My 3 yr old and 1 yr old love this playhouse. My husband managed to put it together himself in a few hours. He said it was straightforward. Instructions were good. Feels solid when put together. Doors and shutters swing open and close very nicely. My toddler loves the cooker and sits on the little table to eat it!
I ordered this on behalf of my in-laws for my niece's 5th birthday, she loves it...apparently it's the best gift that she received : ) Very sturdy when made, I think it took a while to assemble it but it was worth it for her reaction.
Now entering my third summer with the playhouse. Aside from slight panel fading, its as good as the day I bought it.
I am 6ft+ and (with a little wiggling) I can squeeze in for tea parties. The plastic is solid and assembly is quite simple. All you need is a £2 coin to fasten the holding nuts on the panels (if youre a little on the short side, a second set of hands may be useful). I disassemble mine every winter to prevent frost damage and can say there is no problem with reassembling.
My only criticism is the lack of interior detail. Aside from the sink, tap and grill, there are no details or features to entertain kids. However, it is big enough to furnish. I'd strongly recommend that parents invest in a set of play mats to prevent scraped knees.
Excellent product which is used daily during the summer months and would buy again.
