      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.

        Comments about Step2 Neat & Tidy Cottage II™:

        As a Step2 Ambassador, our family was sent this house (at no cost) to review. My kids' grandparents have been wanting a playhouse at their home for a while and were so excited to put this up in their backyard.

        The setup was really easy and can be done with just one person if needed.

        My kids couldn't wait to play with this house! They visit their grandparents' house once or twice a week and play with it every time they are there. They especially enjoy playing with the grill and sink. My son also likes to play peek-a-boo with the shutters. The working doorbell is a fun feature and it's not overly loud or annoying the way some electronic toys can be.

        My in-laws appreciate that the color scheme looks good outside their home and it's also nice that it is gender neutral. They also have the Step2 Alpine Ridge Climber and the two color schemes look well together.

        I love that this house has a built in floor. If you decide to put the house outside (like we did), there are small drain holes for water/snow. Having the floor means that after a week of raining days, my kids can still play in the house on the first sunny day without becoming a big muddy mess.

        Overall, it's a wonderful little house that's great for boys and girls alike.

          Comments about Step2 Neat & Tidy Cottage II™:

          With the help of The Step2 Company, we were able to donate a playhouse to our 4 year old's school. Logan was able to go with us to drop the Neat & Tidy II playhouse off at his school and he was able to test it out. The playhouse has a working doorbell that was a big hit with Logan. It also has a swinging door, small play grill, little sink/counter, a spot for a flower bed, mail slot and working shutters. Awesome for pretend play! My 4 year old is off the charts in height (he's as tall as most 1st graders) and he still easily fit underneath the house, so it's definitely a toy that will grow with your kiddo and can be used by multiple siblings. I love the size of this house because it doesn't take up a ton of space and can be put inside a playroom or classroom if you'd like. Several children can also enjoy it at the same time.

            Comments about Step2 Neat & Tidy Cottage II™:

            As a sponsored Step2 Ambassador, I was sent this cottage at no cost to facilitate a review. Assembly was very easy and we had it put together within 30 minutes. The directions were clear and easy to follow. I love the color palette and that the cottage is gender neutral. It's got great features, like the functioning shutters and doorbell, that keep my toddler very busy. I think he really likes to have his very own play space. The Neat & Tidy Cottage II is really easy to wipe down and can be used indoors or outside. Overall, we're very pleased with the cottage and I would absolutely recommend it.

              Comments about Step2 Neat & Tidy Cottage II™:

              Thanks to Step2 for sending me this playhouse to check out as part of the Step2 Amabassador program! It has been played with by a 2 year old and a 5 year old and they are both enjoying it side by side.

              I love the new features of the grill and the flower box along with the classic doorbell that every 2 year old desperately wants to play with. Having a flor on the bottom of this house means you can put it almost anywhere without worry that your young child is hiding in there digging up things from the yard and eating them.

              For a first playhouse I think the scale on this model is perfect. It is very open so an adult can interact from outside the playhouse without being forced to try to cram themselves inside to participate in the fun. At 5 years old my daughter is on the tall side to be in the actual house but that doesn't seem to bother her in playing with her 2 year old companion.

              The house goes together pretty quickly and I didn't find any moments where I was left wondering what the instructions were saying. Working with one other person we had the house together in less than 20 minutes.

              I would mention that this house does not come with any play food or utensils and since it has the little grill/kitchen area you might want to consider adding a small set of those kinds of things so your child can get the most out of them. Other than that, I think they thought of just about everything!
