Pop Up House Review and Competition

My boys were so surprised and delighted when hubbie took this out of the packaging and in the matter of seconds an unexciting piece of cardboard was changed into a fantastic house with unlimited possibilities.


If you do not have much space in your house you can easily fold it away and then pop it back up when it’s needed next and being made from 100% recycled cardboard it is perfect for green families.  Luckily my boys have a playroom as I have a feeling they would be very reluctant for it to be stored away!  They are having so much fun with it.  Last night they had a friend over for tea, they spent ages colouring in, playing house games (mummy, daddy and baby kitten), then I had to be the bad wolf and attempt to blow it down!  

Despite not being made of bricks it was very durable and survived my attempts to blow it down!!!  The dual layer corrugated card also seems perfectly capable to cope with the strains of the under fives, yet is still light enough to be quite portable if you need to hover the crumbs up after the latest tea party at the end of a day playing.

This morning they are back in the house, playing again which is lovely as I take so long to come round in the mornings.  They have excellent entertainment available to them; I can nurse a cup of hot tea, knowing they are meeting lots of their educational needs, being artistic and creative, learning numbers and letters, using their imagination making up games to play in and around the house.  I like the letterbox and the door you can open and close, lovely characteristics that make it feel like a proper real house for your children.  A doorbell, light, baskets of flowers and little milk bottles are all there to colour in along with lots more.


For £34.98 delivered I definitely would have been willing to make a purchase for one of my boys having a few friends over for a birthday tea.  This would have been a great way for children to spend a few hours, you could happily squeeze four of them (I fitted in with my boys and their friend anyway!) in there and space for all the toys and tea party pieces they so love!  Plus you could have plenty more children on the outside colouring in quite happily.

I have seen cheaper cardboard houses on the Internet but not ones that come with all the designs to colour and letters and numbers to help with learning.  Given these qualities I do think it is worth heading here first when contemplating buying a playhouse for your children.  They say you get what you pay for and I am a firm believer of that, the card of this house is exceptionally strong so I have a feeling the boys will cherish and enjoy this playhouse for a very long time. 

I am not the kind of person to look at some old cardboard boxes and come up with something for the boys to play with, if I did it would be covered in selotape and hanging together most unfashionably, so my advice unless your very skilled buy one of these!

You can find out more from the website and make a purchase there.  If you are keen on stocking Popuphouse yourself please get in touch with them for more information on the contact form on the website.

I have kindly been offered one as a prize, if you would like to win one then complete the rafflecopter below by 8th of June.  Your children will be so excited if you win this!

  20. I have a child with a very vivid imagination.... 
    He is a very creative child. He has a great love for making tents (clothes horses and big sheets) and we appear to have additional people living in this house... he has some "imaginary friends" too. His story's that he makes up about them are award winning at times. 

    I think my son would love this as he loves a good clubhouse, and with the ability for it to fold away would be a perfect solution in my eyes!

    ReplyDelete
  21. what a fabulous idea, i remember most xmas's when my children often played with the boxes instead of the expensive toys people had bought them, this is the idea present, am sure they would play for hours in one od these using it as a den, dolls house, army house u name it they will play it

    ReplyDelete
  22. my daughter loves her drawing and colouring, we get through loads of paper in a week.  this would be great for her to be able to colour her own little house, may keep her busy for an hour or two too

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh my goodness. This takes me right back to 1974 when my big sister had a house like this! It too was cardboard and we practically lived in it. I have a photo so will upload it if it's OK. 
    I used to make tents out of sheets and draped them over chairs and we would have picnics and pretend we were on the beach or lost in the desert. Ahhh..memories. My eldest children are grown up now, but we have Rosie who is nearly 15 months old and she already loves dressing up and pretending. She has a large playpen we have tea parties in already but I can't afford to buy a play house, and we certainly don't have the room. This would be ideal as it would simply fold away. I remember setting up sheets to make a tent about 15 years ago, the cat thought it would be a good idea to jump on top...which made the whole thing collapse. It was like a freeze frame for a second, he seemed to be suspended in mid air and then was enveloped in the sheets. Luckily we weren't inside at the time...Thank you for bringing back happy memories for me. I have posted a photo of me and my sister in her sweetie shop play house xx I am the toddler in blue xx

  27. Amy is always more interested in boxes that their content. So this would be right up her street. I can even picture her running around the front room with the box on her head, haha :) 

    ReplyDelete
  28. I didn't realise I could do it either, where it says +image I thought...I wonder...and tried and and ooooh look...
    We used to make my dad sit outside the window of the shop pretending to buy things, but he had to give us real money in exchange for pretend goods. Really looking forward to making tents and wigwams as Rosie gets older.  xx Your cooking forays sound like mine! xx

    ReplyDelete
  45. My son would love one of these because we could put it out flat in the garden and sit in the sun colouring it in all day, then I imagine that night I'd put it up in his room and he'd end up sleeping in it :) Such a fun creative toy that would create hours and hours of entertainment - I love it.

