Toy Kitchen Play Sets
Toy Play Kitchens Is your young one a budding top chef? These miniature kitchen sets from Hip Kids are perfect...
Enhancing visual development
Playing with toys sets requires that a child identifies different components of the set, and recognises where it will fit. This helps develop the visual ability to tell apart shapes and colours. The child will also learn the names of the shapes and colours when you interact with him/her.
Develops language and communication skills
Children learn language through imitation picked up in different interactions. Children playing with older children or adults will pick names and pronunciations during play. They also develop a sense of verbs and nouns and how to use them.
Engaging in play also develops a child’s ability to communicate effectively. The child can recognise elements of communication such as questions, answers, exclamations, commands, requests and so on.
Developing numeracy skills
Role-playing with a toy kitchen will require that a child does the counting of different ingredients, utensils and other toy items. This develops the child’s ability to count numbers.
Developing motor skills and dexterity
Young children develop motor skills by learning to grip, hold and balance different items. Working with toy items teaches them how to work with their hands better. Kitchen sets will need arranging and rearranging small items on small spaces where delicate balancing will be required. This further helps a child refine his/her hand dexterity. Your child will be able to remove and place items with ease as time goes.
Develop spatial awareness
Spatial awareness is the recognition of an object’s place in a physical space, including the kid herself. Placing different items such that they fit will teach the child the concept of space sharing. If the child is playing with others, she will learn how people make and share space when nearby.
Allowing a child to feel in charge helps her start developing decision-making abilities. She will be answering questions like, what is on the menu today? Is the food to be baked or fried? These roles build self-confidence that goes into other spheres of life.
Kitchen sets are not for girls only. Boys can play kitchen games as well because they are entirely representative of what is possible in the career world. There are many kitchen themed TV shows with men working in them. It is OK for a boy child to want to be like them.
These toys are painted with lead-free, non-toxic paint. They do not have sharp corners and any nooks that can trap a child’s clothing.
