    Comments about Step2 Neat & Tidy Cottage II™:

    My mother bought this for my children (ages 2.5 and 1.5) in May. We set it up on Memorial Day and it was super easy to put together. My kids throughly enjoyed playing in it and the box it came in (even though the doorbell doesn't work). We immediately called the company and they sent us a door. Upon receiving the door another phone call wa made and they sent the doorbell (correct broke piece). That doorbell doesn't work either. I then called the company again and explained everything to them again (which they already had on file because the woman I was speaking to told me about the wrong part being sent originally and I hadn't mentioned it yet. Today, I got what is now the THIRD doorbell and this one doesn't work either! Seriously?! I am beyond frustrated! I know it's not my batteries because I have tried two different brands.

      Comments about Step2 Neat & Tidy Cottage II™:

      I bought this for my three grandsons. 3,2 and 1 year. They loved it. I found only one problem, so far, Between the door hinge and the mailbox overhang, there is a very small gap close to hinge, where little fingers can and did get pinched much to the surprise of the 1yr old. The 2yr also got his fingers pinched. The overhang on the mailbox was really poor planning. The kids were having a good time with it regardless. I guess they will have to learn where to place their fingers or stock up on bandaids.

        Comments about Step2 Neat & Tidy Cottage II™:

        My granddaughter immediately fell in love with this cottage. It was fairly easy to put together with a stable frame. I would say the roof of it wasn't as sturdy as the rest but once put together it was fine. She enjoys the doorbell, sometimes a bit too much! The sink she hasn't had a whole lot of use out of yet but she is only 16 months, so she doesn't quite know what to do with it. I am sure she will. The shutters in one window is a nice touch my grandchildren play peekaboo with them all the time. I would recommend this to parents who want their children's imagination to grow.

            Comments about Step2 Neat & Tidy Cottage II™:

            This is the first "big" present we got our one year old son for Christmas. I was putting it together a few days ahead of time so Santa could bring it to our little man. Low and behold, there was no door.

            We contacted the store we got it from and they would check to see if we could get a door. We may have to send it back, if not, and buy a new one.

            Now my son either gets no big gift or a partially built gift. Looks like we will have a blue Christmas without the door.

              Comments about Step2 Neat & Tidy Cottage II™:

              As a Step2 ambassador, I was provided this adorable outdoor playhouse for review. We loved the Neat & Tidy Cottage II for a few reasons, including the built-in floor, real life doorbell and swinging door, as well as tasteful color palette and design. My kids love having working shutters too, as it makes them feel secluded in their own little house and is perfect for independent play. Setup was a breeze and could be done with one person if needed. Our playhouse has been outside for a month in the hot Vegas sun and is not showing signs of any weather decay at all.
