We bought this set for my daughter because we love the company's quality in their product (we own a few other sets and accessories). She was 1 1/2 at the time of purchase and still putting things into her mouth, so we had to put the onion slices, tomato slices, green pepper slices, tomatoes, cucumbers and salami slices away and only recently gave them back to her because they are very small (a little over an inch). She still had a lot to play with and the other items (pita pocket, cheese and lettuce) are very soft felt fabric. A year later the felt is still in tact (no tear or wear showing). I would recommend this product for any child into pretend, entertains for hours.
I'm a fan of this company. The quality of their real wood is so much better than some of their competition (and we have a few to compare). This set is cute and my daugter's uncle purchased it after she received the Gourmet Kitchen for Christmas (I think it also goes with the BBQ Grill). She loves putting together hotdogs and hamburgers for us. The size is perfect for little toddlers hands.
This toy company has won me over. I love all their toys. They are made of real wood and a year later (will a lot of wear and tear) the paint is still in tact. My daughter received this as a gift from her grandparents after we purchased the gourmet kitchen for christmas and she can entertain herself for hours with this playset. I love that she can use her imagination. We all the 'creations' she makes for daddy and mommy too.
I really like this brand of toys; most of their toys are made of real wood and fabrics. I bought this toy for my 2 year old after I was talking to her one day about diversity and how everyone looks unique and not the same. She is in daycare that has a lot of diversity and I wanted to bring that home as she has a lot of blond hair, blue eyed girl dolls. She loves the dolls and it helped with the conversation in comparing the dolls hair and skin color to some of the dolls she currently has.
We bought this for my daughter last Christmas (1 1/2) and she loved it, maybe a little young but we saw it in the store assembled and she really seemed interested. Now a year later it is getting much more use (daily). For holidays, she’s been getting accessories to go with it and it keeps her entertained for a long time. I love that the doors open and can store a lot of accessories (play food, plates, pots and utensils) helps keep the room clear of mess. It was really easy to put together (mom did it on Christmas Eve, though she needed dad's help at one point to hold a piece while she assembled). Easy to read directions and all parts were labeled. It’s made of sturdy wood (not plastic) and the right height for a toddler’s size. I would recommend this toy for any child.
