Gift Ideas for Girls: Little Tikes Cook ‘n Grow

This post was written by Beth of the Experimental Mommy. While a sample was received to facilitate this review, all opinions remain 100% honest.

With only one shopping day left to the big day, it is decision time. If you are like me you can walk around a store for an hour and have no clue what you are going to get for your spouse, children, parents, etc.

Since I have young children, I always walk through the toy aisle to see what’s new out there. One of the hardest things about buying infant and toddler toys is the fact that they outgrow the toys before they use them.

A couple of years ago for my daughter’s first Christmas, I really wanted to get her a kitchen set. She loves to make tea in the bathtub. I thought the kitchen would be a great gift for her. The only problem was the fact that she was not tall enough to stand and play or crawl up to any of them. I wish I would have known about the Little Tikes Cook ‘n Grow!

The Cook ‘n Grow literally grows with your child. With the two stages of this toy, your child will get plenty of use out of it. When your child is around 1 or so, the Cook ‘n grow adjusts so that it is at the right height for them to be able to play independently. In the second stage of the kitchen, your child will be able to play with the same Cook ‘n Grow. Simply follow the directions and change the layout which in turn adjusts the height. There will be no need to waste your money on another kitchen. Your child will be able to us his/her microwave, oven and refrigerator, just like mom and dad do.

You will have an inspiring little chef with this realistic kid’s kitchen playset that grows with your child. When this Little Tikes kitchen is opened it is the perfect height for toddlers. When the kitchen is compacted it is now the perfect size for your preschooler to cook your dinner. Browse our full Play Kitchen collection for more fun toys.
