Advantages: Good as new after 8 years.
I bought this Little Tikes Log Cabin about 8 years ago, it was the exact same model that is still sold today. I remember at the time it being about £300, but I only bought one because it was on sale for £150 in Toys R Us- they still stock them but I think at the very expensive price of £389.
This came flat packed in a large box. All the bits you need are in the box including screws, screw caps and full instructions. The cabin has to be fully self assembled, it looked difficult but turned out to be quite easy (it took two of us). The walls just sort of slot together, but the rest has to be screwed into place.
The cabin itself is made from durable plastic, all the components are plastic including the window shutters, door and indoor accessories. It is styled to look like a Log Cabin (the walls are dark brown and log shaped) with a red stable door and yellow shutters around the windows. There aren't any sharp edges. Once up the cabin looks great, it stands at 150cm high, is 145cm in length and 122cm wide so is a good size and a young child can easily stand up in it. There is enough room for two small fold away chairs. Inside there is a fake log fire (well a picture of a fire on the wall!) a fold out table, wall shelves and a phone. The door opens and closes snugly as do the shutters. The fold up table is also sturdy, and has lasted being put up and down without breaking or becoming loose. The Log Cabin has been outside for almost 10 years in all weathers and in direct sunlight. There is no damage from this only slight fading of the roof. The window shutters, door and table are still in good condition and still shut tight. This is a very sturdy house, during the very heavy winds we had a few years ago, it actually got picked up and thrown back down but this didn't dent it or even mark it.
My kids had loads of use out of this house, much more than the previous toy house they had, I think because it was bigger. Sadly for the last few years it has been used as a 'shed' to store other outdoor toys.
I would recommend this as I would any Little Tikes product. I want to give it 5 stars but will give it 4 because of the cost.
Summary: All Little Tikes toys last years and years this is no exception
