Despite already having a toy kitchen which looks a lot sturdier, I fell in love with this at first sight. Being the ideal colour for my girls' bedroom, this pink kitchen has become one of their favourite toys. It isn't too pink either, as it also has blue and white in with the colour scheme.
The plastic which the kitchen is made of feels pretty flimsy when you initially take it out of the box, but I was pleasantly surprised how sturdy it was when fully assembled. It took my husband and I about twenty minutes to assemble it. Instructions were really clear-most of it the pieces slot together and then there are a few screws needed to tighten it up. All the pieces were alphabetically labelled to aid the assembly process. A screwdriver was the only thing we needed to put all the pieces together. The hardest part for us was sticking the sheetful of stickers on the kitchen, as some of them needed placing in awkward positions-and some were so thin that they ripped before we had even removed them from the sheet.
The Disney Princess kitchen comes with 18 accessories, including Mrs Potts, a yellow frying pan, cups and saucers, a telephone, a bowl, a ladle, salt and pepper and toy food (cookies and muffins). I was quite impressed with the quality of the accessories in general, only the muffins were a little bit too soft and easy to damage for my liking. There are also two hooks which attach to either side of the kitchen, I felt that these came off far too easily. This happened repeatedly, so we have now removed them for good. The knobs on the oven also seem to get removed on a regular basis by my daughters-so ideally these would be fixed on better
The Disney kitchen has taught my daughters various phrases, as when you turn the three pink knobs on the cooker, or turn the two pages on the recipe book, various different phrases and sounds can be heard. The pink and white tap can be turned on and off to make a realistic water running sound. Phrases such as "Is Princess Aura awake yet? Breakfast is almost ready" and "Teatime has always been my favourite time of day" can be heard when twisting the knobs. The stoves also have sensors on, so that whenever a pot/pan is placed on the stove, the children will hear phrases and sounds. There are 11 phrases in total on this kitchen.
The oven comes with a shelf which slots into place, but can be removed a little too easily for my liking. To the left of the oven, there are two shelves for pots and pans, and to the right of the oven, there is a large cupboard for storage. When not in use, the oven can hold all the accessories which come with the kitchen and more.
The top part of the kitchen features a fuchsia coloured sink, 2 stoves, a small worktop, a clock and a few little storage areas to store salt and peppers etc. The top part of the kitchen is well decorated, with a recipe book and two towers.
The Disney Princess kitchen is designed for children 3 years and upwards. When fully assembled it is 104cm high, 68.5cm in width and 33cm diameter. It requires 2 x AA batteries, which are placed on the back wall of the kitchen. This kitchen currently retails in Toys R Us for £99.99, although we purchased it in the sale for £49.99.
Would I recommend this kitchen? Absolutely. The kitchen is big enough for my two girls to play alongside each other and features enough phrases and sounds to keep them both entertained for hours on end. Our other toy kitchen, made by a popular company and which cost us four times as much as we paid for this, does not keep them occupied as it doesn't talk to them and get them involved. My daughters enjoy following what the kitchen says, and they play happily on their own with it. This kitchen is fantastic, as the oven is large enough for them to put things in, and take things out. The kitchen is still standing despite the girls playing quite rough with it on numerous occasions-plus it is the perfect addition to any little girls room.
This magical Disney Princess toy kitchen says 11 fun phrases and makes realistic kitchen sounds! Includes 18 accessories including Mrs Potts!
Comes with frying pan, teapot, phone, cups and saucers plus other accessories, Disney Princess characters will talk to you as you work in the kitchen, turn the pages of the recipe book to hear magical cooking ideas, the oven talks and the tap makes realistic water sounds.
The RRP of this set is £99.99, we purchased ours from Toys R Us for £49.99 which was on special offer, I have checked a couple of times and this seems to be a regular offer as I have seen it at this price a few times since.
Age range of 4years plus, although no small parts which pose a choking hazard, I would not recommend any younger as the little ones may not be able to reach it.
My daughter loves Disney Princess and I thought this was an ideal addition to her collection.
Its a fantastic kitchen, my daughter has had hers for about two years, although it has now moved out of the playroom into her bedroom, I still get asked 'mummy, would you like a cup of tea?' in the morning while I am getting ready.
The accessories include plates, muffins, cookies, tea pots, tea cups, saucers, a frying pan and an egg, if you are buying, I would recommend purchasing some additional accessories to go with this.
It does come flat packed, and can take quite a while to build as can be quite fiddly and due to the number of stickers you have to put on.
