My children love imaginative play. Quite often in our downtime you will find them free playing with their toy kitchen. They love to ensure that my tummy is constantly satisfied between all the imaginary coffee, soups, cakes and cookies that they “feed” me. If only all foods could come with no calories.

Both of my children have a huge love for Sesame Street and their play kitchen. Given such, I was ecstatic when I was provided the opportunity to review the Sesame Street Come ‘n Play Cookie Monster Kitchen Cafe.

The Sesame Street Come ‘n Play Cookie Monster Kitchen Cafe came equipped with 6 pieces of play food, a spatula and frying pan, which the children could use to help Cookie Monster serve up many yummy, healthy snacks. 
The product even included batteries. It’s always a saving grace when a product arrives with batteries included!! It prevents so many unnecessary meltdowns.
My children could not wait for the Sesame Street Come ‘n Play Cookie Monster Kitchen Cafe to be put together upon it’s arrival. The parcel arrived shortly before bedtime, and I had made the mistake of opening the parcel within their view. Needless to say, bedtime was delayed that night. My husband and I quickly got the Sesame Street Come ‘n Play Cookie Monster Kitchen Cafe assembled. It literally took 10 to 15 minutes at max to assemble. It might have been assembled faster had my children not been walking away and wandering the house with the parts.
Once assembled, my children immediately found love! It was hard to pull them away from their new play kitchen.

Sesame Street Come ‘n Play Cookie Monster Cafe is a very interactive toy. The burners light up and sizzle. You can ding the cafe bell “for service”. Abby Cadabby, Cookie Monster and Elmo love to serenade you with their superb singing voices. My son loves to dance along to them whenever they break out in song. The children are able to feed Elmo and Abby Cadabby while Cookie Monster helps them along with his prompts. The children are then able to search for and identify the play food to feed Elmo or Abby. Any food placed in the mouths of Abby or Elmo will drop into the oven. The only downside is that certain words aren’t pronounced fluently by Cookie Monster, which can make it difficult for the children to distinguish. Tomato, for example.

This toy helps promote the development of cognitive learning,  imaginative play, social and emotional development, and fine motor skills. My little man is just shy of 2 and I have noticed his vocabulary has drastically expanded since he has received this toy. He loves to try to mimic  Elmo, Abby Cadabby and Cookie Monster.

Unlike most play kitchens, the Sesame Street Come ‘n Play Cookie Monster Kitchen Cafe is fairly small. It takes up minimal space and can easily be tucked away in a corner or nook.

I would highly recommend this play kitchen to anyone in the market. It is suitable for children between the ages of 18 months and 4 years. It is fairly inexpensive too!

Disclosure – I received this product from Hasbro for review purposes. No other compensation has been received. All opinions are those of my own.
