Birthday Bash - Build a Dream Playhouses Review and Giveaway

I had come across Build a Dream Playhouses on another mommy blog not too long ago. I remember looking at her pictures and reading what she wrote and thinking to myself, wow. Some companies really still get it. They get the idea of old fashioned fun. They encourage kids to use their imaginations. They take pride in their products and it shows through what they produce.

Build a Dream Playhouses offers a fantastic variety of eco-friendly cardboard playhouses made right here in the US! They have everything from cars to a castle to a lemonade stand to a rocket ship. There is something for every interest and imagination.

Cardboard boxes were a favorite toy of mine. The bigger the better! I will bring my toys and make it into a house. Or I would sit inside and pretend it was a car or boat. I had hours of fun with something as simple as a box. I know I would have had an absolute blast with the products from Build a Dream Playhouses.

The really cool thing about these playhouses is that they are totally customizable. They come in pieces with simple directions. For older kids this can be the start of their fun by helping you put it together. Since my daughter is little my husband and I took on that task.

In a matter of maybe 15 minutes we had it all put together and looking great! I was very impressed with how well made it is and how sturdy the cardboard is. I think this will last for awhile, even with my rambunctious toddler. And once it's all put together the kids can decorate, color, paint it however they want!

We left ours blank and are going to put out markers and stickers at my daughter's party and let the kids go to town decorating. It's a fun project that they can all work on together and then play with when they are done! This can provide hours of fun and imagination!
