Once in a while a toy comes along whose assembly is almost as much fun as the hours of play your child will enjoy with it.
This is not one of those toys.
Mentally prepare yourself for one of the least intuitive assemblies you will ever experience for a toy aimed at young children.
You'll be fishing for screw drivers of multiple, unspecified sizes, drilling holes at odd angles into plastic in which no accommodations for holes have been made.
Once you've assembled the major components the real "fun" begins as you hunt through a variety of bags of insanely scattered kitchen accessories.
EVERYTHING REQUIRES ASSEMBLY. You'll be building salt shakers, and a bariety of hard plastic bottles, and just as you are ready to fall to pieces over all these pieces you'll start screaming angrily as you try to locate the tops and bottoms of coffee pods that most certainly should have been one piece.
All of this is just foreplay for the decals though.
Confusing placement on the various sheets?
Check!
So difficult to line up on a fully assembled kithen, that you'll wonder why the sadistic bastards at Step2 didnt make them the first step?
Check!!!
Made in such a way that you will definitely pull off the paper instead of the sticker, crunch stickers in an attempt to free them, and eventually split one in half when you don't realize a microscopic piece of sticker wasn't properly cut???
SWEET SOUNDS OF CHAOS CHECK ONE TWO!!!

This toy was such a pain in the rear to build, I am legitimately concerned about loving my child less if they are not thrilled with this toy tomorrow.


We’ve wanted this for our child for the longest time! We got it here for a GREAT price (84.99) THE CHEAPEST ANYWHERE ONLINE & IN-STORE! VERY PLEASED!!!

Arrived on time, box was not damaged.

The kitchen comes in 3 big pieces, and are simple to assemble (there are NO holes for the screws, just ‘indentions’ where the screw needs to be)

All the small pieces, and stickers were all in the box undamaged.

For us, we enjoyed putting it together, it was simple! It did take us 1 hour to complete, but we took our time, and there was 2 of us.
I mostly like this for the size (width/2 "sides") but wish these things came DOUBLE SIDED (like the backside is just flat- add something else! A table or another cooking area or a little house thing like a baby bed or washing machine - whatever.. SOMEONE MAKES THIS!) . AND also i loved the storage containers included & the cooking noises.

Pro's:
Very easy to follow directions.
Easy to re-apply stickers if a little off.
Great sound features on the stove (the pot makes a bubble sound and the pan makes a frying sound. The salt and pepper shakers are fun for younger ones due to little clicking noise when turn back and forth. the 2 knobs make a clicking noise as well.)
The sink is deep enough for a few items, the water nob moves (as pictured, it is about 2" deep)
It comes with super cute VERY durable cookware/Dinnerware.
The "kurig" station is funny (for me) but a little kettle fits just fine for Tea Party. It comes with starbucks knockoff green coffee sleeves and lids that fit the cups.
The size is great: Like the Headline - my 1 year old loves it, it was for my 3 year old, but my 7 year old also plays well! It is tall enough to detour climbing, it is short enough for all ages to play well. I like the width of it for multiple kid playing and not fighting over things. I like that the open/shut doors are on the bottom half (reachable, also if on top, kids like to hang or pull on them which may lead to injury). (Photo with 16mo old)
Cute colors, great material. I like the "copper" colors of cookware.
We LOVE the 2 little storage buckets for storage (they fit in their area. Photo'd is how big they are, and in relation to how deep the oven is)
The oven and microwave are deep. (Photo'd i put in a bucket in 1 and a plate in the other)
We also LOVE the puppy (or kitten!) area. The animal can sit in the cubby! (the same depth as the bucket) and the little food/water bowl is adorable. This works well for my animal loving kids since momma doesn't want indoor pets. (PS the red dog is from ALDI for like $7 - you can sit and bounce on it - up to 250lbs. wow!)
Cons:
MUST USE DRILL if you want to save time on putting this together. (i read reviews and had my husband do this as I read the directions to him. Not a ton of screws but enough to make it sturdy (not just all snap together plastic molly screws - which is a PRO, not a con, oops!)
Speaking of screws.. the backside on the left and right you have to screw in at a 45 degree angle per instructions and it makes a little edge still there on the screw. Not sharp but could grab a kid's shirt or something. We just have the backside against our coffee table or if you put it against a wall or window it wouldn't matter. (Photo of this)
The refrigerator door opens maybe 2" and sort of snaps back shut. So that part is not useful.

Other: We already had a TON of play food so i am sort of glad this one didn't come with more.
I was worried that my tall three year old would be too big to play with this kitchen but I needn't have worried- it is the perfect size. It took me 25ish minutes to assemble it with a hand screwdriver. It took just as long to apply the stickers. Best of all he loves it; especially the coffee maker
So be carful with little ones. My daughter decided to put water in one of the pots and it leaked through to the electronic stove. I smelt something burning and opened it up to find the battery burning. Recommend the pots dont have holes for this exact reason if children take their sippy cups and want to add water to the pots it won’t leak through to the electric components.
I purchased a Minnie Mouse kitchen for my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter for Christmas and she loves it. She left it at my house for several months while the house she and her family lived in was on the market to be sold. When they moved into their bigger home, she took her kitchen. Now she misses having one at my house so I started hunting for another one.
This Step 2 kitchen fits the bill perfectly. It was easy to put together and I really don't understand why so many people complained about the one they received. It took a 70 year old Nana less than 50 minutes to completely put the kitchen together-stickers and all. Actually, it took longer to put on the stickers than it did to put the three pieces together.
I know Aubrey will love the "cooking" sounds the burner makes and she will love making us coffee using the pods. This little kitchen is so realistic, she will think she is a little chief immediately.