  47. Kellie Faggle McIntyre24 May 2012 at 09:20

    My little boy would adore this house, we regularly have to make him a "house". Be it from the sofa cushions or bed sheets! His pop up plastic house doesn't have the same effect?

    The beauty of this house is it can be folded and stored away-genius!! 

    Have liked on Fb and tweeted.

    Thanks for a fab comp : )

  50. when my childre were small we made a house with old sheets over a large table, it kept them occupied for hours

  51.  My daughter would go crazy for one of these! she's always pretending she's a princess in a castle and needs rescuing, I think her dreams would come true if she saw this!

    ReplyDelete
  52. My granddaughter is nearly 14 months and loves to play hiding so she would adore this house.  Also, the fact that you can colour it in is a fabulous idea, she has shown a great interest in 'drawing' so I'm sure would love to be let loose on this house!

    ReplyDelete
  53. These are just the thing for a rainy day inside and a sunny dry day outside. My boys love theirs so much but it has now seen better days. Still going strong with a bit of parcel tape though :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. My boys would love this, it would bring them so much joy to have a playhouse of their own. x

    ReplyDelete
  55. My Munchkin Jake loves nothing better than playing in his den. His den is made from a sheet draped between the settee & the chair, but he plays in there for ages. I can hear him talking away to teddy & anything else he has with him, we even had our dinner it at the weekend!
    I remember my mother getting a washing machine & we played in that box for the rest of the summer, it was everything from a house to a space ship & more.
    This is a great idea & so much better for the enviroment than plastic houses.

    In my house cardboard boxes rule! My 4 year old would love this. Firstly to hide from his big sister and secondly to have an adventure of a life time! Imaginative play and role play is fab at any age but more so at this age I feel! His friends would come and play and he would in his words 'so love it!''

    ReplyDelete
  57. The kids love playing houses, we have a wooden play house in the garden but when its raining they use old boxes to make a house.

    ReplyDelete
  58. My son loves us making a den at home and is at the age where something like this playhouse would really fire his imagination.

    ReplyDelete
  60. My little boy would love this he is always trying to make a den under the dining room table but it always falls apart!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Well, my boy goes to a children's centre whilst I'm at work and they have a little plastic house with red walls and a yellow roof. Apparently he spends all the time he can in there - running to the windows and shouting "hiya" to everyone... He also says "mine! Mine!" to anyone who tries to get in with him! Lol - so I'm sure he'll be delighted with this beauty :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. My grandaughter would love this

    ReplyDelete
  63. My youngest would love this as he is so creative, given a few pens and paper and he is happy for hours. with this he could extend this fun into the garden in the summer with his friends

    ReplyDelete
  64. What child wouldn't want to have such a fab house?  My daughter is no exception!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  67. Both my boys like "dens" and also colouring, this would just make their day!  They can design their very own house, how cool is that. An utterly simple,yet fan-dabbie-dozie idea! :)

  68. My daughter would love the house and being able to decorate it herself

    ReplyDelete
  69. My daughter loves colouring in and also loves to play house so this toy is as close to perfect you could get.

    ReplyDelete
  70. My daughter loves drawing and painting, even on the walls if I'm not careful.  I had considered buying the blackboard paint you can buy for walls but guessed it might give her carte blanche to paint and draw on all the walls in the house aaargh!  Looks like this pop up house would be the next best thing .... she would love it and so would I, magnolia walls here I come.

    ReplyDelete
  71. my little girl is very creative and loves to have tea parties and such - she would love this ;)

    ReplyDelete
  72. it's a real cardboard box - what's not to love?!

  73. In a nice way all children love cardboard boxes and mini houses, this combines the two, i know Grace would love to play in it.

    ReplyDelete
  74. oh my daughter would be super excited if she had this. Colouring and playing house two of her favourite things

  75. Every time we get anything delivered that comes in a box, it always ends up being hi-jacked by Elliott!  It becomes a car or a rocket or a house and keeps him amused for hours.  There are floods of tears when it comes to recycling day...

  77. at my son's nursery they're encouraging them to build dens and do pretend play, rather than play with their toys as part of Every Child's A Talker. This would be perfect for them to create a den

    ReplyDelete
  84. My son would love this, his dad thinks boys shouldn't play at houses but he loves the little house at his grannys. If I won it I would tell husband it was tough luck at the letters and colouring in are educational.

