When I was little, one of the big things I really really wanted was a beautiful working oven toy. A nice big red one, not a pink one, because red was my most favourite colour in the world. My parents got me a huge kitchen set and it had sink, an oven and little shelves. It was all very plastic fantastic and had a very bright yellow hob. But it didn’t have a working oven. I was always secretly slightly disappointed at that. I couldn’t understand why toy companies wouldn’t allow an 7 year old to own a fully functioning gas oven, what use was a pretend oven? I mean, what could possibly go wrong? I made my peace with the pretend oven eventually and moved onto Star Wars toys, typewriters and, eventually an amazing Commodore 64 where I’d wait patiently for 45 minutes or so to play Bomb Jack. These are some of my most favourite memories when it comes to playing with toys as a child.
These days I relive a lot of my childhood through Little Z’s toys. Things have moved on quite a lot and, in some ways, have stayed the same. There are still the same classical kitchen sets and dolls houses and there and a whole host of brand new trends and toys to go with it. If I had to pick a kitchen set now it would probably be this. How lovely and red is that!
It would be something I could probably play with for a while, just to test it out of course. Little Z would want to play on it for hours, practising making cups of pretend tea and playing with the oven that will have to function on imagination.
