I havve this and YES, both my dds have gotten MUCH play time out of this. It will hold Kit's desk and chair quite nicely. (and my dd was able to put this in herself...though I would have preferred that she ask me....)
With the desk in there, Kit could be in there as well and Ruthie could stand on the porch.
I had buyers remorse at first simply because I just don't generally spend that kind of money on anything, but when I saw the fun had with it, it was gone
