I did not purchase this here, but I did buy this set for my daughter for her 2nd birthday (Feb.). I did my research, compared many kitchen sets, and went with this one - for about 50 dollars more than Woot is offering.
She loves it. She is tall already, but this kitchen set will allow at least a good 3 years of play. The ice cubes are actually pretty big so I don't think of them as a choking hazard. It doesn't really make any fake sounds, but it has all your basic kitchen stuff.
On set up, I can say he had a few problems. The back splash was put on backwards and the shelf was put in the oven. I wasn't involved in the set up so I am not sure how hard the directions were to follow. It will be fixed...sometime.
Overall, this is a great price and a perfect gift for the little girl in your life. She loves being able to make her own meals as I'm cooking in the big kitchen.
P.S. It's sturdy enough that it has managed to survive being climbed upon to the very top, more than once...sigh.
