Compared to all other houses, the design is very nice: big enough for a toddler. At the sametime not too big so that we could put it inside during the winter for our girl to enjoy it all the year.
Big openings (windows) all around = best thing. It lets you keep an eye on your child all the time, and play with him through the windows.
Other advantage : it has a floor so that it stays cleaner and safer (no insects, small animal...).
Colors really more beautiful compared to all the other houses that are brown / dark red (sad colors!).
Concerning durability and weather resistance, no opinion. We haven't got it enough time to judge.

I'm sure this will be a big hit -- it's bright and colorful and matches its description. We bought it a month ago but still haven't finished assembling it for several reasons. A few things that were disappointing on arrival: Box was DESTROYED -- but the shipping label was on top of the tape that fixed the box (so it seemed the box was broken before even leaving the warehouse). The stickers, screws and complete instructions were missing from the box (not surprising there were huge gaping holes in the box). Step2 was great about sending replacement parts (took about 10days to get them). Additionally it was covered in a thin film of plastic dust (like what would be generated if they used an electric sander to take the rough edges off). It had to be wiped down before the kids used it (my hands were covered just taking the pieces out of the box). In the end I think there are better playhouses out there but it is exactly as advertised.

      This product is fun for girls and boys. My grandchildren have spent hours of imaginative play in the "princess castle" or "The Fort".

        I bought this for my livingroom (during winter)and will move it to the backyard in spring. It is everything I hoped for. My great niece (13 mos.) took right to it. The assembly was easy. I put it together myself. No holes for the screws, but there are depressions that show you where to insert. Delivery was earlier than I expected. Beautiful bright, happy colors.

        It has a floor and the play area outside has woodchips that make it more difficult for the little ones to play

        Why does Neat & Tidy Active brights have 2 seats and the other colors have one seat?
        LisaW on Nov 16, 2014
        BEST ANSWER: The Neat & Tidy Cottage (http://www.step2.com/p/Neat-Tidy-Cottage) comes with 2 molded-in seats. The Neat & Tidy Cottage II only comes with 1 molded-in seat.
        What is the difference between the neat and tidy cottage and the neat and tidy cottage active brights?
        Miriam on Apr 6, 2014
        BEST ANSWER: The only difference between these models is the color.
