Inside the Laugh and Learn Baby Kitchen!
My kids love anything that has to do with pretend food and play kitchens so I knew the Laugh and Learn Baby Kitchen from Fisher-Price was going to be a hit with our 15-month-old son the second I saw it. I can’t resist buying little kitchens and pretend food because my kids always find it entertaining.
This little baby kitchen has learning activities built-in, there’s shapes, colors, numbers, and letters. I was really surprised at the cool, little details in this play kitchen for babies. Overall, great purchase on my part because of the educational and entertainment value.

The Inside of the Laugh and Learn Baby Kitchen
The sink-area of the kitchen is really sweet, there’s an on/off switch that flips on a real working kitchen light above the stove and sink. Under the working kitchen light is a window that looks outside to see a puppy grilling on the barbecue.
The sun is shining out the window and there’s a bird looking in. It’s all just a big sticker, but it really looks so cute. Next to the window sticker is cute clock with the numbers going around it. In the middle of the pretend clock is a spinning ball that changes from purple to green. The sink faucet goes up and down, and there’s soap dispenser behind it next to the pretend cookie jar. The stove makes real sizzling sounds when you put the pan on it or plays music depending on which mode you are in.
Between the sink and stove is a switch, this switch turns on the different modes of play. There’s an off switch (very important), English mode, Spanish mode, music and imagination. That’s right, this kitchen is bi-lingual, we don’t use the Spanish mode much, but it’s pretty cool that it’s there. The oven door opens and closes and the drawer inside slides in and out from the back.
The refrigerator door has a cool shape sorter built-in, there are three shaped food items that fit through the door. You get a triangle, circle and square shaped food item that baby can put through the door and it lands in the fridge. On the door is the alphabet from A-Z and well as a smiling face that you see on a lot of Laugh and Learn toys.
The refrigerator and sink area close or open up. On the side is the noise-level switch, this controls how loud the toy is, you can turn it louder or quieter depending on your preference.
The Outside of the Laugh and Learn Baby Kitchen
When you open up the sink and fridge, the inside are reveals a whole other play area for your baby. The inside is just as cool as the outside because there is so much to do in there as well. The light in the fridge turns on when you flip that same switch on the outside. There’s a freezer area with pretend frozen pizza, orange juice, vegetables and get this, an ice maker! Below the freezer area is vegetable and fruit area, where your child can flip through a book fruit and veggies.
Below that is the refrigerator drawer that pulls out, this is the same area that your shape sorting toys will fall into. It’s pretty cool how it pulls in and out, just like a real refrigeration door. On the opposite side, inside the refrigerate area, there’s an area with pretend items like eggs, milk, fresh fruit, ketchup, grape jelly and mustard! Just below is the area where the shapes come in through the door. There really is a lot of incredible details put into this Laugh and Learn baby kitchen, I’m still surprised by how much there is to do. My one year old son loves playing with it and when he sees the smiling face on the fridge he immediately makes a B-line for the toy to play with it. The price is certainly worth what you are getting with this little play kitchen for babies.
Such a COOL Kitchen for Babies
Kids naturally want to play kitchen, restaurant and house. Role play builds imagination even in babies. We love the Laugh and Learn Learning Kitchen but I’ve heard good things about the Little Tikes Sounds Kitchen too! My kids haven’t played with that one yet, but maybe we will really soon, you never know! Bright Starts also makes a cute play kitchen for babies that seems like it would be a lot of fun. Any one of these would make a good gift for a baby or toddler because role play is fun!
