Before second grade Scarlett’s dad made her a mini kitchen set to play with. After all, every Southern born gal needed to know how to cook, right?
Here is a picture of Scarlett and her dad who built her a mini kitchen set from 1960 in Atlanta, Georgia (sorry for the picture quality).
This was before the easy bake oven which Kenner introduced in 1963, and which Hasbro still manufactured as of late April 2016. You can still buy an ultimate version on Amazon!
The cool thing about Scarlett’s kitchen set is that you had to use your imagination…nothing really cooked anything or kept anything cold but many a hot pot of tea was made and enjoyed with Dad on the back porch.
We would love to share your stories and pictures of an era that has gone by…now kids just use their smart phones and have Uber deliver the “eats” they have purchased using THEIR credit cards. The world has changed for sure.
