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

        Comments about Step2 Heart of the Home Kitchen™:

        I loved this kitchen for it's realistic look and neutral tones. My son 1yr loves to cook at stove, My daughter 4yrs was thrilled with picture of herself in frame. My only wish would be for the height and depth to be increased. My 4 yr old is very tall for her age and it took forever to find a play kitchen I thought she could enjoy. The shelves are not as deep as I would like to store accessories but all else is wonderful.

          Comments about Step2 Heart of the Home Kitchen™:

          We love this kitchen. We searched for quite some time to find a kitchen that would provide all of the features we wanted (sizzling stovetop, coffeepot, etc.) was the right color and size for our space and "fit" our family. We are heavy recylcers, pet friendly and have a farmhouse sink of our own so this kitchen was perfect for us. We also have a Step 2 Grocery cart and cash register (not Step 2) and a Step 2 Bus/slide combo. The four items make for great kitchen/grocery play including the "ride home" in the bus and meal prep afterward in the kitchen.

          Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
          Step2Staff: 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. Nov 21, 2013
