Modern Kitchen Playsets for Kids

Children’s Kitchen

If you were like me, lucky enough to have your parents get you your very own kitchen playset when you were a child, then you know where I’m coming from with this post. These are essential to any child’s ‘house’ setup. I can still remember the thrill of pretending to bake cupcakes and boil water for tea on the stovetop; just like the grownups!

I was lucky enough to have my dad build my play kitchen from scratch, he was always building us toys whenever he could find the time.

If you landed on this post then you are most likely a cute and caring parent who just wants the best toys for their kids to learn from, but what about yourself!? Isn’t it time you remodelled your own kitchen!! : )

Have a closer look at some of the wonderful kitchen play sets, designed just for the kids!

Adorable Baby’s Room Decorating Ideas

Nursery Decorating Ideas | Bedrooms

New mothers to be, know there is more to a nursery than just sticking a crib in the corner. Mothers to be usually choose baby bedroom décor ideas that are very contemporary in style.

Choosing colors is the first part of preparing the nursery. Color is important and not always baby blue or pink. Once a color is chosen, and the painting is complete, the parents will decide on the perfect crib, changing table, and decorations to make the nursery fantastic. Some people look in areas such as thrift stores and consignment shops for items for their nurseries. Babies grow so fast, that the items in thrift stores or consignment shops are practically brand new. Contemporary style items are usually found in baby supply stores and furniture stores.

Our Favorite Vintage 80’s Children’s Toys

Man Hand Held Arcade Style

Vintage children’s toys are a powerful, eclectic and inexpensive way to evoke the innocence of childhood and the joys of days gone by.
