Early Learning Centre Little Cooks Kitchen

The Little Cook’s Kitchen is a fantastic play kitchen for your young cooking fan. With so many fun features and realistic touches, it will inspire your child to enjoy many years of happy play cooking – and there’s plenty of room to play with friends. One of the rings on the Little Cook’s Kitchen hob sizzles and the other makes boiling noises when you put a pan down, for an incredibly realistic play-cooking experience. The griddle lid lifts up. Your child can pretend to wash food in the Little Cook’s Kitchen sink, then pop it in the pan and get cooking. The oven has clicking dials, ready for play cake baking and potato roasting. The two-sided kitchen comes with everything your little chef needs, including microwave, dishwasher, sink, hob, oven, griddle, plant, shelves, cupboards, lots of storage space and even work-surfaces on the sides for preparing play meals. After a play feast, your child can load up the dishwasher – so there’s no washing up to do! Comes with 37 fantastic accessories so your child can enjoy play cooking straight away. Endless playtime for Christmas guaranteed.

Lamaze Freddie the Firefly 3 in 1 Gym


It offers three different positions to follow baby’s growth: lay and play, tummy time play and sit and play.  The flexible arch features colourful toys and textured teethers, each adjustable so they’re always within reach. The large discovery mirror helps baby learn how to focus, track images, and explore the wonderful things a face can do.  A multi-coloured cushion wraps gently around baby’s head, offering protection and support, even from birth. As baby grows, the mat is perfect for sit and play.  Textured, crinkly fabrics encourage baby to explore and stripes, checkers and a variety of contrasting patterns stimulate focus and vision.  The soft, padded mat folds flat and the toys detach for play on the go. The handy arch can be removed so baby can use the mat on its own, or can be easily and safely attached for added fun. Mat is machine washable. The arch is surface washable. Ideal for babies from birth onwards.
