"An evergreen house from little tikes"

Little Tikes Country Cottage Ever440S

Little Tikes Country Cottage Ever440S

Little Tikes an American company was founded in 1970, in 2006 it became part of MGA entertainment group which includes other toy manufacturers.

Little tikes make many childrens toys which are suitable for both home and child care settings.
Working in a school we have several little tikes’ product’s, one is the Little Tikes country cottage Childrens Playhouse that is shown here. This playhouse is usually known as the Little Tikes Evergreen Country Cottage. Little Tikes make several similar cottages with different colour schemes.

However, this Plastic cottage has green walls these are marked to make them look as if they might be green planks of wood. The roof of this cottage playhouse is red.
This house has 4 windows the surrounds of which are yellow; the windows each have 2 yellow shutters too. The windows are open windows with no substitute for glass in them. These windows are large enough for a small child to climb through especially if they have a chair or something to climb onto too.
The door which is nearly the full height of the house is yellow too.

Inside this house is a pretend sink unit with a swivel tap. There is also a pretend stove top that has some knobs which click when turned. There is also a play phone with push buttons.

Children enjoy playing in this house pretending to make dinner or cups of tea. There is only room for 2 children possibly 3 to play inside this house. We provide the children with a few extra houses play props such as a tea set, some pretend food, a doll.


Although a small play chair will fit inside the house it leaves no room for play so in the warm weather we put a small chair and table outside the house to extend the play opportunities. This house measures height - 130cm width - 135cm depth - 115cm it is suitable for children aged between about 2 and 6 years old


The children that I see playing in this house certainly enjoy it. All children love a playhouse somewhere of there own.

This house is suitable for outdoor or indoor use
The house is made of a strong molded plastic and is very durable. When it gets dirty it is fairly easy to clean with hot water and soap powder.


The RRP of this house is 279.99, it is on sale at Tesco’s too .I notice eBay has several second hand for sale. I think that if you buy one second hand its condition will still be fine, the plastic maybe a little faded. This is a toy that lasts several years in nursery schools with a lot of use so is strong and wears well.
Would I recommend? Yes, it’s good for imaginary role play.

Personally I think that if you have enough space in your garden that a wooden shed with windows would make a great playhouse then you could utilise it as a gardenshed or summer house to sit in when the kids grow up a bit.. A much more attractive option than these garish plastic houses. however small children do like these little tikes houses.

    I rather liked your last comment regarding a proper wooden shed type one - couldn't agree more! R. xxx
