Help the friendly shopkeeper organize the pet toys and food and keep eight fun-loving animals from going too wild. Peer into the puppy crate with the girl and gaze at the bright blue aquarium, birds and playful bunnies in the cheerful artwork on the windows and walls.

    I bought this for my preschool classroom. You could have heard a pin drop when I read the story using the house and props. My students were enthralled! I love it so much I bought the 3 Little Pigs set too. Worth every penny!  - Tabitha, preschool teacher

    My 4-year-old loves this little house! This is the second one I have purchased for her (the first was the 3 Little Pigs) and not only is it very easy to assemble, it is very age appropriate. There is great attention to detail of the characters and furniture as well. My daughter is not quite ready for a full-sized doll house so this is really perfect for keeping her attention as well as being sturdy enough for little hands. - Solana, mother of a four-year-old

    First let me just say this toy is built very well, and the details are great. The box to carry it all in is also sturdy, light, and easily carried. Second, my son is four, but he is also Autistic. This is the first toy that he actually has sat down and played with more than once. He loves it! He can play by himself, but now he is starting to interact with others and have other people play with him. OT(Occupational Therapist) has decided that this is one of the best toys for children she has seen in a long time, and is going to recommend these toy house/storybooks toys to all of her families. Best toy I have ever bought!   - Amanda, mother of a four-year-old

    My almost 3 year old son LOVES this storybook house. And this is a kid who is addicted to trains and I honestly didn't know if he was capable of enjoying anything other than Thomas....  

    We put it together last week and he can't stop playing with it. I read him the story only one time, and he knows it by heart. For the first time I can really say that someone has figured out how to bring a story to life. I love watching his imagination develop.  - JDavis, parent of a three-year-old
