I am thinking about upgrading my kid's kitchen to one of the nicer, Waldorf ones. We currently have <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%2FEduco-My-Creative-Cookery-Club%2Fdp%2FB000A6L6WK" target="_blank">this</a> kitchen and it is a bit small for my growing children. I'm a bit concerned about whether my kids will be able to move (or tip over, for that matter) the Waldorf-style kitchens because with our current one, my son moves it around and it becomes many other things (like the caboose of a train) in his play. It is small and pretty light. I'm looking at getting the Camden Rose kitchen from Palumba, with the hutch. If you have an active child, has it been an issue for you?

We have one of the Elves and Angels ones......no issues with tipping. However, my kids don't move it around much at all.

We have the Camden Rose kitchen w/ hutch & I absolutely LOVE it!! It is incredibly beautiful. It is also 100% hardwood, so it is pretty hefty. I think that a child would have some difficulty moving it. We have the fridge, too, & it is v large and spacious.

Over the course of a few years I have found it a bit easier to add and take away various components. Our kitchen is based on a nice solid wood coffee table that I found on craigslist. Tipping hasn't been much of an issue as it has a low center of gravity. We set a very nice Waldorf stove top like <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%2FAlex-Wooden-Cook-Top-Playstove%2Fdp%2FB00004U3FZ" target="_blank">this</a> and a white dishpan on it and this has worked pretty well. I'm working on making a checkered cloth skirt for one side of it.<br><br>
I've added a wood refrigerator to hold some food storage as well. I've found that "working" on the kitchen occasionally and adding components as the children have grown has made it nice project for the group of us ~ which is very Waldorf-y <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
This is a nice homemade example <a href="http://evesecopinions.com/family/make-your-own-waldorf-play-kitchen/" target="_blank">as well.</a>
