Play Furniture For Toddlers Kidkraft Uptown Espresso Kitchen

Play Kitchen Review

We bought this play kitchen for our son’s second birthday. For a few months prior to his birthday, every time we went to a play date at a house that had a play kitchen, he would spend a good deal of time playing with it. I looked at several play kitchens and found this one had everything we were looking for and looks similar to the kitchen in our house. It has a sink, stove, knobs that turn and click, refrigerator, freezer, microwave, oven, dishwasher, hooks to hang utensils or dishes, a shelf, and towel bar. There is a real chalk board/memo board on the freezer and a pretend ice dispenser on the refrigerator door. There is also a pretend phone that the Bean really enjoys using. This kitchen is small enough that it doesn’t take over our whole house, but large enough that Bean will be able to use it for years to come. I like the fact that the buttons for the appliances are realistic looking, but don’t actually make noise. It is nice to have to use one’s imagination for these things sometimes, as so many toys light up and make sounds.
Kidkraft Play Kitchen Assembly
Assembling Kidkraft Uptown Espresso Kitchen is not an easy task. Be prepared to invest a few hours of work for this project. It took one whole afternoon for my husband to put it together. He half jokingly says that that each Kidkraft Uptown Kitchen element contains as many pieces as the real kitchen element. Luckily, the instruction set, which comes with it, is very well written and contains a lot of detailed drawings. Kidkraft Play Kitchen is recommended for ages 3 and up. It weighs 84 pounds.
