I want to get a play kitchen for my DS (aged 3) for Xmas, has anyone got any good recommendations? His dad does all the cooking in the evenings and I think he would enjoy trying to copy him etc. I think that one with some buttons/switches/lights/sounds etc would be the best fun for him (he is autistic and loves pressing buttons, switching switches etc). It would have to be robust as he is a climber and a great tester-to-destruction of anything in any way flimsy! Anyone bought any particularly nice ones?
We love our IKEA kitchen but it only fulfils half of your requirements. We have found it really sturdy and all my DS are climbers and testers-to-destruction and it has so far withstood their rough handling (DS3 loves to stand on the very top giving everybody heart failure!) Unfortunately it is very limited in the buttons/switches/lights/sounds but has got some nice sturdy doors which are often very popular!