Some of the parts appear a little flimsy, for example, the shelf in the oven has fallen down a couple of times just from her putting a frying pan in, also, one of the cooker knobs fell off. although not major things, a 5 year old shouldn't really be able to pull the knobs off. Apart from that, the structure is quite sturdy, some of the kitchens can feel unsteady when the children lean against but but not this. one.
Dont forget, it requires 2 x AA batteries which are not included.

I purchased the Princess Disney Kitchen for my daughter's Christmas, she's three years old and is at the stage that she enjoys improvising with her toys and making me endless cups of tea!!
I bought it from Toys r us in December and paid 49.99 for it however I have noticed that the prices varies depending on the retailer so I would definitely recommend shopping around for the cheapest option. Toys r us at time of this review are selling it for 39.99 grr!
On opening the box on Christmas eve (last minute as always) I found myself facing lots of different bits that needed put together and even more stickers - every parent's nightmare - however it actually only took about half an hour to put together as all the bits just clip in to place. The worst bit for me was the stickers, there is a lot of them to go on. Make sure you have batteries, 2 x AA are required and are not included.
The kitchen has a lovely finish, it's very pretty, pink and girly. Its rather big but is shaped that it can sit nicely in the corner of the living room. It comes with a Mrs Potts teapot, a baking tray, a pot, two cookies, one fried egg, frying pan, cups and saucers, some cutlery and a mobile phone.
There is a built in princess recipe book, each princess as her own recipe and with each turn of the page there is a "magical sound". It has its own hooks for the cutlery and phone and its own built in shelves and cupboards.
My favourite thing about this kitchen is the noises. It talks periodically about the recipes my daughter uses and there are sounds when cooking too. You can hear water running when you turn the tap, the water boils when you put the pot on the stove and you can hear the egg frying in the pan, the clever thing with this kitchen is that it doesn't matter what ring on the cooker you use the noise links it with the item that's cooking due to clever, discreet buttons that are on the rings.
The only disappointing point I have with this kitchen is that the knob to turn the oven on doesn't stay in place as securely as the others so the oven doesn't make the noises it should, whether this is a fault with just this one or whether it is a common fault I'm not sure so it would be wise to check and keep the receipt just in case, something I never done!
I honestly think this kitchen is well worth the money I spent on it and will keep my daughter amused for months to come.
We brought this kitchen for my 3 years old daughter for christmas last year. We brought it at toys r us for £49.99 and it was marked down half price which i thought we was getting a bargin however we was later told that most places are selling this same product for £49.99 and toys r us normally mark this kitchen up at £99.99 for a few weeks out of the year and then reduce it to the normal price to make it look like you have got a bargin. I actually phoned toys r u after finding this out and told them that they was scamming people when they put the price up and for the complaint i made i recieved extra points on my gold card.
Nothing much but it was something.
My daughter opened it on xmas day and was amazed and wanted to play with it immediately. Assembling the thing was a little tricky though. It comes in several different pieces, infact everything is in different pieces except the hob which comes as a solid piece. You need a phillips screwdriver to put it together as there are quite a few screws but nothing too fiddly really. alot of slots and grooves with screws just holding them in place and once its built it is very sturdy and doesnt rock at all ( a problem we have had with some kitchens we have brought).
The dimensions for the kitchen when assembled is
104 (h) x 68.5 (w) x 33 (d) cm
it is the perfect height for my 3 year old and we have also had 2 years olds and 7 year olds playing with the kitchen too and it not being an uncomfortable height for them.
Once you have assembled the kitchen it also gives you 2 sheets of stickers to decorate the kitchen with, i recommend you place the stickers in the same places as it looks on the box because some of the sounds are related to some of the stickers (mainly for the little cook book that is situated on top of the hob part.
It is made of pink plastic mainly with purple plastic for the turrets, oven door and some of the fancy edging on the side of the shelves part. The top where the hob is, is made of white plastic with 2 pink hobs with buttons that make cooking and boiling sounds when something is placed ontop. A sink with a tap that makes running water sounds and a flat part that your daughter can place her cups and plates and things.
It has a clock that you can move the hands, The hob buttons turn and make sounds when turned, the oven door opens downwards and there is also a little cupboard to put all the accessories in.
The kitchen also comes with Mrs Potts (kettle from beauty and the beast) cups and plates, pans, play food and cakes, cooking spoon and mobile phone (both phone and spoon hang on the hook at the side of the turrets.
It does require 2x AA batteries which are not included
The one problem i have found with this is the hob buttons can easily come off if pulled a little and i am constantly having to push them back on.
