Top customer reviews
-WalMart has an almost identical kitchen for a little less but it does not have the electronic keypads on the microwave and oven, they are just decals
-the Step 2 website had the best price for a while with free shipping
I waited a bit and got a great deal($30 less than currently advertised. It arrived very quickly, sooner than promised!
A few notes
-do be careful in applying decals, but you can pull them off and try again while in the application process
-there are not pre-drilled holes(I believe I had read some reviewers complaining Step 2 "forgot" to do this)nor are there supposed to be. You screw in the hardware with just a regular screwdriver in order to ensure a snug fit
-took my husband and I around an hour to assemble
-microwave keypad was broken and a small screw broke during assembly on the oven keypad. However, called Step 2(super friendly)and they promptly sent out replacements for both at no cost to us.
My daughter LOVES the kitchen and has already played with it everyday! She really enjoys the "sizzle" and "bubble" effects on the stove. I really like that there is storage space for her play food and other accessories.
Our daughter loves this kitchen and surprisingly keeps all the parts in their places when she's done with it. She just adores it and it was the best christmas gift ever... well worth it.
Building it was fairly easy, of course I assembled it long before he received it, so I didn't have to worry about the audience. It took about an hour to get all done, the only issue I ran into was that the stove burner requires a long handle screwdriver, not a ratcheting style, in order to reach the battery screws.
A few other people mentioned the oven door. I can see how that would be an issue, but with us, he is the youngest and there are 7 years between the boys, so i'm not too worried about that. The little silverwARE drawer holds just a few toy utensils, but is a cool feature that I haven't seen on any other kitchens other than Step 2.
My son loves putting stuff into the microwave and hitting the buttons. We have a relatively small house, and this kitchen does not take up too much space, and there is so much storage room inside of it, all our food stuff fits right inside! I figured out that a quart sized chineese food container fits into the lower cabinet to hold all the loose 'prepared' food, and the ziploc rectangular take and toss bowls fit into the fridge pretty well.
I did buy the step 2 food set as well, after researching and comparing and going absolutely batty, I am glad to say that I am very pleased with my purchase! I am excited to see how my son grows into his toy that will, after all, be a semi permanent fixture in my living room for years to come!
My review is pretty positive but there were a few things that I would mention (that are also mentioned in other reviews):
1) I did need a drill. There were a few holes not drilled all the way thru. Not a huge deal but a bit annoying.
2) The screw to open the battery case on the phone was competely stripped. That was a bit frustrating HOWEVER, I called Step2 customer service the next morning and they shipped me a new one with no hassle. I ordered it on Thurs. morning and it arrived today (Monday). Frustrating that the phone was defective but the ease of resolution of the problem made up for that.
3) There were definitely elements that Step2 could have assembled before packaging. Again, not a huge deal but annoying
4) It would be nice if it came with more extras (like food). That would probably help off set the price point and make it seem more worth the money.
Overall we are very happy with this purchase. It probably is a bit over-priced. We got it for $79.99. I think it would probably be better priced at around $50-$60. However, after looking at what else is out there and those price points the cheaper kitchens are definitely cheaper kitchens. This is a nice middle of the road option.
