Fisher-Price sent over one of their top-selling toys for my kids to fiddle with. It's called the Learning Kitchen, and it's a toy that's suitable for kids up to 3 years old. I had thought that Joey would probably find the toy too childish, but turned out, both girls liked the toy. Must be because of the nice songs it plays.
The Learning Kitchen is entertaining enough. Open the refrigerator door to see the light come on, learn about opposites, or hear a song. Inside the fridge, there's toy food and shape sorting fun for the kids to do. Flip the page on the flip book to hear about foods and learn about shapes and colours. On the other side of the kitchen, the kids can flip the light switch on and off, turn on the faucet, open the oven door, or roll the roller on the clock. A total of more than 15 songs and tunes can be played!
My girls are experts at pretend cooking, so they got right into action with the Learning Kitchen. Putting the frying pan on the stove creates a sound of sizzling hot pan, and pressing the tap will play a nice melody as well.
Review: The Fisher-Price Learning Kitchen is an interactive toy that is more suitable for younger kids. I would recommend it for 6 months- 3 years old because the music and lights would attract their attention more than it would for older children. My six-year-old showed interest in it, most probably because of the novelty. It is too simple a toy to entertain her, or help her in any learning. My three-year-old enjoyed pressing every button and switch to hear what sounds would come out of it, and sang along happily when a familiar song, such as the ABC song, came on. The shape-sorting portion of the toy would help build motor skills for the very young toddlers as well. Overall, a colourful toy that plays lovely music.
