My dh and I found an old wooden chest (trunk) at a bargain shop and my dh sanded it down to the old wood and then painted it. I hten bought some inexpensive props (old hats, weird shoes, my old costume jewelry, wigs,, halloween costumes, scarves etc...) We filled the trunk up with all that stuff and gave it to dd as a dress up chest for her 3rd birthday. She absolutely loved it and still palys with it. I agree with the barbie thing, I won't let my dd play with one! Good luck!
