Something magical happens when a child sees a beautifully made teepee or playhouse. Their eyes light up and their smiles appear! "Wow, look at that cool little house". "Wow, that's a great teepee!" You can almost see their imaginations come to life.
"Let's play house! You be the mom, I'll be the Dad!" "Let's play castle! You be the princess, I'll be the prince!" Sound familiar? If you have children, you probably hear these things all the time. These conversations are among the happiest memories I have of my kids!
Children are naturally drawn to the magical art of make believe. But, did you know it's more than just fun? Creating a make believe space, playing dress up, and reenacting stories can play key roles in child development. My playhouses, teepees, and toys encourage your child to dream and imagine and grow through play.
Nearly 10 years ago, when my nieces were young, I designed and created my popular Little Red Playhouse. Now, my beloved hobby is my full time job. I started selling on Etsy in 2008. Now, I work in my home studio every day, creating a world filled with wonder for my kids and for your kids.
The Playhouse Kid has been featured, among others, on the Today Show, Babble, Canadian Family Magazine, Simplicity Pattern Catalogs, Fashion Fusion Magazine, as well countless blogs.
