Modern Playhouse Brings a Cool Factor to a Toy

wedge house by modern playhouse

I showed you cardboard play houses before, but what if you want a bigger, durable play house? This is what Modern Playhouse is doing. The concept is from Gitane Royce, a construction professional and mother to a three year-old. Made of locally-sourced recycled materials or plywood, her modern style play houses are suitable for an indoor or outdoor usage.

Two Modern Styles

Their play houses look so much more stylish than the plastic play houses you typically find at toy stores. But with a price tag starting at $1250, you expect that. The play houses are available in two designs. The square Wedge house and the Circle house, which was inspired by Scandinavian fishing cottages. I like the look of the different openings on the walls. The concept doesn’t stop with the play houses. You can decorate their play houses with furniture and pillows. Your kids could host a tea party, play board games or do their art projects sitting at a table with two detached benches.

Some assembly is required. They say online that the assembly takes about half a hour and require two persons.  All play house and furniture orders placed during their Pre-sale event (Aug. 15th to Aug. 31st) receive a 20% discount.

  3. Love these play houses..they remind me of when i was little except i used huge boxes from the beer distributor warehouse where my stepdad worked! these look a little more stable :D

  4. Wow! As a mother of a daughter I am as much obsessed as her with playhouses. Plastic ones indeed much cheaper but this one would last until her teenage years, or even more.
