I bought this playhouse for our grandchildren ages 19 months, and five months old. I know my five month old can't use it yet, but she and her mom can sit inside for her to touch and look at it. She loves to grab things.
My grandson likes to play with the faucet, climb on the attached seats, and phone. Right now, I think that he needs to get a little older for it to hold his attention longer. I placed it outside along with his other playground toys. He loves the outside, so staying in one place too long, unless its something he wants to do, doesn't work for him.
The house is a good size, depending on the height of a child. My grandson has plenty of space to stand and walk around in. I plan to put other items in the house for fun time. I also have colored mats for a cushion feel for the floor. My daughter who is 5'2 sat on the seat and floor with her son inside. Of course she can't stand up in it. The phone could ring a little louder and the doorbell volume is perfect. I decided to tape the doorbell on the house, as to remove it after play. This way if it rains, the doorbell or phone won't be ruined during tough weather conditions. The table as some have said is flimsy. For the price, some of the plastic molding could be stronger in some areas.
I keep the house on our patio for extra support. Actually, it was quite easy to put together, and it didn't take my husband and son a long time. As far as fading possibilities, it hasn't been outside long enough to notice any difference. Also make sure if you plan to place it outside, that it can fit through the door. If its put together first without measuring, you'll have to take a part of it off and finish outside. After all and said, this house is really cute. After all the reviews and searching for something affordable, I think I made a good choice.
Not to take from Amazon, but this house is selling for $129.00 at Walmart online if you are planning to buy. I had it shipped to their store and paid around $139.32 for it. No shipping charges to their store. It also came earlier than expected. Make sure to bring a vehicle large enough for the box.
This house takes a beating. We had some serious winds one afternoon about a few weeks ago. It threw this house three separate times across the yard. The only thing I noticed was the door coming off. The house is still intact and ready for play. A good sturdy product.
