Play kitchen ideas

I had an idea for a folding play kitchen, so I found a cardboard box that is just the right size and made a full scale cardboard mock up!

All folded up. this is the range side of it. of course the oven door doesn't actually open, structural stability of cardboard and all the that.

then we pull out the sink. the legs on it are trianguar and the bowl is not in it, because of the structural stability of cardboard and all the that. the faucet would slide into the back board of the range, but isn't modeled.

Then the back has a table that folds out

The box the range is made out of is 24" tall, which is armpit height on little Bear, 12" wide and 13" deep

We have decided not to do the fold out table, it doesn't add much to it and with my children, makes it less stable.
The boys have been playing with it. the back board of the range came off, the sink gets pulled all the way out, but otherwise it is still together.
The Hubby and I need to go over the design and decide on materials and hardware then I can make the finished pattern.

what do you think?
