The Recipe for Success: Play Kitchens and Kitchen Accessories

The term "play kitchen" results in millions of results on search engines – today, there are play kitchens in all sorts of shapes and sizes, crossing the entire spectrum of colours, with nostalgic or modern designs, and made of plastic or wood. But what makes the perfect play kitchen? What are kids looking for in them, and what are parents paying especially close attention to for the purchase decision?

The answers lie in the new "tasty" Compact Play Kitchen from small foot!

As a Category Champion, end customer demands stood as the main focus during the development process: a durable wooden play kitchen in a compact format with carefully chosen functions that don't overwhelm children, and all that at a great, reasonable price-performance ratio.

Cooking, baking, savoring – The trending themes of today

It doesn't matter if you're experimenting with exotic ingredients or trying your hand at Grandma's old apple strudel recipe – being creative in the kitchen is totally trendy right now! We are striving for a healthy, nutritious diet now more than ever. And our children notice this: they develop a great joy in imitating what goes on in the kitchen at home and will want to cook up fantasy-filled meals for family, friends, and their stuffed animals. With the "tasty" Picnic Basket and the all-in-one "tasty" Camping Kitchen, this popular small foot product line has brought the trending theme of "Outdoors, Camping, and Outside Time" to playtime.
