TOYS: The 360° Dolls House from Little Tikes

Playing with a doll's house is such a fond childhood memory for many and children nowadays are still enjoying the imaginary world that can be created with them. Little Tikes have created Tikes Place* (£64.99), which is a doll's house that is not only accessible from 360°, but also includes mini versions of their classic toys and a pull-out garden/patio area. The result is a spacious house filled with various areas for little people to play, including a kitchen, garden, driveway, bathroom, staircase and dining area. It also comes with twelve accessories, many of which are mini versions of popular Little Tikes toys. Who wouldn't want to own a mini Cozy Coupe?

One of the best features of Tikes Place is that it is possible to play from all angles, unlike most doll's houses where the back is just a wall. This is ideal for siblings who want to play together (and parents who want to minimise the inevitable 'share nicely' discussion!) because there is plenty of space to sit around the house and there is something for the little figures to do from all angles. Tikes Place is also completely unisex, so that girls and boys can enjoy it for years to come.

The mini versions of popular Little Tikes toys are seriously cute and familiar for a lot of children. As soon as Isabella saw the mini Cozy Coupe car she said it was just like her car and loved pushing the lady around in it. There are twelve accessories included within the Tikes Place, which include Cozy Coupe vehicle, Turtle Sandbox, 2-in-1 Swing, First Slide, Cook ‘n Grow Kitchen, Trampoline, Table, 2x Chairs and a Family of Four (Mum, Dad, Sister and Baby). Isabella really liked that the doll's arms and legs can be moved, so that they can sit on the chairs or in the car with ease. The baby also fits perfectly in the swing, which hangs underneath the stairs and can be swung backwards and forwards.

Tikes Place is on the larger side, which has its pluses and minuses. On the plus side there is plenty of space for more than one child to play with it, there are more areas for the little family to play and it is better value for money. It does also come with a handy carry handle, so moving the house around is very easy. On the minus side it does require more floor/surface space, so if space is limited it is worth checking out the measurements (W: 58.42cm D:38.10cm H:45.72cm). A clever part of the design is that the house can become even bigger by pulling out the garden on one side and the patio area on the other side. These can very easily be pulled in and out as and when they are needed.

There are also various interactive aspects to Tikes Place, including real light-up porch lights, a working doorbell and the toilet makes a flushing noise when flushed. As you can probably imagine, Isabella loved these aspects so much and when she first discovered the toilet flushing noise we did hear it quite a lot!

Feel free to leave a comment - I love reading every single one :)
