Six Little Hearts is a Childsmart Brand Rep.
If you cast your thoughts back on your own childhood for just a mini-moment, without doubt you can pull a few very special memories of your own play house adventures. Whether you enjoyed a cubby house, tree house, (or even just a few curtains draped over the family dining table) as a place to retreat for some incredible adventures, you've most certainly experienced the joy.
Whatever shape or form your own special place took-on, a secret hideaway for kids to enjoy provides an enormous ongoing source of happiness that's universal to all children, and it's all because a play house is a traditional standard in every young child's life.
Within all sorts of delightful childish walls, young imaginations and learning opportunities bloom, and friendships are forged and strengthened alongside siblings and mates. Pure magic!
As parents, all of us can experience this same joy and excitement all over again when we witness our own kids enjoy these same spaces.
And don't such things just get better with each passing year?!
This is the Worlds Apart Rose Petal Cottage by DreamTown and if it were mine when I was a kid, (or anything half as lovely), I'd have been a very, very happy kiddo indeed! Watching my youngest play in this house is, (for me), just divine, and it gives me the absolute kicks to see her enjoyment of it, each and every time she ventures within.
There are so many darling features that make this a magnetic play haven for kids. The design and attention to detail is amazing and as a stand-alone feature, the illustrations within and without, inspire so many games and play scenarios just on their own.
|Features include a working door, windows, and letterbox.|

This playhouse is every little girl's dream home. (PS: Boys will and do, love it too!)
Rose Petal Cottage is big and sturdy with a lightweight steel framework which handles quite a bit of play stress without issue. Thank goodness too. We've had a number of playhouses already and none have stood up to the strain of our children's play quite as well as this one has.
Inside, a pretty kitchen and living area invites young kids to play. It's a large space within, without being impractical from a grown-up perspective. We can easily move this house about - outside on pleasant days and back inside again as required. (Note that the cottage is recommended for indoor use only.) Currently our Rose Petal Cottage is stationed within our lounge area and is used and enjoyed every single day by our youngest.
The design, details and inclusions are lovely in this play house! The cottage comes with this matching oven and features real turning knobs and a working oven door. Peek inside the cooker and you'll find an illustrated shelf with a baking tray. The oven is crafted from strong board and is enhanced with plastic and metal features. Lots of cooking goes down in here!
By opening the wall of the cottage, children can extend the play area within. Kids can enjoy a real mantle piece of their own which is strong enough to support their ornaments. Above, a real and useable safety mirror adds another element to play. There's even a photo frame built into the wall in which kids can keep an actual photograph.
|A built in floor, hinged wall and fully decorated interior and exterior inspire hours of play.|
Two kids can play within Rose Petal Cottage without the space feeling cramped at all. Be warned though, kids shut grownups out of their space promptly once you've been outnumbered!
The cottage has a real working door with a stitched door handle and post box. There are windows with working shutters plus lace trim and gables which give youngsters enough space to be able to stand within. Nothing has been overlooked, ensuring your children will love this dream home for years to come.

The all-nylon outer of this play house zips securely and snuggly onto a strong metal frame. The opening wall of Rose Petal Cottage attaches with strong hinges and opens and closes with ease.
