The children will adore this gorgeous country cottage style playhouse complete with rounded windows and door with functional shutters. The house is in two shades of pink with a purple roof – colourful and smart it will look good anywhere. UV resistant plastic means that it will never dull down always looking good and it is low maintenance too with just a hose down to keep it clean. Pop inside and you will find a sink with a faucet and a stove with clicking knobs! The best thing? It literally clicks together in a matter of minutes so the children will be playing in no time! Suitable for age 2+.

Little Tikes Pink Plastic Country Cottage: How safe is it?
As with all the playhouses in the Little Tikes range, this perfectly pink playhouse has been designed with small children in mind and addresses any concerns that parents may have in regards to safety issues. The construction of the house itself is superb, sturdy and strong, with chunky, rounded edges on all the features, including the doors and windows it is built to be as child friendly as possible. As with any product though, before you make a large purchase you want to ensure that it will be as safe as can be for your child to enjoy endless hours of fun inside. Below we discuss any safety issues that may raise concerns with parents.
Windows: The charming shutter-style windows on this cottage style house are designed with little fingers in mind. Little Tikes understand how much small children love opening and closing windows and doors and have left a gap in between the shutters when they are closed to ensure small fingers are not trapped or squashed.
Door: The door is amazingly detailed, one of the few playhouses that has a door handle! The door can be opened with the handle or by pulling on the open square panes in the centre of the door.
Accessories: This playhouse comes complete with a mini kitchen set-up, including a sink with taps and a cooker with real knobs that click when turned. All accessories are chunky in nature and don’t come with any small pieces that would cause concern for parents. All in all, great child-friendly play items that will provide endless fun.
