I like how it is a store and a kitchen- it makes it less about domesticating children (and also more boy-friendly according to my husband). We were missing two parts, not needed to hold it together, but needed for the look. I called Step2 [...] They were very responsive. I would recommend this product and step2 as a company.

I bought this for my 2yr old daughter  birthday. She and her cousins (1 and 2yrs)play all day. The set came with 10 very hard fruits and veggies and 10 bakery items, so I had to buy more that are softer. 1 pot, 1 skillet, I had to buy more. They love to turn on the stove nobs to hear it boil and sizzle. I would have liked to seen the refridge with push buttons insted of stickers; and it make water and ice nosie. The oven has not stayed close sence I pulled it out the box. The hood vent really have a light. I think that could have been used for the oven or microwave. The microwave don't make noise or light up, no push buttons like the cheaper version. I don't mind the battery useage. All of the appliances are hard for the kids to pull open; there should have been actual handles. The kitchen sink could  have been a litte wider and deeper, and the facuet need running water noise. I'd rather have more amities then for it to come with food that you have to buy extra of anyway. There should have been two grocery bag insted of one. The cash register is really fun and have a credit card and coins, but it don't hold dollar bills. It's a very good hight for them to grow with.

    The actual delivery was way ahead of the projected delivery date and the features on the kitchen/market make it well worth every penny. The combo of the kitchen and the market make it a spread for children of a varying age range. Hours of fun incorporating concepts such as food prep and also money skills with the market.

      Comments about Step2 Fresh Market Kitchen™:

      My 21 month old daughter absolutely loves this toy. I looked at close to 100 kitchens on-line before deciding to go with the Fresh Market Kitchen. I know that she'll get years of use out of it and I love how easily she can switch roles. One minute she's cooking in the kitchen, next moment she's going shopping for groceries using the cash register and shopping bag, and next she is serving us dinner on the bar side of the kitchen. So versatile and I think that this is a great set-up to accomodate more than one child.

        Comments about Step2 Fresh Market Kitchen™:

        I got this for my daughter for Christmas and she loves it. It shipped the day after I ordered it and arrived pretty quick. The two boxes it comes in are huge and were shipped by FedEx. Both boxes arrived damaged, soggy and muddy, almost to the point of disintegration. Luckily nothing inside was broken. (I've never liked fedex) Assembly was not difficult at all. The only 'issue' I had was that one of the screws on the light was stripped when I took it out of the package, so I had to have my husband take it out for me so I could put in the batteries. Not a big deal at all though. My daughter is six and fairly tall and she has no issues playing with this. I love that she can use her imagination to the fullest and play store, restaraunt, bakery or anything else she comes up with. This is a very versatile toy. My 9 year old son even likes to play with it! I do wish it came with some little stools for the counter area. That would make it even better!

          this is a quality product, but it could have used a few more interactive components like microwave buttons instead of a decal. It was difficult to assemble because the instruction sheet is very poor and hard to follow.

          I chose this kitchen above many others due to the many role play opportunities. The value is also amazing. Can't wait to see my 19 month old son enjoy it for years to come!

          stephanie g on Dec 4, 2014
          When my kids were little, they had a cafe/bakery/kitchen that they adored. They played creatively with it in so many ways. They were cooks, bakers, servers, cashiers, customers, and business owners. I can see the potential in this cafe/market/kitchen to supply endless hours of fun and learning. It is going to be at Great Grandma's house for her 34 great grandchildren to play in at Christmas and whenever they visit.

          I chose this play kitchen because it combines a kitchen, market and check-out area all in one. I know my 2 year old son will love the reusable shopping bag and cash register. I will purchase a mini shopping basket and some extra play food, and this will be a great gift under the Xmas tree!

          This is for my daycare children . I am replacing an older kitchen I have had for 15 years. Shopping at the market plus a play kitchen in one, is a space saver and I like that idea.

          I liked all the different options, cooking, shopping, eating, etc. that this kitchen offered. I also liked that the stove and sink area appeared to have enough room for one child to cook and another child to wash the dishes. It also has good reviews.

          Our other granddaughter has the same kitchen, and the working stove is what sold us. She absolutely loves this set up and plays in it about 50% of her day. This present is for our other granddaughter who is turning 2 and we are sure she will love it too.

          How deep are cabinets, refrigerator, and stove can they be used to store all food and accessories?
          Christin H on Dec 12, 2013
          BEST ANSWER: All the food and accessories can easily be stored within the kitchen. You will not have any spilling out on the floor. I actually purchased a few more assesories for our kitchen. The shelves/cabinets are all 5.5 inches deep and the display case is 8.5 inches deep. The baskets that come with it are great. My kids have had this kitchen for two years and play with it almost everyday. They love to play "bakery" while I am cooking. If I had room in my house I would definitely buy the matching stools and table for it.
          Can these pieces stand alone separately?
          chris c on Dec 2, 2013
          BEST ANSWER: No, they are connected together that is why they are shown together. The cream part that the cash register is on would stand but not the stove side.
          What parts of the kitchen make sounds? It says the cash register scans and lights up and I know a prior review mention the microwave doesn't make any noice, but what about the stove top or oven or phone?
          Suzanne P on Jun 5, 2013
          BEST ANSWER: Hi. The oven and microwave do not make any sounds,but the top range makes a sizzling sound when you turn the knobs. As far as the phone it does not come with one. My granddaughters age 3 and 2 love this kitchen and the cash register is a big hit. There is also a working light over the stove that they like putting on and off. I hope this helps!
          Does the microwave make sounds?
          Magdalena C on Mar 27, 2013
          BEST ANSWER: No, it does not. However the stovetop does and there is a light above the cooking area that my kids love!
          We move every 2 to 4 years is it easy to put together and take apart?
          A shopper on Mar 29, 2014
          BEST ANSWER: Not quite sure I never took it apart but if I had to guess I would say it would be possible but really not that easy to do but must say its a wonderful toy my granddaughters love it made really well
          How tall is the counter?
          Kimberly A on Nov 19, 2014
          BEST ANSWER: I would say the counter is approximately two feet tall. My 2 year old granddaughter has no problem reaching it. My two grandchildren love this kitchen. It's the nicest kitchen for the money.
          this product could delivery to Taiwan(Taipei) ?

          What is the height of this counter?
          Christine K on Nov 18, 2014
          BEST ANSWER: The height of the counter is 19 inches.
          What are the shipping dimensions ?
          Tais B on Aug 17, 2014
          BEST ANSWER: This product comes in two boxes. Box one measures 28.25 inches by 21.5 inches by 21.25 inches and weighs 26 lbs. Box two measures 30.75 inches by 22.5 inches by 20.75 inches and weighs 22 lbs.
          Hi. Could you tell me the dimensions for inside the oven please?
          Tracy J on Feb 1, 2014

          Do you price match toysrus?
          alexandria c on Dec 11, 2013
