play kitchens? buddhababy 1 child; Spain 378 posts

We're looking to invest in a good wooden play kitchen set for my son's birthday. I know he won't be able to do much with it yet but I like that it will grow with him. Preferably we want something without batteries (no irritating noises, please!). Any suggestions? Something like one of these...

I like it too, it's uncluttered and clean looking.

I like the 2nd one. Ikea stuff you always have to assemble it all yourself and it is cheaply made imo.

I like the Ikea one. My grandpa made me a set when I was 5, my DD got it last year for her birthday (my dad had to redo the stove, she got the original fridge)

I like the looks of the ikea one the best. But IMO Ikea products don't holdup to the test of time.

We got DD the Ikea one for her birthday last month, she loves it and it's very sturdy and nice looking.

90% of the furniture in my house is from ikea, it's all really well made and we are very hard on it.

Same here. I've had my couch since 2005 and it still looks pretty much brand new.
