The KidKraft toy kitchen looks normal like children’s toy kitchens. There are all the accessories you would find in an adult-sized kitchen: a refrigerator, an oven, a stove and a sink. Plastic and wooden utensils and food are stored in drawers or in the small pantry.
What sets the kitchen apart is not obvious. Many items include RFID chips that allow sensors placed around the kitchen to register them. Suppose a child is pretending to fry something on the stove, a speaker might emit a sizzling sound. RFID capability can be attached to Echo Dots, Amazon’s Alexa-hosting smart speaker product.
