    Muy bonita cocina, el color divino como turquesa. Se arma fácil aunque si nuca haces ese tipo de cosas si puedes tardar como 3 horas, pero se entiende super bien el manual. La altura siento que esta perfecta para niños de 2 a 4 años. Muy buena calidad. Le encantó a mi bebé de 2 años. Buena compra. Además la encontré super rebajada…

    *If you have a question I didn’t address here, please comment. I can usually reply within 24 hours!*

    I will try to keep this review short, however, I want to be sure I cover everything. First, I have to say that any “negative” is SO WORTH IT for his product. That’s why I gave it 5 stars. But I WILL be covering what some of the struggles are with it along with some things I think could have taken it to the next level.

    COLOR
    The color on my screen matched the color of the product I received. Of course, screen settings may vary, but you are going to get an aqua/robin’s egg blue shade. It’s not a “simple light blue”. There is a nuance to this color that gives it a distinct retro feel, like there is a SLIGHT hint of mint mixed in with your light blue. It’s really just the most charming color. Ever.

    QUALITY
    These are solid-wood pieces. This was probably better quality than some of the adult furniture in my house. The paining is clean and there were only 2 small chips that are not visible when assembled that were around screw holes. The shipping packaging is well thought out to keep the item from being damaged. Have a garbage bag on hand to deal with the pesky Styrofoam, though!

    WHAT’S INCLUDED
    JUST the kitchen. No pots, pans, utensils, or play food.

    RECOMMENDATIONS FOR ACCESSORIES
    If you want some recommendations, they are as follows:
    Pots, Pans, Utensils: Melissa & Doug Let’s Play House! Pots Pans Set
    Food: Hape, Playfully Delicious Garden Salad set, Hape Playfully Delicious Hamburger and Hot Dogs, Learning Resources New Sprouts sets (we did Health Dinner, Healthy Lunch, and Healthy Breakfast), Learning Resources New Sprouts Waffle Time, Plan Toys Breakfast Menu.
    Dress Up: KidKraft Tasty Treats Chef Accessory Set

    ASSEMBLY
    This is a time-consuming task. I really doubt it can be assembled in an hour, but hey, maybe you are faster than me. This took me 2 hours, maybe 3? At first I was thinking, this is pretty easy, but as you go on, you start to be like… what the heck? Suddenly you need different kind of pieces, and it’s jarring. But those pieces are absolutely needed and could not have been replaced with anything else that I can think of. Keep in mind, there are NO written directions. Pictures only.

    I did encounter a few problems with assembly. Some were my fault.

    Problem 1) Although I started at image 1 for about 10 minutes, trying to be sure I had the board facing the right direction and the was putting the plastic piece on correctly, it wasn’t until near the end when I was attaching that piece to another bigger piece that I realized I actually put the plastic piece on the wrong side of the wood! Not only that, but when I was first assembling, I wasn’t sure if they wanted me to screw from both sides, as there were what looks like more than one set of screw holes on the plastic. So I tried screwing from both sides, couldn’t, and as a result, when it ended up being on the “wrong” side, and I moved it to the correct side, you could see two spots where I ruined the wood. So, here’s what you need to know: At no point do you need to screw a hole into the wood. All the holes you need area already there. I’ve assembled a lot of furniture and sometimes you DO need to screw the wood yourself in certain spots, so this was the cause of my confusion.

    Problem 2) Getting the “legs” of the kitchen on takes some serious man hands! I have bruises on my hand from the task. It was VERY resistant, an perhaps one of the most frustrating and time consuming tasks in putting this together. I actually had doubts I could even get the back legs on correctly because it seemed impossible for my hand to push that allen wrench while holding the leg still despite the resistance for the screw to go in. But alas, I did it. It sucked, but I did it.

    Tip 1: At one point, you need to screw these little clip things on. “R” I think. The first time or two, you only need one clip. So I didn’t notice as I went on that some of the pieces require this clip on either side. So when I caught on, I had to unscrew and redo.

    Tip 2: Make sure that when you put the little “nuts” on that you put the wrenchable-side flush against the wood. This will make it easier to hold the nuts still while you screw in the bolts for those pieces. For some reason, I was putting them on upside down at first, which made things more complicated than they needed to be…

    Tip 3: Have someone help you put on the doors. It makes things a thousand times easier. My 6 year old with autism helped me.

    Maybe you have more brain cells than I do and my problems never would have been a problem for you. But if, like me, you have “mommy brain” and aren’t always working at full capacity, these tips may save you a few troubles.

    FEATURES
    The doors “snap” open and closed; I like that they can be securely shut but without needing too much force to open. Seems they found the sweet spot in this delicate balance.
    The product comes with an anchoring kit so that you can anchor this safely to your wall, if you so choose.
    “Spinnable” microwave.
    Removable “baking tray” in the oven.
    Stove/Oven knobs “click” when you turn them.
    Phone with “cradle” … this is my 2 year old’s favorite part so far. She keeps picking up the phone and “babbling”… which is pretty amazing since she is speech delayed and doesn’t babble normally 🙂

    SIZE
    It wouldn’t hurt if it was a TAD taller to prolong the length of time (age wise) it can be played with standing, however, it’s really a great size for a 2-4 year old, and beyond that, kids can either hunch over a little or sit up on their knees to play. This is what my 8 year old has been doing. Our 2 year old is the perfect height for this. It’s on par with the height/size of most play kitchens.

