FUN, REALISTIC BARBIE KITCHEN SET
~ What ~
Made of pink and silver ABS plastic with mostly cardboard backing, this 4-piece kitchen appliance ensemble that measures 19 by 12 inches is to be used mainly for dolls that are 11 to 12 inches tall such as the iconic Barbie. Coming with 39 accessories, it includes miniature pots, pans, toaster, serving utensils, dinnerware, and a few pretend food items including fake ice cubes. The cupboards open and have stickered pictures inside. By adding 2 AAA batteries, sections light up and make sounds. Instructions are included on the gift box that has a carry handle.
~ Why ~
Our granddaughter who lives out of state turns 4 this month, so I had to get this gift for the girly-girl who likes to play with dolls. I like that the set looks realistic with stainless-steel-looking appliances. The oven, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, and freezer can be opened, some including lights inside. Since I have already bought her a Barbie, I appreciate that this one is geared for this type of doll when so many others are not. Having all the accessories make it more special and engaging for young ones to play house. Another reason this set is good is that it offers a pretend environment for cooking, cleaning, and arranging a kitchen.
~ Why Not ~
Those who do not like plastic doll furniture and accessories will avoid this item. Since the 4 sections are separated, they are somewhat hard to keep in a row, but this may be an advantage as you can mix up the arrangement, especially if set in a confined “kitchen” space. Some may not like the cardboard backings, but I had no issue with them. The small parts are not for children under 3 years of age.
~ Wish ~
I wish the batteries were included so the toy could be used right out of the box. Having other colors than pink might be considered.
~ Want ~
If you are looking for a kitchen play set for a Barbie doll, this is an excellent choice. I know my granddaughter will spend hours enjoying it when we give it to her for her birthday.
