    Why we picked this one:
    We bought this kitchen for our 2 yr old son as a Christmas gift. He pretends to cook at every house we have ever visited that has a play kitchen, so we decided to get him his own. We purchased this unit after very careful consideration and comparison of all the different units available. We had already decided to purchase the more traditional colored version of this unit, when I came across this fun colored unit in the "Deals" section of the site. At the time, the deal made this one a tiny bit less expensive than the other. We purchased a set of play food separately, as this comes with plates, cups, and pots.

    How we use it:
    He loves the pots that come with the toy kitchen, though he says the sound effects are too loud sometimes when he puts the pot on the burner. He plays with it daily. He cooks breakfast and supper and is always bringing me a "treat". This has been a great purchase.

    I only have 3 things that I do not like about it:
    (1) The very long screws that are required to assemble that kitchen are very difficult to get started into the plastic if you are assembling this by yourself. It involved propping against the sofa and using my knee to press the pieces together while also trying to apply force in another direction to push the screw into the plastic hard enough that it would grab. In the end, I got it in crooked and had to find a helper.
    (2) The pre-attached refrigerator door scrapes against the top of the kitchen making it a bit difficult to open. Toddler solution: leave it open all the time.
    (3) The faucet is extremely loose and just sort of hangs a bit into the sink. It looks very sloppy and there isn't a way to adjust it.

    Not big enough for more than one child to use. I expected more for the money. Much smaller than I expected. Seems very cheap,not as durable or sturdy as I expected. I did compare it to others I saw in stores before ordering. And I thought it would be a good product. I like that the colors aren't so girly, as this is for a 3 year old boy. Over all the product is ok, but I wouldn't purchase it again. The picture looks WAY better/bigger than the actual product is.

      Bright and colorful. My 14mo triplets love it. Screws came through the front of one of the bins but thankfully they're not sharp. Drawers don't fit perfectly, but they don't stick either. It's great for their current age. They love the bubbling and frying pot and pan...

        Comments about Step2 LifeStyle Custom Kitchen™ - Brights:

        I really like Step2 products. We own many Step2 toys and i love them as much as my kids. Very colorful, easy to clean and pretty durable.
        I have chosen this kitchen ONLY because of its bright colors. I knew from the very beginning that it is small (i see people complaining that it is smaller than they expected). If you have two kids...get a different/bigger kitchen. This kitchen looks great in my kids bedroom. We have it for more then 3 months now and everything works great.
        I was choosing between KidKraft Deluxe Big & Bright Kitchen (large, wooden, very pretty) and LifeStyle Custom Kitchen - Brights by Step2 ...Step2 won! I like that it is easier to clean and has lights & sounds. Yes, it is on a smaller size, but i prefer to have a small kitchen that is used every single day, than a big one that is standing in the corner covered in dust. For kids 4 years old and under Step2 would be my #1 choice.

          My son loves his kitchen. I asked Santa to bring this one because of the buttons on the phone, and microwave! My son loves the phone and takes it everywhere. I think the unit is a nice size. We are able to add many toys to the kitchen with plenty of storage room. I think it would be big enough for more then one child to play with at once. It's very comparable or better then the ones I saw in stores.

          I choose the LifeStyle Kitchen because of its size. Its perfect for my playroom and doesn't take up to much space. I also love the bright colors, working phone and microwave sounds. I'm sure my children will enjoy many hours of fun with this set
          Wanda W on Feb 10, 2015
          A good, medium size - not the smallest and not the largest. Good height. Colorful for a playroom. Enough bells and whistles, but not too many. Has a few dishes, additional pieces without a million that will have to be picked up. Finally purchased today after looking for some time because of the $20 coupon code.

          I was looking for a gift for my son. He loves to pretend to cook and I thought it was about time he had a kitchen. I liked the colors initially, but was going to pick the regular colored one until i saw that there was a discount on this one. I think he will love the cooking sounds and phone as well as the colors.

          Its got a great color scheme, is a good size, and I plan to put it outside so that's why I went with a plastic kitchen. Being mostly made in USA also was a big factor in my purchase.

          BEST ANSWER: The carton dimensions of the Lifestyle Custom Kitchen™ - Brights is 29.25" high by 21.25" wide by 26.5" deep and weighs 28 lbs.
          What is the countertop height from the floor to the top of the counter? Thank you!
          A shopper on Apr 21, 2015
          BEST ANSWER: The height from floor to the kitchen counter is 20".
          I just bought the Lifestyle custom Kitchen -Brights and when I get to step 4 when you are suppose to screw in the screws for the countertop there are no punched out holes? is this a manufacture defect?
          Thanks,
          L
          linda b on Mar 20, 2015
          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.

          We have a little bit older model of the Custom Kitchen. The stove top has quit making the frying / boiling noise, and I have no idea where or how to replace the batteries. Can someone help?
          Gary B on Nov 12, 2013
          BEST ANSWER: To replace the batteries, unscrew the burner to access the battery compartment. Insert 2 "AA" batteries into the battery compartment then screw the burner back into the kitchen.
          Is it available in Canada?
          Margaret l on Nov 6, 2013

          Is the countertop red or bright red orange and are all the colors pretty much the color in the picture? Thanks
          A shopper on Oct 16, 2013
