A few years ago we were in search of a toy kitchen for our daughter. We don’t have a huge house, and the kids already had a lot of items for Christmas so we didn’t want to spend a lot of money. We were at Walmart and stumbled upon this kitchen. We decided to purchase it and figured if she liked it and used it we could always upgrade in a year or two.
Well we still have that kitchen and our 4 year old still uses it. If you are on a budget I would definately consider this kitchen.
Here is what Walmart has to say about the product:
Cook up some fun with the American Plastics Homestyle Kitchen Play Set. This play set features a realistic child-sized countertop with light-up burners and a “ticking” timer with bell. When pots and pans are placed on the burners, the play set activates bubbling and sizzling sounds. There are seven reinforced doors on the refrigerator, oven, microwave and several cupboards, adding a sense of organization and allowing for hours of play. Other features include a sink with a removable sprayer-faucet, storage shelves and a play microwave.
Kitchen measures 34″ x 37½”
6 eating utensils (2 spoons, 2 knives, 2 forks)
1 cell phone
2 drinking glasses
2 cooking utensils
3 casserole dishes
2 lids for casserole dishes
1 lid for pot
1 measurement cup
Requires 2 “AA” batteries (not included)
There are only 2 negatives about this kitchen. One is the assembly time and the other is that our oven door rarely stays closed.
If you choose to purchase this kitchen allow yourself plenty of time to put it together. All the pieces are still attached to the plastic molds, so you have to break off or cut all the utensils, plates etc in addition to the kitchen itself. To prevent the oven door from falling open be sure not to trim too much around the door or oven opening.
* This is my personal opinion for a product that we bought at a retail outlet. I have not been paid or received any other incentives to write this review.
