On the higher end of the price range. Some sets don't come with the advertised idea book. Contains small pieces – not for kids under 3.
You get a lot for your money with this adorable playset, including a house, 15 pieces, and 3 popular character figures – Peppa, Suzy, and George.
Small pieces mean it's not recommended for kids 3 and under. Some of the components feel thin and flimsy, but kids don't usually care.
Provides all the necessities to fill play kitchens with a variety of realistic looking food items. 30 pieces garner praise for their durable plastic craftsmanship and sharp details.
Some of the pieces aren't true to size compared to real food, but this is a minor concern that most kids won't mind. A few small parts – not for kids under 3.
Little builders will feel all grown up when playing with the realistic-looking tools in this playset that sports the Black + Decker name. Comes with 14 pieces.
Some of tools are sturdier than others – the screwdrivers and toy belt in particular feel somewhat flimsy. For kids over 3 – has small parts.
A cute little percussion playset that's ideal for kids as young as 2, thanks to the sturdy pieces, music, and lights. Plays various styles and melodies, and includes drumsticks.
It's on the small side, but this is plus for parents who prefer portable toys. A few defective models have been reported.

From simple to sophisticated, playsets can help keep children happily busy for hours, allowing them to use their imagination and learn basic skills. The simplest way to describe playsets is that they are pretend/fake versions of something real, like tool sets, kitchens, cleaning supplies, or musical instruments. They are made of durable, hard-to-break materials like plastic and rubber, and are geared toward specific age groups so that they are totally safe, even with a lot of mishandling. They let kids practice before using the real thing. Because styles and components range so widely, so do prices, but you can find a playset your child will love whatever their interests or your budget.
