Anyway, my playroom looks like a veritable Step2 advertisement. We have activity tables, art desks and easels, a Real Projects workshop, and not one, but 2 kitchens! And that's just our Step2 indoor toys! Want to see more? Come take a look at my garage! Here we've got our Naturally Playful Woodland Climber and our Wagon For Two Plus! This is another reason I cannot wait to move and have a huge yard of our own. Here at our current home, we can't leave play equipment outdoors, so we have to drag it in and out of the garage. Thank goodness we only have to deal with that for another couple of months!
We're looking at a home in Ohio that has a whopping 4 acres, so if we end up buying it, that's plenty of room for any Step2 goodies we want. I am thinking that the Adventure Lodge Play Center and Sandbox Combo would have to be at the tippy-top of my wish list! Or maybe the Clubhouse Climber. With so many awesome products, it's really hard to choose!
Anyway, I am getting way ahead of myself here. I am so excited about our upcoming move and all of the great creative play possibilities that I forgot to tell you about the amazing product I just bought for my kids. A few weeks ago, I ordered the Step2 LifeStyle Grand Walk In Kitchen for Sophie and Xander. They already have a smaller kitchen from Step2, but now that they're both actively toddling, I wanted to give them more room to play together and minimize the fighting. The LifeStyle Grand Walk In Kitchen allows plenty of space to to move around in, and endless possibilities for budding culinary geniuses to whip up their latest creations. Who says there can't be 2 chefs to one great kitchen? This positively roomy kitchen from Step2 allows just that.
Here are just some of the fun features that the LifeStyle Grand Walk In Kitchen has to offer:
- Deluxe kitchen features an attached dining area; encourages multi-child play inside and out
- Appliances feature a pretend grill and electronic microwave and stove top burner
- Realistic "oak hardwood" foam flooring provides realism and comfort
- Spacious "granite-look" counter tops
- Large sink has realistic swivel faucet with push button
- 11.75" (29.8 cm) high stool enhances the counter top dining experience (stool design and height may vary slightly)
- Includes 104-pc. accessory set (accessories and play food may vary
- Durable, poly construction wipes clean and lasts for years
- Requires 4 AA and 2 AAA batteries (not included)
- Adult Assembly Required
My husband stealthily snuck both boxes up the stairs while I distracted the kids, and he had the kitchen assembled and ready to go within about 30 minutes. It would have been quicker, but he was busy "oohing" and "ahhing" over all of the great accessories and features. Plus, we had to locate the batteries. Since we have already begun packing things, finding even simple items is quite the challenge! My only complaint? One of the metal hanging hooks was missing. This is more aesthetic than anything, as the metal "pegs" were included and are functional.
Once the decals were in place, the food was unwrapped and the "hardwood floor" was lovingly installed, it was time to introduce the kids to their brand new kitchen. Kyle, my 12 year old, and Sophie, my 2 and a half year old, spent hours playing together. My youngest son, Xander, was asleep for this initial unveiling. Don't worry, though. I will be posting video of both toddlers playing together in the kitchen soon!
Here are some photos from the initial unveiling. Again, please pardon the surrounding mess. We're in the process of sorting about 5 tons of baby clothes and toys to prepare for moving as well as donating.
