I bought this for my little girls this Christmas and they absolutely loved it. It took me and my son at least 1 hr and a half to put this house together but my girls smiles and excitement was worth every minute. Its a pain, but just gotta have patients and follow each step. It was alil difficult knowing wat side some pieces needed to be facing so we were constantly looking at the picture on the box but even that wasnt much help either. Each piece had a sticker with a letter on it so that helped alot. Also, we build it in da living room, but my daughter's ended up wanting it in there room, uumm well there room is upstairs, this house is heavy, need at least to peeps to carry unless ur build like macho man then u shud be fine...Lol. so my suggestion mayb build it were you plan to leave it at, just sayin!!
