“I like it even better than the wooden and cardboard one we had before,” said Ellen. “This dollhouse is much sturdier which is great since I am expecting girl number 4 and I want her to get to play with it too.” Read the full review here

Build & Store Block & Activity Table
“My son is into the whole Lego craze and my older daughter love[s] the Mega Blocks,” said Amber. “This Activity Table is perfect because you are able to use both kinds of blocks on it. My son sets [sic] on one side with his Lego’s building, and my older daughter sits on the other side building with your Mega Blocks.” Read the full review here
