My girls won't be 2 until February, but I thought they were close enough to respond here. We're getting them a play kitchen from CostCo. Here's the link to CostCo's website: http://www.costco.co...?...&lang=en-US. The price if you buy it in the store is $129 (I think).

Here is one that we got for the little ones. The age is 18 months and up and I did post it in the 18 month section too, but I still think that it is a great gift.

We also got the plane (we already have the bus) and the age is 12 months - 5 years.

I saw this and thought it was pretty cool but just not sure if I am that daring.

And this looks like it might be fun although dh disagrees

I wish this was cheaper bc it woudl be great for Kenna.
