Build a Dream Playhouses

This is probably the coolest thing I have ever seen made of cardboard. I am beyond impressed with Build a Dream Playhouses. We received this big flat cardboard box and within about 2 minutes it was a full on play kitchen. I honestly put off opening the box for a little while because I anticipated lots of bending, folding, and cramming tiny tabs into little holes. There was none of that. It was the easiest thing I have ever assembled. You just pull it open and pull down the fridge shelves and counter tops. Voila - your work is over. We have not painted ours yet but that is because it's been too rainy to go outside and paint lately. I couldn't wait any longer to share this cool company with you - so forgive the lack of color on our kitchen (we will get to that as soon as the weather allows).


Pretty much the instant we had this baby together my sons had brought out all their play kitchen supplies. They were having quite the time playing in this instant kitchen. I am impressed with how durable it is - my 2 year old hasn't destroyed it yet. I also think it is very cool how functional it is - they cabinet doors actually open to put their supplies in and the fridge also opens to allow food storage. They can bang on the stove top with their pans and it holds strong. I've seen cardboard playhouses before but never a kitchen, especially one with this attention to detail.

The amount of work (zero) needed to create a cool play space for your little one is really appreciated by me. This is something that would make a unforgettable gift and I know I will be ordering another option from their selection when my kid's birthdays roll around this year. If a play kitchen is not your child's thing - they also offer a snack shack, cosmic cruiser, a wagon (looks like an ice cream truck to me), a castle, and a dream machine (a cool car). There is definitely something to please pretty much any little one.

I actually had to struggle to get my son to attend school after we first put the Pop N'Play Kitchen together. I know you are thinking you have to struggle to get your kid to school everyday but my oldest son never complains about going to school. He just kept saying - "Jack is so lucky, he gets to stay home and play with the kitchen all day. I wish I could stay home and play too". I'm sure at some point the thrill may wear off but at least I didn't invest $200 into a big plastic kitchen that is now taking over our home (this is certainly more eco-friendly too - seeing as how it was made from 80% recycled products and now it is 100% recyclable). You can actually fold this kitchen back up if you want to for easy completely flat storage. I'm pretty thankful to find a toy that gives me that option - even more impressive is to have that option in a toy so big that it is taller than both of your children.
Simply Stated: I loved it's limitless creative options, especially that it could be decorated by your children + the ability to fold flat is truly a gift. My only drawback was the   price - it is cardboard and at up to $70 for some options it can get a little steep for this mom.

The Pop N' Play Castle would be the choice for my children and their
playmates! A lot of their pretend play centers around Kings, Queens,
Knights, etc.

I know my kids would love the car one. Recently at Toys R Us they were playing in the big, plastic cars and it took 20 min to pull them away. At least with a cardboard car they can play on their own in the backyard!
