- This took a good couple of hours to assemble and add the 15 or so stickers. Need to get the angle of the screws right in places. In at least one instance, the instructions tell you to tighten the screw until there is no gap between the 2 joining parts. If you do that you will find the screw head breaks through the outer skin of the plastic. Not much harm done but it will weaken the join and I should have realised this would happen. This leads me on to my only real grudge: I don't like the thick, slightly bendy plastic this play kitchen is made of. This is probably why some of the parts don't dovetail nicely and is certainly why the fridge door doesn't fit snugly. In fact the lower hinge often pops out when opening or closing the door. But all in all it looks pretty good, my 4 year old daughter's face lit up when she saw it, and I look forward to putting it in the garden on a sunny day so she can enjoy the BBQ side of the kitchen while I do the real thing.
