I have lunch boxes etc from little bento world and they are great, but you could really go overboard with some of that stuff..
I have a kitchen aid and a great blender.
I have a waffle maker and have never used it. You can bake pies in an oven, donuts in a deep fryer or a pan with oil. I think it's really easy to crazy on all these new appliances eg soup maker, actifryer etc.. As lovely as they all look and sound, they just take up space and you can do most of it with just the essentials.
Tbh I'd only spend money on a kitchen aid (or one of the new similar ones) or thermomix and that'd be it.

I feel if you have a Thermomix/food processor or kitchenaid you don't really need much else for kids snacks? With any of those you can make cakes, slices, muffins, pies, fruit rolls, bread etc so I wouldn't bother with anything else.

Maybe just try new recipes?

Handheld mixer for cakes and cupcakes.
Bowl and wooden spoon for muffins, biscuits and cookies.
Food processor for slices, smoothies, icecream, fruit puree, dough, pasta, bliss balls.
I prefer to make bread by hand.
We do also have a popcorn maker because i like not having to use oil

I have a cake pop maker. You mix up a batter, spoon it in and it makes round balls of cake. If you want you can ice them and put them on a stick but I usually leave them plain or dust with sugar.
They cook in 4 minutes and cool fast - so handy at afternoon tea time when I want to whip up something.
I liked having a popcorn machine too but didn't bring it interstate. Yes, you can cook it on the stove but a popcorn machine is so, so much easier.
Both were $15 appliances so no big outlay. Just need cupboard space.

Depends what you want to make to What appliances you use.
I have none out of the ordinary ones i use for cooking. Foos processor and stick blender. My son only gets a sandwich . .some fruit. .sometimes yoghurt and/or rice crackers and that's it.

Are you looking at making things for DS when they start kindy ?
If so, mix up different recipes and ideas each week.
I alternate on days savoury to sweet muffins for recess, Same goes for crunch and sip, one day will be fruit the next it will be veggies. Biscuits vs a slice.
So if DS has fruit for crunch and sip they will get a savoury muffin for recess
As for appliances, a hand mixer, food processor, oven spoon and bowl, measuring cups
I think a lot of appliances these days are a gimic and would get used a few times them put in the back of the cupboard and forgotten. Having said that i do have a Mr woddles pancake maker which is the shape of a penguin where the belly is hollow for jam and cream. But he is used quite often
