's just so much variety to this product. It definitely keeps her busy and she's discovering new accessories all the time. Oh, there's also a plate stand, so your child can "wash & dry" their dishes and load them onto the stand. For the money, you get alot of bang for the buck.
While there are plenty of pieces in this kit, I don't know if it's worth buying the kit itself. For my own kids, I bought the pots and pans set separately, and it's great. I knew, though, that my brother and his wife had not bought their kids any dishes yet, so I wanted to get them both food and dishes at the same time.
As others have said, the plates are extremely small! I really don't understand the point of them. The timer was also not very good quality and was hard for the kids to use. I also didn't like that there are mugs, but no normal cups. I guess I think of mugs as something you drink coffee or other hot drinks out of, and regular cups are for juice or milk. I sat in their play room and played with them after the packages came, and they were super excited. I could tell, though, that the plates weren't really going to work. They'd take the learning resources food (great stuff, by the way), and put it on these dinky plates, and the food would be literally bigger than the plate!
What I did at my own home was go to the dollar store and buy cheap plastic plates, cups, and bowls (not the disposable kind, more like the kind for picnics.) I also bought a ketchup and mustard bottle, salt & pepper shaker, and any other various kitchen stuff that looked appropriate.Read more ›
