Step 2 Naturally Playful® Countryside Cottage™ Review And Giveaway

It never really gets cold here, so we spend most of the year outside. We're always looking for new ideas and products to keep our children active outside.



Step 2 has a huge selection of outdoor toys. They are the nation's largest toddler toy manufacturer and marketer of high quality plastic products. Step 2 strives to create amazing products that will be enjoyed for years.

Step 2 sent us the Naturally Playful® Countryside Cottage™.


Take a tip to the countryside with Step2’s Naturally Playful Countryside Cottage. This adorable play house will bring the charming old-world back to life in children's imaginations with its stone cottage and shale roof. A working Dutch door and built in planter for flowers heightens the old-fashioned make-believe feeling. Detailed interior fixtures include a stone fireplace, kitchenette with sink, swivel faucet and burner with clicking knob. A postal mail slot, electronic doorbell and a play phone are included to complete the cottage.

It came in one big box and didn't really have a whole lot of pieces to put together. I could have easily assembled it by myself, but I took pictures while my dad and husband put it together.


These are the pieces that it came in.


Evan stood and rang the doorbell over and over while they put the playhouse together. It took 2(AAA) batteries and was easy to screw into place. There is a mail slot right next to the doorbell that Evan has had a blast putting real mail through.


The sink area has has a swivel faucet, stove burner, and a clicking knob. If this playhouse had a little table and chairs, it would be perfect.


There is a phone that also takes 2(AAA) batteries. Evan loves to call people on his phone.


There is a planter that we'll eventually buy flowers for and let Evan plant them. I thought that fake flowers or something came with it, but they don't. Evan will have a blast watering his own flowers.


I took play food from our Step 2 kitchen and Evan likes to "make lunch". He kept looking for somewhere to sit and eat it. He didn't understand that he could have a sink, but no table. I think I'll purchase a little picnic table to go right outside the playhouse.


It also serves as a playpen for Isabella. It was morning and damp so I put one of those picnic blankets down and she crawled around and played with the food. Evan kept going in there to play with her.


The playhouse is 58.50 H x 55.00 L x 54.00 W. It is large enough for two children, but I think it would start the be cramped with three. I could also easily fit in there with Evan. I love how open it is. It lets in a ton of natural light and keeps the breeze going through on hot days.


The playhouse is large, but not too big to be kept inside. Since it is really open, lots of light will be able to get in even if you keep it in a playroom. The quality is amazing and we look forward to years of play with the Countryside Cottage. Be sure to check out Step 2 for all of their other amazing products that are sure to keep your child's imagination going.

What a generous giveaway! We have three little ones (3.5, 2 & one will be delivered via cesarean on April 7th). This is our first year gardening, and we are hoping to find some outdoor play equipment for them at garage sales in the next few weeks/months. Winning something new would be such a blessing for our family! I took a look at the Step 2 site, and they have so many wonderful things that it was really hard to choose just one thing I'd like to have for my girls. I think I've settled on the Naturally Playful Exploring Nature Combo. I love the sandbox and water play table, especially the little umbrella that goes with it. Tactile exploration is so important for little ones! The adventurer type playhouse that comes in the set is adorable and fairy-like and I think my girls would fit right at home in something like that. The slide just ads that element of fun and exercise that all little ones need! Thank you so much for this opportunity!
