'K' for Kids Filing Cabinet

Bake Shoppe Play Kitchen

I had planned to get a play kitchen for Eleanor’s second birthday, which is not until April. I thought I would go with something gender-neutral and made of wood, and I even considered making one myself. Then I happened to see this one in an FAO Schwarz store that was closing, marked down to $80. It is made of wood at least, and I can always paint it if I choose to (though the pink isn’t as bright as it looks in the photo).

Plus the bake shoppe section can be detached, and it would be really cute as a puppet theater with just a few slight alterations, yes?

    I think it is a great price for the kitchen, and it is really cute too… When we were looking for one, there were so many… Since my son is just two, we chose the Kidkraft Retro Red kitchen, it is adorable and smaller than most of the kitchens. He can reach everything and still has plenty of room to grow with it. Also is has a small footprint, which was a bonus since we wanted to be able to move it from small space to small space. (I reviewed it on his blog…


    But no matter what kitchen you get, the little ones will turn it into all sorts of things… Puppet theaters, car washes, tool benches, farmer’s markets. Play kitchens rock!

      I love the green one that’s linked to in the comments! The backsplash is what does it.

    I have to say, I haven’t found any kitchen as adorable as the one my hubby and I just built for my Miss O. (yes, Im tooting my horn, sorry! toot toot!)We painted it off white so that it could be gender neutral, and I love that it is three pieces so that it is easily transportable, rearrangeable, and it is only 16×24, unlike the picture depicts… it was so easy, and I smile every day I see it.

    We got one for Will for Christmas from Overstock. It’s red and solid wood, very cute, less than $90. Might be worth a peek!

    Hope whoever is doing all that drywall sanding is taking good care that the dust doesn’t bother the mama!

    My church was closing down a few years back. In the sunday school room, they had an old play kitchen that I remembered from when I was a kid. I quickly said I would take that! It has been sitting in my basement for over 5 years and when I have children, I hope they use it as much as I did when I was a child.

    I think your babies will get lots of use out of it.
