DIY American Girl Knockoff Gymnastics Set

The only thing my 5 year old told Santa she wants is a $200+ American Girl gymnastics set. Instead, I made her a gymnastics bar and beam from PVC pipe and dowels in my own workshop and it cost me less than $30! For the full tutorial check out Two It Yourself. http://www.twoityourself.com/2013/12/diy-ame...

    I can't believe anyone with a conscience would spent that kind of money on a toy for a doll! What kind of values are we teaching our children and grandchildren?

    Just made this for my niece. A 3/4 inch dowel does not fit on a 1/2 in pipe though. We skipped that step. She loves it!
