Kitchen Playset?

Does anyone happen to have a play kitchen, in good shape, that they're getting rid of? I want it! lol.

We're trying to find a cheap one, but it seems all the cheap ones are masculine...its really weird.

  • Really?
    7 years ago when my son wanted one and I was a single mother, that only one I could find that I could afford was a lavender and pink one.
    It's funny how times have changed over the years.

  • I found one at a garage sale this year and it cost $5.00. I was so excited. I went to target and got a basket of play food to go with it, that cost another $5.00. I think it was my best find garage sale shopping this year.

  • My son wanted one too! LOL... instead, I saved a bunch of packaging from the grocery store and resealed them...boxes, cans, bottles from cereal to noodles, coffee, water etc... then I stopped at the craft/dollar store and got fake vegis and fruits. I put then on rubbermaid shelf unit, like at the store. Then I gave him his old bowls and plates, paper plates and spoons, and little chinese takeout boxes. I got him a chef's hat and apron for $1. He now pretends to run a grocery store and restaurant. No need for the overpriced kitchen! He loves it and I don't think I spent 6 or 7 dollars. We priced all the food and made's how I teach him math and currency.

  • My DD's kitchen set is green & beige. lol. She doesn't care though, she'd have fun with it no matter what the color was.

    You can always search on in your area. I was looking on it today and came across two different Dora kitchen sets that people were selling for only about $10 a piece!
