Good points:
Not too big for a smaller garden, my little boy's eyes nearly popped out when he saw this put up for his birthday, and he's been in it ever since! Easy and quick to put up with two people.
Bad points:
Roof was difficult to fit as wood wouldn't join up and was misaligned but we've overcome this with felt over the top to stop the rain coming in.

Good points:
Great for imaginative play for the kids and a magnet for any of their friends that come round to play. Love the storage underneath!
Bad points:
Going up the ramp is very easy for the children (5 and 2) but going down is a bit harder and there has been a few scrapes. More for the older ones that try to come down too fast. Some rough edges that you would need to sand down to prevent splinters.

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Perfect size for a small garden and pleasantly surprised at the headroom inside - my child is 6 years old and I am 5ft 1 and could stand up easily! The kids love it and call it the chicken house. Took 2 adults approx 3 hours to construct. When sanded, painted and the roof felted, it will be a lovely wee house for the little ones.
Bad points:
Finish is poor - far too many rough edges around window openings where we've had a few splinters already. Roof in particular is of poor quality and fit with chunks missing from edges (but this could be how badly it had been handled during delivery). Despite a great deal of tweaking the roof still has about an inch gap at the apex. The instructions state that the ramp should be fixed using 2 x 3mm screws. Would strongly recommend that 5mm screws are used to fix ramp in place as it came off in one tap from underneath which could be very unsafe. Fortunately there were two spare 5mm screws in the pack. We would also recommend that the floor is not secured until the front panel is put on as it had no "give" and was impossible to put on without first taking out the screws of the base.

Good points:
Very sturdy, little boy loves being able to play up high!
Bad points:
The only problem we found when building the playhouse was the instructions, there are no written words just pictures which aren't very clear, other than that it was surprisingly easy to esemble but probably need more that 2 people as its quite heavy.
