Little Tikes Playhouse-Outdoor Playhouses

Updated on June 18, 2011

Little Tikes Endless Adventures Tikes Town Playhouse

Before deciding on which Little Tikes Playhouse to purchase for your children, or any playhouse for that matter, it's always a good idea I think to get some user opinions and reviews of the Little tikes playhouses they have bought.

I tend to ask a lot of questions about the product I'm considering buying, makes sense to find out as much information about it as possible, to minimize the risk of ending up with a lemon. Is it actually child safe? How difficult is it to assemble? Does it come with accessories? How solid is it, will it stand the test of time, and the test of kids rough play? Is it value for money? What tools do I need to assemble it? Will my kids continue to enjoy this playhouse over a long term? No sense buying if their going to lose interest quickly.

The cabinets are not really of any significant size or use, though it is a playhouse and provides endless hours of fun. A mail slot in the door is an extra feature that the kids enjoy sending their mail through, along with opening and closing the door, all the time. This is a basic playhouse but with little tikes you can't really go wrong, just choose the one with the features you and your child will prefer.

It's a versatile, fun addition to your backyard or porch, you could even set these playhouses up inside your house if you've got the room, but I think the kids would enjoy it more outdoors though. It's usually a good idea to supervise your children when outdoors playing on their playhouses, at least for a while, say, the first couple of weeks, just to see how they interact with their playhouse, so you can uncover any possible issues there may be with the product or about safety etc.

Little Tikes Cambridge Cottage

The Cambridge cottage is another wonderful and popular playhouse because it is spacious and allows for a child's growth and it looks just like a traditional cottage. With it's brick wall look, columns and of course, like some other playhouses has a dutch door. It's what's inside this little cottage that makes it unique, from a pretend fireplace, realistic kitchenette with seating area and a phone to call mom when they get hungry. Also included is a sneaky little trap door out the back too for extra fun.

Choosing to buy a Little Tikes playhouse will ensure your children have endless hours of enjoyment and physical activity, not to mention gaining social activity skills that build character and teach them life skills about relationship building as they play with their friends in their own little home in your backyard.

I recall building a cubby house for my kids when they were small, it kept them happy and active for years, until they grew out of it. Then my grandkids made use of it, until it fell apart.
