  1. Piece of junk!
    Rating:1 out of 5 stars
    This is the worst quality you can imagine and very cheap. I guess it is worth the $30 price tag but just barely. My child received this as a birthday gift and if it hadnt been given to us I would have returned it. It took FOREVER to assemble and it is so flimy that it barely stands. It is much smaller than the photos and would be way too small for a 3-5 year old. My child is only 1 year and they are about the same height. Also, the entire thing is on plastic sheets and you have to pop out the parts. It is difficult to seperate the pieces and there are sharp plastic edges that have to be sanded down for safety purposes. My child scratched himself on a sharp edge of a plate so we just threw all the dishes away and used some we already had. If you really want a play kitchen and you can’t afford anything better then this will do…. I guess.

  2. My Very own kitchen

    Fun for children of all ages. I’ve had some very good meals from this play kitchen.

  3. So far, very pleased
    Rating:4 out of 5 stars
    We got this as a present (different color) and my kids love it. My kids are 3 and 2, and they are both taller than the kitchen. This doesn’t bother them in the least. I got them some toy food, and the kitchen gets used daily.

    Pros and cons:

    Pros-

    1. The toy is small- it fits perfectly in my small toy room. Many people complain about the size, but this kitchen is a great choice if you have limited space. Children are usually ok with playing with smaller toys. It’s the parents who feel the need to buy big. I hate having my house cluttered with toys, and I like that my kids have enough space to move around the kitchen.

    2. It includes utensils and dishes. I bought my kids toy food, but half the time they cook smaller unrelated toys anyway. I have been served fried train many times since we got this toy. Everything other than the food is included.

    3. All the utensils and dishes have their own storage space. There is a cute little dishrack, hooks for the frying pans and serving utensils, and a useful cabinet.

    Cons-

    1. It takes a while to assemble. I enjoy putting things together, but I can see hiring a handyman to deal with it.

    2. It’s made of thinner plastic than the more expensive models are. But you get what you pay for.

    3. It’s very light, and the kids tip it over on top of themselves occasionally. It’s not dangerous or anything, but the kids get upset.

  4. Cheaply Made
    Rating:2 out of 5 stars
    My 2 year old daughter received this as a gift from my in-laws. I appreciate the fact that it is made in America, but it seems cheaply made. My daughter has not played with it yet, but I anticipate she will enjoy it very much. It took me about 3 hours to put together, twice the spot for the screws were covered by other piece3s of plastic making it extremely difficult to put together other than that it was really simple and fairly easy- the instructions were rather straight forward. But the plastic parts seem really cheap, I honestly fear that my daughter will snap them. Also, all of the parts have sharp edges where we cut them from the other parts. I tried to use sand paper to grind the sharp edges down, but sand paper didn’t do much to the plastic. I am kind of concerned that she will cut herself on those edges.

  5. Fine for young toddlers
    Rating:3 out of 5 stars
    This is appropriate for 1.5-2.5 year olds, but too small and simple for older toddlers/kids. Plus, there is no sink. But it’s nice & compact for young toddlers.

    We have a large, nicer play kitchen but got this as a Christmas present……. and I actually prefer if for my daughter at this stage in her life (almost 2) because it’s the just the right size for her, it’s very simple, and there is a hook or slot for all the accessories so that she can practice putting things away in the right place.

    We were given it assembled, so I can’t say how difficult or annoying it is to put together.

  6. Better than Expected
    Rating:3 out of 5 stars
    The manufacturer makes this same kitchen for another retailer and it comes with a toy shopping cart and play food (the colors are different, but it’s the same kitchen-and same price). The fact that I got the kitchen, shopping cart, and food for this price made it seem like a pretty decent deal to me. I was scared about all the negative reviews, but I decided I’d rather buy a cheapie kitchen now and see if my kids like it enough to justify the purchase of something more substantial. And that right there is the big reason I’d recommend it. i.e. if you’re not 100% or even 50% sure your kids will play A LOT with a toy kitchen- letting them play on this for a few months would be a great way to find out.

    It is smaller than the pricier kitchens, but if you read the dimensions before assembling- well…you’d know that ahead of time.

