We might have said it before, but we will say it again: kids love to have a little place of their own where they can hide away and let their role play imagination run wild.
The new playhouse from Little Tikes, the contemporary-style Cape Cottage, allows them to do just that. From the realistic brick detail and working arched doorway to the delightful, working modern window shutters and letterbox, this compact little house offers everything kids need to have hour after hour of inspired role play fun.
Suitable for children aged two to five, the Cape Cottage will require some assembly, so we recommend packing the kids off to bed early on Christmas Eve so you can put their little hide-away home up in peace. It should not be a problem, though, as the included assembly instruction are very clear and easy to follow. My daughter Nancy is just over 2 years old and adores her Cape Cottage. The below short video shows her reaction when she first seen it –
Fully assembled, Cape Cottage will weigh 13.5 kg; stand 124 cm high and be 109 cm wide, with a depth of 89 cm, so if you want to move this wonderful little cottage into another room or outside (please note that Cape Cottage should be taken indoors when temperatures are likely to drop below 0°F/-18°C), you may need to make sure it will fit through your doors.
Named the ‘Best Activity Toy 3-6 Years+ 2015’ by LBP (LovedByParents.com), Caper Cottage is available in a choice of three different colours (pink, red and tan) from Little Tikes and is priced at £99.99.
Considering the hours of entertainment your children will get out of (or should that be in?) Cape Cottage and the fact that this fantastic little playhouse could, with a little care and regular maintenance (hardware parts should be checked and, if necessary, tightened twice a month) last for several generations, this price is definitely worth paying.
