THE CLASSIC PLAY KITCHEN FOUNDER
The Classic Play Kitchen was created in July of 2017 by Shari Raymond to provide children and their parents with nontoxic and heirloom-quality toys that last generations. Shari was hunting for a play kitchen for her son and couldn’t find anything that met her three reasonable requirements: made in the USA, high-quality wood, and a chic, modern design, so she set out to create her own.
CLASSIC PLAY KITCHEN DESIGN
The Classic Play Kitchen is unlike any other. Starting with sketches upon sketches that mimic real designer kitchens, it then went through a year and half of design and development. Then Shari collaborated with toy designers, educators, parents, and of course, tons of kids, to shape the ultimate play kitchen. She then interviewed dozens of manufacturers to find the right fit before teaming up with a talented second-generation Amish toymaker in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
After finding the right maker, she then spent months sourcing the best materials, from solid woods and sturdy hinges to the highest quality magnetic chalkboard available. And when the final prototype was ready and approved, it was then rigorously tested by an independent third-party, CPSC-approved safety lab to make sure it met or exceeded the highest federal safety standards. The Classic Play Kitchen isn’t just any toy, it’s a children’s piece that your little ones will enjoy from day to day, sibling to sibling, and generation to generation.
