Rated 4 out of 5 by Juskeya It's Cool but it shuts off during play
I purchased this item for my 2 year-old and she seems to enjoy it. She's in that stage where she wants to cook and play with the pretend food. The only drawback is that it shuts itself off while in the middle of play for no reason. It is really annoying for my child and she gets frustrated when it shuts off on her. The other thing is that the oven door keeps coming off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marci3791 Fun and Educational for my 2 year old son
From the moment that I took it out of the box and put it together, my son loved it! He now knows all of the pieces that go into the cart and is starting to learn to follow directions that are given by the learn mode of the playset. Perfect Christmas gift!

I received a 2-in-1 Shop & Cook Playset from the folks at VTech to review, and I was impressed. I love that this toy is both educational and fun.
Another great thing about this toy is that little ones can easily switch over from the cart to the kitchen on their own. It's a great toy for kids if you are looking for something that it interactive, fun and educational.
Assembly is very easy. Everything snaps together, so there are no tools needed. Unless you count the screwdriver you will need to open the battery compartment.
My only complaint, and reason it didn't get 5 stars is because you can't remove the legs once they have been attached or fold them up. That said, I would definitely recommend this toy to friend, and buy it as a gift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by teachermom1 Great Product for Preschoolers
This is a fun and educational toy for the preschooler or toddler in your life. It transforms from a shopping cart to a kitchen in a few simple steps, and the cart actually talks. It's great for imaginative, creative play, and my daughter, age 3, loves playing with this with her friends - it would make a great toy for a daycare/preschool!

My 5 year-old and 2 year-old love playing with this playset. I love that my toddler is learning colors, numbers and food while playing with his sister. I kinda wish I had 2 sets because they're always fighting over the toy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RoscoeRamblings Love The Space Saving Design!
I received a VTech Shop & Cook playset for free from VTech to review on my blog, but all opinions are 100% my own.
I love that this toy does not take up too much space. Although at 5 years old, my daughter is on the top end of the age range, she enjoyed playing with it. What kid doesn't enjoy shopping for & cooking pretend food? The interactive activities were a bit too basic for her, but that did not detract from her enjoyment. This playset comes with 20 pieces of food & utensils, but my daughter has mixed and matched with what she already had on hand.
I appreciated that assembly was quick & easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MamaRey My 5 YO loves it!
I received this product for free for review purposes. All opinions are 100% my own. I was worried that my almost 5 YO son would prove to be too old for this playset, but alas, I was SO wrong! He LOVES this playset, and definitely "gets into it" and thoroughly enjoys using each knob, button, and accessory. The opportunities are endless, and the two modes of grocery cart and kitchen create the perfect 2-in-1 toy for healthy creativity. I'm impressed with the many smart interactive features of this VTech product, including many sounds, music and directions, and the overall quality. I can honestly recommend the VTech 2-in-1 Shop & Cook Playset™ as a great toy for young children!

Rated 4 out of 5 by TheRockFather A well-constructed, space-saving playset...
When the folks at VTech sent us their new 2-in-1 Shop & Cook Playset for review in The Rock Father's State-of-the-Art Toy Testing Facility (our house), I had some mixed feelings about it. We already have toy kitchens, and we already have toy shopping carts. But this one is different... a transformer of sorts that combines two toys in one, while bringing into the mix the electronic learning element that VTech is famous for.
Well-constructed from durable, high-quality plastic, the 2-in-1 Shop & Cook Playset is definitely geared more toward my youngest (15-months as of this writing), but my four-year-old enjoys it as well. The space-saving design is appreciated by Dad, as is the fact that the accessories are just the right size for tiny hands.
The electronic features do a great job of walking kids "through the process" of making a meal or doing some shopping, giving kids some goal-based actions that have proven to be a lot of fun. Additionally, the music is a big hit.
