Step2 Grand Walk-in Kitchen
If money and size are no object, and you want to buy your child the Cadillac of toy kitchen sets, then you might be interested in the Step2 Grand Walk-in Kitchen.
As the name indicates, the set is big enough for most toddlers of the ages two to four to be able to walk in and simulates a huge kitchen that allows more than one child to play at a time.
The floor inside the kitchen looks like hardwood, but it’s actually cushioned foam, so you don’t have to worry about your toddler hurting themselves if they fall.
The kitchen is 47 inches in height, 50 inches in width, 36 inches in depth from the front of the kitchen to the back, and the set weighs about 55 pounds. The Grand Walk-in Kitchen sells for almost $200.
It comes with an accessory kit that has 103 pieces including:
The kitchen has three appliances that have electronic features including a grill where kids can prepare hamburgers and hotdogs with sounds that simulate cooking on the grill.
The buttons on the microwave beep will beep when children push them. The burners on the stove make boiling or sizzling noises and light up.
Besides the kitchen and the grill, the kitchen has a dining area similar to a countertop where kids or parents can eat their meals and even comes with a stool so that you can pull up a seat.
The kitchen comes with “stainless steel” appliances like a microwave, oven, fridge with ice dispenser, sink, stove, and cabinets for storage.
Over 300 reviewers shared their thoughts on their Grand Walk-in purchase, and about 75 percent of them rated the kitchen with five stars.
Many parents said their kids loved the kitchen and that it’s ideal for parents who have more than one small child so that they can play together.
Of course, due to the size of the set, the assembly is no easy feat so consider yourself forewarned to bring your patience and a power drill if you decide to buy this one.
However, lots of buyers said that despite the hassle of putting everything together, they felt that it was worth it.