    As for the assebly time, I don’t understand the gripes…it’s a toy kitchen and it’s going to have a ton of pieces. 2 hrs is on par with all the toys kitchens I know of people setting up. Just try building a wooden swingset and you’ll suddenly love 2 hr assembly that makes sense.

    As for the what you get for the $- I can’t fathom why people would expect the size and quality of a $100+ kitchen when spending $25. It makes no sense to have such expectations.

    All in all, I think it was worth the $. My 1 yr old and 3 yr old really enjoy it + it doesn’t feel so small if you combine it with a cart and a play table.

  7. Unimpressed
    Rating:2 out of 5 stars
    This was given as a gift to my daughter for her 2nd birthday. We were excited to get her a kitchen and my mother-in-law asked if she could be the one to purchase one for her. Our mistake. Apparently she didn’t care to look at the reviews, only the price. It’s very small, so I guess it makes sense if you’ve got a very small play area. The oven and microwave doors practically pull the whole thing over when you try to open them. The accessories that come with it are pretty cheap (the pitcher keeps falling apart, pot lid doesn’t fit, etc.) There’s very little counter space to set the accessories on. (Side note- if you plan to purchase other accessories, beware, very few are small enough to fit nicely in compartments, on burners, etc.) I’d love to purchase one of the other kitchens on this site, but we don’t want to be rude and get rid of this thing since the in-laws visit regularly. I guess its our fault for assuming they’d pick a nice kitchen. Anyway, I’d only recommend this if you’re considering a kitchen but don’t know if the kids will care to play with it- that way you’re not out too much $$. There are much cuter and sturdier options out there. My advice is to pay attention to the reviews! :)

  8. Awful!
    Rating:1 out of 5 stars
    This toy is cheaply made, comes in pieces you have cut to put together, so buy some scissors that cut plastic. Once it’s together, after a lot of time, it falls over when the child plays with it. The pieces are sharp in places and some are little plastic knives that no child should be playing with. My granddaughter loves to play kitchen but not with this thing! It is not worth the money, not at all.

  9. Really small!
    Rating:2 out of 5 stars
    Well I guess it is my fault I didn’t read the specs and just ordered. In these economic hard times I was just thinking that the price was right. I bought this for my daughter who is 3years and 9 months and really tall for her age. When she stands at the kitchen set she towers over so she tends to use one of her chairs and sits at it.. and it’s so small she can move it from room to room by herself lol. Rather than return it and have to pay shipping and restocking fees we decdied to just keep it and let her play with it till it falls apart and then get her a better one. She’s happy with it for now and that’s what counts.

  10. Kitchen set for little ones

    We ordered this product for our granddaughter in IA. The mom approved it first and then we ordered it. One & all are pleased it with and Kennedy plays with it every day.

  11. CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP
    Rating:1 out of 5 stars
    I actually got this item at another store for only $[…]. I wanted something small and inexpensive. Well it VERY small(too small for a 3 year old) and very poorly made. It took forever to put together. All of the pieces were encased in plastic which you had to pull off, then file down any remaining plastic that remained. If you didn’t, you will get sharp plastic hanging from each and every piece. It is almost impossible to make it smooth so every piece, every surface had a small amount of plastic sticking out making it very dangerous to play with. You definately get what you paid for. CHEAP!!!

  12. It surprised me
    Rating:3 out of 5 stars
    I received this free because someone disgarded it upon opening the box. I imagine the person either was put off by the apparent quality or didn’t want to put it together. (There are a lot of pieces.) It took me awhile to get it together, but it wasn’t overly difficult. There were a few times I had to study the diagram before proceeding. I’ll admit that I thought it looked really cheap before it was assembled, but I was surprised at how sturdy it was once it was put together. I don’t have any little ones, so I will donate it to a charity now that it is together. It’s a reasonable buy at $30 because it comes complete with plates, cups silverware, and pans.

  13. good for 1 year old
    Rating:4 out of 5 stars
    We purchased this used and it was already put together – so I can’t comment on that. My daughter is almost 12 months old and loves it! She puts various toys into the mircrowave and oven and hangs things from different parts of it. We have it strapped to a railing which works well – it wouldn’t be able to stand alone (especially since she uses it to pull herself up!). I see that it costs around $30 right now – that’s probably about what it’s worth. But, for that price, it’s a great small kitchen for a little one.
