I was sent the Butterbee Cottage to review from Big Game Hunters. It arrived on Monday in this ENORMOUS cardboard box.
This is going to be a very picture heavy blog post as I really want to showcase the house from box to built and will show close-ups of each room once done.
Here is the box it arrived in:
Once I unpacked the main box this was inside it:
This is main building blocks of the house:
I spread them all out on the floor so I could see what I had to manage. I have to add that I am TERRIBLE at flat-pack furniture.
Here are the instructions of how to build it:
I started, as per the instructions, by putting the back up, and linking it in by one of the sides:
Then the first floor went in, along with the stair case:
Then the front doors:
Followed by the second floor:
And then the second side:
Then I put the roof on the top, and voila, the whole thing stayed together. No screws, no bolts….
Here is a close-up of the side, including the little window boxes, which is a lovely extra touch!
Here is the finished article:
I left all of the furniture boxes unpacked so that my daughter could have the excitement of unpacking them once she got home from school:
Here is a collated picture of the whole building process:
Here is one excited little girl ready to start unpacking!
We started by unpacking the kitchen:
We then did the living room:
After that, we did the dining room, which we put on the second floor.
We put the kids room on the second floor as well:
Here is the master-bedroom on the very top floor:
And an ensuite bathroom:
Here is a picture of the finished interior of the house:
Very happy girl:
Here is a picture of Alara playing with the finished dolls house.
Here is a collage of all the rooms:
Obviously, I was sent this item for free to review, so I didn’t have to pay for it, but I was VERY impressed when I looked at the price.
The full set including all of the furniture (6 packs) can be found here.
As you can see from the photos, the house and the furniture is of a very good quality, beautiful colours and sturdy.
I used a small amount of blu-tack to stick pots, vases and things to the tables so that they didn’t get knocked over during play.
Thank you very much for reading.
