My daughter Kiera loves helping me out in the kitchen. Just this summer, she helped make several batches of cupcakes and cookies. Because of her love for baking, Kiera was ecstatic to hear about American Girl’s new kitchen play set. As the cherry on top, American Girl sent us the set to review! We are thrilled to share all the details about the new American Girl doll kitchen. We’ve also included some highlights of other sets American Girl released this summer and fall 2020.

American Girl Kitchen Video Review!
Inspiring Girls to Cook
The American Girl brand has always been great at inspiring girls to develop their dreams and learn new skills. Through reading the storybooks and playing with the doll sets, my two daughters love learning about the American Girl characters.
This American Girl kitchen has all the accessories to create a beautiful culinary space for 18″ dolls. Stocked with play food and tiny kitchen utensils, it’s the perfect interactive play set for girls who love to cook and bake! The doll kitchen comes in two main sections; a countertop island with a sink and a refrigerator connected next to the stove and oven. Both of these kitchen segments are surprisingly heavy and very good quality, even down to the tiniest knob. Kiera really enjoyed opening all the accessories and adorable miniature kitchen utensils.
American Girl Baking Station
This American Girl kitchen comes with all the things to pretend you and your doll are baking together. The set includes tiny canisters filled with white glitter, labeled flour and sugar. Girls can use the tiny mixer (with two different mixing attachments) to mix up cake batter in the miniature bowl. Next, they can measure out dry ingredients with the tiny measuring cups and measuring spoons. Finally, girls can slide a pie into the oven, or remove it from the oven and serve up a slice on small plates with tiny forks.

Food Fit for American Girl Dolls
Alternately, if you don’t feel like baking sweets, you can always make your doll and her friends a pizza or a stack of pancakes! The American Girl kitchen released in Summer 2020 comes with an assortment of adorable play food. Inside the fridge, girls can store the carton of milk, butter, eggs, pitcher of lemonade, fresh lemons, cheese, bag of salad, salad dressing, maple syrup and more! Of course, girls can use any of this food to make their American Girl doll a splendid lunch or a picnic for friends. All the American Girl play food is super adorable and detailed with the typical signature American Girl quality.

Realistic Play Experience
This American Girl kitchen is very interactive in that it inspires girls to practice cooking through play. Many of the kitchen appliances make sounds or light up. One of the stove burners makes the sound of boiling water when you put a pot on the stove. Another burner makes the sound of a whistling kettle when you put the kettle on. The oven dings when the pizza or pie is done, and the pizza and pie changes color after being in the oven!
These fun details set this American Girl doll kitchen apart from other play sets. Even the ice machine works by dispensing two small pieces of play ice, and makes the sound of pouring water. Finally, the refrigerator light turns on when the door is opened.
Overall, the American Girl kitchen is a really fun set for girls to pretend cooking with. This toy set is just one of American Girl’s recent releases that inspire imaginative play for girls!
