I remember how my sister and I used to construct our playhouses out of the furniture and all sorts of rags we could find. It was fun but we wished we had something more stable. Plus, our toys needed a home of their own for when we'd had enough!
The item is sturdy and large measuring 31.3 x 25.3 x 16.6 inches and 33 pounds in weight with the lid staying up until it's lowered down which I believe would help to avoid accidents (like little fingers getting slammed). According to the reviews, there is no smell of chemicals coming from it. The top can withstand 100 pounds weight, so it's safe to be used as a bench. Some people suggest making a cushion for the top for more comfort.
It is very cheerful painted pink and white with some green and yellow added to it which makes it look like a real dollhouse. I guess that with the addition of some furniture it can be used as one too, and any girl would be delighted to have it in her bedroom.
I love the fact that the visual appeal is combined with the size and functionality (dollhouse, bench, storage box) making it not only a toy but a way to keep the room tidy and children happy.
