Step 2 has a fantastic selection of toys that I am confident will keep Evan's attention. They are the nation's largest toddler toy manufacturer and marketer of high quality plastic products. Step 2 strives to create amazing products that will be enjoyed for years.
Step 2 sent us their LifeStyle Grand Walk-In Kitchen.
The LifeStyle Grand Walk-In Kitchen is 47.00H 36.25L 46.00W in size and weighs 60 pounds. It has gender neutral colors and is meant for children 2 and over. It features several modern designs such as "marble" counter tops and "stainless steel" appliances. The stove, microwave, and phone all make noise to enhance your child's imagination.
It arrived in these two large boxes. I admit that I was a little worried that this kitchen would be too big for us.
My husband took the parts out of the boxes and I felt better because it wasn't as big as I thought it would be. It is plenty big for Evan to sit in or for Isabella to fit in there with him one day. It only took my husband about 10 minutes to have it put together.
There are several stickers that have to be applied. This is a picture of my dad applying one of the stickers. He was actually putting it in the wrong spot and I am happy to report that it is pretty easy to take it off and move it if you make a mistake.
It came with all of these accessories. Evan can let his imagination run wild with all of the food he will be able to "make" us.
The stove makes a sizzling noise when the pan is placed on it. If you put the pitcher on, it makes a bubbling sound. They also light up!
The microwave and phone also have different sounds when the buttons are pushed. Evan walks around the house with his phone all day long.
It has cabinets under the stove and on top of the refrigerator that provide plenty of space for accessories. You can see the phone on the side of the kitchen beside the cabinets.
There are also two baskets beside the stove to store more "food" in. The drawer over the stove opens so that the utensils can be kept inside.
The refrigerator opens and has two shelves. Evan loves taking the food out and putting it back in. The oven even has a realistic removable rack. Evan keeps a bunch of food in there too. His favorite thing to put in the oven is pizza. Maybe that means I make too much pizza at our house.
The floor looks like hardwood floors but is made out of foam. It is super soft to walk on and I wish my kitchen had floors like that!
There is also a cute little bar stool so that one child can be inside serving the food while another child(or parent) is sitting on the stool waiting to be served. Evan gets a big kick out of it when I get in the kitchen(YES-I can fit too) and fix him "dinner". I almost wish there were two stools. There is plenty of room for another stool to slide under and one day I would be able to play with Evan AND Isabella in the kitchen.
We've had the kitchen for over a month now and we have played in it for many hours. It is something that both my husband and I enjoy playing with him. He loves to go outside and this kitchen is perfect on rainy or cold days because it keeps him entertained for so long. He is really proud of his cooking abilities and brings us several "meals" throughout the day.
It doesn't take up near as much space as I thought it would and I am completely happy with it. The look fits in well with our decor and I'm actually a little jealous because I think my kids' kitchen is cooler than my real kitchen! It makes me happy to think of all the time we will be able to enjoy as a family with the Grand Walk-In Kitchen.
