A $15 Miracle

Remember this? Well, this year it's a $15 miracle.

We snagged this bad boy from our favorite consignment sale for a mere 15 buckaroos.

Complete with a set of food and dishes, it is already providing tons of entertainment.

The girls open and shut the doors. Put the dishes in the oven. In the sink. Back in the oven. On the floor. Stir their imaginary food and very thoughtfully (and sometimes aggressively) give us bites.

As they grow, they will be able to turn this kitchen into a restaurant or a bakery or whatever their little imaginations come up with. We can add a small table and chairs, fake menus, aprons … the possibilities go on and on.

I spent a ton of money at this sale … way more than I planned to, but this may have been the best purchase of the evening.

$15 is such a small price to pay for inspiring the imagination.

I'm so sad I didn't see you there. I always love the great deals.

Don't forget to get them a tool station as well. :)

When my son was 2, I took him to the toy store for a basketball goal, but he had zero interest in it and instead begged for the laundry set. When we showed up at home with that, my dad said NO WAY and took Jared back to the store for the basketball goal. They came home with a supermarket set :)
