Dora the Explorer Talking Kitchen
( Fisher-Price $79.99 Score: ) If you have a fan of Dora at home, this will be a very tempting gift. Our recommendation would be to buy a Dora doll or Dora DVD to fulfill that Dora need, but to pass on this toy kitchen. Our first objection to this kitchen is that it talks, alot. Preschoolers can and should make up their own pretend stories about what they're cooking. To have the toy direct the action misses the point of having kids use their own language and imagination -- trust us they have plenty of both once they get started. Our other complaint about this toy is its design. It looks like a licensor's fantasy. While we like many licensed based toys, the kitchen has a very large plastic Dora that struck us as over the top. Instead, we'd recommend one of the non-talking plastic kitchens from Step 2 or Little Tikes or the wooden appliances from Small World Toys.
