the littlest kitchen

i am seriously conflicted about the play kitchen. i can't tell you how many times over the past six months that i've gone online looking for the perfect one. i am in love, love, love with this wooden one that i saw on the selby but $300 - wow. i know that is the price you pay for good craftsmanship, non-toxic materials, etc but still. it's a fake kitchen. sooo i have asked elodie's crafty grandpa to make one for her 3rd birthday! we have been looking up plans online to modify and i'm so excited to make this little family heirloom. if anyone has one that they particularly love, please share!

  3. My friend Ryan has one. He blogs at pacing the panic room if you wanna ask him where he got his. It's super cute.

  4. ours is plan toys....the prices are fairly steep, but i really feel like it is worth it! they use sustainable materials and nontoxic paints and i really think the toys are beautiful and clever. my favorite part of the refrigerator are the wooden ice cubes. plan toys has by far the most beautiful food and accessories! also green toys makes more affordable dishes and pots and pans and everything is made from recycled goods. hope this helps!

  7. we have this one ($180) and it's great, almost the same as the one you like. there was a little bit of assembly but it was fast & easy.
