This unique playhouse from Guidecraft is in a class of it's own. The beauty of this solid wood playhouse is that it offers your kids the ability to use their imaginations and construct it on their own! The wooden planks slide together like pieces of a puzzle and can be put together in different ways to conjure up puppet theatres, little cabins, a hideaway or anything that catches their fancy!

Little Tikes
This cute 'n colorful playhouse from Little Tikes is a nice addition to your home and backyard. What primarily appeals to me about this playhouse is the price!

The Cozy Cottage playhouse is made of heavy duty vinyl, includes soft air-filled Little Tikes balls and measures approximately 45 x 32 x 46.
