Kids Outdoor Playhouse

A Kids outdoor playhouse has long been a favorite in the family backyard because kids love them! A kids outdoor playhouse gives your children a safe place to play, pretend, and an entertain their friends.

This picture is my little girl in her playhouse.  Ours was a hand-me-down from her cousins, who outgrew it before they wore it out.  ( It was handed down to them too from a neighbor who also outgrew it).

It’s probably at least 15 years old, and while the sun here in South Carolina has faded the colors somewhat, this Little Tikes Playhouse has withstood many summers and even more kids playing in and even on it.  My nephew used to like to play Superman and jump off the roof.

When I was a kid, I so wanted that play house in the yard.  My friends down the street had one, and we would play house, or school or just sit inside and have tea parties.  Then the boys would show up and the outdoor playhouse would transform into a fort, and we would play so many games of hide and seek, cowboys and indians and whatever else our imaginations could dream up.

It was a haven in the backyard. A place to call our own, and our parents knew where to find us. It offered shade, a little privacy for those secret talks and conspiring a surprise attack. I can not imagine what my childhood would have missed out on, and was absolutely certain my kids had to have one too.

Wooden Playhouse Options

While I love our plastic style playhouse, it was given to us and we couldn’t argue with the price.  But I’ve always loved the wooden playhouse designs and if I had to buy one today, I would choose the wooden playhouse. It just seems to have so much more charm and character than these plastic ones.

The wooden playhouse will probably take a bit more maintenance, possibly sealing the wood with a good water sealer or maybe even having to paint it once in a while.  (What FUN for the kids to help!) But with wood designs, there is always the option of adding on, modifying a plan or adding some other details that you really can’t do with plastic the pre-molded styles of kids outdoor playhouse.
