10 Super Cute Wooden Play Food and Cooking Sets to Go With Your Kid’s Wooden Play Kitchen
So you’ve found the wooden play kitchen of your dreams — now it’s time to fill those shelves, ovens, and stovetops with beautiful food, dishes, and cookware, and maybe hang an apron nearby.
I’ve probably thought way too much about play kitchen accessories over the years. I wanted to find items that were colorful, but with safe finishes (but then sometimes you just want natural wood). I wanted durable pieces that would stand up to years of play, and fun pieces that encouraged my daughter to think about food: How do we put a meal together? How many different types of produce can I find? What are some of my favorite things to eat or things I want to try?
The result is this guide to some of my favorite brands and products for both natural wood and painted play food, toy appliances, toy cookware, even miniature-sized aprons. If you like a particular look, be sure to check out the rest of the brand’s offerings — it was so hard to choose just one!
A note on soft food: This guide focuses on play kitchen food, which is generally made for ages 3 and up. While you can certainly buy and use much of this for younger kids at your discretion, you might want to consider soft food at first — especially to avoid bite marks!
