Imagination Box Company Carboard Playhouse Review and Giveaway

Have you ever bought your child what you thought was the perfect present?  And all they do is end up playing with the box?  Well, I've got great news!  Now the box can be the perfect present!!

My daughter loves playing with boxes, so I was thrilled to receive a Castle Tower from the Imagination Box Company!

As a mom, I love toys that require my children to use their imagination.  When children use their creativity and imagination, there are no limits on where they can go.

I remember using a large washing machine box for a playhouse as a child.  We had a door, that opened and closed and a couple of windows.  My sister, brother and I decorated the outside to look exactly like a house.  Flowers and grass along the bottom.  We LOVED that playhouse.

Imagination Box Co. allows children to do the same thing!  The playhouses are easy to assemble and fun to decorate.  There are several different choices: castle tower, schoolhouse, firehouse, cottage, barn and a 'create your own' that is a blank slate.

Prices range from $15 to $39.

You can decorate them with the non-toxic washable paint that come with each item or you can use crayons, markers or colored pencils.  This makes it easy for children of all ages to help in the decorating process.

I'm very impressed with how sturdy the cardboard is.  It's strong enough that the kids can really play with the structure without having to worry it will fall over or break.  I also love the fact that it can easily be folded back up and stored in a closet or under a bed if necessary.  I honestly don't see that happening anytime soon.

My daughter will be 7 years old this month and she LOVES it!  After we finished putting it together (took about 5 minutes), she immediately started coloring it.  An hour and a half later she was still hard at work and enjoying every minute of it.

She finally decided to take a break from coloring so she could play Barbies in her brand new princess castle.  She was devastated when I told her it was time for dinner.

This castle tower is a huge hit in this house.  My little princess finally has the castle she has always deserved!



***If you are ordering this for a gift, you will need to know that all products are shipped in packaging that has a picture of the item on the front.  If you need it wrapped, simply give them a call and they will gladly assist you!

I had a refrigerator box playhouse when I was a little girl! I like the castle from Imagination Box, but I think my favorite is the barn. Perfect for playing with model horses.
