KidsCraft Playhouses Review and Giveaway-CLOSED

Kids love to play in boxes but who has boxes big enough just laying around the house. It is nice if you are in the market for a new refrigerator or washer and dryer because the kids then hit the jackpot. If you aren’t in the market for new appliances Kidscraft Playhouses are the answer with their Creation Cottage and Shuttle Imagination.

Two dads and a grandfather from Atlanta got a first hand look at how the cardboard box captures a child’s way of thinking. While packing up their financial services business, moving from one office to another, their kids tagged along. Although the fathers brought along playthings like coloring books and crayons for the 3 to 7 year olds, it was the empty boxes that captivated the youngsters. The dads saw the sparks of a business and KidsCraft Playhouses was born.

Made of 100% recycled material and made in the USA, two sturdy designs are available online and at select specialty retailers. The Shuttle Imagination, a large spaceship and the Creation Cottage, a playhouse, are ingeniously designed so there’s no need for cutting, taping or measuring. The flaps and slots are specifically designed and pre-cut for easy assembly and can withstand hours of play.

The outside of these cardboard houses are blank so that kids can use their imagination and color them how they see fit. KidsCraft will mail a free 8-pack of crayons to kids when they redeem their sales receipt online at These aren’t your ordinary crayons – they’re 100 % recycled from unwanted crayons.

When we got our Creation Cottage for review Shaun and Shae were so excited they must have asked a million times when we were going to set it up. Set up was a breeze and took no longer then thirty minutes from box to full blow house with a door, windows and a chimney. Shaun and Shae love to take blankets, pillows and stuffed animals and just sit inside of the cottage and play. The one thing to beware of is its size as it is pretty large (42”L x 39”W x 54”H) and will take up a good amount of space. Otherwise no complaints at all. Sabreena customized our cottage with an awesome paint job and it looks like a real cottage.
