My friend purchased this toy for her little boy, she bought it directly from the step 2 website. Firstly the box was damaged, there was no packaging to protect the pieces inside, the plastic was scratched and split in places, holes were not drilled so you were unable to attatch the door, the door bell was missing. The plastic was very thin especially on the roof. Overall the quality was awful. She sent it straight back and got a refund. Go for little Tikes their quality is so much better.
Very nice, good quality, well loved house. I bought this for my son when he was 18 months I got it in a sale for £130 it was an excellent buy. My son is now 4 and he still loves it and its still in great condition, I keep it under a tarpaulin to keep it clean and preserve its life. I love the textured floor wood effect for the living room, stone effect for the kitchen it has a sink, a phone, a doorbell and a letter box slot all features my son enjoys. It has shutters on the windows great for playing peekaboo. And because of its open back and front you get plenty of light in there and can see what they're doing. The table and built in seats are big enough for two young children to eat a snack at and my son leaves his drink on the table in there to keep it cool while he plays in the garden in the summer. The only thing there is to complain about is the bits didn't fit together too well while assembling it, some of the holes didn't line up so that was annoying. But now its done its great! Even 3 years on
