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!
