The Step2 Custom Kitchen is a great choice if you are looking for an affordable yet extremely well-equipped play kitchen complete with all the accessories you would expect to find in a real kitchen. This is also a great option if space is limited and you want to squeeze a lot of fun into a smaller package. One of the most exciting features of this kitchen for children are the real-life noises from the microwave, cooker and phone. To recreate a real cooking experience the specially designed frying pan sizzles as it cooks whilst the saucepan lid activates the sound of boiling water when placed at the front of the hob. This fun-filled play kitchen is bright, colourful and enticing for children. They will love the fully functional drawers, including cutlery storage, and cabinets as well as the neat little shelf and plate rack for organising all of their crockery, pots and pans. The unit also includes a sink and tap for all that washing up. For the eco-warriors of the future, there is also an all-important recycle bin for leftovers. The play kitchen comes with a 20 piece set of accessories to ensure that children are able to to whip up many special treats and the durability of the unit means that it has the capability to withstand many years of fun. Whilst grown-up assistance is needed for the assembly, after that, you can sit back and watch the culinary masterpieces being created. For full functionality 6AA batteries are required.
