Congratulations to the giveaway winner ~ Heather Thomas!
I think it’s every child’s dream to have the perfect playhouse … a place to escape, relax and let imaginations run wild! While my kids are generally content with a thrown together chair-and-blanket “fort,” I can only imagine how their eyes would light up if I was able to quickly put up a card table and transform it into an amazing playhouse. Since I’m no seamstress, I’ll have to rely on the talents of Julie, the owner from my new favorite Etsy shop: My First Playhouse!
Julie made her first Little Red Playhouse (which was recently featured on the Today Show) nearly 15 years ago for her nieces, and she immediately fell in love with creating these little houses. She also recognized how important imaginative play is for kids’ development.
As Julie puts it, “Children are naturally drawn to the magical art of make believe. But, did you know it’s more than just fun? Creating a make believe space, playing dress up, and reenacting stories can play key roles in child development. My playhouses and toys encourage your child to dream and imagine and grow through play.”
With a five star rating and more than 1,200 positive reviews, you can trust that Julie’s work is top quality. She traces each applique onto paper, adheres it to felt and carefully cuts it out (surprisingly her favorite part of playhouse making)! Each playhouse is made to order, and comes with a storage bag so you can fold it up and store it when not in use. She also happily accepts custom orders and color changes. These beautiful playhouses are worth every penny, and will be treasures your children will remember always!
In addition to card table playhouses, Julie offers adorable play teepees. Her Tip Top Teepee Shop is full of even more products your kids will love! You can choose from a variety of fun fabrics and tie back options, and teepees are shipped with four smoothly sanded poles for easy set up. I’m not sure if I love the playhouses or teepees more?!?
If you’ve fallen in love with these playhouses as much as I have, then you’ll be excited about a chance to win one! A very lucky ‘Or so she says …’ reader will win their choice of the Pirate Hideout Card Table Playhouse or the Double Delight Card Table Playhouse!!
