Mud Kitchens, Lets COOK!

Why we make childrens mud kitchens

Hello, my name is Anne, thank you so much for visiting Harry Was 8. Our mission is to try & inspire children to get passionate about planting & growing vegetables, cooking, creating & above all playing without fear or inhibition. You can read here more about our story and why food became important to us.  We make a range of toys & resources that hopefully encourage kids to get back in touch with nature. You can explore our mud kitchen range here & there are more products on the way!

We love making mud kitchens because they are great for role play, shop play, science play & art play. A mud kitchen allows children to interact with the world around them, to touch, feel & explore, inside or outside ! Add some pots, pans & utensils & you have created an award winning restaurant or a pop up cafe. On the menu might be yummy flower cakes, mud pies & herb soups. Add a magnifying glass, safety goggles & some measuring jugs & we have a science lab. The opportunities for imaginative play are endless! 

Perhaps, now more than ever it is important we encourage our children through play to get their hands dirty & start growing those sprouts. I hope you love our products as much as we enjoy making them!
