No-ones childhood was ever complete without toys. They made the most memorable moments of our playtime, especially when we had a favourite toy or playset. Playtime is essential not just for keeping the child occupied but also in developing crucial social and emotional aspects of their lives. A kitchen set toy, for instance, is an excellent way of teaching a baby girl how to be responsible and help them identify and develop their interests early. That said,  here are the reasons why you should get your baby girl a kitchen set toy:


THEY HELP THEM DEVELOP THEIR SOCIAL SKILLS

More often than not, your baby girl will ask you to her let her invite her friends over so that they can play with their toy kitchen sets. There will be a lot of activity going on, including cooking pretend meals and hosting pretend tea parties. These are the times you get to see your children develop social skills of interaction and form relationships that may carry on to adulthood. They learn to interact with each other based on who they are and what they mean to each other, how they behave towards each other, understanding what to expect from each other, learning how to work together, what behaviours to tolerate and how to deal with problems. 


THEY HELP THEM DEVELOP MOTOR SKILLS

There are two types of motor skills;  fine and gross skills. Fine skills involve using and moving the smaller body parts including fingers, toes, wrists and feet. These are used to fine-tune activities to precise levels, pick up, hold and move small objects. 

Gross skills, on the other hand, involve the movement of whole body parts including the entire arm, legs and the head. They usually involve the whole body and include actions such as walking, crawling, jumping and dancing.

While playing with the toy kitchen set, baby girls can use the motor skills to coordinate their activities. Continuous and repetitive use of the skills helps them to master them and achieve their milestones quicker.


ROLE PLAYING HELPS THEM LEARN AND PREPARE FOR ADULT LIFE

It is hard for a child to do something just because they were told to do it without knowing why. A kitchen set toy lays out most of the real-life kitchen for them to explore and learn. When the baby girl pretends to be cooking a meal, she is carrying out similar processes as those of preparing an actual meal. She knows that glass will break if not stored well, the dishes will pile up in the sink if she doesn't clean them and that her friends or toys will go 'hungry' if she does not feed them in good time. This is a priceless way of teaching her responsibility, and more often than not, such lessons are remembered even in adulthood.


In conclusion, a play kitchen toy is a perfect deal for your baby girl to help her develop social skills, motor skills and learn responsibility.
