Oh my word, this is an awesome toy. Put aside the fact that you are buying a box and concentrate on the fact that this could keep your children busy for hours upon hours upon hours. My children have spent copious amounts of time:
- coloring the house (inside and out)
- putting stickers on the house
- playing house inside the house
- playing mailman with the open-and-close mailboxes

Another great feature is the windows and doors. Two doors! This is very good when you have two kids, because someone is always blocking one of the doors, but there is another way to exit.

Our house has seen quite a lot of abuse over the past few months, but it's still standing. I think for twenty dollars that we paid for it, it was an excellent value in the amount of time the children have already spent on it. Once you put aside that you're paying for a box -- a box you have to assemble -- and a box that comes within a box within a box.

We bought this playhouse for our 3 & 5 year olds for Christmas. They have been playing in it and coloring it almost everyday since then. It's large enough to fit an adult inside with the kids. They still have not finished coloring the entire house...there are so many different areas! I recommend it if you have children that love to color, paint, etc. It' fun for the whole family.

I got this very quickly which was good. The kids love playing inside the house and coloring the outside. The 'house' ships with just black and white on the outside. I put some extra duct tape on the joints and it seems to be wearing pretty well after about a month. Not sure how long it will last but certainly worth the money I put into it. Would recommend for kids up to about 10 years old but probably not much older.

This is a great play house for the price. It is even larger than I expected. My 3-year-old and 10-year-old fit inside comfortably and I can fit in it too! Granted I am only 5'2" but I do not have any trouble getting through the door and sitting inside to play with the kids. They like to put blankets and pillows in there too and have created quite the set up. It was a little more difficult to set up then I imagined, the roof being the trickiest, but with a little perseverance we got it up in about 20 minutes. Once you put the chimney on, the roof stays securely in place without any trouble. Now that we have figured it out I know it will much easier/faster in the future but it is best to have an extra set of hands to help b/c of the size. However, I did manage to get it up myself with a little help from the kids. Also, I thought it would be more convenient to store away, which is really not too much trouble, but you have to disassemble the house back into two pieces and then start all over. I recommend setting it up where you intend to keep it long term instead of trying it out in the living room "just for now" as I did at first. I don't imagine it holding up very well over time if it continuously needs to be stored away after each use as it uses tabs and slots to hold it together. Overall it is pretty sturdy. Keep in mind this is a cardboard house! If you have the space to keep it out, I would recommend using clear packing tape to secure the tabs and doorways for added stability. If not, you might want to choose a smaller house that is meant to be stored away frequently. My kids love this house and when others come to play their eyes light up and it's the first thing they want to play with. They bring in all their pretend kitchen toys and baby dolls and are content for hours.Read more ›

We went through a lot to get this play house for our 4 year old for Christmas. It was worth it! The play house is easy to assemble and we've had a great time colouring it. My son prefers to "paint" the inside walls while the rest of us work on the outside. I highly recommend it. Just remember that it is made of cardboard and therefore you can't do much "rough housing" but our 4 year old is pretty active and we've had no trouble with him flying through the front door and out the back (but we've reinforced the "door sills" with tape)! I think it is well suited for kids in the 2-5 year age range. Don't forget the markers!

Best entertainment ever!! I purchased this to entertain the kids at an elderly woman's birthday party. The kids all loved it and they stayed away from tripping up their elders!! Hours of great entertainment! I just ordered another one for my granddaughter!

I bought this and had it sent to Grandma's in advance of our two-week trip with our 3- and 5-year-old boys. One rainy day we brought it out and set it up in the garage (but it could just as easily be set up inside the house if you have space for it). The boys had a blast with it over the next several days. They colored it, they moved in furniture, they produced a rug, they made mail to put in the mail slots, they colored it some more. Because there are two distinct sides, two mail slots, two windows, two doors, each boy had his own side of the house and there was no arguing (really!) about how to decorate, who would get to use the window, the mail slot, the door, etc. Even better, it was sturdy enough to withstand two energetic boys. And it stimulated their creativity and imagination.

I see that it now costs almost twice what I paid for it. I would not buy it at the current price. I was reluctant to buy it at 25 dollars -- after all it's really just a glorified cardboard box -- but after we saw how entertaining it was for them, it seemed worth it. At the same time, my kids are also happy playing for hours with a giant chunk of amorphous cardboard, so if you have a big cardboard box at your disposal, turn it over to your wild ones and let their imagination run wild and pocket the money you would have spent for this. I would buy it again for Grandma's if the price is right and if Grandma doesn't have some spare cardboard boxes lying around.

So 5 stars for the idea, but 4 stars for the price for a chunk of cardboard.