Its a light kitchen so its easily moved around but its not heavy enough for little ones to be picking up and moving themselves. It weighs 16.30KG approx).
I am really pleased with this toy, its entertaining for my daughter, infact she hasnt stopped playing with it for the past 2 weeks.
This is perect for any little girl in your family although for safety reasons it does state that it is not suitable for children under 36 months
My daughter has just turned 2 and for her birthday her grandad bought her the Disney Princess Kitchen. It cost £49.99 from Toys R Us which is the same price as in many other stores. Toys R Us sometimes mark it up to £99.99, so that when they reduce it to the normal price a few weeks later, they can say it's half price! (This annoys me somewhat, I go to Toys R Us very regularly and have always seen the kitchen at £49.99, NEVER higher. Then for a few weeks in October they put it up to £99.99, then reduce it back down to £49.99 claiming it is half price, when 48 weeks of the year it is that price anyway!) I digress...
The kitchen is mostly pink with some purple trimmings (ie. te turrets of the kitchen, oven door etc.) It stands quite tall, approx 53cm from the floor to the hob part, and then a further 25-30cm to the top of the turrets. The age range for this toy is 3 years+. My daughter is 2 and this is an ideal size for her (and she is small for her age) so I would say that the age range would be appropriate for 2-3 year olds, possibly a bit older. There are no small parts to choke on.
Putting the kitchen together is ridiculously fiddly. It comes in several parts, all you need is a crosshead screwdriver, but there are lots of parts to it. The instructions are clear and easy to follow, but it still takes a good 10-20 minutes to assemble at least! It also comes with 2 sheets of stickers to apply. They are applied to the various nooks and crannies of the kitchen and easy to apply - although they are easily ripped so accuracy is key!
The kitchen comes with a teapot, saucepan, plates, fried egg, cakes, cups, biscuits, casserole dish, utensils and a phone. The phone and utensils hang on hooks either side of the kitchen, and everything else can either go in the cupboard on the left hand side, or the two shelves on the right hand side. The oven comes complete with a plastic rack to balance a tray on.
There are two rings on the hob, one for the kettle, one for a pan and each have their own knobs and sounds. There is a flat area for putting things on, a small sink and tap, and a recipe book that makes sounds. There is a small clock (not functional) and hooks either side of the kitchen to hang utensils. The oven is big and spacious with its own rack.
There are sound effects too - running water when you run the tap, kettle boiling, pan frying, Princess voices, oven buzz and beep etc. These are quite realistic and fortunately not long, so when you set the oven timer for example, you can turn it as much as you want, it will still beep after a few seconds.
This is a fantastic toy, a little bit big for your average living room but good nonetheless. It is quite lightweight, certainly not light enough for a toddler to move, but light enough for me to pick up when I want to mop underneath it. It does look a bit flimsy but it is actually well put together and quite sturdy. All of the accessories are plastic and none are small enough to be a choking hazard.
My daughter absolutely loves this kitchen - she loves making cups of tea for mummy and cakes for her teddy. A brilliant toy, can't really fault it!
My daughter was given this kitchen for a first birthday present as it was on offer at half price in toys r us. It is on offer a lot, so if you are thinking of buying one I would hunt around to get it at half price. My daughter is now closer to 2 and uses the kitchen more regularly and appropriately than she did at first. She loves the musical, talking cookery book feature and the different sounds that the hob makes with the different pans e.g. it sizzles with the frying pan.
When we were putting it together initially I did worry that it was a little bit flimsy, but after using it that isn't such a big concern. The door from the cooker has come off a few times, but is very easy to replace and hasn't been damaged. Nothing else has ever come off the cooker, which is good, bearing in mind how often you can see play kitchens missing the oven knobs.
My only criticism is that the oven shelf doesn't really fit very well (it is too small) which means it often ends up on the 'floor' of the cooker, rather than being used properly. Also the kitchen doesn't come with very many accessories such as food, just a couple of pans, utensils and cakes. It would be worth buying an extra pack of food to go with this, as then it encourages children to play with it more.
We bought this for our little princess this christmas and I think that it is a great toy! I managed to buy this for half price at Toys R Us and I believe that it is regularly on sale there as a friend of mine also bought it for her daughter earlier last year on the same offer. The kitchen is supposed to be the 3 years plus but I have found that it is fine for our daughter (she was 17 months when we bought it and now 21 months old). There are no small pieces that could cause a choking hazard and the whole kitchen is generally well made when put together.
