Le Cafe - Le PLAY PLAY PLAY!!!
on January 19, 2008
There are seven grandchildren in the family. This was purchased as a Christmas gift for the 3 year old girl, and it was the "hit" present of 2007. All of the kids, from 12 years old to 11 months, love it. Set up was easy after figuring out how to snap together the frame (PVC-pipes, make a house, put tent fabric over, slide awning poles in) and took less than 15 minutes. It's large enough for most of them to play in at the same time, it's tall enough for adults (or a child who thinks he's one!) to stand up in. You can put a toddler bed or mattress in it for the child who needs a restaurant sleepover... nice size! The included aprons are nice, wipe clean, and aren't torn after a month of heavy play. The patio is holding up well, and my baby girl breakfasts there before school, has dinner at her cafe, force-feeds Raggedy Ann pizza, and charges $65 for a cup of coffee. The front door isn't quite straight, but it makes no difference as it "closes" easily and the roll-up window is nice. The back of the structure has a large mesh window, so ventilation is no problem. I do wish there was a side window to peek in from time to time as our mesh back faces the wall. All in all, this is a wonderful product and I hope it lasts for years! I would buy another one if this one bites the dust. Le Cafe? Oui, Oui!
