Without a doubt, one of the best gifts ever for a toddler turning two or three is a play kitchen. We haven't met a two-year-old yet who isn't fascinated with the goings-on in the kitchen. If only we could have a little of that enthusiasm when faced with the family meal each day!
Buying for a first child? Make sure you get a unisex kit so it will still suit whichever flavour of sibling comes along next.
We've picked our favourite unisex play kitchens so you have an easy buying guide for birthdays and Christmas gifts - with hours and hours of fun kitchen play ahead!
