My husband and I gave this to our daughter for her FIRST Christmas over 6 years ago. We had intended to move it to the backyard in the spring, but she was just starting to enjoy it, so we kept it in the family room. Six years later, she still uses it daily...in our family room. It has help up remarkably well and still looks brand new. Great product and well worth every penny!

I got this for my 17 month old and my 3 year old niece to put between our backyards. I wasn't aware that there was no floor so it sits right on the grass. It is also smaller than I thought it would be but the kids are young and both fit in it just fine - but definetly made for toddler sized kids. The 'counter and sink' are a bit on the flimsy side. It was a bit of a time consuming assembly and definetly need 2 people for a few of the steops - use a power drill it will be MUCH more efficient. Overall, the kids LOVE it and both run right to it as soon as they go outside, and both kids love the phone. I would have given it a higher rating if there was a floor as many of the less expensive models have a floor. I'm glad we got it new as I have a 6 month old niece and a daughter on the way, this will surely get used for many years to come!

      Comments about Step2 Naturally Playful® Front Porch Playhouse:

      I must say we LOVE this playhouse!! My husband and I bought this in 2007 for our 2-1/2yr old & 9 month old daughters! We STILL have it, and they STILL play with it! They are now 8 & 6yrs old and now have a 2yr old brother! It has been played with by all my nephews & nieces and neighborhood kids and friends! There is not a thing wrong with it and yes, it has always been an outside toy! I would, without a doubt, recommend this product to anyone! You can NOT go wrong! Thank You Step2 for helping make wonderful childhood memories for my children with this product!!!

        this house took a long time to put together.the roof screws together, the first wind storm blew it into pieces and took it across the yard. the shelf inside the house just screws onto the wall. the first thing my two year old did was try to sit on shelf and broke it off wall.After my experience with this toy, i would never buy a step2 product again.

        Does this product have the molded-in floor or is it open to the ground?
        Krista H on Nov 20, 2013
        BEST ANSWER: This house was such a hit for my grands . It is open to the ground. My daughter and the kids made a project of filling up the wheel barrel with bricks and slung a brick floor to avoid the mud. Perfect Solution. They play in it year round.
        I'd buy it again and again.
        how do you drain the water that accumulates in it?
        A shopper on Jul 6, 2013

        The outside dimensions are 49W x 58D. Per Step2 Staff's answer below, the inside dimensions are 42W x 41D without the porch. That doesn't leave much room for the porch. Can anyone tell me the actual inside dimension without the porch? Thank you.
