Disney Princess Kitchen
Advantages: Good sound effects, lots of accessories, well built and durable
Disadvantages: Expensive unless you can find it on offer, faulty sound effects, takes a long time to put together
We bought this for our little princess this christmas and I think that it is a great toy! I managed to buy this for half price at Toys R Us and I believe that it is regularly on sale there as a friend of mine also bought it for her daughter earlier last year on the same offer. The kitchen is supposed to be the 3 years plus but I have found that it is fine for our daughter (she was 17 months when we bought it and now 21 months old). There are no small pieces that could cause a choking hazard and the whole kitchen is generally well made when put together.
Putting it together was definitely a challenge though - it came in a lot of small parts and two massive sheets of stickers to attach in the right places! I was a little concerned when putting it together as when unassembled the pieces all feel very flimsy and like they could snap very easily. I did however manage to put it all together without breaking any of the pieces. It took me around an hour in total but when it is fully assembled it does seem a lot stronger.
The kitchen also comes with accessories including pots and pans, play food, utensils and a mobile phone. The utensils and mobile phone are designed to hang on hooks on either side of the kitchen but unfortunately my daughter snapped off both of the hooks within 10 minutes of playing with it! I tried to glue them back on but she snapped them off again straight away. It is not a major problem though as there is so much storage within the kitchen that there are plenty of places to put them instead.
The kitchen has a number of different sound effects including running water when you turn the tap, recipes when you flick through the recipe book, hob sounds when you place pots on them and also when you turn the cooker knobs. Only problem with this is that one of the knobs on our kitchen is slightly tempramental and decides to go off whenever it feels like it so we do occasionally get woken up in the middle of the night to a kettle boiling or snow white telling us that dinner is ready!
Besides from the couple of little niggles I mentioned with this kitchen, I think it is a lovely toy and perfect for any little princess.
Summary: This toy is a bargain if you can buy for half price like I did
