My son loves to play with pretend food and role play like a grown-up. When I told him that he was going to get to test out the Little Tikes Cook ‘n Store Kitchen, he couldn’t wait.
He was so excited that he asked if the “box truck” was bringing his toy kitchen every day until it arrived.
When it finally arrived he could barely contain himself, but did this kitchen live up to his expectations?
About the Little Tikes Cook ‘n Store Kitchen
The Little Tikes Cook ‘n Store Kitchen comes fully assembled which is amazing. My least favorite thing about Christmas morning is untying all of those little twist ties and then having to put a bunch of toys together, so this would be a great idea for Christmas morning.
All you do is simply pull it out of the box, and voila! Let the little ones play while you get busy putting everything else together.
It is so compact that we were able to easily bring it from the basement playroom outside for pictures, then back down to the basement again. The entire kitchen set weighs just ten pounds.
This kitchen is unique in that it folds up so it’s compact, lightweight, and easy to store. This is perfect for those who don’t have the room for a whole kitchen set.
You can fold it and keep it in a storage closet or in the corner of the room and open it up when your child wants to play with it. It takes about a minute to open and close.
The Cook ‘n Store Kitchen has a double oven, lazy susan, refrigerator, sink, dish drainer, countertop, microwave, dishes, and cookware. How great is that for such a small set?
Our Thoughts On The Cook ‘N Store Kitchen
The Little Tikes website says this toy is good for kids 18+ months and Amazon lists it as being good for kids 24 months to 8 years.
In my opinion, I would say that it is perfect for kids 18/24 months to 4/5 years. Dub will be five in November and he is definitely at the higher end of the age range.
He enjoys playing with it and pretending, but in order to keep this kitchen compact, it is on the small side so taller/older kids might have a hard time playing with it. It’s the perfect size for toddlers and preschoolers who might find a standard kitchen to be a bit too big.
Since this kitchen is made to be portable and easy to store, it isn’t built quite as solid as some other kitchens might be, but that’s not a negative by any means.
Given the nature of this kitchen, it’s great because it makes it very light and easy to move from room to room, which is the point. As I mentioned above, it weighs only about ten pounds so even bringing it for a weekend at the grandparents’ house would be easy.
Dub has been having a lot of fun with this play kitchen and he especially loves playing with the sink and lazy susan. I would definitely recommend this for those with toddlers and limited space.
This is such a nice looking toy kitchen for kids and I love that it comes fully assembled. I know that my niece would absolutely love playing with this kitchen.
So cute and would entertain a child for hours and hours
I’m sure my kids would have hours of fun with this kitchen! I love toys that foster imaginative and pretend play.
My daughter has been eyeing the kitchens for my grandson – I really like the looks of this one. I’ll be sure to let her know – the fact that her house is not exactly large makes the compact size ideal.
This is cool! I love that it comes fully assembled and it folds up. We’ve been looking for a play kitchen for my son. This seems like a great one!
I love it! Little Tikes has done it again! I love their products. I like the way this will fold up for storage. Would be great for the grandchildren at Nana’s house!
I love the purple one! My daughter would love this! She loves helping me in the kitchen.
I know a couple kids who would absolutely love the Little Tikes Kitchen! I like that it can be folded for easy moving and it comes in a great selection of colors! 😀
This sounds great! I love the attention to detail and a name we can trust.
I LOVE this! I especially love that it’s already assembled… I despise having to put things together and usually do a miserable job. And the fact that I can store it away and it won’t take up space is awesome.
I really like this!! It doesn’t seem as bulky as most toy kitchens!
This is such a cute kitchen! Little Tikes toys are durable and last for such a long time, and the size is perfect for toddlers. Love the purple set, so cute…
This is such a cool toy! I love how many activities it provides and that either sex can learn from it. Thank-you for the review. 🙂
How perfect for apartment life. I love how it encourages children to be tidy and store their toys away.
How great that it come assembled I know it frustrates me and my kids when I have to put stuff together and then they have to wait to play
Both of my boys would love to play with this together! I love that it is lightweight and compact. We don’t have a lot of space inside. Which also makes it great that it can easily be moved outside for play. Thank you for the chance.
I love that this is a compact kitchen!! My son has one now that is just so huge and takes p way to much space!! I also love that its super light and portable!! Would be great for at grandmas!!
I love the Little tikes company these toy can last for generations really my grandson has things that my children played with . I love that this is so compact and comes already put together
I love this little kitchen, my grandchildren would have a great time playing with this!
i love that its so compact yet has all a kid needs in a toy kitchen- and no assembly is awesome!
Wow I love that it comes fully assembled!!! My grandsons would enjoy this kitchen!
I think having it lightweight can really be a plus for moving from room to room when they want it. Like little ones can cook just like mom or dad
