Painful to assemble; fun once together March 25 2011
By KristaMV - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
This is a cute little house, and nice especially for the price. There are lots of little features to it that my kids love.

Be very aware, however, that this is one of the more annoying toys to assemble. Let me be clear: it's not that the instructions are bad, or unclear. It's just very labor intensive to put together. How many screws do you think something like this might have? 30? Try 61. There are 7 different types of screw (was it really necessary to have 6 each of screws that are just about 2 mm different in length?) that get screwed into the molded plastic, with no pilot holes.

So, my suggestions for you are: be prepared to set aside a few hours to assemble it. DEFINITELY drill pilot holes, even though it doesn't say so anywhere in the instructions. DEFINITELY use a drill rather than just a screw driver. If you have a bad back, get someone else to put it together because you will spend all of the 2 hours hunched over this, screwing 61 little screws where probably half that would have been just fine.

I didn't give this product 1 star because at least, once it's assembled it's done and then the kids can enjoy it. However, I have never run into such an obnoxious product to assemble.

Great Playhouse May 17 2010
By J. Geoghan - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
This is a great playhouse. My kids planted flowers and enjoy taking care of them. I love that all 3 of them can be playing at the same time w. out being in each other's way. They love being able to take the fence apart. All the neighbor kids like to come play. The only complaint I have, the center height isn't very high. My oldest(4 yr old) is tall so she has to hunch over a little, but she still loves it. My family loves this house. Very easy to put together.

What a pain in the ASSembly. April 7 2012
By Shaun Guth - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
My mother-in-law bought this for our daughter on her 2nd birthday. It's a cute little house, with a fun theme, some planting boxes, a "construction zone" where your kids can hammer some fake nails in, a cordless phone, a sink and stove, a mailbox, etc.

My daughter is thrilled with it, and she loves showing it off to everyone that comes over.

So, why 3 stars?

I have to take 2 stars off for the assembly; one for time spent (>3 hours) and another for how annoying it was.
Read many of the other reviews here for comments along the same lines, but here is my story:

While maybe this is just a lapse in concentration, my mother-in-law and wife tried assembling it while I was gone, and they got stuck at the first step that required the drill because there are no pre-drilled holes for any of the screws. With a drill, the screws eat through the plastic no problem, but it feels like this should have been made more clear in the instructions. To make it worse, quite a few of the areas are not reachable with a moderately-sized power drill (meaning, you need to either have an extension bit, or screw them in by hand, which is painful and takes awhile)

After getting all the bits and pieces put together for the base structure, it was time to get the roof put together. How hard can it be? Set it on top, screw it in, done. Right? Well, the roof is a gigantic piece of molded plastic that you need to physically bend at its edge (the instructions state "use your elbows") in order to get the holes aligned for 4 bolts to go through, so that it will be at the correct pitch. Now, I'm a healthy, physically fit, 29 year old male, and I could barely make the edges meet. This part of the process probably took well over an hour to accomplish. Having a second person helps, but even then, I needed to use two clamps in order to apply enough pressure to thread the bolts through far enough.

Finally, the little picket fences connect to the sides of the house (and the mailbox) by a gravity-fit mechanism, except the holes were only partially cut, and one of them was so badly off-angle that there's no way they would have fit together. I ended up needing to use an exacto knife to cut the plastic to the proper size and angle in order to have them fit together.

My 2 year old grand daughter loves her house. She spends hours using the play hammer to hit the play nails. It is so adorable and will be used for a long time

Cute Little House Sept. 22 2011
By The boys mom - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
I'd like to begin this review with USE A DRILL! The directions state to use a drill and that's what you should use when you're trying to insert screws into molded plastic. With that said the house was not that hard to put together...my dear husband that has never successfully put anything together without it being broken when he's done was able to put this together correctly within an hour. W@W!
The toy is very durable and cute. It's enough stuff to capture my daughter's attention but not too much in which she is not able to use her imagination. Its in our family room now because we are in the process of finishing a play room and its not too overwhelming, but it definetely has alot of room that more than one kid could play. I love that this house is not all foo foo pink but not boyish either. The gate and mailbox is awesome we set up her car and lawn mover "outside" for more added play.
Awesome house Im glad we bought it!
