The Little Tikes Princess Cottage Playhouse has two half-doors that open and close, and two windows that also open and close. There is a mail slot children can use, but this playhouse does not come with any toy mail at the time of this post.
Next to the front door is a flag holder that your child can use to hold any flag they would like. As with the toy mail, there are no flags that come with this playhouse. There are also corner windows that do not open or close.
The walls of this playhouse are simulated to look like bricks, and the roof is simulated to look like shingles. There are also two windows in the roof of this playhouse that are located above the two windows that open and close.

Your child's imagination is what fuels play time with this playhouse, as there are a variety of features that are only there for show. Those non-interactive features include:
Because this playhouse has a smaller footprint than many of the other Little Tike playhouses, this is a toy that can be enjoyed indoors or outdoors. For your child's safety, you should place this toy on a flat, soft surface that allows for easy walking.
Also, there is a significant amount of assembly required to put this playhouse together. Because of the size of the pieces that come with the playhouse, it is recommended that assembly be done by two adults for maximum safety. When this playhouse is delivered, it is delivered in a larger box that should be handled by two people as well.
When it is assembled, the Little Tikes Princess Cottage Playhouse is approximately 35 inches wide, 43 inches deep and 49 inches tall. The shipping weight is approximately 36 pounds, which is why it is recommended that two adults receive the package. The final assembled weight is approximately 30 pounds, which would make it necessary for two adults to get involved in moving this playhouse after it is assembled.
Some retailers will not ship this product internationally because of its weight, so you will want to discuss that issue if you live outside of the United States. Because of the product's size, it would be beneficial to arrange a delivery time with the carrier that is convenient for you and a helper.
For something in the same brand, the Little Tikes Cape Cottage is very similar in design to the Princess Cottage, with the primary distinction being the different color schemes. The Cape Cottage has all of the same interactive features of the Princess Cottage, but the Cape Cottage has a color scheme that is more earth tone and not nearly as bright as the Princess Cottage.
Backyard Discover offers its Columbus All-Cedar Wood Playhouse as a product similar to the Princess Cottage. While both products share a very similar layout, the Wood Playhouse is made of all wood instead of plastic. The Wood Playhouse has half-doors that open and close and windows with real wooden window frames.
Just an option to consider should wood be more favorable since most popular playhouses on the market are plastic. Step2 is another common brand to check out as well!
Imagination is important to a child, and any toy that sparks that imagination has value. The Little Tikes Princess Cottage Playhouse and its loud color scheme will get your child's imagination going and help to make any day a fun play day. Should the color scheme work, this model is one to put on the list of worthy candidates.
