From the “my husband thinks he’s pretty funny” file:
A family friend lent us this little toy kitchen that her grandfather, a union carpenter, made for her in the 70s. Since then it’s traveled to her nieces and other little girls of other friends; now Mimi gets to play with it for a while… and she LOVES it. Below the counter are a cabinet and three drawers, big enough to hold all of her play food and her tea set. If I had to recommend the best large gift for a two year old, I’d recommend a toy kitchen.
