Build A Dream Playhouses Review & Giveaway

*** Giveaway Now Closed ***
Congratulations to Rochel S!


Have you heard of Build A Dream Playhouses?

The cardboard box has been an outlet for children’s creativity for years. Build a Dream Playhouses have yet to find an adult that cannot recollect a childhood memory of playing in a box.  I agree!  I have lots of memories of playing in boxes.

From traveling through time, to flying through space, to sailing the open seas, a child’s imagination allows a cardboard box to transcend all that is material.  THAT is the essence of Build a Dream Playhouses.  They supply the blank canvas for children to paint their dreams.  Cardboard allows their products to be colored, painted, decorated, and customized to please every child’s dreams.

Check out two of the many products they offer

 The Cosmic Cruiser

The Dream Machine

We have the Cosmic Cruiser.  It arrived in a large, flat box.  The children and I removed the pieces and then their masterpiece was underway.  I debated whether I should guide their coloring, markering, etc. and in the end I decided that I wanted it to be "their" creativity.  After all, that is one of the beauties of these products.

 A opening our box

 
 All the pieces spread out

 D was super excited that she was able to make it her own as well.

 C getting started

A finished view of our cruiser

 She may be little but she can do BIG things!


C chillin' in the Cruiser

The kids have been playing with their Cosmic Cruiser for months now.  They have not been the gentlest on it either and it has remained durable - a big plus in my book!

 A after 4 months of play and still having a blast.

I love the imaginary play that the Cosmic Cruiser encourages - trips to the moon, other worlds, even to Grandma and Grandpa's house!  Thank you Build A Dream Playhouses for encouraging young minds with very fun, affordable, and practical products.

I think B is headed for the moon here.

Assembly of the Cosmic Cruiser does not require any tools.  The pieces fit together with slots and tabs and directions are included.  There is also a short video that you can watch on-line for assistance.  I definitely recommend checking out the video for assembly help because he shows you how to prep the parts so they fit right together - with just the printed instructions and no knowledge of how it all should go together, it is not completely clear how to do this first step.  With the instructions and the video, assembly was actually easy.

What about E?  She went for a ride to the moon and loved it.

Now, onto the giveaway!  You can win your very own Build A Dream Playhouse!  Winner can choose either the Cosmic Cruiser or The Dream Machine.  Note: If you have already won a Build A Dream Playhouse on another giveaway please do not enter this one.  This is for those who have never won one before. 

Mandatory Entry:  Like Build A Dream Playhouses on facebook, that's it!  Let me know and please be sure and leave your email so I can contact you if you win!
