The Most Adventurous Girl & Boy Play Kitchens IN THIS ARTICLE


Maybe your kid loves going on wild camping trips to the backyard or barbequing for friends. Hands-on, no screen time. Maybe you wanna prepare your child to be a fully independent adult, who can cook for himself, be a good partner or parent. That’s the awesomeness of open-end toys like play kitchens! Kids can turn their playroom into whatever adventure their creativity is capable of. And imagination blooms in the children naturally, no matter if it’s a boy or a girl. So, for this post, I only chose gender-neutral kitchen sets, colorful play food, and fun kitchen accessories!

When we look for open-ended toys, the idea is to expand the kid’s possibilities, right? So why give it a “closed-start” by limiting the kid’s imagination to gender stereotypes? Why do we see a sweet pink play kitchen as being for girls and a fun adventurous BBQ grill as being for boys? The title of this post is for boy play kitchen because that’s actually how thousands of people look for play kitchens. And we are so used to boys things and girls things. Well, we believe that toys are genderless and all the kitchen sets in this post, just like the “girly” play kitchens, non-toxic wood play kitchens, and chic white play kitchens we posted so far, are for any child who loves them! The idea is to suggest an “open-start” for ourselves, no judging, no limiting, just love!

Dimensions: 37.08″ L x 11.82″ W x 38.02″ H

If the family has a green thumb or is trying to, this mini farmhouse kitchen has its own plant box with veggies. From an early age, they can learn that the food doesn’t come naturally in packages!

The playset is super interactive. The faucet makes water sound, which can inspire the habit of washing hands! The cooktop lights up and the fridge door makes pretend ice cubes. I really like all the storage space, but this kitchen has me on how easy it is to look at!
