Age Group: Infant/Toddlers
We have done a ton of field testing on this one to bring you the perfect combination of durability, ergonomics and pedagogy. Mud kitchens provide sensory rich activities that children crave while promoting creativity, role-playing, collaboration, motor skills, and communication. Our mud kitchen allows for intense sensory input with the sink at one end while the long countertop provides more creative and dramatic opportunities. This purposely does not look like a kitchen appliance. The open counter allows them to look at each other and develop social skills while they play. One day it is a mud kitchen, the next a chemist station or even a planting post. Built with a heavy duty stainless steel sink and stopper, an ergonomically designed shelf, and durable kiln dried cedar countertop, this moveable piece will endure hours of sensory rich play.
Make sure you let us know the age of the children playing with it so we can build it to exactly the correct ergonomic height for your kids. Accessories not included.
