Step2 Sweetheart Playhouse

When a little girl wants a playhouse that her and her friends can share, then she wants the Step2 Sweetheart Playhouse. The design and layout of this playhouse make it something that your little girl can call her own.

With this playhouse, your little girl can entertain guests indoors and outdoors. She can keep her house looking pretty by planting flowers in the heart-shaped flower boxes, and she can even get a little privacy by just closing the door.

There are plenty of features here for your little girl to enjoy, but there is also plenty of room to grow. This is the ideal playhouse for the little girl who wants her own space, but is also interested in being an excellent host as well.

Basic Features of the Step2 Sweetheart Playhouse

The Step2 Sweetheart Playhouse has a full door that opens and closes, and two of the windows have shutters that also open and close. There is storage spots for play food (not included) along the wall, and a grill that can be used inside or outside.

The grill/stove has knobs that turn, and there is a heart-shaped flower box in one of the windows (flower not included). There is a doorbell that makes sounds when the button is pressed, and a clock with hands that can be moved. The roof also has a skylight to allow in more light when needed.

The recommended age group for this playhouse is two years of age and up. As long as your little girl can fit in her playhouse, then there is no reason to consider retiring it. There is no telling how long this little playhouse will be her retreat from the world.

Specific Features of the Step2 Sweetheart Playhouse

With its unique pink and white color scheme and the noticeable use of hearts throughout the decor, there is a lot of fun the Step2 Sweetheart Playhouse has to offer. The interactive features include:

  • A cooking table that can be used indoors or outdoors
  • A doorbell that makes sound when the button is pressed
  • Full-size doors that open and close
  • Full-size shutters in two windows
  • A heart-shaped flower box in one window
  • An interactive electronic phone
  • A clock with hands that can be moved to help learn time
  • A mail slot in the door

As with any playhouse that is designed for a special look, there are features included that are only there for looks and offer no interactive option. Those features are:

  • The burners on both sides of the cooking table are just decals
  • None of the hearts in the design are interactive
  • The textured walls and roof have no interactive parts

This playhouse can be used indoors or outdoors, but it is definitely more fun when it is out in the sun. The outdoor grill and the skylight allow your little girl and her friends to make the most of a warm summer's day.

This playhouse requires some assembly, and it also requires four "AAA" size batteries for the various electronic features. Assembly can be done safely by one adult, but it goes quicker if there is a helper.

Dimensions and Weight

The assembled dimensions of the Step2 Sweetheart Playhouse are 47 inches wide, 53 inches deep, and 58 inches high. When assembled, it weighs 99 pounds. The weight of this playhouse may be a reason to get a helper when assembling it, and it should never be moved after it is assembled by any less than two adults.

Products Similar to the Step2 Sweetheart Playhouse

The Step2 Naturally Playful Storybook Cottage is also a heavily themed playhouse that has a lot of very interesting interactive features. It has the same cooking surface, full door and full window shutters found on the Sweetheart Playhouse. The most noticeable difference is that the Storybook Cottage has more of a forest theme than a pink and white hearts theme.

The Little Tikes Cape Cottage Playhouse uses a pink and white theme, but in a different way than the Step2 Sweetheart Playhouse. The colors are similar, but the Cape Cottage Playhouse lacks the hearts and gingerbread design of the Sweetheart Playhouse. But both do share similar interactive features, and both can act as a place where kids can get away from the adult world.

Little girls and boys both need a place of their own to be themselves. For little girls, the Step2 Sweetheart Playhouse offers the ideal place to escape and just be themselves with their friends.
