Description: The Precious Places® Baby's Nursery Cottage is a 2-story home with a purple roof, a key-activated light, a mailbox, carport, patio area, and living room and nursery furniture to put in the house. The Precious Places® magnetic key can be used both to turn on the light, open a lock on the lower-level back wall to lay the wall down, and to move the figures around in the house or on the accessory sidewalks. The house has a gap under both floors to allows the key to move under it. The figures and some of the accessories have a magnet on the bottom that follows the magnet in the key when the key moves under the floor, this makes the figure appear to "come alive" and move by itself. Designed for children ages 5 years and older. The light requires two AA-size batteries.
