i had put too much "goods" in it - too much wooden pasta, too much pretzels and so on. so when it came to cleaning up i had to do the whole work. so the small parts take a break in the cellar now till it's time to come out again.
by the way i learned that it's a mama-habit to arrange all the goods in the kaufladen. the boys immediately threw everything in one pot again. hmmm.
when i was looking for the kaufladen i was sure about one thing: i didn't want to buy a new one. i wanted a vintage one. there are lots of them on sale but some were damaged, too small, too big, too expensive. then i found this one. must be from the 70's i guess. it's perfect for the boys. mats can sell everything while tim prepares the meal in his playkitchen.
i had thought about building one on my own at first but that was way too optimistic and i gave up soon.
but i also liked these kaufladen
