I got to review the Gourmet Cafe Kitchen, This is one of the new Kitchens featured for 2009. it’s features are:

  • Kitchen appliances include “stainless steel” oven, stove-top, refrigerator and coffee pot
  • Features open “window” for prep n’ serve play; builds cooperative learning skills
  • Provides plenty of storage space for playtime accessories – utensil hooks, “stainless steel” dish rack and removable fruit and veggie storage baskets
  • Features electronic sounds in both the stove top and phone
  • Special pot and pan activate electronic boiling and frying sounds in the stove’s front burner
  • Extra large & deep sink features a swiveling faucet, push button, and an additional prep sink area
  • Accessory set includes 2 table settings and serving utensils (accessories may vary)
  • Durable poly construction wipes clean easily and lasts for years
  • Requires 2 “AAA” and 2 “AA” batteries (not included)
  • Made in USA of US and imported parts (some accessories and phone made in China)
  • Minimal adult assembly required

When I saw the big box arrive I thought it was going to take forever to put together It was actually very simple, it comes in three large parts, and all you have to do is connect and put the screws in. One downside was there were no holes for the screws i had to make them.

We love this kitchen, it has plenty of accessories and tons of space,  I love the fact that it has hooks to hang your utensils on, and even a hook for the phone.

  1. My favorite food to make when I was little were ‘monster cookies’. My aunt always made them with us, they are gigantic cookies made with m&m’s, nuts and chocolate chips, yum!

  2. Ditto on the dirt/mud pies. We had a large ditch in my neighborhood, where I would spend hours making these. 🙂

  3. After visiting Step 2, I fell in love with the Adventure Lodge Play Center with Glider – it’s a fantastic play area.

  4. 3-My daughter loves to climb and slide, so the Naturally Playful® Woodland Climber looks perfect for her – thanks! The Arctic Splash Water Table looks fun, too!

  5. 4-My daughter loves to climb and slide, so the Naturally Playful® Woodland Climber looks perfect for her – thanks! The Naturally Playful® Big Folding Slide would be really handy since it folds up, too!

  6. 5-My daughter loves to climb and slide, so the Naturally Playful® Woodland Climber looks perfect for her – thanks! The outdoor play combo would be great, too, thanks!

  7. Ok, you might laugh, but my favorite thing to do was play in my outdoor kitchen (basically the patio). I would make little bowls out of leaves and acorn caps, and I read that native americans used to use acorns as food, so I would crush up acorns and try to make little bowls of acorn oatmeal (since that’s what it looked like to me). Luckily I also read that the acorns were very very bitter unless they were cooked, so I never tried to eat them!
    Also at the beach, there were these bushes along the dunes, and my cousins and I used to collect the bean-looking buds off them and pretend to cook them in clear plastic containers (the sun would heat up the water a bit). One time we offered our “cooked beans” to my uncle and he ATE ONE! We were horrified, we were sure we’d poisoned him! I found out later (on a high school field trip) that those plants actually are edible! 🙂 Oh, and now I’m remembering our clams packed full of sand that passed for anything from cake to pizza to soup, depending on our mood.

  8. I used to make fake pizza using pieces of dog food. Although my younger brother didn’t mind (and happily ate the “toppings”), I think our dog was a little annoyed!

  9. My favorite fake food was soup…we’d boat out to this little island and my sister and I would find shells or wood to use as bowls. Then we’d add some sea oats, sand, dried-out dead crab legs, whatever we could find on the beach and mix it all up with twigs. Yum!

  10. I was always making soup with anything water and anything that I could find in the yard (dirt, leaves, berries, etc.).

  11. I used to LOVE to make cake. I would shred up tissues and stuff it in containers. Then my friends (stuffed animals) & I would sing happy b-day!

  12. I also think my kids would really enjoy Step 2’s neat and tidy cottage. It looks perfect for playing “house” or “shop”! #1.

  17. Pizza was my fave fake food. You can put all kinds of toppings on it. We would make non traditional ones like fruit salad pizza or roll up playdoh to make vienna sausage pizza.

  18. My favorite (fake) food to make as a child? was probably a PPJ sandwich, we used to have the bread that you add water to and would change from white to brown & purple

    visit step 2 and tell me another product you like: 5 entries -LOVE LOVE the All-Star Sports Climber. My son would LOVE this (if only THAT would be given away too 🙂

  19. I think one of the cutest things I ended up making for my daughter where tiny little pop-tarts out of clay. They where only the size of my pinky nail but everyone knew what it was.

  20. I loved making pizzas. My son just saw this kitchen and I had to pry him away from it. He was playing with the pizza. Thanks

  21. I guess I never realized what a tight food budget we were on when we were kids. My Mom always made us,
    (and this is what I pretended to make)…don’t get grossed out…Tuna Pea Wiggle! It was a concoction of butter, flour, milk, tuna and peas, served on top of saltine crackers. Thanks for the memories!

  22. Trying to win this kitchen for my grandaughter…would love to “tweet”, but I don’t know how!
    Good luck everybody!

  23. Fav. fake food I loved to make, was cakes. To go back to those care-free days would be awesome!

  24. I like the 50’s diner that Step2 has.. so cute, and looks like it would be tons of fun a well.
