Our Generation Diner

Our Generation Diner

True confessions of a Dolloholic.  I have been eyeballing this Our Generation Diner for weeks.  In fact, the first day it came out I was strolling in Target with my fingers crossed.  I can literally walk to Target from my house so it wasn’t a long trip for me.  Unfortunately, even though my Target is so convenient, it’s not a Super Target.  From everything I had heard, these Our Generation Diner sets were only being found at Super Targets.  I looked online but it was sold out.  So, I kind of put this wish on the back burner and just watched others who could find it get excited.  And man were others getting excited over it.  After seeing x amount of posts on Facebook about this Our Generation Diner, I decided I HAD to find it.  Instead of driving all around the state, I got on Targets website and looked up my local stores.  One by one I made the phone calls.  I was sure to have them physically LOOK in the toy section because some were just saying, “Oh, it looks like it’s not sold in stores”.  Sure enough, the eighth Target I called had ONE in stock!  EEEK!  And it wasn’t even a Super Target! I begged them to hold it for me and sent my dear hubby on his way.  And, luckily, this Target was pretty close!  If you want to make the calls just be sure to give them the item number which is 086-09-0018.

Update***Right now the Our Generation Diner is available for purchase online!  Go HERE to order and it ships free!

And here is my unveiling.  Click on each picture for a bigger view.  There is extra storage behind the counter to put the food you are not playing with!

My personal opinion, it is worth every penny.  I did a break down of why I think it’s worth the $109 Target is charging. For starters, the diner plays real music.  Very cool.  It also has a neon light under the counter that turns on.  The chalk board is real so you can right daily specials on it.  It has a few details that are neat like the blinds going up and down, the table folds, the dessert display spins around and the food that is included! Check out a few break downs below.

Amazon has these items that are comparable.  As you can tell from the individual prices, the food alone that comes in the Our Generation Diner is worth the $109!

    Maybe fried bologna sandwich? That was a big seller at a diner I worked at!

    I was able to purchase one of these diner’s for my granddaughter and we all just love it! I am trying to figure out, though, what a particular food is….we can’t seem to figure it out? It looks like a sandwich but has a round pinkish thing inside it? Would you happen to know what this is? It’s on a diner plate. We are stumped!
