This was an ideal kitchen set for my 2-year old daughter who is just getting into pretend-play and loves to mimic us. I love how this kitchen set has all the major components of a kitchen that she's familiar with. The overall structure is sturdy, and the doors close tightly. The only drawback is that the paint around the corners either came off easily during assembly, which was quite laborious, or it chipped during the shipping process. Either way, the paint seems to come off easily, so it would have been nice if it came with some touch-up paint.

The tube doesn't stay on well. My grandson is 2 and there's not much room for him to stand up. i wish I would have gotten him something else.

My 4year old wanted a dress up trunk for Christmas. I came across this on Overstock and purchased it because Amazon had the same thing but twice as much. The trunk is very flimsy. my 2 year old son sat on it and it collapsed. The tutus were thin and you can see through it clearly because it was only 1 layer of fabric. The tops fit my daughter very snugly. The shoes were tiny and didnt fit at all. Overall, its an Okay box. I would not pay $30 for this if I had time to search else where for dress up trunks.

This dress up trunk was great. I bought 2 sets and both little girls loved it. It has a variety of items and keeps the girls very entertained. The pieces are also easy to put on by little hands. It was offered at a very good price by Overstock, also. I would highly recommend this set.

We got this product for our 2-year-old. We put it together Christmas Eve and did not plan on spending 2.5 hours putting it together. I figured it would take an hour, tops. That was really the only down-side to the purchase. My daughter loves it and has been cooking up a storm! :)

This was the best present ever for our 2 year old grandaughter. She wears the clothes daily.

My 4 year old wanted a Clemson uniform for play. The helmet and jersey are great. There are 2 negatives: the stripe down the side of the football pants is a really weird fluorescent sherbet orange rather than a true orange that matches anything Clemson. Secondly, the 3 Pieces are loose in the box it arrived in... So be aware If u are giving this as a gift, it lacks in presentation!

Great gift for a toddler who is into "dressing up". Bought it for my 2 year old niece and she loves it

The Raider uniform was a big hit on Christmas morning. Our grandson enjoyed dressing up and since he is 2 years old, the uniform will fit for a few more years of play.

our granddaughter is only 2 1/2 but she loved everything. Pretty poorly constructed but for the price provides the princess aura that every little girl seems to want....between that and the talking throne and castle we were the ling and quwwn for sure!

My little 2-1/2 year old granddaughter is fascinated with firetrucks and firemen. When I came across this fireman's outfit for kids, while Christmas shopping online for play clothes for her, I thought she would love this! It was a little pricey, but I saw that it was made by Melissa and Doug, and I know my daughter really likes the toys she has purchased from them, so I took the chance and bought one. Let me just say that the gift was a BIG hit!! She got many presents for Christmas, but once she saw the fireman's outfit, she put it on immediately and hardly took it off. If your little one likes firetrucks and firemen...get this product! It appears to be well-made and I see many hours of fun ahead playing with this for our little granddaughter.

I purchased this because a friend of mine had a kitchens set for their daughter. I have a son and wanted to buy something gender neutral. What I didn't realize is that all the pots and pans are so light weight (unlike the one my friend has) that a slight, and I mean slight, shake on the unit makes the pots and pans fall of the "cooktop". Hey, you get what you paid for and for the value, this is not bad. My son still plays with it once in a while and its still standing. I would recommend that if your child really enjoys kitchen pretend play to buy a more sturdy unit. I will say that the shipping process was definitely an experience. I was fully anticipating this to show up at my house within 10 -15 days but got shipping notification immediately. So I started to track the package. On the day of delivery, I received a notification that the package was on the truck. Then 2 hrs later, it was delivered.....to a different state. Bizzare. Even the customer service department couldn't explain it to me and finally sent out another one only for me to receive the original order so I had to call again to cancel the replacement order.

I bought this for my 2 1/2 year old step daughter for Christmas last year, and she still uses it. The cardboard chest that the clothes come in actually lasted until recently, and the kids in our house are quite hard on stuff. There is a good variety of dress up clothes, shoes and jewelry in the case, so you can make lots of outfit combinations. It's a fun gift for a little girl. I wish they made something comparable for little boys that contained costumes for a pirate, policeman, cowboy, fireman, etc.

I bought these for my son with his Christmas money. It took a few days for them to ship and come in. Got here relatively fast after shipping. I took it out immediately after it arrived. My son was very excited. The first thing I noticed upon unpacking, the bars are made of a flimsy type of plastic. I wasn't to worried as long as they'd hold up. I put it all together and tossed the blanket over the fort. The plastic bars came out of the connecters. It didn't matter how hard I pushed the bars in or switching the connecters around, they always popped out. I then decided to let my son play with it without the blanket. The bars would pop off when he'd crawl into the fort. It didn't hold up to the slightest of movements. The ends of the plastic bars also started to chip away after popping out 2-3 times. The directions were easy to handle. The packaging was well. However the product itself cannot hold up to movement hitting the bars which isn't ideal for a children's playtime toy.

a little disappointing. The "trunk" is a glossy cardboard - very tiny. The dress up clothes were just "ok". I guess in the mind of a 3 or 4 year old it could be all ok - that's what I told myself when thinking of returning it. I went out and bought 2 more pair of play shoes/heels, I thought this would be important and the trunk only came with 1 pair.

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!

i brought this chest for my 2 year old son. when it arrived the wood around the nails connected to the lid was damaged causing the nails to hang out and making assembly impossible. i ended up having to use wood glue and fixing it myself. other than that assembly was quick and easy. its not the biggest and deepest chest in the world, but i guess i should have checked that before i bought it.

I bought this dress up trunk last year for my 2 year old.. 12-11-10, she still has the clothes and they still fit her and they have been washed and dryed over and over and are still holding up. great for the money, good material and it lasts. very cute and people who buy dress up know that the clothes never last this one did!

What can I say? No surprises. It's a good quality toddler sized indoor play tent. My girls loved it for about 2 days. The tent is so extremely simple to set up & put away that our plan is to pull it out for about two days each month. It's a fair price for what your'e getting. I recommend letting it air out outdoors for a few hours the first time you open it up. The off-gassing is a bit much. No complaints. Performs as indicated.
