Great Kitchen for the Price! 4/7/2013
Bridget from Baltimore, MD
I bought this kitchen 6 years ago for my first daughter when she was 3. Today all three of my daughters (9yr, 3yr, and 1yr) are still playing with it!!! If I did not have more children I doubt I would have hung on to it for this long as my 9 yr old is very tall for her age (size 12) but she still loves playing kitchen with her little sisters in this kitchen. It still looks like new. Not one thing has worn out or broken in 6 years of constant use!
My 3 year old would love it if u could send it 12/6/2008
Lynette from Tasmania Australia
My 3 year old son loves to cook as we can't get them down here in Australia i searched the internet and got onto your site and found this kitchen centre and i was quite dissapointed to find it could not be shiped any where out of the united states.
My son loves it, but.... 12/6/2008
Angela from Small town in Michigan
This product was purchased for my three year old by his grandmother. Even though I am directions challenged, I was able to assemble the product. The major problem that I have is the fact that the oven and dishwasher doors do not stay closed. I am more bothered by this, than my three year old. I believe it is due to the fact that the doors are made out of a pliable plastic and were slighly malformed upon receiving the kitchen set. On a positive note,I really appreciate the fact that this kitchen set is designed to be gender neutral. My three year old is a boy who loves to cook. If the issue did not exist with the doors, I would recommend this product to others. Not all children I believe would be as understanding as my son regarding the doors.
2 and 4 yr old loves it! 12/6/2008
Nikki from Michigan
We got this for my 2yr old's birthday but I think my 4 yr old plays with it just as much. It keeps them both very busy.
Best Kitchen I Found In This Price Range 12/6/2008
Jennifer from Michigan
I'm very happy with this kitchen. We just gave it to our two-year-old for her Birthday and she loves it. The doors open and close easily. The burners bubble, sizzle, and light up. The size is perfect. It's nice and compact, but still offers everything the children like to play with. I will warn that there is alot of assembly required. I think that must be why it is less expensive than the others. An electric screwdriver would come in handy when assembling. The instructions were great though. We're very pleased with our purchase.
My child loves it BUT... 12/6/2008
Sandy from South Jersey
My child just LOVES this kitchen but unfortunately it's not very sturdy and tips over quite easily. It took my husband HOURS to put together and he's an engineer! If I were a single mom, that kitchen would've been sent back because I'm not quite sure I'd have the patience to assemble all of that! However, like I said, my son just loves it and does play with it on a daily basis. He especially loves using the microwave and the play cell phone. It was shipped in a very timely manner which was a great thing because my son was so excited about it! :)
my 3 yr old wanted a kitchen BAD 12/6/2008
Anessa from oklahoma
instructions could be alot more clearer on how to put it together-other then that it is perfect for price
My son plays with it all the time!!! 12/6/2008
Jenelle from Graham, WA
The first and the last thing he does in his day is play with his kitchen. He loves the sound effects and all the different places he can open up and put things in. The oven doesn't close great but that was easily solvable
My sons loved this kitchen! 12/6/2008
Keandra from Norman, OK
The kitchen is very nice and has boy colors unlike many of the other kitchens. I didn't know how my 2 boys would like the play kitchen idea, but they absolutely love it. It has all the things a real kitchen has, and they have had hours of imaginary play. The only downfall of the kitchen is that it comes in about 100 pieces and is quite time and patience consuming to put together. But it was worth the low cost.
2 yr old loves it, but difficult to put together 12/6/2008
Deana from Georgia
It took my very handy husband 4 hrs to put this together, he was not a happy camper. :( Our 2 yr old's reaction was worth it though. She plays with it everyday.
Not as Good as Expected 12/6/2008
melissa from NJ
Very poor quality Cheap Plastic , screws broke right thru toy Door wouldn't keep close Wasn't of Money , would never purchase another american plastic toys again
Good product for the price 12/6/2008
Gwamma from PA
Lots of pieces to put together! Nice kitchen for the price, tho. Not real big and pricey like others. Cute design but a little flimsy. Sure she'll love for Christmas!
stands up to the test of my 2 year old rough play 12/6/2008
Renee from New York
my kids love this kitchen set but was disappointed in how long it took to put together (several hours) and would've liked if it was just a bit bigger. otherwise, both my 4 and 2 year old love it. it fits perfectly in my kitchen and distracts them so i can cook our dinner.
