Gourmet Kitchen for Kids

Pimp Your Crib: Gourmet Kitchen

My child delights in watching the Food Network almost as much as she takes pleasure in cartoons. She loves to pretend cook — offering me invisible eggs and cereal while saying, "I'm cookin' and eatin'!" If you've got the next Rachael Ray or Bobby Flay whipping up mini creations in your cucina, you might want to consider pampering them with their very own posh appliances.

Shelling out $879 for the entire Gourmet Kitchen Set from Pottery Barn Kids sounds a little nutty, especially during these uncertain economic times. However, the dark brown "woodwork" and the "stainless steel" trimming is enough to make me want it for my own! Parents who dread plastic toys may find this sleek enough for their modern day home. Besides that, if a set like this encourages my wee one to help me out around the kitchen, it may be worth the high ticket price in the end.

I remember how fun it was for me to play restaurant or pretend to cook.. i didn't have the fancy set back then. I would totally buy a set for my daughter, but too bad i don't have the space for the whole set... I will think of a place to put later especially when I have a second one...

I got the blue kitchen set from kids pottery barn 5 years ago. It was about $400. Its still in great condition. I got it for my home daycare and it can really take the kids playing with it. So worth it.

I agree if I had to extra bucks and space for a huge kitchen set like that I would lavish my daughter with it. But her $200 set works just fine for her.

i love this, if I had a child, and was living a comfortable life, I would buy it! My mother always says the toy kitchen she bought me was the best investment she ever made, because it was the only thing I played with! I still have most of it in my garage to pass down to my children one day!
