FAQ's

What is the lead-time from placing an order to delivery?

Approx. 3-4 weeks from purchase, but we always do our best to turn them around quicker or to meet a special date that you may have. Please contact us or leave a note at checkout to give us the heads up if your order is for a special occasion.

Are the kitchens easily movable?

The ‘Big Mud’ weighs approx. 25 kg and can be easily moved with two people at each end. The ‘Little Mud’ weighs a lot less and can be handled with one person.

Do the kitchens come pre-assembled?

Yes, all our kitchens arrive assembled and ready to go. At this stage we do not offer a flat pack version, however it is something we would like to offer in the future.

What are your kitchens made from and are they weather/waterproofed?

Our kitchens are individually handcrafted using responsibly sourced, LOSP (Light Organic Solvent Preservative) Treated Pine. This is recommended and approved by Kid Safe WA. They are also protected with 2 coats of high-grade exterior timber paint and/or varnish. We can also use hardwood for the bench tops depending on your selection. However, like anything wooden outside they will eventually weather and the timber can move. The better covered, cleaned and looked after the longer they will last. 

What sort of maintenance is required?

If you would like to get the best out of your Mud Kitchen for many years to come, we recommend that you conduct a 12-month routine maintenance check and undertake the following. Re-coat as colour changes or as water resistance diminishes and as soon as the coating shows signs of deterioration. Refer to the Cabot’s or Intergrain website for full maintenance advice.

For the kids, hand washing is important after any mud/sand play. It is also good to get the kids to wash up the utensils and kitchen regularly with warm soapy water. Not only do they enjoy the water play, but it cleans them up at the same time.

Does the kitchen come with anything?

Yes, you will receive a FREE bundle pack to get the kids started straight away. Included is a selection of kitchen utensils, white play sand, dried flowers and a potted colour.

Can we have the kitchen personalized?

Yes. Maximum characters do apply due to the length of the kitchens, some names just cannot fit. You can personalize it with name/s of your children, school or whatever you fancy. Location of the name sign is generally on the splash back of the kitchen and centered, however this can vary if the herb shelf is added, then it will be centered to the left side.

Can I choose the font for the writing?

Unfortunately not. We use one type of stencil for our name signs. 

Are the sink bowls removable?

Yes, the stainless-steel sink bowls are easily removed and replaced for ease of cleaning. The size of sink bowls may vary depending on availability. However, if required/preferred we can install fixed sinks with a drainage point at an additional cost. 

Can we have our kitchen painted and choose the colour?

Yes, you can choose your own colour from our selection range. If you wish to use a specific colour outside of this, please note that a $15 surcharge applies and we will require the paint swatch details. The frame/main body is painted using an exterior timber paint and the bench top can either be Pine with a protective clear-coat or you can upgrade to have Hardwood i.e. Merbau/Jarrah depending on your preference.  We always use high grade exterior products suitable for timber so when your kitchen arrives, they are fully weather and waterproofed, ready for action.  

What age range are the kitchens designed for?

Our kitchens are perfect for all ages, ranging from young toddlers (basically when they can stand unassisted) to primary school aged children. We have also seen parents and teaching staff interact and having fun in the kitchens with the kids.

Can I change the set out of my kitchen or order a custom made kitchen to my required measurements/requests?

Yes, you can. We have a qualified carpenter on board who can help bring your own vision to life. Please contact us with your ideas and requirements so we can provide a personalised quote.

Are kitchens returnable or refundable?
