ELC Rose Cottage - keeping your child entertained for hours!
ELC Happyland Rose Cottage

ELC Happyland Rose Cottage
Advantages: Good development opportunities, great role-playing toy.
Disadvantages: Discontinued stock - possibly check eBay for sales.
We've had Rose Cottage for almost a year now - my daughter received this for her 2nd birthday off a close friend, and it's been a firm favourite ever since!
>> The Cottage
The actual cottage is a downstairs/upstairs set up - it has an actual front and sides with door (that opens) and several windows, whilst having an open accessible back. Through the back, you can access the indoors set-up.
The downstairs has a living space and kitchen area, with interactive sounds (door bell, on the mat; cooker; television).
The upstairs has a bathroom, a double bed (the parents area) and bunk beds for the children!
>> What you get
As well as the actual interactive house, you get a collection of 5 figures - a "typical" 2x parents, a boy and a girl, and a dog. I'm guessing this is to depict a regular family, but as we all know this isn't always the case now - lifestyles have changed and so have family set-ups! There is also a 1 person car too.
>> The particulars
This retailed for £30 in Early Learning Centre shops and online for a period. As with ELC though, Happyland is regularly on offer, and it wasn't usually necessary to pay full price. This isn't available anymore through the website though, which suggests it was discontinued at the time of the Happyland redesign (more rounded corners, more toddler friendly!).
>> What we think
Personally in our household, this is a major hit. My daughter loves making up little roleplay situations with the figures, which tend to fit around what's going on at home (potty training has equaled a lot of figures visiting the cottage bathroom!). She enjoys the car, but doesn't use it a huge amount and probably wouldn't miss it if it were to go missing. However, the dog is a firm favourite, and is involved in every scenario!
Summary: A very good Happyland roleplay toy, for good imaginations!
