I purchased this for my girls ages 7 & 8 for Christmas this past year. Thought it would be a great gift for them to hone in on their creativity by decorating it to their specs. I didn't expect it to be super awesome because of the price, but it is made of a cheap crappy material that pales in comparison to cardboard. The roof didn't even go on straight and is paper thin. The doors on the front don't close completely either, and they swing open. Yes, it's put together correctly. I don't usually post reviews but I felt I had to on this one.
