Best Play Kitchen Accessories

Every kitchen, including pretend ones, needs cookware and dish sets in order to fulfill its function. If your child’s play kitchen didn’t come with accessories, or if you just want to buy more (we don’t blame you for this addiction), here are our favorite additions to culinary playtime.

Just Like the Real Thing

Does your toddler prefer the sound of banging on stainless steel pots and pans? Get them a set of their very own (so you can get yours back). This cookware set looks just like the real thing in miniature, adding an extra lifelike element to playing chef. And everything stays perfectly organized with the included rack.

Child Guidelines Ages 3–8 years
Includes 8 pieces: colander, pot w/ lid, 2 pans, 2 wooden utensils, rack

Solid Wood Set

If natural cookware is more your kid’s style, these solid-wood accessories are sure to please. Neutrally colored with certified child-safe paint, this set is proven to be sturdy and will hold up to the most vigorous stirring. Keep in mind: the pot and pan are smaller than most sets, and won’t hold much play food.

Child Guidelines Ages 3 years+
Includes 13 pieces: 2 plates, 2 forks, 2 knives, 2 large utensils, pan, pot w/ lid, salt & pepper shakers

Serves Four

Dinner party, anyone? With four complete dishware sets, your toddler can invite all their friends (real or imaginary) for a nice home-cooked meal. Each piece is plastic, so it’s super easy to clean, and the colors stay bright and cheerful (though the set is also available in a gorgeous pastel).

Child Guidelines Ages 18 months+
Includes 27 pieces: 4 plates, 4 bowls, 4 cups, 4 forks, 4 spoons, 4 knives, pan, pot w/ lid

*Green* Tea Time

Like all Green Toys products, this tea set is made from 100% recycled plastic. It’s BPA-, PVC- and phthalate-free, so it’s totally safe for your toddler to drink out of (in case they get tired of just pretending).

Child Guidelines Ages 2 years+
Includes 17 pieces: tea pot w/ lid, sugar bowl w/ lid, creamer, 4 cups, 4 saucers, 4 spoons

For the Connoisseur

It’s safe to say that most play kitchen sets don’t come with these awesome extras. Set your youngster up for culinary success with accessories necessary for any aspiring chef: stand mixer, toaster, waffle iron, baking set and, of course, pots and pans—and the added bonus that they all match. The pots and pans and bakeware set also come in chrome (as well as a blender, hand mixer and tea kettle). There’s even a slow cooker (complete with six veggies) that makes boiling sounds when turned on. How cool (hot) is that?
