Rated 5 out of 5Â by GregK62 My granddaughter loves it. She spends an hour a day at least playing in her kitchen. Construction appears solid. Finish is good, and it assembled quite easily, though the number of pieces appeared a bit overwhelming at first.
The only slight design flaw is that a few of the screws used to assemble it are exposed on the top surface, which detracts a little from the appearance, though certainly not from her enjoyment of it. The "oven" door also is hinged to opens sideways, which is a good thing since it avoids the need for a spring of some sort that would eventually break.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Benji's Mom High quality, beautiful and simple
This kitchen is fantastic. I bought it for my 3 y.o. son for Christmas and he LOVED it. I love that it is very gender neutral and constructed of real wood. The fridge/cabinet and oven are very roomy. The burners and sink are generously sized. The only thing I didn't like is that the timer is rather cheap and doesn't always ring. I put it together in about an hour on Christmas eve, but I was working slowly. The instructions are excellent, very clear, step-by-step pictoral diagrams. Every different type of part and screw is indiviually packaged and numbered or lettered so they don't get mixed up.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by FTWORTHGAL Great Kitchen for Boys!
My 2 1/2 year old received this for Christmas. My husband was not thrilled with the idea of our son getting a kitchen, but its actually very simple and as boy as it can get - durable, simple colors, etc. He really enjoys it thus far. I do wish it had a bit more to entertain on it like some of the others have or come with pots and pans or something else, but at least you can purchase. However; no Melissa and Doug sets are just pots, pans, oven mitt, and utensils. They need to offer that in my opinion. :) Otherwise, a great buy and easy to ensemble.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by wismom12 Great style for a boy too
I bought this for my 2 1/2 year old son for Christmas. He loves it! I love the colors and the style, especially since we are keeping it in our living room and it is not taking up very much room. I love the fact that it is wooden because I am planning on hanging a little towel rack on one side and little hooks for the pots and pans on the other side. My husband and I put the kitchen together in about 1 hr without any major issues. I don't know if my son is too rough or if it the plastic is fragile, but the clickers in the stove knobs and the timer broke. However, a quick call to Melissa and Doug customer service and I am getting replacements...no waiting on the phone, just gave name, address, phone and they said they would send them out free of charge. Overall, very happy with this purchase.
