Description: The Discovery Cottage is a Jumbo Little People playset for young children. The large, easy-to-handle accessory figures are shaped to fit in slots in the house and in the tricycle, teaching children shapes and hand-eye coordination. Designed for children ages 1 to 3 years old.

The Discovery Cottage base and accessories were slightly modified in 1989 with different colors. In 1990, the 1989 version of the #136 was introduced as "New" in the #1030 Discovery Cottage.
