For Asher’s 2nd birthday, I had decided to get him a kitchen set. I was obsessed with Junior Master Chef and I think little kids look so damn cute when they cook. But Asher was too young to try cooking so I thought why not let him start by pretending to do so first. Anyway, kitchen sets make great accessories for role-playing and letting kids get creative with their imagination.
I must admit that the kitchen corner has replaced our reading nook as my favorite section in the house. It would have been gentler on the pocket if I could build a DIY kitchen set toy like the one from the Ikea Hackers site.
