An Eco-Friendly Playhouse From KidsCraft (Giveaway)!CONTESTS, REVIEWS | Nirasha Jaganath | April 9, 2010 at 9:57 pm
You know how you always want to make that little go-cart or boat or rocket out of a cardboard box that you spied in some television show. As much as the idea is endearing and filled with creativity galore, that empty box is hard to come by. I mean seriously, how often do you buy a fridge or some other big appliance. Just a few months ago I received a new dishwasher but I did not even see the box because someone installed it, and typically that that would be the case for most homes.
Sure you could buy a plastic playhouse right? I mean that would probably survive the wear and tear easily. Added to the fact that the cleanup would be a cinch, but seriously peek along your neighborhood on trash day, especially during springtime. What do you see but tossed out plastic toys? So if you want one item that won’t land in those landfills I suggest taking a look at what KidsCraft has to offer. Did I mention that these are made with 100% recycled material?
I was offered a chance to review a cottage or rocket option in the playhouses and I chose the rocket, because I really wanted the cottage. Not make sense to you? I have 2 girls so we have plenty of doll-houses, and play houses etc so I thought a rocket would be cool.
I figured it was easy to install, not because I did it but because hubby did it and normally watching his assembly of toys is a little painful but he managed without too much of a fuss. Since it is cardboard I would suggest you decide where you want it placed since it will only withstand a few assemblies.
The 3rd effect of art makes it so real and tangible. Pretend play happens to be my favorite aspect of play and these playhouses scream out “pretend play”. You will be the toast (or juice box) of the next play date if you have one of these. The good thing around 3 kids can fit inside the rocket itself. You want to remind, especially younger, kids that the drawings will be permanent so they think of their designs carefully. I loved the cutout designs but more than that the windows and doors are fully functional.
