Let's start with the box, front and back.

Here's the front. The beat up box did not result in an additional discount.

Mom's still awake with the baby


The next morning


Here's a look at just how tight a fit the adult sized beds are.


By now you might be thinking I'm a big fan of take-alongs. Not so! But they do serve a purpose. I bought this because I have the other 3 take-alongs that share the same mold, and I wanted to round out the set.

After reviewing this set, I can only conclude that this is a family living in the 1800's. Somehow they're attired in modern clothes. They have no modern conveniences. There's a wood burning stove. The child has only 3 very basic toys. If the house had more of a cabin look, they could market this set as "Little House on the Prairie." That is, if Playmobil did that sort of thing!

if the house featured some molded-in detail instead of just stickers I'd be happier.  But I LOVE the accessories!  And thank you for your very nice review!  It actually makes me like it more than I would have without the review.  I've seen this set in stores and didn't really give it a second look because I was deterred by it's simplistic shell.  I agree, the modern clothing seems out of place compared to the house's ammenities. 
Ahoy, Pirates, Hoist the Colours!

Thanks for reviewing!! The accessories are great, i would rather place it in beginning of the 1900's but still the modern klicky's are a little out of place.
