Best Play Kitchens: Our play kitchen is one of the most used toys in our house with both our toddler and our preschooler! I think the ideal age for it is 1-2 years but we still get a ton of use out of it with our 4.5 year old and 2.5 year old. I know Brooke, our 4 month old will be loving in a year!

Finding a play kitchen for your kids can be a bit overwhelming–like where do you even start? So I rounded up my 19 favorite play kitchens in every style and budget. I even found several look-for-less kitchens! They look just like the expensive Pottery Barn Kids ones but are budget friendly!
WHITE PLAY KITCHENS:
These play kitchens are basically like mini versions of the kitchen of my dreams! I wish I had an adult-sized version of the white cabinets and brass hardware!
GRAY PLAY KITCHENS:
I love these gray play kitchens and was SUPER tempted to buy one for our playroom to replace our current one. But, alas, rational thinking won out.
SPLURGE WORTHY PLAY KITCHENS:
These splurge-worthy play kitchens are not cheap but you can often find 20% off coupons and couple them with free shipping to bring the price down considerably. I will say, although they are expensive, you certainly get what you pay for. I have seen the PB Kids ones in person and they are really well-made. A little boutique playspace that we have in our town actually has this one (pictured above) and it gets A LOT of wear and tear and still looks terrific!
LOOK-FOR-LESS PLAY KITCHENS:
These are great dupes for the more expensive Pottery Barn versions. One caveat worth mentioning is that these are significantly smaller than many of the other kitchens. If you have multiple kids or older kids, I would consider getting one of the larger ones. My two year old would make these Teamson versions look comically small.
COMPACT PLAY KITCHENS:
These kitchens are smaller than I would recommend with multiple kids (but I know plenty of families who love them!) They are perfect for smaller rooms or houses, or younger kids!
BUDGET-FRIENDLY PLAY KITCHENS UNDER $200:
Let’s be honest. I LOVE the expensive play kitchens, but I think that $150 for a play kitchen is a good price. These are all the best play kitchens under $200.
PLAY KITCHENS GOOD FOR MULTIPLE KIDS:
You already know which one we have–this one. It is one of the largest and packs a ton of bang for your buck. My only gripe with it is that it isn’t as pretty as the others which is really a stupid reason not to like it. I just wish they had a white version! Anyhow, these are all good larger sized play kitchens that work well for older kids and multiple kids. My tall kids can both play well in our kitchen.
