I think I figured it out..

I'm pretty sure this is why I am so domestic.

When I was around 9, my mom got me this toy set for my birthday & Christmas one year. Each occasion after that I would get more stuff to add to this set. It was called Kitchen Littles, made by Tyco. The company eventually stopped making them but last year they started coming out again-a variation of the originals. I still have my original, which you can see below. I still have most of the goodies that go with it, too. The stove makes noises, like a timer, kettle, & sizzling bacon. The fridge has a light, and little ice cubes actually come out of the ice dispenser on the door. Water comes out of the faucet and you can also run a cycle on the dishwasher. Each cabinet & drawer opens, as well as the drawer on the stove. This is one of the few toys I still have from my childhood and I plan on keeping it and maybe one day passing it on to one of my own.

Here we are with a bunch of breakfast food laid out. Pancakes, french toast, toast, eggs, bacon, grapefruit, orange juice, milk, doughnuts, cantelope, & jam. Mmm!

Here is the inside of the fridge/freezer. Ice cream comes out of the Dreyer's buckets, chicken comes out of the chicken bucket, the hot dogs come out of their buns, eggs come out of the carton, meatballs off of the spaghetti, the sandwich & hamburger come apart so you can put them together the way you like them, the Italian bread comes out of the package, the birthday cake is sliced, and there's so many more little details like that which make it so much fun!

They sure don't make 'em like this anymore!

You can look them up on ebay and see they go for a lot more now. Toysrus and a lot of fancy toy stores sell the new kitchen littles sets, but they are not really the same..

  1. That's so cool that you still have them. They look familiar to me. :)
