One Step Ahead: One Stop Shop for Christmas with Easy Payment Option


We received a lot of great items to review for Mail4Rosey for the year 2016, those that came from One Step Ahead though, were my absolute favorites. 



Some of the items took some time to assemble, but they were worth it and then some. Plus my youngest likes to help me build things, so we look at it as family time when we're putting something big together.


It's very rewarding to watch an item go from bits and pieces to something amazing, and know that you're the one who is putting the thing together.


Of course it always helps when pieces and parts are labeled correctly, and with everything we've ever received from One Step Ahead, everything was easy to identify. Right down to the doorknobs on this fun playhouse we were building back in the summer.


My son was especially into building this one because it was so big. The idea of creating something he knew he was going to have hours of fun playing in, alone and with his friends in the neighborhood, gave him an extra burst of building gusto for this project. He'd never built anything quite this extensive before, and we had a blast!


I will say though, this child of mine is amazing with following the directions and getting everything matched together as it should be (we may to thank Lego for that, I do believe). Sometimes if I find the directions confusing on a project we're doing, I'll ask him to take a look at it. The same holds true if we are dabbling wtih electronics too, but that's a different story. ;)


The little features, like the latching door (as seen above) just delighted him! I guess because they were life-sized? I dunno... it was awesome for me though to see him getting so excited over watching this project come together.


Little details like curtains,

and the mailbox with a flag you can raisse or lower, added to the charm while we were putting on the final finishing touches. 


Even the pediment and roof trim had little special touches to make them look a bit fancy. Best of all, the things you buy from One Step Ahead are sturdy and built to last. This particular play house is made of weather-resistant Sanmu wood, which is a type of Cedar. It's definitely going to last awhile.


One Step Ahead is the kind of company who makes it easy to shop online too. In addition to their fast delivery time and stellar customer service, they also offer a convenient payment option with their simple, no-hassle OSA credit plan. That is a great option to explore with holiday shopping about to hit full swing.

Like I said, we have absolutely loved every single thing we have received from One Step Ahead. They are the perfect place to go for not only holiday shopping, but any shopping you have or want to do (big or small) that has children involved. They also offer a ton of items that create practical solutions for common challenges...like upholstery protectors for car seats, allergy labels and bracelets for when the children are out of the house or away from their parents, net hammocks so stuffies have a 'home' and so so much more!

One Step Ahead is definitely a great place to get your holiday shopping done. There are only 49 days left until the big day (or 48 days, 6 hours, 58 minutes and 1 second) 
not that I'm counting or anything). :)
