STEP2® COMPANY UNVEILS GRAND WALK-IN KITCHEN & GRILL™

New Design Represents the Kitchen Every Adult Wants, Only Smaller

STREETSBORO, OHIO - February 7, 2012 - One of the joys of childhood is observing and imitating parents in their daily activities. The new Grand Walk-In Kitchen & Grill™ by Step2® offers all the features adults desire in their real kitchens - grill, stovetop, "stainless steel" refrigerator, etc. - to engage little chefs and help them to establish awareness about proper eating habits through play.

"At Step2®, we believe that kitchens are among the most meaningful products we offer that encourage social interaction between children and parents," said Jerry McDermott, chief marketing officer, Step2® Holdings. "Kitchens give children the opportunity to explore food combinations and 'cook' meals for their parents; which in turn supports the idea of dining at home and preparing balanced meals essential for proper growth and development."

The Grand Walk-In Kitchen & Grill™ (MSRP $259.99) offers all the bells-and-whistles and has room for multiple children to play inside and out. The exterior provides an attached dining area and realistic electronic grill. Two additional electronic features include the stove top and phone. A 104-piece accessory set is included, and the kitchen was designed with plenty of storage to keep the kitchenware and play food organized - whether it be in the "stainless steel" refrigerator, oven, basket cubbies or below the grill. The electronic features require 4 "AA" and 2 "AAA" batteries (not included).

The Grand Walk-In Kitchen & Grill™ will be unveiled in the U.S. at the New York Toy Fair, Feb. 12-15. It will be available exclusively at Toys "R" Us. Show attendees will be able to see this and other kitchens at the Step2® booth (booth #1373).