Putting it together was definitely a challenge though - it came in a lot of small parts and two massive sheets of stickers to attach in the right places! I was a little concerned when putting it together as when unassembled the pieces all feel very flimsy and like they could snap very easily. I did however manage to put it all together without breaking any of the pieces. It took me around an hour in total but when it is fully assembled it does seem a lot stronger.
The kitchen also comes with accessories including pots and pans, play food, utensils and a mobile phone. The utensils and mobile phone are designed to hang on hooks on either side of the kitchen but unfortunately my daughter snapped off both of the hooks within 10 minutes of playing with it! I tried to glue them back on but she snapped them off again straight away. It is not a major problem though as there is so much storage within the kitchen that there are plenty of places to put them instead.
The kitchen has a number of different sound effects including running water when you turn the tap, recipes when you flick through the recipe book, hob sounds when you place pots on them and also when you turn the cooker knobs. Only problem with this is that one of the knobs on our kitchen is slightly tempramental and decides to go off whenever it feels like it so we do occasionally get woken up in the middle of the night to a kettle boiling or snow white telling us that dinner is ready!
Besides from the couple of little niggles I mentioned with this kitchen, I think it is a lovely toy and perfect for any little princess.
We purchased this Kitchen as a joint gift from Santa for our almost 4 year old, and 5 year old daughters. We ordered ot from ToysRus, reduced from £79 to £39,which I thought was good value, though have since seen it for slightly less else where.It arrives in the form of a flatpack toy, in a large pretty disney princess box.We didnt unpack it or construct it till Christmas Eve as it was easier to hide in the box! My husband put it together. He is very experienced at toy assembly,we have 6 children and he has been assembling toys for nearly 12years! He said that this was the most awkward toy he had ever put together! Not complicated as such, just awkward and it took him over an hour.
Once assembled however, andwithall thestickers in theplace itloked lovely. Really pretty and exactly the sort of thing little girls would love. The plastic was sturdy and it all fitted together well and was not flimsy like some other toy kitchens we have had in the past.
It comes with alovelyset of accessories, which means it can been enjoyed andplayed with straight away without having to go and spend more money on extra acessories. The included items were: a spoon and spatula which could be hung on little hooks, a frying pan,a fried egg, 2 biscuits and 2 chocolate muffins,2 plates, 2 cups, a salt and pepper shaker,and thelovely Mrs.Potts Teapot. Some of the accessories were a bit basic, but still perfectly adequate to be enjoyed by our girls and the tea pot was lovely.
The sounds made by the kitchen are an added bonus and include a frying sound when the frying pan is placed on the hob,a whistling when the teapot is placed on, a tap sound and talking sounds when you turn the pages of the little plastic built in recipe book.
Another bonus is the brilliant large pretty cupboard which means that all the accessories can be carefully stored away when not in use and not spread all over the house!
All in all I think this is a wonderful toy kitchen. Gorgeous and pink and girly, lovely accessories and extra features. A pain to assemble, but worth it in the end!
We bought this Disney princess talking kitchen from toys r us for £29.99 for my daughter who is almost 6 last year for her birthday. She still plays with it today as much as when she fist had it and it has never once left our front room. A few of her friends have asked for this kitchen after playing with my daughters. It keeps her amused for hours!
It comes in a box which you need to assemble yourself; I have read a few reviews which have stated that it is quite easy to assemble. I am no whiz when it comes to diy and self assembly, however, I wouldn't describe myself as completely incompetent, BUT.. I found assembling this item a complete nightmare, the instructions were very clear but I found the plastic parts were very hard for me to push and fix together at first. I found them very stiff, also the stickers were difficult to line up properly first time and when they were stuck down, they were well and truly stuck. I didn't align one properly, therefore I tried to take it back off to re align, I failed miserably ripping it in the process.
I eventually gave up and called in the experts. (My father) He has experience fixing these sorts of things. He seemed to be able to fix it a little better than I did. Perhaps brute force was needed and I was being too delicate!
However, once the kitchen was eventually set up, it was amazing. I was impressed myself; it is everything a little Disney princess would love. It is brightly coloured, has great sound effects from the hob and tap. However the tap seems to go off every now and again randomly, especially when the kids are in bed and im watching a scary film!
Other features include a little plastic recipe book attached which has the sounds of one of the princesses talking when the page is turned. The kitchen has two hob rings with sizzling sound effects, a small sink with the scary tap (my daughter loves it, its only scary to me!) An oven with a little rack inside and a closable door, it also has shelves on one side and a big cupboard on the other where my daughter stores all of the pots and pans and of course Mrs Potts, which all came with the kitchen at no extra cost.