My nephew absolutely loves it 12/6/2008
Eileen from NY
It is great for children - unfortunately since I am part of a Quality Department I see what the kids don't. Read directions carefully as certain parts must be put on before others or you must take apart. Doors don't shut all the way but for the price this is wonderful.
My kids love it 12/6/2008
Stacey from Texas
Hard to put together
ok set for price, flimsy design, poor instructions 12/6/2008
Amb from Boston
My 2 yr old likes it, but it took over 4 hours to put together - horrible instructions, every little piece had to be cut apart and lots of parts to screw in etc - not worth the effort, but ok for the price - my son does enjoy playing with it and it distracts him enough for me to do simple tasks around the kitchen - one more drawback - it is very light & flimsy, and the design allows it to topple if my son pulls on the top parts - so i have to vigilantly watch him while he's playing with it.
Pretty Good over all 12/6/2008
Lisa from small town in Utah
Product plastic was a bit warped in places and was hard to pull apart with out leaving sharp edges, but over all was a very nice set once it was put together.
My granddaughter plays with it for hours. 12/6/2008
John from Rice Lake, Wisconsin
This was a gift for my 3-year-old granddaughter, sent to her parents in Phoenix, AZ. We heard from them right after her birthday; they said she plays with the kitchen for hours; and she wants to cook every time her mother does. Thanks.
Tracy from a small town in Wisconsin
The installation instructions were useless and poorly written. The doors will not stay closed. The parts were all molded in plastic and once separated were sharp and dangerous. Terrible buy!
great for the price 12/6/2008
Gary from NJ
Put it together last night, definitely time consuming, went together easily, pretty solid once its all done, great for the price, fits nicely in a corner
2 1/2 year old granddaughter loves it! 12/6/2008
Roberta from Houston, Texas
First off Tracey must have just gotten a bad one. Yes, it was a bit time consuming, but once it was together, I felt it was a great buy. My grandaughter received it for Christmas and just loves playing with it. When removing the pieces that were together, it was just a matter of using the right tool which left no sharp edges. Would purchase another one for someone else.
Great Value 12/6/2008
Kari from GA
This is a great toy for the price! My 17 month old loves it and I know he will enjoy it for the next few years.
a lot of work to put together 12/6/2008
julia from maryland
I bought this for my daughter for christmas. She loves to play with and cook food for her brothers. It is pretty solid and sturdy once you put it together,. But it is a lot of pieces and took a long time to put together
Not good as expected 12/6/2008
Judy from Omaha, NE
Be prepared to have LOTS of TIME and PATIENCE. Lots of small parts and instructions were not user-friendly.
Takes Patience to put together, but worth it 12/6/2008
Donna from Pennsylvania
The directions don't tell you step by step how to put it together. It uses pictures showing where the screws go and what parts go together. You have to have patience and time to figure it out. My husband and I put it together in under 2 hours. It was worth it, the kids love it. And it isn't too big. Nice size for the room. I would recommend if you are short on space but want a fun play kitchen for your kids to use their imagination.
My 3-year old loves it!! 12/6/2008
Claudia from small town in Oklahoma
My daughter loves the kitchen center. She plays with it almost daily. It did take me almost 4 hours to put the center together,but other than that very happy with the product.
My two year old plays in her kitchen everyday 12/6/2008
sonya from atlanta
Great for toddlers because they can reach all of the knobs and components. It makes them feel as if they are "cooking" in a "real" kitchen just like mommy! (ages 2-3)
My 3-year old loves it 12/6/2008
Leslie from NH
Quality of the material is ok. Took over 4 hours to assemble. Had to smooth out all the edges w/ a blade once detached from each other.
My 2 year old LOVES it 12/6/2008
Jill from Florida
only thing I didn't like was all the little peices were on sheets that you had to break them all out. other than that excellent!
Both my kids love it! 12/6/2008
Heather from Chicago
Every kid who comes to my house, boy or girl, loves to play with this. I have a 4 1/2 yr old and a 2 year old boy and they both love it.
My 2 year old loves it 12/6/2008
Susan from South of Boston MA
It is good. . . it can easily be tipped over, but I feel for the price I got my moneys worth
My 4 year old loves it! 12/6/2008
Jessica from small town in Ohio
My 4 year old and 2 year old have a lot of fun with this toy.
My 2 and 4 yr. olds love it 12/6/2008
lisa from Missouri
My kids have enough space to play independently, but still together. We really love it.
Great for the price 12/6/2008
Brooke from Indy
My 19 month old loves this kitchen! It was kind of a pain to put together- as you basically start from scratch-not hard, just time consuming. I wouldn't pay much more than I did for it, but overall, it is great for the price. I would recommend it!
