I think the people a couple reviews down are confusing this playouse with something else.

I gave this very same playhouse to my niece, Amanda, 2 years ago (she was 3) and she still plays with it! Am buying another one to keep at my house for when she comes over.

It has held up through tons of sleepovers, "tea parties" and decorating. It's still one of her favorite toys.

MyVeryOwnHouse is NOT the same playhouse sold at WalMart or Target! MyVeryOwnHouse (MVOH) is MADE in USA; others are made in CHINA. MVOH is single piece construction with FACTORY GLUED CORNERS, verses six separate panels and 17 tabs. MVOH is almost double the size! 14 square foot of floor space verses 7.65. Big enough for 1 adult and three children to comfortably play/ color inside! Heavier gauge cardboard, more coloring area and NO SHARP TABS or ROOF OVERHANG, (which stick out right at a child's face height). MVOH includes 8 JUMBO markers, verses 5. MVOH has been tested and certified as a safe toy for children as per the ASTM (US), CHPA (Canada) and CE (European Union) regulations. MVOH is 97% pre-assembled, simply expand it like an accordion, flip up the ATTACHED roof halves for play or do the reverse to fold flat for storage (and the directions are printed on the playhouse with pictures so they never get lost!) MyVeryOwnHouse is the Best! A High Quality cardboard playhouse at an exceptionally great value!!!

First, the not so great:

LOL - okay, so I read in some of the reviews that this thing is big, but I thought, "It couldn't be that big."

Um...I was wrong. This house is huge! First and foremost, make sure you've got room for it. My daughter is a tall 2-year-old. It could fit six 2-year-olds with room leftover. It takes up a ton of space. And, since it's cardboard, it's not feasable to keep it outside.

In addition, like some of the other reviewers, I did need to use some packing tape on the roof to keep it closed and stable. Since I had to do that, the fact that you can collapse and store it becomes a moot point. I'd have to remove all the packing tape each time.

The markers that come with the box dry out really quick.

Finally, the shipping seems expensive until you note the size and the weight of the box.

Now, the great things about it:

The quality of the house is amazing. This is durable, cute and my daughter loves it. It seems like it will stand up to a lot of play.

The illustrations are adorable and begging to be colored. When my daughter realized she could color her house, her face lit up.

It's easy to put together. If you can put together a gift box, you can do this. It took me about 5 minutes flat to put it together and that was with my daughter insisting on helping!

All in all, a really nice play house. Just make sure you've got the room for it!

Keeps them busy for hours!

Kids love it because they can take their sleeping bags, stuffed animals, small tables & chairs, toys and favorite adult inside.

It sets up in minutes (and I mean 5 minutes, not 95 minutes!).

DON'T CONFUSE THIS WITH THE OTHERS! It's nothing like the cheapo ones that are dangerous (lots of sharp corners and tabs that stick out), really small, assembly is a nightmare.

Plus selfishly, it's fun being the one that gives the "FAVORITE" gift. :)

As a parent, the thing I like most about this house is the ease of assembly and disassembly, and the small amount of space that it takes up when it is folded down. A frequent problem with large toys like this is that they are great fun at first, but eventually the child loses interest and you then have a lot of floorspace devoted to something that is not being played with. My 5 year old daughter got this house for Christmas and loved it, but sure enough after a week she was not quite so excited with it. I found it very easy to fold it down and put it away, and it occupies very little space when folded. (I measured the dimensions when folded to be 35 inches by 20 inches by 4 inches). Now that we have been having 1 or 2 snow days every week, I have been bringing the house back out for snow days and then putting it away again. Of course when the house has been away for a few days my daughter gets excited with it when I bring it out again and it has been very helpful in occupying those interminable snow days.

A playhouse is always fun for children, but the really nice thing about this one is that it is meant to be colored and drawn on. Both my 5 year old and 10 year old daughters enjoy using the supplied markers (as well as crayons) to decorate the house (inside and outside). And there is so much space to decorate that they will probably never be finished. They also enjoy decorating the inside by taping up pictures that they have created themselves or printed out (my 10-year old wanted a fireplace so she found a picture of one on the internet, printed it out and taped it to the inside of the house).

I feel a little guilty about subtracting one star for durability, as this house is cardboard, after all.
