Kid's Cardboard Oven and Sink Set
« on: December 29, 2010, 06:53:45 PM »
I didn't actually make these, my sister did for my kids. They were just too cute not to share!!

She made the pieces out of sturdy cardboard, and my kids love them!! Here's the sink. She used a soap pump for the faucet, and laundry detergent caps for the handles. I'm not sure what kind of plastic bowl she used for the sink itself, but it's very large. She even made a cute outdoor scene, complete with curtains (the curtains had gotten slightly tugged off at this point)! ^-^


There's a hook on the side for a towel.


And space under the sink for pots and pans.


The oven has some storage space on top. :)


And a roomy interior. ;)


Too fun!!

A family friend even gave the kids a shopping cart she used when she was little. It's packed full of play food, and my daughter's [handmade!] teddy bear fits in there perfectly. ;D Perfect companion to their new kitchen set!

The appliances are too fun!  And I remember that shopping cart; I had that too!

Wow that's pretty cool! Looks like it took a lot of effort.

They are fantastic! She did a great job. And gee whiz Larissa, my daughter had that shopping cart too! ::)

Hehe, We never owned that shopping cart as kids, but we did play with one somewhere. My husband said he had one. It must have been very popular!

I loved it!  And it came with food like this:  http://cgi.ebay.com/Mattel-TUFF-STUFF-Vintage-TOY-FOOD-LOT-Grapes-Pop-/400184659111?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5d2cdd4ca7#ht_2385wt_906

except I'm almost sure my grapes were purple.

My MIL picked up the one we had at a yard sale. No food, but she had food from other toys. I had bought the fake fruit and produce from "Venture".