    STORAGE
    I was hoping I would be able to store more in the fridge and cabinets, but overall, I can store a few things at a time. For example, I keep the salad kit on one shelf, and the waffle kit on another. Then I have room at the bottom that I could probably stack 2 baskets filled of things. There’s another cabinet under the sink where I keep utensils, and in the “open cabinet” under that I keep the apron and chef’s hat. I would recommend getting some small baskets (measure to see which size would fit best) so that you can store the playfood in the basket inside the fridge. Or get a container to keep all the playfood in. You can also store a small bowl of fake fruit next the microwave, as you see in the stock image. Finally, we keep the Melissa and Doug pots and pan set above the fridge, and then a toaster and mixer above the microwave/shelf.

    IDEAS FOR IMPROVEMENT
    I would LOVE to see them upgrade the fridge to have a fake ice dispenser. We almost got a different set that had this feature, and that was really the only thing that almost swayed our decision. I think we like this one more than we would have liked that one, but it was hard to let go of the ice dispenser, which seemed like such a fun idea. It dispensed wooden ice cubes. Anyway, if they DO make this upgrade, PLEASE (please please please) a) make it fit into the current “drink dispenser” location b) offer it for sale separately so people who want to upgrade can do so affordably c) send out an email to those who have purchased this so they know it’s available. Seriously, if they added that, this would be BEYOND perfect!

    OVERALL
    We are extremely pleased with our purchase and the kids LOVE it–and that is the most important thing. I think this is one of the best purchases we’ve ever made. Also, my husband saw it and assumed I must have spent “at least 300 on it” and didn’t believe me the price was half that until I showed him the product on Amazon. It’s really an impressive toy!

    Absolutely adorable. My 18 month old loves it. It looks so nice in her room, much more expensive than what I paid for it. It’s definitely more of an aqua color which is what I wanted. It is the perfect size for her now, but I think older kids >3 years old may be too tall for this. I am glad it’s on the smaller side so that it doesn’t take up so much space in her room. The kitchen seems sturdy and well-made, but should definitely be anchored to the wall using the included hardware for safety. Some people stated the catches on the doors make it hard for younger kids to open them. This is not the case for us. The catches make the doors snap shut which is very satisfying for my daughter who is currently obsessed with opening and closing things. I’m not sure why there is no catch on the microwave door, it kind of stays ajar. The kitchen was packed well, no damage to any of the pieces.

    My husband started the assembly process on his own, and got pretty frustrated. The first steps involve a lot of tedious steps such as screwing on hinges and attaching the plastic pieces to the wood. He said those steps would have been much easier with a second set of hands. Once I got home and was able to help him, the assembly went pretty quickly. Neither of us are particularly handy and we managed to get it together.
    As mentioned in other reviews, a magnetic screwdriver and drill would be helpful, but we did without. We did use sandwich baggies and a marker to label the hardware. KidKraft generously includes extra hardware labeled as such. Make sure you pay attention to which screws you are supposed to be using. The color-matched ones are for the ones that will be visible on the exterior of the kitchen. We had to swap out a few screws at the end due to some of the non-colored screws being visible. The assembly instructions are diagrams only. Most of the pieces are numbered and the hardware is labeled by letters. The hardest part was that some diagrams are a bit ambiguous and so you have to be careful that you have the pieces facing the correct way. Again, this is where having two people is helpful.

    Overall, I’m glad I bought this.

    My son loves this. It took me a very long time to put together. The sink bowl lost its shiny silver paint real quick and looks kinda yucky now, but otherwise this is a great little kitchen and I’m happy with the purchase. My son was 1.5 when we bought this and he’s now almost 2.5 and loves it just as much as day one. It was worth the price because I know it will be played with for at least a few more years and with the quality, I’m sure I will be able to donate it once we’re done with it. Or resell it, of course. The only thing I would say to be wary of is the size, it ended up being much smaller than I expected. But that wasn’t a bad thing in my small apt.

    The build quality of the wood and hardware is superb. I can see this holding up over many years. The picture online doesn’t do this product justice. It looks very cute in our 1yr daughters room. She can’t get enough of this thing. I thought she would play with it only once or twice until it become a decoration. The older kids in our house have enjoyed playing with it as well.

    If you are looking for something based on the appearance, which I was, this is absolutely darling! The blue is a sweet vintage-looking pastel powdery blue (not quite true to advertised image) and fits in well with my vintage home. However, part of the reason it fits in so well is because it is tiny! I bought this for my two year old granddaughter and it fits her (average two year old height -see photos) perfectly. I imagine it won’t be long before she grows out of it, but for the time being it is precious!
    It wasn’t necessarily difficult to put together, just tedious. This ain’t our first time to the rodeo and it still took me and my husband about two hours to complete. But all the pieces were there plus extras and it all fit together eventually. However, the doors don’t line up very well and as a result they need a little finessing to latch.
    Nonetheless, the little one loves it and all the places to hide things. Funny side note, we had to show her what to do with the old school phone. Slams it down like a pro now 🙂 Over all we really like it and are satisfied with he purchase.

    La cocina es de muy buena calidad, es de madera y como muchos mencionan el armado no es complicado pero si es tardado, a mi hija le encanta y siempre juega con la cocina, la recomiendo ampliamente ya que la calidad es bastante buena

    Super completa y duradera. Muy detallada y resistente. Las crías se lo pasan genial con ella. La compré hace dos años y a día de hoy está como nueva y eso que son unos terremotos. La única pega es que me llevo unas cuatro horas montarla por la cantidad de piezas que tiene, pero las instrucciones están muy detalladas. Muy contento con la compra.
