Moulin Roty Wooden Stove
Moulin Roty are known for their hard wearing, high quality, traditional wooden toys. This is a beautiful stove packed full of nostalgic charm. It might take you to the pricier end of the market, especially with the sink but for sheer beauty I think it’s worth it.
Accessories not included, measures: 80 x 40 x 30 cm, age 3+.
Brio always deliver funky classic toys at fantastic value. This kitchen is an exceptional example of this and our best budget buy.

Djeco Daisy’s Cooker
Another fab creation from French designers Djeco. Daisy’s Kitchen is a low level sink, stove and oven combo which is petite yet complete. It comes with a lidded pot, frying pan, two utensils, a tea towel and salt & pepper pots. The clock on the back board adds an element not seen on other kitchens. It has been tried and approved by ToddlerGeek herself.
Accessories included, measures 41 x 50 x 29 cm, age 4+.
Country Kitchen Set
This complete kitchen set is for those of you who like to do things properly. As the units are separate you can arrange and rearrange them to suit your play space. The addition of the washing machine completes the kitchen look. Love the red and blue colour combo! By purchasing them as a set you save Â£35 on the total price.
Accessories not included, measures: (sink only) 53 x 43 x 36 cm, age 3+.
Each piece is Â£65 at GLTC
Janod Table Top Cooker
Not all of us have the space for a full on play kitchen so one which folds away is ideal. This Janod cooker has two rings, turning knobs and a utensils rack. When not in use, it folds down and the rack acts as a handle making it easily portable. Best buy for space saving.
Accessories not included, measures: 38.5 x 32.5 x 9.5 cm (when closed), age 3+.
