Look, Christmas is not a competition. But if you do want to win it, we need to let you know about this toy kitchen. It's a spectacular gift for little ones, something they'll play with for hours and months and years. It pleases parents because it sparks (screen-free) imaginative play, is easy to share and lets kids work on fine motor skills. And, for some reason, right now Walmart is offering it at 30 percent off its normal price.

This KidKraft Mosaic Magnetic kitchen is about three feet wide and just as tall. It includes all the modern accoutrements a tiny chef craves: an oven with knobs that turn, a magnetic-front fridge with a separate freezer, a microwave and even a little ice maker (with pretend ice cubes!). The mosaic backsplash is legit beautiful. There's even extra storage space for any existing kitchen gear your recipient might have. Normally such pretend luxury would run you three figures. This particular kitchen is generally priced at $130, but right now Walmart has it on sale for only $89!
Shoppers report it's easy to put together, with one pregnant mom getting it done in “30 min […] with no issues.” Another mom says, “assembly of this kitchen was super simple, as each piece is carefully numbered in accordance with the directions.” And though it took her closer to an hour, she says, “although a bit time consuming, the build was not at all tedious and [requires] nothing more than a screwdriver.”
How do kids like the finished product? Very well indeed, with shoppers across the board reporting that their small children “could not stop playing with it. My daughter loves opening and closing the doors.” One parent says, “My daughter (6) and son (3) love this kitchen set! They have so much fun cooking up their pretend food (which was bought separately) and serving it to me or each other.” The set may not include food, but it does come with tools like a ladle, pan and spatula.
All in all, it’s a real kid-pleaser, with one grandparent summing it up: “This kitchen is very cute and was easy to assemble. It is also the perfect size and does not take up too much space, while having everything a kitchen should have; including ice cubes that come out from the ice maker! It took an hour for this grandmother to put it together by herself. ...Sturdy, adorable and perfect in every way.”
