DS has had his play kitchen since he turned 2 in August. He honestly doesn't really play with it much.


Should I put it away for a while in hopes of sparking his interest later down the road? I hate to do that as it's so darn cute abd it was a birthday gift...

I don't normally rotate the kitchen. (But while I have great intentions, I am lousy about rotating toys in general. I do it a few times a year, but not as often as I should.) However, if he isn't interested in it right now and you have space to store it, I might try rotating it. That might increase his interest in it in a little bit. You also might try having some slightly older kids come over to play and "model" using the kitchen.

dd just turned two, and I do rotate the location, if that makes sense. I don't necessarily rotate toys out, so that she can't play with them at all, but I change around where she can find things at sometimes, especially the bigger things.

A lot of times with her, it isn't necessarily the toy, but where in the room I put it that determines how much she plays with it. For example, we have a big window in her playroom that she loves, and anything that I put over near the window gets played with much more than anything else, so I rotate things over toward the window.... she likes to look out at everyone going by

I dont rotate the big things, but I do rotate the small things. So with her kitchen, one rotation has wooden playfood, an apron and chef hat, and two pots. The other rotation has fabric food, 2 different pans, and some wooden spoons. Her kitchen is in a 'housekeeping' center, so I also change the cleaning supplies, her dress up clothes and the accessories in that area.
