Little Tikes Cape Cottage Review
We are so happy the weather is finally warming up, so that means more outdoor time! Now to drag my kids away from the TV…
We are always looking for awesome outdoor toys, and Little Tikes are my first go-to guys, their toys are durable and affordable, and super cute. So we were super lucky to get the chance to review the Little Tikes Cape Cottage, and as you can imagine Josephine was over the moon when it arrived. Look at her face. It totally says it all.
Upon opening the box (5 seconds after it was brought in the house) I was a little worried I wasn’t going to put it together and keep my sanity. But, to my surprise, it was super easy. Plus it came with easy to follow directions! That’s a bonus..
There are 2 working doors and they snapped right in easily. And check out that cute little mail slot! Adorable!
All of the pieces snapped together easily and had these large plastic screws. It came with this little tool that screwed them right in place. No need to drag out the tool box which is a win in my book.
It’s taking shape! I was impressed with how stable and solid the walls felt.
After all of the walls were up and screwed in all we had to do is snap in the working window shutters. Super easy to do!
The roof was the most challenging and time consuming for me. It took me a few minutes to figure it out… but once I got all of the pieces snapped into place things moved along a lot faster.
It came with these little red tile looking thats that slide over the connecting pieces. They look great and hold everything in place, securing the roof.
I did use a screwdriver and metal screws to attach the flag holder, but they only took me a few seconds each. In total I think the whole project took me less than 30 mins. Which is a huge bonus when you have a 3 year old eager to play.
She has asked me several times now if she can sleep in “her own house”. Oh if she only knew…
Until grownup reality sets in, Little Tikes will continue to be our toys of choice. Check out their full collection and let me know what you think!
