My toddler is at the stage where turning the dials on the cooker is fun and hanging the towel up, tidying and let’s not forget cooking, is the way to go.
My other half has been looking at kitchens galore on several websites. She found Amazon to have the best selection so I’ve compiled a list of our favourites. Be sure to follow me on twitter as I’m price watching them so I will alert you if the price drops. I was trying to find competitions to win one but I’m not good at trawling through google for those so instead I’ve gone through many pages on Amazon and tried to include ones that won’t be found with a simple search.

I took my 1-year-old daughter to Forge Mill Farm for her first look at farm animals and she adored the place.
It’s located beside Sandwell Valley Country Park in West Bromwich.
There’s a small car park by the entrance. A little shop that sells local produce as well as plants, gifts, ice cream and hot drinks is at hand. There’s also a play area for kids.
A walkway takes you around all the areas. There’s cows, sheeps, pigs and a couple of ponies. There’s also a couple of hen houses (home to chickens, roosters and rabbits).
It’s a friendly and well looked after place. Our second trip wasn’t long after our first. After seeing them, my daughter’s first words out of her mouth in the mornings nowadays are farm animal sounds!
It’s a great spot on a sunny day. We enjoyed the walk on the farm trail as well. So, no, it’s not just for the little ones to enjoy!
