Great kitchen but has some weak points
on 17 March 2013
We bought this for my two daughters who are 2 and 4 years old. It took two of us a couple of hours to put together, there are many pieces but everything was clearly labelled and the instructions were easy to follow.
All went well until we came to attach the oven and dishwasher doors, each has a shelf at the bottom which are held in place by tiny wooden dowels. When attaching the dishwasher door my husband put a little too much pressure on the shelf, the wood split and one of the dowels came right through the top so we had to glue it and put some supports underneath. 3 months after buying this kitchen one of the girls has stood on the oven shelf and that too has broken. We have managed to fix it but if you buy this kitchen I would advise fixing some extra supports under those two shelves at the start.
The other problem I have is with the washing machine door, it comes off quite easily if opened too far although it can be put back on easily enough. Our kitchen does not have a chalk board or magic oven door as stated in the description.
Apart from the oven / dishwasher shelves it seems to be well made and my daughters really love this kitchen. It is a good size without being too big and there is plenty of space within the cupboards and shelves for storing all the toy food, plates, etc. It has already provided many hours of fun and If it weren't for those shelves I would have given this kitchen 5 stars.
