This has resulted in appliances and products designed to enhance Kitschen Play. Seemingly mundane pieces such as mugs and toasters suddenly receive whimsical makeovers, proving that though home cooking is a better choice in a financial and familial sense, consumers still need the process to be engaging on a psychological level.
