Growing up one of my favorite toys was my kitchen set (it looked like this).
I remember getting it for Christmas one year, I must've been four or five.
We had opened all the presents & were watching the
Macy's Christmas parade together as my mom made breakfast.
Suddenly my parents said there was someone at the door & they wanted me to open it.
I was a very shy kiddo so this was a bit of a stretch but with a bit of coaxing,
I opened the door to find a large item covered with a blanket and a bow on it at our door...
When the blanket was removed to my surprise a Fisher-price kitchen set was revealed! It was AWESOME!
Totally made of plastic (it was the 80's) but it had everything any kitchen would have-
a stove, a sink, a toaster, a little table, pots & pans & all the fake food you could think of.
My dad quickly set it up for me & my brother to play with & I remember spending
the rest of the morning making "eggs" for my dad sculpted out of play-doh which he pretended to eat.
Anyway, thanks for coming down memory lane with me just there.
I had no idea that IKEA made such cute stuff for play!
Plus they have a kitchen set too which you can likely
bet Baby Fry will have someday to play with...
How about you? What was your favorite toy as a kid?
