KidKraft Grand Gourmet Corner Kitchen ~ Pretend Play Kitchens

I have two daughters ~ One thing that they both always loved was playing house.  This is one game that has so many possibilities, with imagination the world is open to them.  

I was always surprised at how quick they start playing with babies though.  Both my girls had favorite baby dolls before they were even 2 years old.  Baby dolls quickly led to role playing.  Now what mommy doesn't have a  kitchen?  This is such a fun addition to playing house with baby dolls.  Both my girls always loved playing kitchen.
