If you haven’t yet discovered the magical world of play that is the Adelaide owned store Oskar’s Wooden Ark, grab a coffee and allow a good bit of time to scroll through their website. It’s absolutely full of the most wonderful toys made to inspire parents and children to play, learn, explore, create, and make memories together. From brands like Grimm’s , Grapat, Gluckskafer, Sarah’s Silks and many more the range is absolutely huge and all of their products are of the highest quality. These toys are the ones you’ll hand down through not just your own kids, but probably friends kids, and maybe even your kids kids. No fast toys here.
And if your kids are into pretend play, role play and make believe you must check out the Role Play category of the Oskar’s Wooden Ark website. From play kitchens and the pretend food to go in them to work benches, play shops and dolls furniture and accessories there is just so much to choose from, you really can’t go wrong.
We were lucky enough to be gifted a Gluckskafer Play Kitchen Double Sided with Stove and Sink for my little one to try out, and almost a year later, she’s still at it all the time whipping up her magical creations and potions. Many a playdoh pie has been baked in this oven, many dozens of wooden eggs cooked up on this stovetop and she’s even got her very own sink to do the dishes afterwards.
I love the weight of this kitchen and it’s very evident that it’s made with high quality materials (sustainably sourced beech and linden wood to be exact) There’s a cooktop, oven, sink, hooks to hang your utensils from and plenty of cupboard space for your bits and pieces. Also love that it’s double sided so two people can play at the one time.
Oskar’s Wooden Ark have a great range of play kitchens from Gluckskafer and the also stock stainless steel and enamel play kitchen tools from the same brand. You can totally deck out your kitchen with a whole range of bowls, pans, plates and utensils. We’ve been slowly adding to our collection with the cheese grater and egg beater on the list for this Christmas.
And please check out the pretend food range from Erzi. You won’t believe how many products there are and they’re the perfect addition to your play kitchen. There’s all sorts of fruit and veggies, salami, cakes, bread, sauce and even Erzimite from the Australian assortment range. So cute.
Check out the entire range of pretend play from Oskar’s Wooden Ark on their website. But make sure you’re sitting, with a coffee because it’s quite an adventure!
I received a Gluckskafer Play Kitchen free of charge from Oskar’s Wooden Ark for the purpose of this review however as for all reviews from Kids in Adelaide the above is honest and in my own words.
