With a new play room, my little girl needed some new toys! We had the opportunity to review the new Step 2 Lifestyle Legacy Kitchen and everyone that has been over has been thoroughly impressed with the details of this kitchen. We previously owned a Lifestyle Kitchen, but the new Lifestyle Legacy Kitchen is far more elegant and actually matches my home’s decor. With black countertops, a recycling bin, a coffee pot, and cooking utensils, my little girl has a great time preparing food for us. She loves to pretend that she is like me, stirring her skillets that actually makes sizzling sounds when placed on the stove top.
I love the extra storage in each of the cabinets of the kitchen. I may be asking for too much, but I do wish that the set would have come with food as well as all of the neat accessories that were included. As a consumer, I wouldn’t mind spending an extra $10-20 to have more accessories included, so that I would not have to go out and buy them separately.
Assembly wasn’t too terrible, but I would advise that your toddler is nowhere near you when you are putting this kitchen together. The pieces are bulky and not pre-drilled, but there are indents at each location where a screw is suppose to penetrate the plastic. The stickers can be a little tricky to place on evenly, but with a little patience it is definitely doable!
With our previous kitchen, we had a few minor issues and contacted Step 2. There were pieces missing and the storage bin was dented. Within 2 days, replacement pieces arrived. Compared to other companies that require receipts, Step 2 was a pleasure to work with and we continue to purchase their products, knowing we will be receiving quality products at great prices, and a solid customer service team to back me up. You can purchase the Step 2 Lifestyle Legacy Kitchen at Toys R Us.
