When I was little I had a green play kitchen that I use to love , it was made of metal with the burners painted on it ( insert old age joke, lol) and it came with a fridge. I had that kitchen until it became rusted ( probably from the asbestos and inappropriate materials that never should be around children, but it was back in the day, so what can you do) ....so when I saw my niece become some enraptured by pots and pans, I wanted to buy her a play kitchen. Little did I know that the toy industry has taken this to a whole new level! Gone were the days of dangerous sharp corners and making your own sizzling sounds while cooking... they now have battery operated sounds, dishware,dishwashers and a variety of other kitchen replicas, in addition to the "real kitchen price"..Pottery Barn has the nerve to sell a Children's Kitchen for $700.... This Play Kitchen D.I.Y is via Ana White and was made with just a few tools , wood boards and kitchen accessories. The great thing about it is that you can completely customize it to your liking and you can easily buy cheap knobs at the hardware store.
