Rated 4 out of 5Â by Sarah F My daughter just turned 2, and she really enjoyed it (along with the other playmates that came over for the party). I love how it grows with them, and the stages are a great feature. However, certain features don't function on my unit. For example, there is what appears to be a light switch on the back of the home. Nothing happens when it is moved into the "on" or "off" positions. I tried taking it apart and reconnecting the wires - no improvement.
That being said, the she still plays with it daily....and it keeps her occupied for 15 minutes or so at a time. NOTHING else that we own does that! :) [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Kara H i think it is great. my daughter is 9 months and she loves it. it keeps her very entertained and busy. i like all the stuff thats on the houses and she loves to walk in and out the door. the best part about it is the smart stages. so when she gets older,she can go to stage two,and then a little bit older she can go to step 3 which i love.that means she can play with it for years. its educational and will make her learn stuff while having fun and playing! when we had the party, all the kids loved it and all the parents told me they were going to go out and buy it for there little ones.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Leslie G This is a great addition to any playroom. The Smart Stages really do allow the toy to grow with the child or to be fun for siblings of different ages. The sounds and lights intrigue both girls and lots of variation to allow me to keep my sanity. My 1 year old was able to entertain herself from the moment she saw this little house and continue playing until it was nap time! My 3 year old is also enamored with this home. She loves the mail slots and the door bell that rings, the light switch that flips the light on, and the interactive door! She is always welcoming her sister into her house! I love this toy!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Sara H The kids loved playing with it and discovering it's different songs and sounds. They especially loved the mailbox and shape sorter sections of the toy. Additonally, the little ones were entertained by the lights & music/sounds and toddlers enjoyed pretend-play.
As a parent, I was not completely satisfied. I wish it could have more numbers (1 to 10) and maybe more focus on the alphabet. You can see on the box that the toy is made for kids up to 36 months, BUT I disagree. I would say its perfect for kids UNDER 2 years of age. 2 to 3 year old kids will have fun playing with it, but there isn't the same level of engaged learning.
