Default Anyone Have This Kitchen

I'm thinking of getting this kitchen and a washer and dryer set for the practical life area. Anyone have experience how it held up in a daycare setting?

I don't have this kitchen but I do have a Kidcraft one and it has held up nicely. The only thing I'm always worried about is that the oven door opens down so some kids try to step on it. I don't know if the one you chose does that though.

OOOOOOww. Now I'm not sure they have this awesome corner kitchen and I would just need to get a toy dryer to go with it. It only costs a little more. Just wondering what the back side looks like since it wouldn't actually go in a corner but would seperate one play area from another

The kid craft kitchen I bought actually had a washer built into it. I bought it so I could get rid of our little tikes kitchen and washer and dryer. I also liked that it came in primary colors.

It's very cute, but I HATE that it sends the message "kitchens are women's work" with the pink. If it were for my private house and my two girls, awesome. But I think the pink would turn off a lot of boys from thinking it's OK for them to play there. Which, yes, I know is ridiculous, it's just a color, it has no gender, but obviously even small children feel can feel that social pressure.

I just got a kidcraft kitchen. I don't know about the corner one, but the back of mine is not very attractive. It's just lightweight panels with circles punched in them-I guess to stop air pressure from making the doors hard to close. I've only had mine a couple of weeks, so can't offer much help.

It was pretty easy to put together. Except for one section that required another set of hands, I did it all by myself. Word of warning-be very careful with the fasteners. In one place, the pre-drilled holes didn't line up quite right and I stripped out the holes on top of the screw-and they didn't send extra. I made it work, but it was a worrisome few minutes.

My dck loves it.

I personally don't see the whole "color" thing, because my boys play with the kitchen more than the girls do. Just my experience!

Thats a cute kitchen but I bought the step 2 play kitchen at a second hand place and the kids have loved it. Its not particulaly girlly either. I can tell you for certain that kitchens, laundry etc arent just for women!

When I had daycare while my two youngest daughters were little, I did that all the time. I'd get them 'birthday' and 'Christmas' gifts which I would not normally have spent that much money on and used it for daycare. They also got their personal stuff they didn't have to share, but it was a good way to get nice things for my girls as well as supply the daycare.

They have this same one in blue...just as cute and the boys wouldn't think it was too girly and the girls would't think much more about it than it's a pretty blue color.
