You can plant flowers. There's a reservoir that collects rain water to water those flowers. And you can grow grass on the roof. Throw some soil and grass seed up there and you'll have a green roof in no time. The sink is a real working sink. You just fill up the removable basin and the sink pump shoots the water out. I can't even BEGIN to tell you how much Norah (my biggest water loving nut) was obsessed with this feature. She would play in the water all day if I let her.
There's a solar powered light, recycling bins, skylight and 6 holes to put water bottles in for more light (reflecting off the sun). It rounds out with a working door bell and a mailbox, too!
Construction took a while (daddy put it together) but then we left it inside the house for a few weeks while I waited for spring to show up with green grass for these photos. Unfortunately, it didn't fit through our door to take outside, so this mama had to take it halfway apart to get it outside.
For some reason, Norah wasn't intrested in getting dirty and actually planting the flowers, so mama did that work. She was happy to water them though (the playhouse comes with a few little accessories--a watering can, rake, shovel and phone). I'm sure kids would have tons of fun planting "their own" garden.
