The Promise: Readers could live like Daniel Boone in this huge playhouse that was 3 ft. high, 9 ft. square and 23 cubic feet. It was said to fit up to two to three kids at a time and could be built without tools, while being both fireproof and waterproof. Plus, you could build it in all weather, either outdoors or indoors. If you were a girl, and weren't enough of a tomboy to appreciate a miniature log cabin, there was a more traditional playhouse also available.
The Truth: The cabin was just a tightly folded vinyl sheet with a log cabin design painted on. The only time it ever took the loose shape of a cabin was when it was draped over a table or some other type of standing furniture. Hardly, the rustic hideaway that was advertised. To make matters worse, it was impossible to spend much type under the vinyl sheet, thanks to the plastic-y fumes that permeated off of it.
