We were not too sure about which play kitchen to get for our family. There are so many to pick from in all kinds of price ranges. We read some quick reviews and decided to go with the Kidkraft Deluxe Let’s Cook Kitchen. From what we could gather from the reviews that we read, it was of better quality and would last much longer than the most of the other choices. I am glad we made the choice we did.
The first thing that I can say about it is that it definitely is a very sturdy design. It even includes real wood parts. The kitchen comes unassembled and we could tell how sturdy it would be by how heavy the box was. Getting the parts to our kitchen was not too bad as we simply took them out of the box and moved them up in smaller loads. It took us all of about 2 hours to put it together, which is not too bad as neither of us are really all that handy. One thing we noticed was that the quality is quite good. We were not simply attacking the pieces together with clips or something, we were screwing them together and the screws were going into metal retainers. This was much better than we thought it would be and we are sure the doors and such will last for many years as our children play very hard with them.
The end results are great. It is extremely solid and our 4 year old really likes to check what is behind all of the doors. It is the perfect size for her and we are sure she will still be able to use it until she is at least 8. It is large enough for more than one child to play at once, and there is plenty for all of them to ejoy at the same time.
