So happy all the pieces were there..crazy what people store away.


I wanna come play kitchen with you...oh so much fun! Susan that is the cutest thing ever! Awesomely fantastic! I love those huge ice trays and that turkey, wow everything is just so darn cute. That is an awesome find. You know that is right up my alley. :)


Oh my goodness, I love it!



So Sweet! I love it!

So adorable!! I'm jealous, it looks like you had so much fun putting it together. I swear that looks exactly like my Grandma's real kitchen.
Let me know when the turkey is done. I'll be right over!:)


Oh, my!!! I think my heart has stopped. I so want to have one of those. Lucky, lucky, you!


Oh, I want to cry looking at it...it is so dang cute! I still love playing around with my dollhouses and my girls Barbie kitchenette, but they aren't vintage. I keep thinking I might do a retro/vintage flip on the kitchenette. :)


That is so cute! I am drooling :)

So cute!!! I love it but I'm glad I didn't have to put it together. Especially with half the instructions missing. (Who am I kidding? I never read instructions - Ha)

This may be the only one in existence with all the little bits and pieces.


I have the same kitchen set that Santa brought me when I was a little girl, some 60+ years ago! Mine is missing a few of the small pieces but is in good condition considering its age. I was thrilled to find your web page! Mine brings back lots of good memories!!

I had the same kitchen, a Christmas present when I was 8 years old. I played with that so much. My Mom hauled it out of the attic when I was about 28 and said I had to take it off her hands. I was not married and figured I would never have kids, so I let my nieces play with it. Then I gave it to them and they destroyed it; lost all the accessories. My sister finally threw it out. Fast forward several years ... I got married, had a beautiful daughter. When she was old enough to play with Barbie dolls, I kicked myself that I hadn't kept that vintage tin kitchen for her. We had to buy an expensive, yet cheaply-made plastic Barbie kitchen. Hated that since it kept coming apart as she played with it. I have been looking for a Marx vintage tin kitchen ever since.

Thrilled you found that. I had one as a child and dreamed of having a window of my own some day looking out at a wishing well. It disappeared somewhere in my young adult years, but I recently obtained one on eBay that is in pretty nice shape. Have enjoyed remembering the pleasure I had all those years ago.

My mom had this kitchen set when she was a little girl. When I was a young girl, and had so many barbies, she gave it to me to play with. It was truly treasured.

When our house burned down, it was something my mom and I sincerely missed, because we both hoped I'd be able to pass it down to my children.

I love the photos you have posted, they remind me how magical a toy can be.


Hi Jennifer~ Thank you for your comment! I'm so glad my photos brought back fond memories for you.

OMG I was so tickled to come across this kitchen set on a Pinterest search. I had this toy as a child and I am 69 years old now. I remember the scene out the kitchen window, the dishes, the cups, and the food items. This toy began my lifelong love of kitchens. Thank you for sharing.

I had this set at age 6 and I loved it. I’m 71 now and still do. I took very good care of it s a child but no idea where it went to. I bought one on eBay 15 years ago and will not let it go. Not sure I would allow my granddaughter to play with it because kids don’t value their toys the way we did. Maybe when she’s old enough to respect it’s age or may be not. But it gave me so many hours of joy.
So happy you found it and brand new. Just lovely !
