I thought this looked great; really attractive box. I really loved the packaging and when the box was opened I love the design and style, fun bold colours and accessories. The contents look good and there is quite a lot included, but the doors kept breaking off which was annoying and as my daughter couldn’t fix them herself it was frustrating for her. I believe the age range this is aimed at is appropriate. My daughter had fun playing imaginatively with it. She did enjoy playingwith this; to begin with she took it everywhere with her but lost interest fairly quickly. I think it’s pricey for what it is. A good improvement would be to stop the coloured doors coming off. I would consider buying this; if someone really loved the hive I would think of it because I did actually think it was a really cute little play set! I would recommend it to others if the kid liked the hive, because it’s good fun, but I still feel it is over priced. It is cute, colourful, good fun and good for imagination. The doors need to be better designed though but otherwise, I really love this product. My four year old loved it and it was very cute! Alison Gilbey – Holly 4 Years

At first I thought it looked small but it does open up and is quite a good size. The packaging is very attractive. The quality of the contents is good; it appears to be quite sturdy but includes a lot of small pieces which may break with time. I think age 3 years seems a good age for creative play, so this is ideal. There was not many accessories, such as furniture, included; consequently, after playing with it for some time, she ran out of ideas of what to do with it. She was impressed when she first saw it but she lost interest quickly. I do feel it is quite expensive for what it is too. The inside is not deep and large enough and as a result the props keep falling down. Maybe handles could be added for transportation too. This product looks nice at first but it does not offer much to play with; the inside is not large enough and thus the props are not steady. This makes it difficult to play with, as my daughter did not know the Hive, she lost interest quite quickly. Adeline K – Hannah 3 Years

My daughter was excited to open the packaging because the product looked so inviting. I thought the product was well explained with many added extras. The packaging was bright, colourful and engaging. The quality of the contents seemed good. There are quite a few small pieces that could easily be lost though. As mentioned above because of the small pieces included, the product for safety reasons would not be appropriate for any child under 3.  Milly enjoyed opening up the bee hive. She quickly found hidden little doors and windows, this added to her excitement. The only problem is that each room in the hive is fairly narrow in depth;  this leaves little room for imaginative play with more than two characters.  Milly found it very easy to put together. It was quick and simple to transport when out and about too.  She has played withit continually for the last two weeks! She really enjoys playing with it.  I think it offers excellent value for money. The only improvement is the rooms within the hive need to be deeper. I would buy this again and recommend it to others. It is an imaginative, portable play house with many added extras! Faye Dewhurst – Milly 3 Years

I would recommend it to others if the kid liked the hive, because it’s good fun, but I still feel it is over priced. It is cute, colourful, good fun and good for imagination.
