Below is a selection of my Barton Toys Caroline’s Home Kitchen Furniture, from the 1976 catalogue.
There is nothing complicated about the design of this furniture, it is solid and well made. With a good use of different colour wood, and moulded plastic.
This is a lovely kitchen when it is all put together, I have an extra Kitchen Wall Unit, with out the decorative card attached.
In the catalogue the sink is silver, but mine is white.
This is my rather tatty collection of pots,tray and meat. You can just about make out the sausage and eggs in the pan. I may just paint them, not quite the done thing I know, but they are not worth much in the state they are in.
This oven is made of quite a soft plastic. The red paint has been rubbed of through play on the handles, as least it was well used.
This is quite a neat little fridge and is complete, with the salad drawer at the bottom.
A selection of the food which came with the fridge, I think there are two bottles, perhaps a lettuce, a chicken, a jelly and a butter pack.
On the menu tonight we have, Fish and Chips, Chop, Boiled Potatoes and cabbage, Sausage, Egg and two Red Blobs or Steak, New Potato and Peas, take your pick.
The chair and table are not in great condition, but I am using the dining room table and chairs in the kitchen at the moment. I think the same base on the chair was used for the TV Stand.
It always amazes me that these items are toys and have been played with, and yet the butter dish has its butter, and the toaster has its toast.
