Themes in playhouses

Your child can come up with all kinds of themes and role-plays in a playhouse! Some children like to turn their house into a supermarket and pretend to sell groceries.

Others turn the house into an ice cream parlor! Maybe your child likes to drink a cup of tea there with mom or dad.

Your little one can of course also just read a book or make a puzzle. In the end, it is all about him or her choosing what to do in the house and enjoying it!

You can make it as crazy as you want, like they do in Australia at Great Home Ideas with a full Jungle Book theme!

Indoor or outdoor toy house?

There are toy houses in different shapes and sizes, for indoor and outdoor use. Inside there are the tents in the shape of a house or teepee, but also beautiful wooden construction kits so that your child can assemble the house all by himself!

For outside there are houses made of plastic and wooden, impregnated houses, some even have a slide!

Conclusion

You know your little one and of course know best where his or her interests lie.

We have certainly given you a number of ideas for toys that are suitable for use in the playhouse! We wish your sprout a lot of fun!
