First of all OVERSTOCK sent me a product THAT WAS A RETURN! The kitchen had DOG HAIR IN THE BOX. This kitchen set was not used since all the parts were still connected together. There was a label of the person it was originally shipped to on the box and lightly scribbled out the name. This was really annoying and I WILL NEVER PURCHASE FROM OVERSTOCK AGAIN because of this. Otherwise the kitchen was okay. The doors keep opening up and hitting by daughter when she is sitting down playing with the drawers at the bottom (be sure to snip all the parts evenly so you don't have pieces on the edges). This causes the doors to not close. We have to remove some extra edges on our kitchen set.
Bought this for my daughter a few Christmases ago and she still plays with it. The only negative I could think of was I had to take a day off of work to put this thing together since there are SOOOOO many pieces that you have to snap off of plastic cut-out sheets. Very time consuming, but it holds up well!
I got this for my 1 and a half year old daughter and she loves this kitchen. It was easy to setup especially coming from me who doesn't know how to do all that stuff. I got it sooner than it said like 2 days sooner. The packaging did bend some of the pieces but after a while it went back to being straight. other than that its an awesome gift for a little girl.
For the price this is just what we were looking for. Baby girl turns 2 in September and loves to "help" with kitchen stuff so this should make her birthday. Other reviews indicate a lot of pieces to put together, but the end result should give her lots of enjoyment working in "her" kitchen.
The product is pretty to look at and it has several little kitchen accesories to play with. However, it is cheaply made and is nothing like the kitchen sets from the 1990s. It is NOT duralble. The plastic is so thin, a hot day could melt it. I really wish I coul dfind an old school Little Tikes kitchen set made of that hard durable plastic instead of this new aged thin stuff.
When the box arrived it was banged up and open. I was skeptical as to if all the pieces were there. After carefully removing all the contents and going over the parts list it was all there and nothing broken or lost. Putting it together was not a simple as it appeared.You must follow the directions exactly! Do not skip ahead or you will be taking it apart and stating over. All the pieces are plastic and on a grid of parts and lettered. It goes together more smoothly if you try to remove all the plastic connectors. The doors to the appliances will close better. I used an assortment of small clippers to get off the nubs. Scissors won't do it. It is plastic and we will have to see how long it holds up to an active 2 yr old. If she is still into it we will invest in something larger and better made. All in all my grand daughter loved it as well as her older siblings. She gets a big kick out of the boiling water/ sizzling sounds of the burners. Certainly a chef in the making!
Was so impressed, ordered this on a Thursday and it arrived two days later (day of the party) which I did not expect. Very impressive! However, the box was damaged in the upper right front corner and was taped closed. Thankfully there was no damage to the contents! Thank you Overstock, excellent delivery time. **
