I LOVE the solid pine ones from ROsie Hippo and Magic cabin but I just can't justify spending that kind of money.
On another thread here somebody mentioned that Costco has a wooden kitchen set for $94. And we RAN to get one. You can also order them online. They are painted wood and not as classical in design as the natural style kitchen sets. But they are all wood and sturdy and are much nicer than the plastic ones.
My kids played with the one in the store and loved it.
So if you are watching your wallet I would strongly suggest this one.http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product...rodid=11068941
