CSN Stores Review: KidKraft Pink Vintage Kitchen

When I was a little girl I remember going to a friends house for a playdate and she had a play kitchen.  To me, it was magical, fairy-tale like and I just HAD to have one.  Perhaps I shouldn’t tell you that my magical fairytale moment turned into nothing more than a self made kitchen made from a cardboard box and although it was fantastic that we made it ourselves, it wasn’t exactly “fairtytale-like”, if you know what I mean!  

The magical kitchen that I saw that day never quite left me and when I had two little girls of my own, I knew that one day a beautiful play kitchen would arrive in their playroom at some point.

The problem with becoming an adult is that you research everything before you buy!  So for months I have read reviews, shopped at multiple website and asked friends what their recommendations would be, in an effort to find that magical, fairy-tale-like kitchen that’s just right for my girls and I’m happy to report that we have found it!  What little girl wouldn’t love this Kidcraft Pink Vintage Kitchen

KidKraft Pink Vintage Kitchen
Cook up some fun with the Kidkraft Pink Vintage Play Kitchen! This wooden toy kitchen includes a soft pink design with vintage features just like you remember. The microwave, oven, cabinet, refrigerator, and freezer doors open, so your child can collect, cook, and store all of their kitchen accessories! The Pink Vintage Play Kitchen is packed with tons of storage space to keep your childs playroom clean and organized!

When the boxed arrived, my first impression was “I need help to drag this into the living room” was really heavy!  Once I opened the box and looked at the pieces neatly layed out and organized, I was certain that this was going to be more of a piece of furniture that would remain with us for some time, rather than just a toy that would be tossed out a few months down the road! From the beautifully organized hardware pack that was neatly packaged inside to the way the holes were drilled into the wood panels, it’s quite obvious that KidKraft equals quality!

That’s One Pretty Hardware Pack!

Putting the kitchen together proved to be a bit of a task and although it was’nt difficult to understand, it did take a few hours to pull the kitchen together with all of the panels and screws.   Building this “play” kitchen was more like putting together cabinets, but once built we were all in love!

There’s plenty of space to store play food and cookware and all of the cabinets and doors open and close with ease.  the knobs on the stove make a “clicking” sound, so that little chef’s can really feel like their imitating mom and dad!  The kitchen itself is a bit short, and although my 2 1/2 year old is the perfect height for this kitchen, my nearly six year old towers over it a bit.  I would suggest this kitchen for children 4 and under.

We spent hours…quite literally…playing restaurant, as the girls took turn being the head chef at a quaint cafe inside Disneyland…c’mon get your imagination working here!  The KidKraft Vintage Kitchen is a big hit in our house and I know it will be in yours too!

Traveling with Crayola Color Wonder: A Giveaway

As a family who lives to travel, we have seen our fair share of boredom while traveling abroad. The famous “are we there yet”? echos in the background of nearly every vacation and between long drives, flights, layovers and the occasional mishap in between, keeping young children busy during these times can prove to be quite the task! However, with a little imagination and the help of Crayola, you can hand over some mess-free fun and keep them occupied while heading towards your destination.

Crayola Color Wonder
Crayola Color Wonder has some fabulous products that you can take along with you on your next trip and the best part is there’s no clean-up involved! Children love that the Color Wonder markers create masterpieces that magically appear before their eyes and moms love that there won’t be any drawings left behind on airplane seats or worse yet, the family car!

If you have an upcoming trip planned, consider packing a few of these travel friendly products from Crayola Color Wonder to help your children stay entertained:

Color Wonder Lap Desk – Provides children with a large hard-top surface for creation on the go! Includes a handle and detachable pillow with a zippered closure that can be used to store Color Wonder markers and paper! The Lap Desk also includes 12 re-stickable papers that will allow the paper to stay in place for on-the-go fun! Includes 5 Color Wonder markers.

Fingerpaints & Paper – Fingerpainting in the car? Yes it’s possible with the Crayola Color Wonder Fingerpaints & Paper! Combine this set with the Color Wonder Lap Desk and children can imagine their way right to your destination. The set comes with 5 clear, fast drying gels, in a hand shaped storage container, a built-in finger cleaning sponge and 12 extra-wide sheets of Color Wonder paper.

Markers and Paper – this set includes a drawing pad of 24 Color Wonder pages and 5 Color Wonder markers!

Stow & Go Studio – Provides a hard drawing surface with “stay put” clips that can accomadate a single sheet of paper or an entire Color Wonder activity book! Comes with 4 Color Wonder markers that have their own attached storage case and a Color Wonder activity book.

Story Stampers – This set is so much fun and comes with 5 Color Wonder markers, a Color Wonder stamp pad, 6 sea creature stamps, and an 18-page coloring pad with undersea background settings! Each page in the coloring pad is different, allowing children the ability to create a new undersea adventure every time!

My girls were sent one each of the above mentioned Color Wonder products and we have had hours of fun! We will be taking another roadtrip down to Carlsbad in a few weeks and I stored the Color Wonder products in a “to-go” bag and we will be taking them in the car with us! The stamp pad is certainly my favorite. It wasn’t until Big Pea was five that I let her loose with any stamps, as her sister watched from the sidelines, and you can imagine Lil’ Pea’s delight when she was able to use her own stamp pad.

I love that there’s NO MESS!
