Creativity Abounds with the Constructive Playthings Cottage! {Giveaway}

My youngest daughter looks up to her older sister.  She no longer wants to play with age appropriate toys and only will entertain playing with her sister’s toys.  Most of the time, this is not a problem, but big sister’s room is graced with an expansive and beautiful doll house which little sister is not allowed to touch.  So, I was thrilled to be able to introduce little sister to the a Constructive Playthings Exclusive, the Country Cottage with Furniture.

To be honest, I didn’t know how it would go.  While the cottage is very nice, it isn’t as intricate as her sister’s, but is MUCH more age appropriate for my almost 3 year old.  When the house arrived, I opened the box and immediately smelled wood.  I love that smell!  This cottage is obviously made of real wood which is a great benefit to longevity of the toy.  Usually, my husband puts together the toys, but I decided to take on the challenge and was pleasantly surprised.  I was able to assemble the entire house in only about 15-20 minutes (I learned that hinges are my nemesis).  All parts were included and undamaged and the instructions were quite clear.  A little about the Cottage from the website:

Children who love to play house will love this beautiful country cottage. The house with its 18-pc wooden furniture set and accessories, complete with cloth blankets and pillows, will inspire young imaginations everywhere. This 16″ H x 11 7/8″ W x 8 1/4″ D solid wood house on hinges opens and closes for play and easy storage of furniture and accessories.

We also received a posable family with the cottage (sold separately) which includes 4 family members.  I strategically placed them in the house and called my daughter in to see what I had done. She was elated to have her very own house and immediately went to play.  The house kept her attention for at least 30 minutes (which is a lot for a 2 year old) while she used her imagination to create real life scenarios in the cottage.

As a Mom, I like that the house is sturdy, easy to assemble and priced right!  If you are looking to do your holiday shopping, the cottage can be purchased for $54.99 (or $46.75 with my 15% discount!).  I like that the house opens on hinges and magnetically closes to keep all the pieces in one spot.  The cottage is also small enough to be stored in the closet and moved around the house for playtime.

If you are not in the market for a doll house, make sure you check out the other great gifts for the holidays available at Constructive Playthings.  And as a Constructive Mom, I can offer you a 15% off discount.  Just click on my link to take advantage of the sale (this is NOT an affiliate link).
