Remember the Party Kitchen?
If you are a first wave Gen Xer (those now most likely in their 40s) you might remember your younger sibling having one of these, and if you are a second wave Xer like myself (those most likely in their 30s) you may remember playing with one. Nothing was better than going to play at a friend's house and discovering they owned one of these...this toy made for a very fun afternoon.
A friend of mine has this in her kids' play room and she let me take some photos....
Watch out!! These burners look like they're ready to cook anything! The stove top dials can be turned to three different settings in popular early 1980s colors.
The smoky glass (or maybe just plastic) oven front and cutting edge digital timer - so very 80s.
A phone that you can talk on while you cook helps with multitasking -
you can fry eggs while you rotary dial a friend!
The folding side table is waiting for you to come have a seat - there s a delicious chicken leg ready
to be eaten with a spork. Appetizing? No?
Maybe you'd like some waffles instead? They've been on this plate waiting for you since 1983.
(For KB - my wonderful Gen X friend who appreciates rotary phones and plastic waffles a much as I do!!)
