If you are looking for a toy kitchen for your child but you want to have a bit more fun with the color scheme, the KidKraft Deluxe Big & Bright Kitchen might be the perfect option for you.
Designed with the bright colors of the 1970s, this really is a fun, yet tastefully designed kitchen that any child will love. Of course, it is up to you to look over the specs and price to determine if it is the right kitchen for you and your little tyke.
Whenever checking out the different colorful play kitchens available, you need to look over a few different features. Some of the feature categories include:
If you are looking for accessories, the KidKraft Deluxe Big & Bright Kitchen really doesn't provide much. You won't receive any kind of true dishes, so you will need to pick up these accessories separately. As of April (2016), the KidKraft Deluxe Big & Bright Kitchen runs for just under $128. There are no other color-scheme options so what you see with the kitchen is what you get. The toy kitchen does come with a nice little whiteboard that can be written on (similar to a chalkboard). Plus, there are a few magnets for placing notes on the freezer.
The kitchen is designed to be played with children three years of age and up. The sink and stovetop is around two feet off of the ground, so tall children will have trouble using the set.
There are a handful of special features found on the kitchen. These features are:
As guessed, you will need to assemble the KidKraft Deluxe Big & Bright Kitchen after purchasing it. It is no different than setting up a bookshelf you might purchase from the store. You will need a Phillips screwdriver, flathead screwdriver and a hammer to put everything together.
Set up can be completed in an hour or so.
This KidKraft Deluxe Big & Bright Kitchen is approximately 48 inches long, 20.1 inches in width and 37.5 inches tall. In total, the product weighs in at around 88 pounds, so it is one of the heavier kitchen sets out there. There is a good amount of wood in the construction, especially at the base, so it helps keep it anchored down to the ground.
As the KidKraft Deluxe Big & Bright model Kitchen is a bit longer in size (four feet in total), it will of course take up four feet of wall space. Due to this, you'll need some additional space when setting it up. With that being said, as long as you have four feet clear, you can put it just about anywhere. It is great for housing in a larger kid's room where it isn't bumping up against their bed, or in a playroom as an idea.
The KidKraft Deluxe Big & Bright Kitchen really has a color scheme all of its own. If you'd like to go with something a bit more modern instead of what the Bright Kitchen features, you can look towards the KidKraft Uptown Espresso Kitchen. This gives a very modern feel to it, showcasing a stainless-steel-like look to it with espresso brown. It really is the exact opposite in terms of color, although in terms of space and features it is nearly the same. The price sits at around $120, so a few dollars cheaper, you'll just need to decide what color scheme works best for you and your child.
The Little Baker's Kitchen from Step2 is a different brand all together. Now, this is cheaper at $90, so you will save some cash. However, it is for younger children (up to three but not really over three due to the height). It is also almost entirely made from plastic. This gives it more of a cheap appearance to it. It also makes it lighter. This can be problematic if your child likes to climb or is reaching for something on the top of the shelf. It is bottom heavy, so tipping is not as likely, but still possible. Ultimately, if you don't mind spending a few more dollars and love the color scheme, the KidKraft Deluxe Big & Bright Kitchen is a better design overall.
If you are looking for a fun kitchen with a bright look to it, this KidKraft Deluxe Big & Bright Kitchen is an excellent option for you. It isn't terribly large so it should fit against any wall you have a few feet of open space with. While it does not have the extensive storage you might like, it just comes down to what you are looking for and what fits you and your child's needs.
