Kids' Playhouses

A café for a budding culinary genius. A castle for brave knights and beautiful princesses. A fort for adventurous explorers. The sky’s the limit when it comes to your child’s imagination, so why not complement their energetic adventures with an indoor or outdoor playhouse?

What styles of playhouses are there?


You can find a kids’ playhouse in almost any style and size. Some resemble hobbit holes, made famous by J. R. R. Tolkien’s novels, while others copy the likeness of a French café or Victorian mansion. When choosing your child’s playhouse, be sure you have enough space to accommodate it. If you’re set on an outdoor playhouse, you should check local laws and regulations to find out if you’ll need a permit or if your playhouse must meet certain safety requirements.

Designs, however, are up to you — or should we say your children. If your children are still small, a more temporary structure, such as a cardboard playhouse or a pop-up fabric design, may be best since they may quickly outgrow it. If they’re older, more permanent structures such as a wooden playhouse or one made from plastic can provide hours and even years of fun.

What’s the best material for my playhouse?


Typically you’ll find dozens of playhouses in fabric, plastic or wood:
• Fabric: Resembling a tent, fabric playhouses are easy to setup and are best suited for indoor use. Some may come with additional attachments, like tubes. You may also find fabric playhouses that are intricately detailed and resemble houses.
• Plastic: This durable material helps your outdoor playhouse withstand harsh weather. They are also splinter-free and come in a wide range of designs and sizes, making them the go-to choice for many families.
• Wood: A wooden playhouse is almost like a permanent structure. They tend to be highly durable and weatherproof, though they may require paint touch-ups and sanding. They range in size from small clubhouses to child-size houses, meaning you can make them as simple or elaborate as you like.
