I paid full price for the washday set, and I think it is worth full price (unlike, say the oven). I just may finally write that review for Kit's washday set.
The only thing that I don't like is the drying rack which stays folded up. The apron is a little two fancy for my Kit, but it is very pretty shade of pink with cute flower details. The hankies are kind of silly, but are pretty and can be used for other things or used for Kit's purse.
The washer is very cool. Yes it is plastic but it is a solid heavy piece. It would be nice if there was a cord to stimulate like the think can be plug in (like Kit's waffle iron). What I really like about the washer is that not only can you crank the rollers to rinse the hankies but you can make the washing dasher move back and forth. The washer can hold two or three pieces of Kit's clothes, so you can really "wash" clothes. Sure you can hunt Ebay for a salesman sample of an iron washer but this one is pretty darn good.
The ironing board is nice and sturdy, it would be nice if it would fold. It's kind of awkward to store and will not go back in it's box. The iron is cute, it's nice and modern for Kit's time. I wish it was a little more detailed, irons in the 20's and 30's would had temperature controlled dials and a nice long cord. The wash basket is what you can get at Hobby Lobby for a couple dollars. The soap is simple box and feels empty. I guess Kit used up the soap.
The only thing I added was some wooden clothes pins and someday (seriously, I'm a procrastinator ) a nice drying line for Kit. I think would had played with it as a kid. Other than that, it is very nice set and if you can, get it for Kit.
