Initial thoughts: When we started looking into purchasing a playhouse for the garden for the boys, we came across Step 2 Playhouses. We were looking for something to provide our children with a place to play in the garden and keep them contained in one place. It was a totally selfish purchase – having a playhouse meant peace in the garden for us!

The reason we chose the Naturally Playful Storybook Cottage Playhouse was because it looked so pretty and it had a fire place, a phone, a secret passage, a kitchen and an outside table and chairs. It was the house we would have loved to have when we were growing up.

We liked: The size and robustness of it. It is very sturdy and has higher ceiling than most other playhouses on the market, so the boys will be able to play in it longer. We love the details inside the house. The boys spend hours cooking and escaping through the secret passage (which can have its downside when you try to go and get them to come back in – they escape to the back of the house driving me slightly mad…). Even on a rainy day the house stays dry so they can still play in it (or be grounded in it!).

We are not so keen: The price! The Naturally Playful Storybook Cottage Playhouse is an expensive house. A really, really expensive house. We collected money for their birthdays to buy it, but we would have probably reconsidered if we hadn’t had a generous family to help contribute towards the cost.

Overall: The Naturally Playful Storybook Cottage Playhouse is a dream playhouse for any child, full of fantastic features and sturdy and big enough to last a long time. However, you might need to smile sweetly at the Grandparents to afford the hefty price tag!
