**GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED**
#54 Amy M
It may only be the first week of June, but with school officially out in many areas, it’s summer as far as I’m concerned. That means many things……including ice cream treats and playing in the backyard!
Many summer memories will be built around our backyard this year, and I know that one item in particular will be quite popular:
The Step2 My Clubhouse has arrived!!!
A certain 4-year old I know is doing the *happy dance*. While her asthma and allergies kept her from enjoying it as soon as it arrived (poor thing), she’s so much better now, and she’s excited about her new clubhouse!
After all, doesn’t every kid dream of their own clubhouse?
This is geared for ages 2 and up, and every kid, no matter what age, has to at least peek inside (even adults) – it’s that cool!
As you can see, Adult assembly is required. I will say that this has been one of the easier things we’ve put together by far.
Dimensions are 48.00 H 68.00 W 36.75 D – plenty of room for multiple kids, with multiple entries and exits. There’s the door (obvious), the gate, and the crawl-through area (adorable)!
The clubhouse is so much fun, and it’s built to look like a real wooden clubhouse built out in the woods. I love this look with the “slats of wood”.
One side features a picnic table, which is perfect for snack time (yes, ice cream please), playing restaurant, or just having a break. Easily seats 2 children.
But, it’s the details that make it so charming.
My Clubhouse comes with plenty of stickers to attach both inside and outside. I enlisted the help of my daughter, who happens to be sticker-crazy, for some fun decorating! From a treasure map to a lantern, the clubhouse appears to have everything, including a secret hiding compartment. In fact, the hiding compartment is real – and while the lock is only imagined (via sticker), kids really can store a few items in there.
While after a bit of time outside, stickers can fade, I love that Step2 has built-in details that will never go away!
I love these:
- Spider Web and Spider
- Baseball Bat and Ball
- Actual Chalkboard (I totally envision a “No Boys Allowed” sign here one day – with an exception maybe for Daddy)
- You also can Personalize the clubhouse by writing your child’s name on the doorway
As far as the roof goes, it is a fabric roof, which is durable and weather resistant. We’ve had some rough thunderstorms here in Dallas lately, and I’ve been impressed how the roof handled the severe rain. While there were large water puddles on the roof after the storm (and LARGE HAIL) passed, no damage at all. I can’t say that about many houses in the neighborhood. These photos show you what the roof looks like on the outside (left) and inside (right). Plenty of support.
While we were busy assembling the clubhouse, my daughter was busy herself – creating “Clubhouse Rules”. I love that girl of mine – so creative. But where did she get that idea? She created her own book with photos describing the rules. So cute – it will be kept forever.
She’s a happy camper right now, and can’t wait for her cousin to come over and play!