    ReplyDelete
  85. my son would absolutely adore this! he loves making dens out of sheets, towels and anything else he can get his hands on! it would be a house, a school, castle, boat, pirates lookout, and I'm sure he could think of many more uses. I love the fact that it can be folded away too x

    ReplyDelete
  86. My younger daughter would love a playhouse. She has a vivid imagination and loves playing this type of game

    He was positively thrilled when we treated him to a cheap tent last weekend so this would be a fantastic indoor option! 

    ReplyDelete
  101. My children are always trying to make dens out of their duvets which are always too heavy and end up collapsing or pulling over the chairs or anything else that they use to try and construct their den! Something like this would be perfect. They are prolific den-builders and very arty too, so the perfect compromise, thank you ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  102. How much better would this be.  At the moment they make a house under my dining room table.  All very good until we have to use the table for tea

    ReplyDelete
  121. My little girl would love this, we haven't got much room so the fact that it folds up is brilliant. It would make a lovely change from building tents in the front room with sheets and the clothes horse. lol. Don't think i'd see much of her if she had this to play in, she'd be in there for hours.

    ReplyDelete
  122. My girls would love this. They are drawn to cardboard boxes, hiding and houses so this ticks all boxes, scuse pun.

  125. my son would love this because ...... mummy would save opening it for a rainy day , there are several kiddies that live on our street and they always play in our garden together , i awlways feel for them on a rainy day as many of the mums are reluctant to let them play in each others houses , now i would invite them in open this up and allow my son to have hours of fun with his pals decorating his own special house !

  140. Oh my word my nephews would love this!  Its typical that every birthday and christmas they get more fun out of the boxes!  One is very creative and will love designing the box and the other is more playful and will enjoy using it!  Best of both worlds!  We made a Rocket once like this! Brilliant fun!

  142. They can decorate however they want and my 2 love colouring

    ReplyDelete
  143. I think the thing my two, (my daughter especially) would like is the fact that you can draw on it.  My son loves drawing too but knows where he can draw whereas the minute you turn your back on my 2yr old daughter she is drawing somewhere she shouldn't.  Mind you, saying that, if i told her she could draw on the house, she probably wouldn't find it as much fun, she only seems to like doing things that are naughty!

    My children age between 9 and 2 and they would adore this, I am forever finding they have pulled out all the blankets to make dens. Hubbie keeps threatening to make something I've only been waiting 8 years ;)

    My 4 year old loves to pretend he lives on his own like a big boy- I have to leave the lounge so he can pretend that he's alone- if he had one of these I could get my lounge back!

  151. Wow love this prize. My son 5 and my daughter 4 would love this a lot. My daughter loves anything that she can do role play (mums and dads) with her dolls and my son loves being creative, he will sit doing drawings and colouring in for ages, this would keep him busy and happy for the whole day he would be so happy :)

    Thank you xx

    my class would love this and I could link it in with art, science and my role play area.

  154. Because we have made our own carboard house but it was a bit of a disaster and fell apart quickly.  This one would really appeal to my son as he could decorate his house as he sees fit!

    my children would love this because they love creative activities, they would get a great sense of pride from building the house and colouring it themselves x

  159. They do love playing house- and with this they get to use their creative skills as well, without doing so on my walls.

  160. my grandkids have always preferred the cartons gifts came in, rather than the gifts themselves. I think that this is a brilliant way to harness that liking!

  161. Having a very creative child I know that this would be a huge source of fun & excitment at my home! My child would spend hours colouring & sticking various materials to it to create their very own special play house!

  162. My girls would love having tea parties with their teddies in their very own foldaway house :) @pipersky1

  167. my son would love to hide in and take his toys in and my daughter would play house - would be fab :)

  168. Because whenever they get a present they are all usually more interested in the box it came in and so this would go down a treat with my 3 :)

  169. My 2.5 year old is obsessed with play houses at the moment. I would be lovely to have one at home - especially one we can fold away at night when he's tucked up in bed and none-the-wiser!

  170. We have recently moved to a house with a bigger garden so this would be great for the kids to play in over the summer

  171. My kids love any sort of art activities - combined with a house that they can play and hide in they would be in kiddie heaven with this :)

  182. I have a little girl (4) and a little boy (2) who love playing together and have created their own fantasy world.  At the moment we create a den using two old chairs and a manky blanket so this would be fab for them!

  183. Like many small children she loves cardboard boxes. I know she'd love a box that she can colour in that looks like a house.

  184. Great idea. Ideal for packing flat and also for decorating according to your child's interests. Think we might have flowers growing (drawn) up the front as we are into gardening just now.   @01592_katie
