The little one hasn't seen it yet, but she has a good imagination and I think she will have fun with this. I did look for a little plastic sink and stove combination instead, but they took up too much room, and I wanted there to be space for the little one and her friends to play.
The burners were put on with permanent marker, by the way. I cut some cardstock the size I wanted and then traced around it. Then I folded the square in half to use as a guide to draw the lines inside the burner, leaving space in the middle.
This was made to stay in the play house and be weather proof.

I had to improvise a stove. This is a little hinged craft box on its side, and I painted the silver square and "knobs", and the burners are silver buttons glued on with gorilla glue.
I also had to improvise the couch. I found a half circle plastic container and cut it down for the frame. I intended to have a pattern for this, but had to alter it and change it so much as I went that a pattern would never have worked. You could also make a couch without an inside frame and just stuff it well to make the shape.
I did the floors from individual stick on squares I found at a hardware store for about 69 cents each. I used tin shears to cut them to size,but I did lay down newspaper first to make a pattern for that.
