A few fun facts readers might not know include: Atticmag originated when Jane assembled an online look-book of inspiration photos called Kitchens We Love. Jane and I met via an online kitchen forum in 2008 when she emailed to asked about featuring my French Gray Island Kitchen. Lastly, according to my darling grandson (DGS), the road to becoming TKO (totally kitchen obsessed) can start with play kitchens at a very young age.
My youngest daughter recently purchased a blue KidKraft vintage kitchen for DGS (hard at work, above) since he is always “helping” her prepare meals. The retro style kitchen includes a microwave, refrigerator and oven with turn and click knobs. DGS not only pretends to cook, but washes his hands in the sink and chats with everyone who’s anyone on the cordless phone. The sturdy play set also comes in white, red, pink and bubble gum pink. The detailed step-by-step directions were easy to follow, taking DD2 two hours to assemble.
The multicolor Master Cook’s Kitchen is also by KidKraft.
DSG’s mama bought the Melissa and Doug Food Group Set featuring a large assortment of painted wooden play foods. Children can use them to learn colors and healthy eating habits since the set contains items from each of the five food groups. The Green Toys Chef Set contains a stock pot with lid, skillet, ladle and spatula made from BPA free 100% recycled from plastic milk containers. Toys that promote creativity and skills help children explore a world limited only by their imagination.
