Wooden Toy Kitchen

This is a post of a toy kitchen I made for my daughter for Christmas and I've previously posted it on my other blog here. So sorry if you've already seen it!

 A simple design with minimal materials needed. Just a sheet of ply, a metal mixing bowl, some hinges and an off cut of perspex. I think the hardest bit was deciding what size to build it - I didn't want it too small, so she grew out of it too soon, but I wanted her to be able to use it straight away.
In the end I got the size just right, with enough storage to house all her toy kitchen bits and bobs.  
 
She loved it when she unwrapped it and started cooking on it straight away - I ate so much toy food and drank that many fake cups of tea I could barely move on Christmas day!
Hope you all had a good Christmas!

    1. I hope so! She loves it so far - everynight I get in from work, she tilts her head to the side and says "tea?" and I go "yes please" and before you now it I'm handed a hot cup of imaginary tea!

    1. You have to have a place for a tea towel! She's a busy little girl and needs all the mod cons!
