Simple or Swank: Retro Kitchens

The burners don't work, but pink retro play kitchens are hot! Aspiring Rachael Rays and, Bobby Flays can get their cook on with either of these pastel versions.

Simple: KidKraft Pink Retro 2-piece Kitchen Set ($180) has high gloss pink and silver accented refrigerator and stove/sink units featuring a see-thru oven door, removable sink and swiveling faucet. Ample storage, a buzzing timer and clicking stove knobs make this kitchen rather realistic.

Swank: Pottery Barn Kids Pink Retro Kitchen Set ($649) includes a pink stove, icebox and sink. Interactive features include: salt and pepper shakers, a ticking timer and sliding cooking gauge. The ice box has storage for play food and a thermometer and kids can clean their dishes in the sink. For child chefs looking to upgrade, an island ($299) and dishwasher ($179) are also available.

They sell the cheaper one at Costco. My girls love it and I'm considering it for Christmas, instead of the Step 2 kitchens.

The Pottery Barn one also comes in red. The cheaper one is great. "Santa" is bringing a kitchen set to our girls and my husband liked the PBK one, just not the price. I'll have to show him the other one.

These are cute, but it seems like the companies are reinforcing gender stereotypes with the pink color. :(

JFTR I saw the simple set on Ebay for a lot less, even with shipping. My 2 year old, Allie, is getting one for Christmas, so I'm pre-shopping
