Sink to their level

With Little Tikes’ new Splish Splash Sink and Stove, kids ages 3 and older will be absorbed for long stretches of time as they cook and clean dishes in the “working” sink.

The drain and pump-action faucet elevates this toy above its peers. The tidy toy holds all of the accessories (frying pan, spatula, tongs, plates, forks, knives, spoons, and cups) for easy portability. The gender-neutral kitchen is a great gift for preschoolers, and can be used indoors or outdoors. The only drawback of this engrossing toy is the potential for tiny dishpan hands!
