Hello Kitty Waffle Maker

Hello Kitty Waffle MakerHow cute is this – a waffle maker in the shape of Hello Kitty! The kids will love this one.

The Hello Kitty Waffle Maker makes four different shaped Kitty characters.

Bear in mind that the waffles are only small so although you will be eating them too, they are really only a good size for the kids.

It is also worth noting that a number of reviewers recommended spraying the waffle maker first with oil to prevent sticking.

Other than that, this Hello Kitty Waffle Maker has been rated extremely well by reviewers.

What We Like

  • It’s great fun for the kids.
  • It does actually make good waffles and is not just for show.
  • It has a stay cool exterior.
  • The nonstick surface makes it easy to clean.
  • Recipes are included.

What We Don’t Like

  • It does make small waffles – more snack size than anything else.
  • The waffles can stick so you need to use a spray on oil to prevent this from happening.

Kids in The Kitchen Cookware – Kids Cookware Sets

Those of us with children and grandchildren know how much kids love to help out in the kitchen at baking time.

Providing you children with cooking sets encourages them to use their imagination, and develops their love of cooking, it also encourages social development. Cooking is one of those great activities that can be done alone, along with mum or in a small group of friends.

I started my kids off as soon as they showed an interest. It’s fun to see them learn the various techniques and to see their delight when some mis-shappen piece of dough becomes a thing of pleasure to be decorated and enjoyed.

Both my grandmother and mother were fantastic cooks, a skill they deemed unnecessary to pass onto me. So I struggled to learn to cook as a young wife and often found it frustrating that the things I baked just didn’t match up to their creations. And that is the reason I was determined to ensure that all my kids could cook. My grandson is very grateful now that he doesn’t have to live off baked beans and take away like his mates.

So here are a few items that might just encourage your little one to want to cook.
