Build A Dream Playhouses review and giveaway

Can you remember how much fun we used to have playing outside with only our imagination, what we found out in the yard and if we were lucky a cardboard box? Our imaginations would run wild and that box may be our castle, a racecar, or even a submarine and we would spend hours playing til mom called us for lunch or the street lights came on and the lightning bugs showed up which was our sign that the day of play was over. This same sort of fun can still be had with the Build A Dream playhouses.

Build a Dream Playhouses was founded by a father who wanted to make the future of his city of Cleveland, the state of Ohio and his childs imagination brighter. The goal is to deliver safe, affordable, eco friendly products that stimulate and encourage the imagination of children. The imagination of a child is very important to their developing minds. The Build A Dream Playhouse supplies the child with a blank canvas for children to paint their dreams. The way that the Build A Dream Playhouse products are created where each child can use their personalities to personalize their playhouse. The playhouses are made up of corrugated cardboard that allows them to be colored, painted, decorated, and customized to please every child's dreams and are durable to last through play as well. They go through safety test and pass those that are handed down by the CPSIA. The playhouses are made up of 80% of recyclable goods and are 100% recyclable.

We were able to review the Pop N Play castle. Many of my readers know that my grandchildren are known on my blog as the Princess and the Prince. Every little Prince and Princess needs a castle to play in. Oh the good times that are ahead for them. I believe that my daughter will have as much fun as my grand-kids both sharing in the decorating of the castle as well as watching their imagination at work. So much fun.

  4. When I was little I imagined myself to be stranded on a raft (made from lots of pillows on the floor) and I was drifting thru the ocean with all my stuffed animals on board with me as we searched for land! :)

  7. When I was child, I loved the outdoors so I always imagined that I was some sort of wildlife explorer and would make up adventures with whatever I could find in the woods.

  27. When I was little I used to pretend I was a teacher and I was the oldest so my sibs were my students. We used to learn all kinds of things and I always had a craft or imagination time where we made tents, forts, anything we could with cardboard boxes and scrap materials.
