Review:
How many toys out there appeal equally to a preschooler and a "tween", while being environmentally friendly at the same time?

The Recycled Cardboard Dollhouse turns out to be a wonderful art project for a range of ages. The package wastes nothing - even the box itself becomes part of the house. Testers loved seeing the house take shape. They spent hours decorating and coloring the many accessories, then embarked on days upon days of using the house as a centerpiece for pretend play, adding and rotating their own embellishments from household items and scraps, to small playthings and trinkets.

Yes, the box and directions offer possible ways to decorate the house but testers couldn't have been happier having the freedom to create from their own imaginations.
