Ultimate Summer - Build A Dream Playhouses Review and Giveaway!

Winner Comment #18 The Riebeek Family said...If I win I would choose the snack shack

It's June and officially Summer!  Kik had her preschool graduation last week, and my husband is in the final stretch.

To kick off the Summer in style I wanted to introduce you all to Build A Dream Playhouses.

My experience with Build a dream playhouses started a couple of weeks ago when we received a large package in the mail.  My girls were so excited to open it.  But as I was afraid it would be difficult to set up I made them wait for their daddy.  My fears were for nothing.  My husband opened the box and within minutes we had a castle in our living room.


The castle literally unfolded into this shape!

Kik was so excited that she picked up her imaginary phone and made a call, "Dear person, thank you so much for sending us this in the mail.  Goodbye."  Then she hung up her imaginary phone on the castle wall, and started playing.

The girls love going out through the castle door, and peeking at me through their dungeon.


The weather has been absolutely awful the last few weeks, and the girls have only been able to play outside once the whole time.  This castle has saved us. 
 
My favorite thing about our castle, is the flat storage.  Everything collapses completely and we can store it along our playroom wall.  It doesn't take up more than a couple of inches.

As you can see from the picture above, the castle comes white and already to decorate.  The girls want to paint theirs, so our castle personalization is currently on hold till Daddy is home for good.

To Buy - The Build A Dream Playhouse Pop N Play Castle retails for $59.95, and is a great Summer Toy!  It's lightweight, stores flat, and is easily moved from the inside to outside depending on the weather.  Besides the castle, Build a Dream Playhouses have a Snack Shack that would be perfect for a Summer Neighborhood Lemonade Stand.
