We bought this for our 13 month old son for Christmas...we set it up early, and it has been such a wonderful help!! He loves it and will play with this for so long! We can cook dinner, clean, fold laundry, finish a meal, read the newspaper, etc. without a toddler climbing all over us and demanding more attention. He loves the juke box and will dance along to the songs. It is definitely durable, as we keep finding our son standing on top of the open oven door, and it hasn't broken off yet! He eats his snacks at the table now, so cute! My only wish is that it would have come with more play food.

This is a cute set, but my version was missing the burner, the ringer bell, the jukebox and the faucet- all of the things that make noise and really accents the whole "diner" feel. We got it a few days before Christmas and as we were putting together before Christmas morning, it was extremely disappointing that it would be missing stuff, and couldn't get it before Christmas. The Step 2 folks were nice when I called. But overall, it took some of the thrill away as a parent.

Comments about Step2 50's Diner:

Pieces were missing from the set and the pieces that came in the set were poor quality compared to the items on the box and in the videos. I called customer service and they told me that the pieces have not been included for years, yet they are listed on the website, on the box, and they are on the video. She agreed to send me a 20% promo code to purchase another item online if I wanted. I will not purchase from Step 2 again.

Worked thru customer service. Sent replacement jukebox and service bell. Still missing pickles and water glasses. Would have ranked 5 star if I didn't have to micromanage getting all the parts before Christmas.

    I care for my 2 young granddaughters when my daughter is working. The diner provides a complete kitchen play area as well as a perfect snack/lunch seating area for them. There is room to store their play dishes, food etc in the kitchen area. They have used it for over 2 years and are as delighted to use it on a daily basis as when it was first purchased .

        Jennifer D: The seating area is rather small, so it will be a tight fit 5-year olds (or it will in a short time). There's still the grill area, and perhaps she will have fun serving her dolls and stuffed animals who seat in the seats! :) Dec 2, 2014

        Step2Staff: There are three places to install batteries in the 50s Diner. To replace the electronic doorbell batteries, unscrew the doorbell, remove the battery door and insert 2 "AAA" batteries.
