remember these? my grandma had one but it had a huge center "basket". you could just toss all the clothes from the dryer in it and sit in a chair folding! loved that thing. no reaching down to the basket on the ground. and it folded up and slipped between the washer/dryer.

The petite willow laundry basket is sized just right for dollies' clean folded clothes.
