I am thinking of giving my DD a wooden kitchen for Christmas this year. I found this kitchen on Amazon:<br><br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FGuideCraft-Kitchenette-Center-%25252d-Natural%2Fdp%2FB000FI6ZN8%2Fref%3Dsr_1_17%2F002-3890231-9095248%3Fie%3DUTF8%26s%3Dtoys-and-games%26qid%3D1187844317%26sr%3D8-17" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/GuideCraft-Kit...844317&sr=8-17</a><br><br>
Its made by GuideCraft. I can't seem to find any info about the company on google.<br><br>
It says imported, but doesn't say where from! Does anyone know? China would be my first guess.<br><br>
Does anyone have this kitchen, or one from GuideCraft? How easy was it to assemble? There are no reviews on amazon. They also sell it over at Gummy Lump. It seems to be pretty natural with minimal paint.<br><br>
Any other suggestions for a wooden kitchen priced under $200??

We got DD one from <a href="http://www.elvesandangels.com/browse.phtml?section_id=509" target="_blank">Elves and Angels</a> for Xmas when she was 1.5. She just got the ice box for her third birthday. The kitchen is by far the best thing we've ever bought her. She adores it!

we just bought dd <a href="http://www.oompa.com/baby-toys/item/WH706920/WH-Swiss-Toys-French-Kitchen---FREE-SHIPPING.html" target="_blank">this</a> kitchen for her 2nd birthday. she absolutely loves it! i showed her lots of wooden kitchens on line and she actually "chose" this one. it was super easy to assemble, is sturdy, and comes with some food, utensils, pots, etc. it's also on the more affordable side of wooden kitchens.<br><br><a href="http://jas.familyfun.go.com/arts-and-crafts?page=CraftDisplay&craftid=11470" target="_blank">here's another fun option</a>.

Oooh, I love the French Kitchen from Oompa, riverundine, but are the legs sturdy? And you can't beat free shipping! But its crafted in China.<br><br>
I love the Elves and Angels ones too. They are absolutely adorable. And made in America by a family. They look like they would last forever.<br><br>
I absolutely love the idea of making my own kitchen too. And I would have the time and tools. I like the silver contact paper on the doors to look like stainless appliances!<br><br>
Thanks, everyone! Any more ideas out there? Did anyone buy a kitchen only to find out that DC doesn't want to play with it?

I've been looking at these...<br><br><a href="http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/601-3454692-3299363?asin=B000R05W92&AFID=Froogle&LNM=B000R05W92|Play_Wonder_Big_Kitchen_Center_Set&nAID=14110944&ref=tgt_adv_XSG10001" target="_blank">Play Wonder Big Kitchen</a> (it's not very big, though -- only 28" wide, which would be nice because are house is pretty small). Unfortunately it's apparently only offered by Target and is sold out.<br><br>
I absolutely love the <a href="http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/sr=1-13/qid=1187986945/ref=sr_1_13/601-3454692-3299363?ie=UTF8&asin=B0002V84X2" target="_blank">Large Pastel Kitchen</a> but it probably really IS too big. Which it too bad, because it's adorable and looks like it would be great fun.

Such cool links! I had so much fun looking at all of them. Is it weird to get a kitchen for my ds? He loves to play in the kitchen while I cook.

Yes you are absolutely weird to allow your ds to pretend to do kitchen work..what are you thinking? or should it be what are you smoking?<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br><br><br>
Kidding, not weird at all (well, that's assuming I'm not weird!)...I have been looking at kitchens for a while and plan to get one for my son just as sson as I can find a place to put it. He's very imaginative already so I'm sure he will have tons of enjoyment from his very own kitchen.