There were 18 accessories in total including a frying pan, cups and saucers, bowls, plastic muffins, a telephone and utensils.
The Dimensions of the kitchen are:
104 (h) x 68.5 (w) x 33 (d) cm
Perfect for ages 3 and over in my opinion.
It also takes 2 AA batteries which are included.
The Disney Princess talking kitchen is a bright colourful make-believe toy suitable for little girls aged three years and above and comes with lots of fun accessories.
The kitchen itself comes boxed and assembly is required. The instructions are very clear and identification of the component parts is easy, and you only need a crosshead screwdriver to put it together, as a lot of the joins are snap together interference fit. I was initially afraid to apply the required pressure to these joints for fear of cracking the plastic but it all went together OK in the end. The unit requires 2 AA batteries for the sound effects and these are included in the box.
The thing which takes the longest is applying the stickers to the assembled kitchen - if you don't get them aligned correctly first time do not attempt to re-peel them because they rip. Given that one or two of them are quite fiddly re-peelability is an essential. It took me about 45 minutes from start to finish and the assembled product measures approximately 100cm high x 65cm wide x 35cm deep, so isn't as bulky as some of the other products on the market, and is easily moved to hoover underneath.
The kitchen features a talking hob which is activated by turning the control knobs on the front or by putting a pot or pan on the hob ring. The tap makes a running water sound when turned and the recipe book talks when the pages are turned. At the front of the unit is a large oven with a pull down door - this also makes sounds and talks when the knob is activated. In total there are 11 "fun" phrases and kitchen sounds. My daughter thought the sounds effects were great, I thought they were typical American Disney World ultra twee, saccharin - like, polished with pixie-dust phrases, which quite frankly got on my nerves after ooh about 30 seconds.
Accompanying the kitchen are 18 princess themed accessories including a Mrs Potts teapot, cups, saucers, spoons, plates, tea tray, frying pan, phone, cup cakes and cookies. The phone and the spatula are stored on hooks on the side of the kitchen and the rest of the bits and bobs easily fit in either the shelves or the side storage cupboard.
It isn't the biggest or most robust child's kitchen I have come across and it is made of the sort of plastic that will crack quite easily if treated to a little abuse (which small kids have a habit of doing!) My daughter is now 6 and although she still plays with her kitchen I feel that she is too big for it as she towers over the hob which is 53cm from the floor so I would say it is best suited to children aged 3-5 years.
Compared to the competition, from a little girl's perspective this kitchen is one of the most visually attractive on the market with its pink, purple and white colour scheme which fits in so well with the décor in a girl's bedroom. From a Mum's perspective it is good that the accessories can be stored in it to minimise the clutter.
As for value for money, I bought mine half price at £29.99 which is just about acceptable given its small size and the fact it is a bit flimsy - had I paid any more I would have been gutted. Ideal for short-term use with small children, if you want something substantial which will last a few years go for a Little Tykes, Smoby or ELC kitchen.
My 5yr old daughter has had the Disney Princess Kitchen for almost 3yrs and still plays with it.
This has got to be the best value toy my daughter owns. I paid £29.99 for the kitchen in Toys R Us. This was a half price offer but I have noticed they seem to reduce it to this price every Christmas.
Everything about this kitchen is completely girly and very pretty including the 18 accessories that come with it. Accessories include frying pan, cups, saucers, teapot, cooking pot, phone, salt and pepper pots and other kitchen tools.
The kitchen has talking features and cooking sounds but to be honest we took the batteries out as the kitchen was in our lounge and we didn't want to listen to it all day. The sound features are not needed for your child to get full enjoyment out this toy anyway. The sounds include talking oven, water sounds from the tap and you can hear the princesses talking when you turn the pages of the little recipe book at the front of the kitchen.
The kitchen features a working cupboard you can store your bits in, easy to open and close oven, knobs that you can turn and a clock with movable hands. The kitchen itself is compact but a great size and sturdy. After almost 3 years and lots of play it is still in one piece and has loads of life left in it! I have recommended this kitchen to friends so many times and no-one has ever been disappointed with it.
The only down side to this toy is that it doesn't come assembled. It took 2 of us to assemble it as it can be a bit fiddly and awkward at times but once it is assembled you will have this toy for years.
This magical Disney Princess toy kitchen says 11 fun phrases and makes realistic kitchen sounds! Includes frying pan, teapot, phone, cups and saucers plus other accessories, so you can serve your disney friends in style!
