It appears to neatly fill the purpose of any kids’ playhouse: to give a smaller kid a small and secure place to play and busy themselves. In this Little Tikes Endless Adventures Tikes Town Playhouse review, let us sum up and state what sets this particular playhouse apart–both with respect to where it might suit any one parent or child’s particular tastes and where it’s lacking.
Lifetime Big Stuff Adventure Play Set – Product Basics
Little TIkes’s Endless Adventures Playhouse sells itself with it its four walls, each with a different “place in town” theme lending to, as the product is named for, continued varied backyard “adventures”–one wall is meant to resemble a schoolhouse or a firehouse depending on which of the stickers that come with the product are used to decorate it, another is a supermarket, another is a gas station front, and another is a park basketball hoop. It’s reasonably sizable–its dimensions are 55x49x58 in.–and recommended for children 18 months to 6 years old.
The Endless Adventures Tikes Town Playhouse delivers on its selling points–its four walls encourage four different ways to play and pretend for children, with nothing too overtly “girly” or “boyish” and something to keep any kid busy–especially if they’ve got others with whom to play in their little all-in-one-building town full of errands to do! Little Tikes includes enough on each wall to keep it interesting and novel–the supermarket comes with a little ATM, the gas station houses a tire-shaped tunnel for crawling in and out of the house through, and the sports-games wall includes a set of numbered targets for off-the-wall bouncing to change things up from simple games of super-simplified basketball–and the playhouse comes with its own little ball of an appropriate size for the sports area. The playhouse makes a fine toy for children within its recommended age range indeed, particularly as an addition to any existing wide space that sees regular romping sessions by children fond of group active play and playing pretend.
The Little Tikes Endless Adventures Tikes Town Playhouse reviews as, unfortunately, not resistant to elemental exposure; while it isn’t as if water will cause the reasonably-strong plastic playhouse will collapse or rot in the rain, water will wear out and peel the stickers and decals and fade, and so does the color of the playhouse itself–not disastrous or hazardous, of course, and fixable (if not to quite the same effect) with a coat of paint.
Naturally, pick out a kid friendly permanent paint for the purpose if you find yourself compelled to re-paint a playhouse yourself) and new stickers (make your own stickers, too, if you like!) – but blatantly and dissonantly not up to par with the rest of the house in terms of longevity.
Thankfully, when directly contacted, Little Tikes is known to be forgiving and responsive with regards to helping purchasers get ahold of replacement or extra parts for their products.
Additionally, when contrasted to its four varied walls, the interior of the playhouse comes off as a little plain. A few families have decided to “fix” that themselves via more paint, but by default, it’s lacking in color and unity (it comes with a chalkboard to consider part of the schoolhouse, for example–but, say, why couldn’t it be molded as a house to “return” to after a day of pretend school or shopping?).
The playhouse interior doesn’t even have its own floor, meaning that you’ll either need to keep it indoors or find space for it on the patio or porch–whichever you choose is up to you, as the playhouse is recommended by Little Tikes for backyard play in spite of the water-fading, one of the walls is meant to have a little ball thrown at and off of it, and the fact that the exterior is far more fun to play with than the interior means play does take up extra space, even the sports wall notwithstanding.
The assorted accessories and toys attached to and provided with the playhouse are not battery-run and therefore not noise-making, in addition. While non-ringing phones and schoolhouse bells don’t lower the value of the product, they don’t take it quite as high over the top excitement-wise as it could go!

The Little Tikes Endless Adventures Tikes Town Playhouse reviews as a product that holds up in all respects it aims to–it’s makes for versatile fun and invites a couple of different types of play all in one toy.
While it continues to be useable through and after exposure to the elements, it will come to look weathered with it, though it’s otherwise likely to last your family a while, but that’s easily fixed, and between the size of the playhouse and the interior being not quite as exciting as the exterior, it needs a bit of space to be fully-enjoyed.
Whether its four outside-wall attractions add up to justify a good price depends on the purchaser and how satisfied they are over those four walls enclosing a space that isn’t cramped or stingy but is a less-exciting and out-of-place contrast to the active and colorful outside.
