i am so excited about the new toy i found for my son. i have been wanting to buy him a little kitchen for a long time, but had several drawbacks. 1) my husband didn't feel like spending the money. 2)we are always "about to move" so i am never excited about purchasing big items. 3) i mostly wanted it to keep in the kitchen because my son loves cooking with us, & i feel like it would get the most use there.
while browsing my local classifieds i found my solution: a tabletop stovetop by alex toys. it is a stovetop with nobs that i sit on my countertop adjacent to my stove. the best part about this model is that it also turns into a storage box for his pots & pans(not included)! i was able to get mine for only $4 through the classifieds but was ready & willing to buy it for a full price of $18.99. had i not found this stovetop used i might have been tempted to go for the melissa & doug stovetop which comes with the dishes. i would have missed the storage feature though. so pleased with this find...
