The Find: a trendy, top-of-the-line play kitchen for miniature food fanatics

Torontonians are obsessed with fancy kitchen appliances: Aga cookers and Miele dishwashers have become serious status symbols. It figures, then, that a plastic Little Tikes play set might not cut it for the offspring of the foodie generation. Instead, there’s the work of Mike and Kelly Collier, the husband-and-wife duo behind Kid-Chen Co., a local company that hand-crafts complete kitchen sets for fussy future chefs. Our favourite is this mint-hued, vintage-inspired model, which looks just like the real-life retro kitchens we spotted at this year’s Interior Design Show. Made to order from sustainably sourced maple plywood and non-toxic paint, the fridge stands about 30 inches tall—and contains some unusually sophisticated faux foods, including a whole roasted salmon with asparagus and lemon. $1,100
