    This was the first major, outdoor purchase I made for my daycare. I chose this one because I don't have a lot of experience with Step2 and I wanted to make sure I was satisfied with the quality of their products before I made a big investment. The kids love it and so do I. It is the perfect size for 2 toddlers, 3 if they don't mind being a little crowded. I put it together myself in under 45 minutes. The only issue I had was that the screw that holds the sink/table on didn't quite line up with the hole and eventually fell off. We popped it back in and it sags a little but the kids couldn't care less. I just bought the Naturally Playful picnic table and intend to purchase another, bigger playhouse as well as a climbing structure in the next few months. I would absolutely buy this again and recommend it to anyone looking for a smaller playhouse.

    bought this for my granddaughter who is a year and half old. The set is cute the only problem i have with this is. the seats in the house are so small her poor little hinnie cant fit. and the table is flimsy and attached to the seat. I would of perferd it to be on the other side of the house. And the door bell could be louder.

    Comments about Step2 Neat & Tidy Cottage™:

    This playhouse was purchased for a toddler class and I think they will enjoy it. It's probably only going to hold 2-3 at a time and if I have time I will probably take out the "sink" to aid the space issue inside.
    Assembling bookcases, desks and toys is part of my responsibility and experience, so finding these plastic pieces with 1.25" screws and no other securing mechanisms was surprising, but more frustrating was the discovery of no predrilled holes and in 4-5 places no indication for screws. Yes, I assembled it with a manual screwdriver but it was unnecessarily frustrating and in a few cases the screws didn't even catch the adjoining part to secure them together. I had a higher opinion of Step 2 before my experience with the cottage.

        We purchased this used from a friend. Her daughter had played with it and enjoyed it for many years before it was passed along to us. My son loves it. The phone was missing and the stickers are a bit faded, but the house has otherwise held up in very good condition. I called and ordered new stickers and a new phone today and both were VERY reasonably priced. Great company!

          Ordered the pink version of this online. When I received it, the box was busted open, but it appeared that all the pieces were intact until I started to put it together and there were no screws included. Customers service is closed on the weekend,so I had to go to the store and buy some that were as close in size as what should have been included. Once I went to insert the first screw, I realized that there was no hole for it...or any of them. Directions call for screws and a screwdriver. A screwdriver wont bust through the plastic. Looks like return is inevitable.

              This was bought for my son's second birthday. He absolutely loves it. I love seeing him be creative and use his imagination with the door bell, sink and phone inside.
