I've always thought it best that kids were scared of kettles and pots on the hob.

Down to parents to educate kids but I would say that you really need to be careful. My boy got bad burns in a bonfire accident and when he was transferred to a specialist burns unit, it was staggering how many were kids. Accidents with kettles and hot drinks saw a large percentage of the intake under 10 years of age. It's not just the initial burn, you return to hospital over many months. Moan over and apologies but felt I had to......

PS Heat added - with a kettle, how could you not!!! Look after your little 'uns

don't do it! This kettle has the most annoying sound ever on it! ours is hidden as far away from the kids as possible! it drove us mad lol

It's a toy.

Which will teach kids that kettles and pots etc are okay to play with. Next thing you know they've grabbed a boiling pan from the hob to replace their lost toy kettle or pot.

You could apply the same thinking to cars, animals, guns, swords, aeroplanes, paint, power tools, etc, etc, but then it doesn't really leave much to play with does it?

I feel sorry for your child. Teach them to play and in doing so teach them about the real world so that they learn the difference between Mummy's kettle, Daddy's car, a stranger's dog in the park (i.e. not a soft cuddly one that never bites).

Granny/Granddad's house is the best place to keep toys like this.

That's more than a little patronising LOL, my daughter is now 21 and is a perfectly normal adult. But I have had experience of a child pulling a boiling pan from a hob, hence my worry of association. Kids shouldn't have to learn the hard way, by being burnt to learn, or being hit by a car instead of fearing the road, especially at the age these thing are aimed at, which is pre-school.

HAHA . Granny bought our kids one of these for Christmas a couple of years back. They thought it was funny until my wife hide it behind their sofa so the noise was still running before we left their house on boxing day. That will teach them to buy annoying toys .

That must be really terrible and I feel for you, but I cautiously suggest (not wishing to be patronising) the fundamental problem in that scenario is that the child could reach the pan and the child was not supervised. Regardless of the style of play and types of toys that child had it was a situation which, ideally, should not have arisen and I imagine it had very little to do with the fact the child had a play set of pots and pans.

Your logic dictates that kids that do not have play sets of pots, pans and kettles can safely be left with real pots, pans and kettles.
