      Comments about Step2 Heart of the Home Kitchen™:

      I did a lot of research looking for a kitchen for my toddler for Christmas. I looked at a lot of brands, read reviews and ended up ordering this kitchen. I am so happy with my purchase. She squeals whenever she goes into the room and sees it, she loves playing with it and her older cousin had a blast playing with it as well. I think it will be a toy that she will be able to grow into and play with for years.

      (Food shown was a separate purchase. There is minimal food included but I still recommend this over other kitchen sets.)

          So easy to assemble. Not so big that it took over everything but big enough to last for years of play.

          when assembling are there nails? but there's no holes for drilling. Should thrust it by myslf?
          A shopper on Nov 20, 2013
          BEST ANSWER: Our screws are self tapping screws that are able to go through the plastic. You may need to start them with a hammer. Please follow the instructions or find the indents in the plastic to line up the screws correctly. We do this in an effort to ensure that no shavings inadvertently are left over in the box as a result of pre-drilling. These shavings could pose a choking hazard to little ones.
