Our Generation Laundry Set
Have you seen this set before? I’m sure you have. Either you own it (and lucky you if you do) or you have seen it in pictures of dollhouse laundry rooms, youtube videos, or eBay selling as an incomplete set. Well, (and many of you already know this because you yourself already experienced this craziness) a few weeks ago the Our Generation Laundry Set randomly popped up on the Target website as in stock! And for those of you in an area that cannot order from Target.com it was on the Target eBay store for sale. I was so excited! It was my chance to finally add it to our collection since I should have done it long ago. Of course I jumped on the deal right away and ordered one for us. When it arrived the kids and I had just had a long day out so it sat unopened until later. The next day, I woke up and the kids were begging me to open it. I had plans for it, we cleared a room in a dollhouse that would be dedicated for a laundry room and I worked on some printables. Laundry room artwork if you will. I knew several other people had ordered this set so I thought it would be fun to create some printables that everyone could enjoy with their new big item! I got my youngest one ready for a picture because she wanted to present it! And…….
This is what we opened! I can laugh about it now, but I was not laughing that day! I made a round of calls still hoping there was a way to get the Our Generation Laundry Set and I went through a lot of people that all seemed to have different stories! I was told I would be put on the email/phone list which meant as soon as the item was back in stock I would be notified. I was told Target would have it again in 4-6 weeks. My friend was told there was no such thing. See, it is kind of funny now. Then, this morning I get the following email from OG Dolls:
We are sorry to hear that you are having difficulty finding the laundry set. The pink laundry set is no longer available, but a new set in a different color is presently in production and will be available later in the year.
When I read this I had excitement run through me, but at the same time I’m not holding my breath! I hope it’s not another run around to get rid of me, the annoying doll enthusiast here. I mean after all, WE are practically begging for an item from them! Actually I have a long list of items I’ve been begging for that Our Generation has made. Don’t they get it?! Have more items in stock already! Sell ALL OF THEM online already! Give us what we want! OG can make a doll lover crazy you know! All I have to say is that they better release it before American Girl does.

What do you think will come with the new laundry set that’s in production? What color is it going to be? How much will it cost? Will it be the right size? I always worry when a new OG item comes out that the scale will be off. Let’s face it, they aren’t exactly known for the perfect doll size items.
P.S. The kids still enjoyed the Gourmet Kitchen. We didn’t need another kitchen, but with all the excitement we had that morning before the disappointment, I couldn’t not let them play and enjoy the doll day!
