"The Pioneer Woman," Ree Drummond, wants you to cook up some fun — not just in your actual kitchen, but with her new Barbie kitchen play set too.
Drummond’s The Pioneer Woman Barbie kitchen play set comes complete with a neon-hued kitchen, cooking tools and a Barbie doll that looks just like her too. (Well, not exactly, but close enough — it has the red hair, after all.)
"My set has a great kitchen and all the cooking accessories I love except they’re teeny-tiny. I hope you love it," Drummond said in the promo video.
The kitchen set is now available and sold exclusively at Walmart for $44.88, but before it hit shelves, the Barbie doll was sent back for a few changes.
According to an interview with Delish, Drummond wasn’t a fan of the Barbie’s original wardrobe, which was initially a pair of sneakers and a T-shirt. “I immediately said, ‘You know, I wear sneakers maybe if I work out, and who knows when that’s going to be?’” Drummond said.
Now, the Barbie is appropriately dressed, sporting jeans, boots and a loose-fitting floral-printed blouse.

The kitchen play set has everything kids will need to whip up tasty dishes, including more than 30 accessories. It even comes with a toaster that actually pops up toast and a mixer that spins with the push of a button.
The on-trend teal fridge has working double doors, pullout shelves and a lower freezer drawer. And the kitchen piece has everything you’d typically find in a kitchen: the sink, stove, an oven with a working door, countertops, an overhead microwave decal and two cabinets with working doors. The set also comes with grocery items and completed dishes.
Drummond was very hands-on with this set, tweaking every item and detail for over a year and a half. She even has a favorite item: the cast-iron skillet.
"The cast-iron skillet makes me smile, because you have this bright, colorful kitchen and a black skillet," she told Delish. "Everything may change, but a cast-iron skillet will never change."
But, wait. There’s more.
For $9.97, you can add on the pasta accessory set, which comes with noodles, utensils, a tiny adorable apron, an oven mitt, dishware and more.

Or choose the barbecue accessory set, which comes with the cutest basset hound-embroidered apron we’ve ever seen. The basset hound pictured is Charlie, Drummond’s dog, who died last year.

“I hope [the play set] makes people smile, whether they give it as a gift to their daughter or granddaughter or if kids see it,” she said. “I hope it inspires fun.”
