My Little Kitchen

I just ordered Avery this play kitchen...Whenever a friend has one, she's all over it, and really, how could I pass up this terribly cute, retro version? (It also gets great parent reviews - muito importante!)
I couldn't avoid buying the kitchen from a Big Box store, but I was hoping to go more of the "buy local" or handmade route with the play food to round out her Cozinha Pequena.

I found these handmade felt foods on Etsy - they are beyond adorable!
Fruits and Veggies do the body good! Just wait...
Chicken dinner...I'll take the drumstick, please!
Here's some petit fours and tartlets for those with a taste for sucrose.This has to be my favorite - complete sushi meal!
This woman's eye (and patience) for detail is amazing - but she only sells the patterns for these little darling yummies - not the goodies themselves! So, do any of you have any experience with making these felt foods? Are they difficult to make? I'm just crazy about them!

My parents gave our lil' crumb the modern kitchen from Pottery Barn, and like you, I had to find Etsy felt/knitted goodies to add to the fun!

My kids have that exact kitchen and LOVE it!!! It took quite some time to put together, but it was worth every second. Very well made and very solid. We bought a bunch of kid-sized pots, pans, "glassware", and baking utensils from Ikea that are super-cute and look like the real thing, only miniature.

Love the felt food. If only I had the time...

Love your blog!

Darling kitchen. Your little girl will spend hours playing in it with all her cute felt food. I, too, ran up against the same problem when I searched for food on Etsy.

Hi I think I have died and gone to heaven! When I was a little girl living in Kathmandu, my mum bought me a little cooker and copper pots and pans,which I used to play with, I called it my gas set. Your little girl is one lucky lady how adorable! x

My daughter loved her play kitchen! And all of her friends did too, especially the little boys. They couldn't get enough of it. This retro one is adorable!

Wow that food is adorable -- knowing my sewing skills though the food wouldn't look nearly as appetizing if I had to make it though!