Kids Love It! 12/6/2008
Janae from Salt Lake City, Utah
Was a little skeptical of this kitchen, but the price was right. Because of another review, I knew ahead of time that this kitchen was going take quite a bit of time to put together. It probably took 4-5 hours of my time, not consecutive to finish the task. Sand paper was essential to get rid of all the sharp edges. In the end, everything looks and works perfectly! The kids play with it nearly every day. Suprisingly, my 14 month loves it best. She really enjoys standing on her little chair (not included) and taking things in and out of the microwave. I really like the fact that it forces my two kids to work together and share. No small feat for a 1 and 2 year old!
My children love it 12/6/2008
tammy from small town in Wisconsin
There was alot to assemble. Some parts of the instructions were hard to follow. It fits great in a corner, which is about the only space we have for it in the playroom. All the kids love to play with it even my 10 year old.
The product was smaller than thought from website. 12/6/2008
Lyne from Quincy,IL
My son was somewhat happy with it but was smaller than thought from website and instructions were wrong.
Average kitchen center 12/6/2008
Andrea from Central Pennsylvania
My 2 year old son is still playing with this kitchen. He says he loves it, but from a parents perspective the quality was not as good as expected. The plastic is thin and I had to cut off pieces around the cooking items to make the edges smooth. It also took over an hour to put together.
my 15 month old grandson loves it!! 12/6/2008
Darlene from NH
My grand children all love playing with kitchen sets! It fit perfectly in the corner of my daughters new home!
Great Value 12/6/2008
Jennifer from Louisiana
The kitchen set is a great buy. The girls has had hours of fun with it. It had held up to their rough playing. The only thing I did not like is you have to put it together. It took a couple of hours but it was not hard.
Too many parts to assemble 12/6/2008
erin from Rhode Island
My daughter loves the kitchen set, however, there were too many parts to assemble. It took hours to put it together.
My 3 year old son loved it! 12/6/2008
Shawna from Memphis, TN
My son loved this kitchen, he wanted a kitchen and this one is great. Unlike many of the kitchens for kids it is made in gender neutral colors. Also of them cater to little girls. My only complaint was there are a lot of pieces to put together. It took about 2 hours to assemble the kitchen, it wasn't hard at all just time consuming. But well worth it him and and his big sister have been cooking up a storm since Christmas.
Great for the price! 12/6/2008
Amy from Texas
When I took the millions of pieces out of the box, it looked overwhelming but the family was around after Christmas to help put it together. It wood help if you had about 3 adults helping you put it together and wire clippers to easly snip the pieces apart.
Too long to put together 12/6/2008
Evelyn from New York
They toy is great once put together. I think in the future I would spend more for One that is already put tigether. 5 hours was way too much time spent on putting this together.
pleasantly surprised 12/6/2008
Kelly from Atlanta
I was a little reticent to make a purchase like this (Santa's big present) without being able to see it in person, so I am taking the time to write a review. It does take a good 4 hours to assemble, no exaggeration! It was fun for me 1 hour per day while kids were napping. Easy directions. It fits behind a door in the corner. We added mini press on lights under the microwave & roof of oven to great effect. Very lightweight, can fall over, kids figure it out quickly. I love how plain it is, but it has everything. Girls are enjoying it daily (1.5 & 3.5yrs.).
My 3-year-old loved it! 12/6/2008
mikelle from michigan
The kitchen is perfect for 3&4 year olds. The price was great, but the quality not as good as expected. Some of the doors on the kitchen are hard to open especially for little ones.
My twins loved it! 12/6/2008
Elina from Flushing, NY
Very easy to assembled it! and also very realistic they loved it!!!
My 3 yr old loves to play house so it works 12/6/2008
Meloney from Delaware the small wonder
WAY to many parts!!! This was Dad's entire Christmas day project and half of the next day!! If you are looking for easy, forget about it, this is not the buy for you!!
She Loves it! 12/6/2008
Carissa from Metro-Detroit, Michigan
We bought this kitchen set for my daughters 2nd birthday. She just loves all the compartments to put things in, cooking us dinner and talking on the phone. The kitchen seems to be very durable. We have had this kitchen set for 3 months now and have not had any problems with it. I would recommend this kitchen for a 2 year old.
Not as Good as Expected 12/6/2008
Jessica from NY
My daughter has fun using the kitchen. But, the doors are a little hard to open.
