I had seen All-American Family furniture on the Walmart site. I thought about purchasing it, but was hoping to see it up close and personal in the store. While traveling this week, I visited a Walmart and there they were. Two of the sets on clearance for $4.00 per box (they were $5, so I still would have bought them) - the kitchen set and the bathroom and laundry set.
I knew I really wanted to get two inexpensive toilets for a restaurant bathroom. So even for $4.00 per toilet, if I never use anything else in the box, it was a good deal. I'm actually pretty pleased with what I got. I grabbed a few already dressed participants to test out the furniture for size.
Everything is purple in this set, which has to change.
The full kitchen set.
Next, the bathroom & laundry set.
The items out of the box. Not planning on using the washer and dryer for a washer and dryer, but I may have an idea on what to do with them. Yes! It has just come to me as I type. Sorry, you'll have to see later.
The table is supposed to be for folding laundry, but as you can see, it works perfectly with the stools for a bar/counter height table. The tub (which I'll review below) is an okay fit. The toilet (also reviewed below) is really good.
The Barbie tub on the bottom is a little longer (maybe 3/4 of an inch) than the other tub.
The Barbie tub is higher and has the faucet, of course. The shorter tub seems more fit for a sexy scene than for actual functionality. I know you are thinking it too.
The Barbie tub is thinner than the other tub.
Just trying to give another view of how much wider the other tub is.
Jadyn and Marlin jumped in so you can see how they fit in each tub. Jadyn had to (dare I say it?) spread out a little to keep her feet covered by water. Marlin can't spread her arms as far, but she will be fully wet from the bottom of her chest down.
The toilet height allows for a more comfortable seating. It's higher than the Barbie toilet and wider, which means even the muscular guys and the taller guys shouldn't have an issue. Which reminds me, I may need another toilet for the men's room. I guess just urinals will not be enough...I guess.
Top view. The handle can just be painted and Voila! a ready toilet. I do have to warn you, however, that there is no bowl inside. When you open the lid (and it does open) you just see the floor. The best part about the toilet lid is that it won't stay open. No more having to remind the guys about closing it. The ladies are lining up to get one in their houses.
I will say that painting these items is going to require some scrubbing and sanding. These things are so shiny and slick, I think they are glowing. No wonder Chambray and Jadyn kept sliding off those bar stools.
Well, if you're looking to save money on some items and not set on high quality, these are not bad. There is one more set I'm going to see if I can find. It has more pieces, including lamps, televisions and some other general things which are completely worth my purchasing for $4 or $5.
Thanks for stopping by. ~ Jaye
