Yep, it's what you think it is. It's a newer version of what precious few of us adult foodies had while growing up ... the play kitchen. I remember having an Easy Bake Oven and that was it for a while. Then there was this stove top looking thing with a fake cast-iron frying pan and fake bacon and eggs, sunny side up. Nothing fancy in any way, the basics. I was quite happy with it, but as I was walking by I saw this sleeker version and immediately stopped. I was transformed back to childhood and as an adult, I was instantly envious, just green with envy, green like the obviously marble (!?!?) counter tops. Because they wouldn't be Formica, not in this kitchen would they? Not with the stainless steel appliances! The contractor went a bit wild with a fullsized-water dispensing fridge ... on the countertop!? Plus, I have a sneaking suspicion that the blank spot beneath the countertop below the fridge ... is for a dish washer. Wow, I have one, but can't use it due to my new digs ... I'm even more green with envy now, and this is just a toy!! Teeheehee ... wow, lemme tell ya ... times are so crazy and neat at the same time. Wish I had this big toy as a kid and then as an adult, I wonder how hard it must be for parents to buy toys for their kids that give off such an expensive lifestyle. Really, stainless steel is pricey! :-)
Anyway, the neat thing about this is the former owner of this cute little kitchen was sitting on her stoop. I asked her if it was hers and told her it was reeeeeally nice (totally jealous, I was) . She said thank you and went back to concentrating on writing a sign that she put on it after I snapped the picture. It said in a cute 'I just learned to write well' penmanship:
"Not for SaleFreefor anyone"(with a smiley face).
Too cute. Some lucky little girl (or boy) is gonna get a neat toy, just from their parent taking a slow stroll on a sunny day like I did. Wish I was Marty McFly right about now ... or at least a young foodie growing up in a foodie friendly world.
