This cottage loves to travel! Decked out with a carrying handle, it's perfect for on-the-go play, but full-featured enough to be an at-home mainstay. Teeming with vibrant blue dragonflies, buzzing bees, and flapping butterflies, it's a cheery place to play. The outside of the house has four peek through windows and two doors that open and close. Kids can host a picnic on the roof deck for the tiny bunny and bear that come with the set. Slide some fingers into the crack in the chimney, and the entire house hinges open to reveal a two-story inside, too! Complete with two beds, two chairs, a table and a ladder, all made from high quality wood, this one's a keeper, and well-made enough to pass on. (Melissa and Doug, $35.46)
