Yesterday, I mentioned my annoyance at the high price of play kitchens for children. Even if you Make Your Own Play Kitchen, there’s still the price of the pretend dishes to contend with. They often cost $30.
Then yesterday, I was in the Dollar Tree toy aisle, and I ran into a set of pretend dishes for $1. Now, that’s more like it!
The five-piece sets come with a pot, lid, and two utensils. I bought two, thereby saving myself some money, had I been inclined to buy the $30 set. (I wasn’t.)
And yes, the Dollar Tree set isn’t as nice as the $30 set, but considering that these are pretend dishes for my son to bang around, that doesn’t matter to me one bit.
