    It's a good quality product. We keep it outside on our patio. We purchased this for our 2 yrs old son and he loves it. The only con would be it's not that big inside the cottage. It would only be comfortable for 2 toddlers at a time. Overall I was impressed.

    My daughter received this house for being a good little girl as she has always wanted one. I did alot of research and since I am a big fan of Step 2 products, we decided on this one. Also, because this is only 1 of 2 houses that are sold in stores from Step 2. Within 1 hour (husband did not even finish building it yet) the phone did not work. THe house has not been built for 24 hours and I went outside to let her play today and the doorbell did not work. If it wasn't such a pain to get this home I would return it. THe roof on top does not meet up properly either. I love the house but for being something for small children and suppose to be durable, too many things are going wrong. I put at the bottom wouldn't recommend, but I am borderline. THe phone and doorbell are the best parts to her and now they don't work.

      Comments about Step2 Naturally Playful® Countryside Cottage™:

      Our daughter received this adorable cottage from her Mimi & Pawpaw about 2 years ago. When we got it we lived in a 2 bedroom apartment and so we actually set it up in our living room! It was very easy to put together and one of my daughter's favorite features is the flower box in the front. She also loves the fire place and sink. My husband and I loved that there were 3 windows and that the door was a "farm-style" door so we could see her at all times. She was about a year old when she first got the house and now she's turning 3. She plays with it everyday and has even camped out in it. haha! She plays everything from "Bake Shop" to "princess castle" in this cottage and it may just be her favorite toy of all time. She has at least 3 more years if not more to enjoy it. We have moved since then but we are still in an apartment just a larger size. It is set up in her room and she couldn't be happier about that!

        Comments about Step2 Naturally Playful® Countryside Cottage™:

        It is a really nice size, since I have 5 grandchildren under the age of 4 who will be spending time playing in it. It was a Christmas present but they cannot wait to plant flowers in the lovely planter on the outside of the house. Love that it is so easy to see the children inside from any angle. It has a good height so the kids will be using it for a few years. Of course the working doorbell is a big hit. It has a really nice sound but once installed it is much quieter and could be louder.

            Comments about Step2 Naturally Playful® Countryside Cottage™:

            We got this for my foster child and it was a huge hit. Unfortunately, I never got around to cleaning it up and making it usable for my own son until just this year. He's now 4 so it sat unused for over 4 years. I was afraid he'd be too big for it but he fits and moves around in it perfectly fine. Shocked that the doorbell still worked after all these years outside in the snow and rain. The phone got run over by the lawnmower long ago - too bad because it was a fun addition. We have the original version with the water fountain (instead of the flower pot) and somehow that still works too. No need for a water table. He just splashes around in that thing all day. Love, love, love it.

              What are the current colors on this product? I have seen the brown roof or the blue roof. I have the Woodland Climber with the blue slide and orange steps and them to match.
              A shopper on Jul 7, 2013
              BEST ANSWER: Our is exactly as shown int he picture. The roof is brown, the door is blue, the flower pot is red and the lion above the flower pot is brown. The cottage itself is a neutral tan color.
              My daughter is 48'' tall and 6 years old...I was wondering if she would be the perfect fit for this playhouse?
              internet on Sep 13, 2013
              BEST ANSWER: I would say 4 ft would be the max. So no growing room. She can easily stand up inside it but would have to bend down to get through door. My son who is 4'3" still gets in there with his little sister but its a tight fit. But it is the perfect fit for my 3 ft daughter :)
              does this product have a plastic floor as well or does the surface you put it on become the floor?
              Anne Marie M on Apr 4, 2013
              BEST ANSWER: it does not have a plastic floor. So whatever surface you put it on becomes the floor. That was one of the reasons we bought it, so we could move it and it wouldn't kill our grass if it stayed in one spot. My 2 year old loves it. Although I will say the stickers don't stick very well. Everything else is great.
              Are the outside dimensions for the footprint of the walls of the cottage, or do they include the flowerpot that extends out past the walls? How much actual floorspace will be take up with this house?
              A shopper on May 24, 2013
              BEST ANSWER: The floorspace taken up by this playhouse is 45" x 38 1/2"
              What are the interior dimensions of the cottage? I am trying to determine the amount of useable space inside to compare it to other playhouses. Thank you.
              A shopper on Apr 20, 2013
              BEST ANSWER: This playhouse measures 45" x 38 1/2" at the ground level.
              We purchased this house. Why does the Planter not have a drain hole? This is a poor design! If we forget to empty the water, it will attract misquotes that have West Nile. Step2 you can do better then this.
              Chris on Apr 10, 2014
              BEST ANSWER: If your product is accumulating water, you can drill a ¼ hole on bottom away from any seam line, tip it and this should drain out the water.
