So we've decided to get our 19month old (at xmas) a toy kitchen. I would like to get somthing well built that will last (wooden). Somthing that has a bit of work space to put toaster/kettle on.
I've looked at what I feel is hundreds. And now I have gotten twitchy about it.
So I thought I would ask the wonderful people of mumsnet for recommendations!

My favourite is the ikea one. Have a look on pinterest for inspiration of how to personalise it smile

We have a lovely red wooden one from great little trading. Bought when my ds1 was 2 and still going strong now he's 10 and dd is 3. Played with almost daily.

I got a lovely one from elc. It was reduced a lot around the October half term I think so was half price a few years ago. It's lasted really well. My friend got one from gltc which is amazing.

Also love the Ikea one. It's been played with almost every day for the best part of 4 years by DS1 and now DS2 is getting in on the action. Still in great condition.

Thanks allsmile will have a look at all mentioned.

Another vote for the ikea one. Plus it has feet that you can swap round to make it taller/shorter.

We've got the asda one. Some reviews call it flimsy but ours has been played with every day for 2 years by 2 children and is still in great condition.

One piece of advice; don't buy it early and then leave it in the garage and have to put it together on Christmas Eve having drunk a bottle of champagne blush

Asda one fell apart very dangerously immediately.

Glad you started this OP. We too are looking for a wooden kitchen. I've seen the ikea one and it looks lovely

I got the tildo country kitchen for my boy aged 2 and it's still going strong over 2 years later and lots of abuse.

We have this one from Asda

DC love it & only £40.

FurryTrousers Wed 31-Aug-16 16:17:26

Ps. We have 3 DC, so used often, it's nearly a year old and still absolutely fine

IKEA one is superb. Have a look on Pinterest for IKEA you kitchen hacks. They are amazing!

Wooden diner kitchen from ELC- £150 down to £75 quite often. It's lovely but took a bit of putting together so don't leave it until Chtistmas Eve!

I second great little trading one. It's lovely. If I hadn't bought that it would have been the IKEA one.

Kit2015 Wed 31-Aug-16 16:21:51

The ikea one looks lovely and looks like you can jazz it up.
Love the recommendations. It's nice too see what people think as I think it will be somthing that will be used for years and future kids smile

Had also had GLTC 7 years

I now want that plum one which is stupid as DS is 4 and into Star Wars, transformers and Thunderbirds sad

Kit2015 Wed 31-Aug-16 16:25:08

That plum one is lovely... I do think think my budget will stretch that far. Was think 150 at a plush if there was a all singing all dancing one.

We got a Kidkraft one from Amazon last year. It's been played with every day and is fantastic quality. Did take dh 4 hours to assemble on Xmas eve though...

HungryHorace Wed 31-Aug-16 19:19:27

The Melissa and Doug one is lovely. I got ours 2 years' ago during Amazon's Black Friday and hoarded it for 8 months until my DD's 2nd birthday. Her and DS both love it and I add to it with food stuffs every birthday / Christmas!
