From the irresistible smells that waft from the oven to the delicious meals that originate there every night, the kitchen is one of the most popular rooms in the house. With the New Sprouts Chef Set* from Learning Resources, kids prepare for experiences in the actual kitchen with pretend versions of popular cooking tools. After donning their colorful toddler-sized apron and oven mitt, little chefs set about preparing the imaginary eats with plastic accessories including a chunky spatula and spoon. On their own, these interactive accessories help teach kids lessons in social and imaginative skills, as well as introduce language and vocabulary concepts at the core of cooking and kitchen life. They also pair well with existing toys and playsets, and integrate seamlessly with Learning Resources’ other play foods and kitchen sets. Best of all: thanks to their durable, easy-to-clean plastic construction, they’re easy to clean and store when playtime is over. Four-piece set includes an apron, oven mitt, spoon, and spatula. Apron measures 13.5”L x 18¼”H. Ages 2+.
