        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.

            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.

                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.
