    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™:

      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.

          We bought this house for our granddaughter. She loved it! She is two. She calls it her birthday house. However, it came with no assembly instructions. I guess somehow they were not packed in the box?? So it took us a while to get it together. I had to find the picture on the internet website and try and put it together.

          Comments about Step2 Naturally Playful® Countryside Cottage™:

          I was so excited to get a play house for my son because everytime we visited someone with one he played in it for hours. We got it for him for his second birthday. That was 4 months ago and he has played in the house a total of three times. Though the description makes it seem like there is so much to do in it, there is really very little. The phone breaks easily, the sink and stove are boring after a minute, the stickers fall off in the rain, and the flower pot holder fills with water and gets slimey and dirty and it hard to clean. The best part is the doorbell, and for the money I can think of many better toys to buy than a doorbell. I have put toys in the house and a chair, but there is nothing I can do to lure my son into it. A big disappointment.

          Jenny P: 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 :) Sep 16, 2013

          Jennifer L: 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. Apr 5, 2013

          Anne Marie M: Thanks very much! We plan to put it on our deck and I'm concerned with splinters so we may go with a different one. Apr 6, 2013

          Chris asked: 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. Apr 10, 2014

          Step2Staff: 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. If you have additional questions about this process please call toll free 1-800-347-8372 Monday - Friday, from 8-5 ET and we will be happy to assist you. Apr 14, 2014

          Chris: Thanks for the reply. This was a lot of money so why do I have to modify it? It is really not possible to drill a hole in the lowest point without taking it apart. I am not sure a phone call to Customer Service will help. Apr 14, 2014
          Sarah S: Abraham Lincoln once said, "Let the buyer beware." Yes, you will attract misquotes with standing water. So why not just add dirt to the planter? If you put it outside anyway, I would add dirt or sand and flowers. Then it really is a planter and not just a bucket. Apr 11, 2014
