    We bought this for Christmas for our then 26 month old twin daughters. They were small for their age, but quickly enjoyed playing with EVER option the house has to offer. We keep ours in the house, since we have the room. Eight months later, the girls STILL play in it everyday, and its a great "catch all" for their other toys. Also, they can mess up THAT house, instead of mine (meaning toys spread around the floor/house/etc). I plan on keeping the playhouse INSIDE for years to come. I am currently pregnant with my second set of twins and feel these little buggers will enjoy it just as much as the girls.
    My husband had no problems putting the house together and said it was pretty easy. He did slide wooden dowels into some of the wall joints to add a little extra "sturdiness" to the house.
    I would totally recommend this house to anyone who has kids. I can see how keeping it SPOTLESSLY CLEAN outside would be difficult, but, hey, its outside. But I've had no problems cleaning spilled milk out of its sink, or dusting it when it needed it. All in all, its a wonderful product, sturdy and my kids LOVE it, and really, thats all that matters!
    Also, as you can see from my picture, the Step 2 "sticker" has fallen off the front of the house. That is the ONLY thing "bad" that has happened to this house, and those kids really play hard in there, as you can see! (Don't worry, every night, we pick up the mess, so they can do it all again the next day!)

    We have had a lot of fun playing with this house..my girls will drive their 4wheelers around it to the big window and pretend they're in a drive thru. I love that it is so big and roomy inside and actually has great height so my kids will not outgrow it for many years to come. I like that it has a kitchen inside, lots of room for storing playfood/dishes under the sink and a good amount of shelves. You can choose to put the table inside up or down. My Girls usually can not use this house in the summer because all the walls and roof pieces have rounded edges where they connect and it creats the perfect nooks for wasp nests, spider nests, pincher bugs, ect. So in the summer the thing is swarming with all sorts of bugs and wasps that come out of the wall and roof cracks when you enter the house. When I ordered this, I read that it can be easily moved for mowing the lawn under it..this is NOT true. My husband, FIL, and I move it carefully and after having it for about 6 months, everytime it is moved the walls come apart and the metal rods don't go back into place right because the plastic is warped! The walls are hollow and have holes on the bottoms so they fill up with rain water and you can see the gross mildew inside through the plastic. There is no drain in the sink and it's a pain to get the dirty water that accumulates in it, out. My duaghter's wanted the sweetheart playhouse because it's so pretty but they were okay with getting this one when they found out how small the other was compared to this. I wish this house came in girly colors because the sweetheart one was just too small. Overall, it isn't worth as much as it costs. We had a lot of fun with this house when we first bought it and it would still be a wonderful house if it were sealed better where the pieces connect, didn't have a problem with water accumulating in the walls and sink, didn't fall apart everytime you try to move it, and it would be great if it had a floor and came in girly colors. The only way I would recommend this to a friend is to warn them to build something to place this on before putting together so it would never have to be moved and getting some sort of spray insulation for between the walls and roof.

        Comments about Step2 Naturally Playful® Welcome Home Playhouse™:

        I was happy with the product but, could not believe the ordeal of scheduling delivery (someone has to be there to sign for package)Scheduled and rescheduled delivery dates 5 different times. 4 of the dates the trucking co. set up were no call/no shows. This delivery tied up several family members time as someone needed to be available for the delivery. Ordered the playhouse on May 21st and finally received it June 5th at 4:30 p.m. That morning rec'd a message on machine from the SAIA trucking co. that stated if I didn't schedule a delivery date I would be charged a storage fee. I thought my head was going to start spinning around like that little girl possessed in the movie The Exorcists.

            My 3 year old grandson loves this house. We haven't had other kids over to play yet, so I can't comment on group play. But he is having fun with his own house and we got him a grill as well, and he can grill just like his dad. We live in the country, on a hill, with lots of wind. So far, the house has stayed put. I would recommend this playhouse to anyone.

              We bought this playhouse about four years ago when my daughter was a baby and my son was about three. I wanted something that they wouldn't grow out of too soon, and this was it! For a kid's playhouse, it is tall and big inside. My 7.5 year old still fits well in it and plays in it regularly. I can get in there with the hose and powerwash everything (they like to make mudpies in the sink) with the hose, no problem (I am about 5'8"). I know the price is so much higher than other toddler playhouses, but this has been a fabulous investment for our family. When we moved to another state, we disassembled it and brought it with us. I highly recommend!

                My 2 year old son loves to play in this house. Everytime he walks in, he rings the doorbell. I haven't put batteries in the play phone yet, but he pretends to makes calls all the time.

                We have the house set up outside. I picked this house because I wanted a large one for him. I am 5'4" and am able to stand almost completely straight up in the middle of the house, so I don't feel he'll out grow it. There is plenty of space for me to sit inside, and he still can move around with ease.

                I stocked the house with some play pots and pans and plates, bowls, and cups. He loves pretending to cook something and serve it at the table. It's got a good amount of storage space in the cabinet below the sink. I keep the 4pots under there along with the cooking utensils. I plan to get some sort of small storage bin to go under there for some play food. On either side of the drop-down table (can be fixed if desired) are 2 small shelves each. They aren't very deep, but his plates, bowls, cups, & pitcher fit on them no problem.

                I didn't want this playhouse to sit on my grass, because I didn't want a big dead spot, nor did I want to have to move it weekly. We have an area of crushed granite, so I didn't want that to be the flooring. I bought some outdoor flooring tiles and placed the house on top in the crushed granite area. It has been working great.

                Step2's customer service was excellent. When you buy this playhouse, toward the end of check-out they warn you it will be shipped by a delivery service and to not refuse delivery. If there is any damage or missing pieces, notify Step2 and they will ship the replacement pieces immediately. You must acknowledge this warning. Unfortunately, I had forgotten and the email confirmation/shipping notification never mentioned it. So I didn't tell my husband not to refuse delivery. The boxes were badly damaged with gaping holes and one of the walls had a hole punctured through it. My husband refused it. When I called customer service, the rep reminded me of this warning. She was very nice though and worked to notify the warehouse that it was coming back without a return number. She also got a replacement shipped out the next day with no extra charges. It arrived the following week. Boxes damaged, but product intact. We got it put together in under an hour.

                I've attached pictures, but for some reason they load a bit stretched out.
