Build A Dream Playhouses Review

Build A Dream joined Facebook on September 15th, 2010. Their commitment has always been two fold. Both to the creativity of children and to the environment. Their products are 80% recycled in the beginning when manufactured and when they are totally finished, and the children no longer have any purpose for them they are 100% recyclable. They are manufactured just 38 miles from their distributor which saves a lot on fuel - not having far to ship them! As for the creativity of children these over sized shaped card board boxes are every child's dream. What child at some point hasn't pretended his cardboard box was a train or spaceship or kitchen? I remember my children wanted the biggest boxes I could get. When I did get a really big one and they decided to play together with it - Wow, what imaginations were used! With Build A Dream Play Houses children can imagine and create until their little hearts are content. They can color, use markers, paint anything they please and you as the adult allow.

My grandchildren received the Cosmic Cruiser. It was delivered very promptly. A package for them, yay! They were so excited knowing they could decorate it anyway they wanted. Mom was happy knowing she could let them color, paint, stamp, draw and use their imagination anyway they wanted and in the very end it would be recyclable. There are different stages of play with BUILD - A - DREAM . It comes in the mail that causes excitement on its own! Next they get to decide how they want it to look. The color of it, the way it is designed, stars n stripes, squares, circles, polk a dots, many different drawings or even all one color. They choose what methods they use to create their piece of art. When they have it just perfect they fold it into it's shape and play with it as the play piece it was intended to be.

There are several choices of Playhouses such as:
. Cosmic Cruiser
. Snack Shack
. Imagine Wagon
. Dream Machine

Pop N'Play Series includes:
. Pop N' Play Kitchen
. Pop N' Play Castle
