"Santa" brought this play kitchen to my daughter when she was 3 years old. She is now 5 years old and still plays with it every day. I love how it blends with our home decor. My only complaint is that the chalk board sign broke off within the first week of her having the kitchen. The parts weren't repairable. I've had a challenging time trying to "fix it", as well as get a replacement.
After researching several play kitchens, we knew we wanted wood. We knew we wanted a small footprint, but didn't want to skimp on any of the features. We decided on this one. It includes a phone, turning microwave, ice maker & refrigerator, removable sink with turning handles, an oven with removable tray, 2-burner stove top, and a LOT of room to store things. This is the top reason I prefer the wood play kitchens over the plastic--the extra room for storage, plus they just look nicer. The removable sink is nice to put a small amount of water and suds for play just be sure to dry immediately following play. Only down side is with frequent play the microwave turntable will need retightened as will the sink knobs--which is a good thing--means the little ones are playing with it!! I would purchase this and other KidKraft items (we have several) again as they stand behind products, have great costumer service.
My daughter loves playing with her new kitchen! My son and and my daughter can go hours at a time playing. Very realistic and better than plastic kitchens. A little small but still worth it.
