It’s amazing how children love to play house and act like mini adults (can we change places?!?). DD is only 2 and is already a mother to all of her toys, including her trucks (yes she puts her trucks at the table and feeds them). It’s amazing to watch her be a mini Mommy – I think she is doing a great job too! DD also likes to clean the house by pushing the mop and vacuum around – I should hire her!
When the Step 2 Kitchen arrived for review, I think I was just as excited to watch her play in the kitchen as she was to use it. My husband put it together in about half an hour to 25 minutes, but he could have had it done even faster if he DIDN’T have any help (you know, the kind of help that you get from a 2 year old). There are 2 large parts to screw together and a few knobs for the cupboards, the microwave, stove and fridge. There are also a lot of stickers to add.
Once Dad had the kitchen together (even before it was done), DD was enjoying herself putting all her accessories away (the pepper in the fridge, vinegar in the microwave etc.) The Step 2 Kitchen isn’t just a kitchen alone, it comes with so many accessories so children can enjoy themselves with pots, pans, cracked pepper, plates, cutlery, serving spoons and much much more. Along with all these accessories, there is also some interactive parts. The pots and pans boil on the elements (complete with boiling and frying noises), there is also a microwave, stove and phone that are all “functional” (when the buttons are pressed, they make noises), and there is also a light above the stove. The only thing missing is a fan!
DD loves her kitchen. She is always cooking up something new. Whether we give her cheese, gold Fish or a bowl of soup to eat, we frequently find her cooking her supper on her Step 2 Kitchen. She especially likes to add cracked pepper to all her meals and she likes to cook for Cammy too (our dog).
I like to see how creative DD is with this kitchen. It’s amazing how much she knows about cooking and cleaning a kitchen. She looks so natural putting the pots on the elements and lifting up the lids to add spices, and then putting the dishes into the sink. I am constantly amazed at how smart children are.
The Step 2 Kitchen would make a great gift for any child that enjoys playing make believe. Just make sure to include a pack of batteries, cause they aren’t included.
