You’ve got everything you need in this play kitchen, complete with fridge, microwave, stove, oven, sink and even a chalkboard for your grocery list. There’s lots of storage for all your play food and dishes and even a cordless phone. The fridge has a working ice maker—sure to delight, but perhaps my favorite feature, other than the fabulous vintage look, is the removable sink.

12 / 15

There is so much to love about this child size table—first, it’s beautiful, the sort of thing that’s perfect for the playroom, but that you wouldn’t hate in a space where you host guests. Beyond that, it’s designed as a multi-sensory experience, it includes a brick skin for Duplo and LEGO, a dry erase surface, and 2 organizer pouches to make storage and cleanup a breeze. Put on the lid to keep everything out of sight. This is the perfect spot for all of your child’s creative endeavors.
