As a parent of two busy boys, I find myself drawn to toys that are interactive. I have watched my children spend hours playing make-believe in outdoor playhouses at friends homes, and this imaginative play is to me, one of the most important activities they can be taking part in at their age.
I stumbled on an amazing product on Etsy, where treasures are frequently found, in the shop of Miss Pretty Pretty. Miss Pretty Pretty is run by wife, mother, and an avid sewer named Julie who created a line of Playhouses that fit over a standard sized card table.
These innovative playhouses come in a variety of styles including a library, pirate hideout, construction site, and cupcakery. Each one is handmade, put together piece by piece, using felt derived from 100% post consumer plastic bottles. No vinyl or glue is used in the production.
There are many variations and styles available, all customizable in one way or another. It is so nice to see a product made with so much attention to detail and clearly lots of love put in. Visit Miss Pretty Pretty on Etsy for a complete listing of the playhouses available.
