Quality crafted from Baltic Birch plywood - Some easy assembly is required. Durable child safe paint finish and solid wood construction are hallmarks of Hape toys. Hape's toys stimulate children through every stage of development and help nurture and develop their natural abilities.

As with the Kidkraft Gourmet Kitchen, we think it's important to teach our kids the importance of healthy eating. The Gourmet Kitchen by Hape is also another great product that makes healthy living fun.
Hape has a reputation of using environmentally friendly materials in their products and this is no exception.
Hape's Gourmet Kitchen is slightly smaller than the Kidkraft one so may be more height appropriate for younger kids. This is also a huge plus for those of us living in tiny shoeboxes in Manhattan.
We also LOVE the other accessories Hape makes for the kitchen (sold separately). Especially the Mighty Mixer, the Refrigerator, and all the food accessories.
NOTE: To acquire all the pieces like different food accessory sets and refrigerator can be quite costly. Compared to the Kidkraft one, you don't get as much bang for your buck with Hape. However, we feel that the Hape designs are much cuter, if that makes a difference.
