Advantages: Theres lots for your child to do, and it will give them hours of fun playing with the cottage.
Disadvantages: The characters that came with it weren't scented as stated.
We brought this for my daughters 3rd birthday which was a couple days ago and they loved it. The overall cottage is shaped like a watering can and all the accessories can fit into it. There is a handle which you fix on the top of it making it easy for your child to carry around. The cottage comes complete with 6 of the Fifi favourite characters: Fifi, Bumble, Primrose, Violet, Stingo and Slugsy. The characters are scented and are great as there not to small so are easy for your child to play with and there very bright and cheerful.
The cottage has lots of things for your child to play with and surprise things for them to do for example some of the accessories that come with it are: A little clip on apron for Fifi for when she is baking her cakes. Inside the small oven is a baking tray with cakes on and when you put them in the oven and take them out the cakes have raised. The window box has flowers on top when you lift the flowers out you will realise that it is actually a little flower slide for your child, the same with the flower pot with flowers in when you lift it you will realise it is a flower ring that should fit your child. There's a little swing which you can fit the characters on and push them. A table with food on when you flip the table over the food has disappeared and it is an empty table. My daughters couldn't work out how this has happened. A hammock and deck chair so your characters can relax. A watering can which when you water the flowers they move, and a bed that the duvet opens and the characters fit inside it and they lay down. Also there is a rod which you attach to the spout of the watering can and Bumble clips on to it and flies around. There are lots more accessories that I haven't included like saucepans, plates, cups, sofas, a sponge which you put iced water on and it takes the muddy prints off Fifis boots and there are lots more things.
I think this cottage is a great buy as there's so much for your child to do and they can really get involved with it. Whether there pushing the swing, opening the shutter curtains or watering the flowers. I think this will really improve your child's role play and fine motor skills. Some of the accessories that come with are quite small like the plates so you just have to watch they don't get lost. I think its great how there are a lot of surprises on the accessories. Some of the things I hadn't even realised what they could do like the cakes rising until I read the instruction booklet, which I recommend you do so your child doesn't miss out on extra things that it does. .My daughters played with this for hours and they didn't get bored. I would say this is one of my best toy buys and I'm going to look out for some more of the Fifi bits that you can buy like the market stall and shop.
The only negative things that I can say is that it said the characters are scented but mine weren't. I got other people to check as thought maybe I couldn't smell them but they definitely weren't. This could have been a fault on just the characters we had. Also there was a small watering can missing from the accessories that came with it. But other then that I really recommend you buy this and I'm sure your child will love it.
Summary: Overall I think this is a great buy and would recommend it.
