Santa brought this for my daughter (12 mos). Now she's like a mini Rachel Ray!

She's very young, so I removed the 10-20 pieces with small parts. The set is large. There are still a lot of pieces left to play with, which I'm careful she doesn't ever chew.

She likes to sit at her table & pretend with the dishes. We sit on the floor & have great mommy-daughter "moments" stirring in the bowls & pots & talking about what we're cooking. She loves it, & I know she's building vocab & listening skills.

I'm glad this set doesn't look feminine. If my next child's a boy, or if my daughter wants to play house with her male cousins, no problem.

If Santa brings a kitchen next year, she can use these very sturdy plastic dishes with it for years!

One negative--no real storage bin. The box serves as temporary storage. Buy a plastic bin, or get used to little dishes & cutlery all over your house!

This is a really nice set, but not what I expected. I ask grandma to buy it for my girls because I already have several of the Learning Resources play food sets and they are wonderful. I wanted flatware for my girls to "eat" the food off of and cookware for them to "cook" the food in. So I was very disappointed to open the box and see how small the plates, pots and bowls were. I live in china and I try to avoid buying toys over here my kids might chew on, so we're stuck with plates smaller than our eggs and sandwiches. Read the specs, it's only the dishpan that is a good size-the rest is small.

        Comments about Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears! Wacky Factory Building Set:

        I had a gears toy in a previous classroom and was excited to find this set at a garage sale and bring it into my new classroom. When I took the pieces out to test them I was so disappointed to find how difficult they were to put together. The old set I had was very easy to put together but I think it was from a different company. So it's not a total loss, I may put together the green base pieces and put them out with the gears only.

          Love the Gears, bought for my grandkids and they have all had a great time playing. Even the adults join in the fun. Three kids have played at one time with the biggest argument being not enough cranks and base. That said everyone still loves them.

            I practiced building with this set before introducing it to my students for the school year. The base pieces especially were difficult, some of them I couldn't even make fit unless I forced them! Taking the pieces apart was difficult, too.

                I received this as a gift to use in my church nursery education program. I played with a toy similar to this when I was 4 and I'm thrilled that my Sunday school kids will have this experience. My mom, who got it for me, thinks asked for it for myself, which is partly true. I love it and I know the kids will too.

                  This was advertised as large enough to entertain more than one child, so we ordered 3 sets for 3 families.
                  We couldn't find them in any local stores. But there is only one crank per set and everyone wants a crank!!
                  Can you Please offer individual cranks for sale if you can't put more than one in the large set.

                    Grand kid loved it. Took to it right away. He loves gears. The only complaint I have is there were not enough of the six way axles to build the zig zag stairs pictured on the box. Other than that it is great!
