More perishable than the real thing!
on January 10, 2011
Our son received this as a Christmas gift from his grandparents per my request. When they saw it in the package upon arrival, they were very disappointed and described it as being oddly proportioned, cheaply made, and representing mostly junk food. I assumed it couldn't be that bad when the KidKraft kitchens are so nice. It was. Aside from the obvious proportion and scale issues (the watermelon is almost smaller than the strawberry for example), the quality is TERRIBLE! It was mostly destroyed by the day after Christmas, and my son is very gentle with his things. The plastic is so cheap that if it is gripped too tightly, or is accidentally sat on, leaned on, or (heaven forbid) stepped on by naturally clumsy toddlers, it is ruined! The egg, tomato, strawberry, and cans, are all concave pieces of plastic now. The paper items were ruined in a few short hours. These items are not meant to be in the hands (or under the bums) of toddlers if you expect them to maintain their shape. Very disappointing!
I guess you can say it's educational... My son now knows 4 kinds of doughnuts, the difference between crinkle cut and shoestring french fries, the difference between milk and dark chocolate, and that there are at least 5 kinds of soda. Oh, and that pie should always be larger than your fruits, veggies, and main course. NICE!
Amazon, however, is amazing and took very good care of us with this return.
