What It Is
What It Is
With the Build 'n Play Kitchenette set, kids can use MEGA Bloks blocks to build and play in their own pretend kitchen. The set comes with 32 pieces, including accessories such as a spatula, frying pan, plates, and plastic utensils. There are also stickers so kids can decorate the kitchen. The plastic tub doubles as storage for all the pieces and the building surface. This is compatible with other MEGA Bloks Maxi System building sets.
Why It’s Fun
Pretend kitchens are great because they allow kids to engage in their own versions of activities they see mom or dad doing. With the Build 'n Play Kitchenette, kids can build a kitchen however they want and then engage in kitchen roleplay. The block play helps children develop fine motor skills, and the open-ended building fosters creative play.
Who It’s For
The Build 'n Play Kitchenette is graded for ages 1 and up, and younger kids will enjoy playing with the big pieces, but the real roleplay will start at around 2. The colors on this, which are mainly pink and purple, seem to gear this item more toward girls, but young boys may find the building and kitchen roleplay just as appealing.
What to Be Aware of
This only takes a few minutes to put together. The pieces are sized right for small hands, making it easy for preschoolers to build.
Parents will like the fact that everything stores together easily and compactly.
Parents should help children place the stickers on the blocks.
