Step2 Sweetheart Playhouse-A home of their own for kids
A home for their own for kids: Step2 Sweetheart Playhouse
I am sure we all have memories of pretend playing of having a home being a mom or dad and having those little dolls as our children and taking care of them. How we loved to imitate our parents and feel “ BIG ” playing these real-life games with siblings and friends. It never too early to start realising how it feels to own a house and run it too. These early life experiences add elements of life skills learning which we do not realise at that young age. These days’ kids have playhouses which provide an enriching experience to these pretend play games which surely leave and imprint in the minds of little kids.
Here we are reviewing a pretty playhouse by Step2 called the “Sweetheart Playhouse”
What we like about it?
This Step2 product is our on top of our choice for a backyard playhouse. It is a novelty product that will captivate any child. The Sweetheart Playhouse has a spacious size of 58 x 47 x 53 inches (interior space is 55 inches high) and weighs about a 100Kg. It has beautifully finished exterior and interiors.
The walls and roof are no kids play, they are designed with details like a Christmas gingerbread house. There is no floor to this unit which does not affect the design or the functionality of the product in any way. It’s been left out probably to limit the weight of the product so it’s not too difficult to move around and this makes it easy to clean.
The nitty gritties inside are more than enough to give children a feeling of a real home. To begin with we have a door with working bell and a letterbox and windows with shutter that can be closed and opened easily. Other extras include cordless electronic phone, a clock with movable hands, a skylight as well as a flower pot shaped like a heart that can hold real flowers too.
What good is a home without a kitchen? Step2 Sweetheart playhouse has a fully equipped kitchen with a cooking range top that can be flipped over to become a barbeque grill. It has clicking knobs that make it all so real that kids can spend endless hours playing with friends.
The product is both sturdy and durable with no compromises on the design or functionality. It is safe even for a one year old with no sharp corners or small parts. We must not forget to appreciate the designers who have put in a lot of thought to make a beautiful product that is so real and practical for kids.
By the design it looks like the product was designed keeping girls in mind and with the assumption it is girls who enjoy these games more. The pink colours and use of hearts makes this a little obvious. However there is no written rule to stop the boys from enjoying this playhouse. It is suitable for a wide age group starting from 1 year going up to ages 7 or 8.
It is fabricated in safe plastic material and all the joints are of high quality and firmly secured. The high density plastic is sturdy and strong and can withstand the pressure kids can put it through.
If we have to put it in bullet its main advantages would be:
- Sturdy and durable to be passed on to siblings.
- Charming and appealing design with an eye for detail.
- Well accessorised to give the feel of a real home and keep kids occupied for hours.
- Spacious and easy to move around.
- Ideal for indoor or outdoor use.
- Easy to assemble. Takes about 20-30 mins with a couple of people to help.
