This review is from: Step2 Naturally Playful Front Porch Playhouse (Toy)
This is a really nice playhouse, but it is quite small. The front porch has a little yellow bench and a doorbell (very cute). Inside there is a small shelf under the left window and a small sink and stove under the right window. There are closeable shutters on the right window, but no shutters on the front, left or rear windows. The door is only a half door on the bottom. There is a skylight and an electric phone on the inside.

My daughter is a normal sized 3 year old and she and a friend can play on the inside without much room to move around.

There is no floor, so I constructed a floor out of some pressure treated 4x4 beams (laid out as joysts) with some sheathing laid over the top. This created a nice flat, level platform. I then used some screws to toe nail the four corners of the house to the platform. It worked out well. It would survive a hurricane.

Construction of the playhouse is very easy. It took much less than an hour - maybe 35 minutes or so. A second set of hands is useful - but not necessary - to get the roof in place. The only necessary tool is a phillips screwdriver, but I would recommend a power driver.

There is a sheet of decals, but they looked a bit tacky and we didn't put them on. They look like they would fall off anyway.

I really wish the inside were a bit bigger. The kids in the photo are deceivingly small. There should be shutters on all of the windows and the dutch door should have a top.

Delivery (through a freight company) was very easy - they called to make a drop off appointment and actually were willing to deliver the 80 lb box to a spot we designated in the backyard.
