Dollhouses and play sets are staples of the toy world that are beloved by children all over the world. Dollhouse and play sets date back centuries and come in a wide array of colors and styles. One of the most delightful and unique dollhouse/playsets on the market today is Lakeshore’s “Adventure Treehouse.”
The Adventure Treehouse is a three layer play set that resembles a tree and even comes with over a dozen pieces of furniture that look as if they were made out of wood and leaves. This delightful house could be the home of fairies or gnomes yet its appeal is unisex enough for it to be as appealing to boys as it is for girls. The color scheme of the house—especially the beautiful green—is enough to catch anyone’s eye immediately and the quality of the wood is par none. This is a strong object that is unlikely to fall apart any time soon.
The Adventure Treehouse comes with 20 pieces of furniture. Some of the pieces—namely the books that go on the shelf—are quite small so this is not a toy for extremely small children. The furniture matches the theme of the house perfectly and the bed even includes soft cloth pillows and sheets. The tables and chairs are designed to look like tree trunks and leaves and even have patterns printed on them to convey that concept. There is a rocking chair that really rocks, a vanity mirror with a reflective surface (although not actual breakable glass), a knitted green rug that compliments the overall aesthetics.
Although this set comes with 20 pieces of furniture, it does not include dolls. Instead, the dolls are sold separately for $19.99 and are available in a range of ethnicities. The dolls are soft and bendable yet also durable.
The Adventure Treehouse retails for $49.99. Considering the included furniture and fineness of the overall product, this price is not unreasonable. That said, it would be nice if dolls were included in the set. The absence of such a figure is the only true flaw of this item. I give the Adventure Treehouse 4.5 out of 5 stars and highly recommend it.
