The best toy we ever invested in for our kids was definitely a play kitchen. Between the kids, we easily got close to 10 years of play out of it and it’s actually still stored in our basement.
Before we bought the fancy play kitchen we still have, a friend passed down a smaller, toddler-sized kitchen that was also well loved by my kids. The new Little Tikes First Fridge and various appliances remind me so much of that set!
These realistic looking play appliances are a great choice for the youngest children.
The refrigerator has all the features of a real fridge–a working “ice” dispenser, dual French doors, a separate freezer drawer, and working fridge lights. There are pretend magnet clips to hang artwork, just like on your refrigerator.
The Little Tikes First Fridge has sounds to stimulate imaginative play–crushed ice, water dispensing, beeps, and more. Press the included cup to the ice maker. Plastic ice drops into the cup and sounds just like the real fridge.
The set also comes with accessories to start a play kitchen set. There’s an ice tray, four clear plastic ice cubes, and a glass to use, plus an orange, milk, ketchup, and ice cream for play. You can add all sorts of fun food items to fill out the kitchen.
The new Little Tikes First Fridge is currently available at Walmart.com for $49.99. An oven, sink, and washing machine are also available for a complete set.
