FAQs

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

We are a small, handmade sewing studio located near Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  All of our items are lovingly handmade in the USA.

DO I HAVE TO ASSEMBLE MY TEEPEE?

Teepees are shipped fully assembled and ready for play!  All teepees come with one piece poles, very important for safe, uninterrupted play. No assembly is required.  Simply slide your teepee out of the box, spread out the poles and it is ready for the first adventure.

DO YOUR FABRICS CONTAIN ANY FLAME RETARDANTS OR OTHER CHEMICAL TREATMENTS?

There are NO flame retardants or other chemical treatments used on any of our fabrics.

WILL THE XL TEEPEE WITH 8 FOOT POLES FIT IN MY HOUSE?

The XL teepee is very large, and the poles are 8 feet long.  If your house has 8 foot ceilings, the poles will touch your ceiling when the teepee is folded up.

WHAT ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT MEASUREMENTS ON A TEEPEE?

The most important teepee measurements are the BASE SIZE and the FABRIC HEIGHT in the exact center.  These measurements provide the size of the fabric portion of the teepee, which provides the area of play.  The assembled height tells you the total height of the teepee, including the poles, when it is set up for play.  

HOW BIG IS MY TEEPEE WHEN IT IS FOLDED UP FOR STORAGE?

The medium and large teepees are 5" x 5" x 6' when they are folded up tightly for storage.  The XL teepee is approximately 6" x 6" x 8' when it is folded up tightly for storage.  

DO YOU MAKE PLAYHOUSES TO FIT LARGER TABLES?

Absolutely!  Click HERE to contact us for details on making a playhouse to fit your dining room or kitchen table.  We also make large playhouses that fit on PVC frames.  Perfect for playrooms!

CAN I PERSONALIZE MY PLAYHOUSE?

Personalization is included on all playhouses!  After you make your purchase, we will contact you with more information about personalization. Please watch your email account for a message from us.  If you do not see it within 48 hours, please check your spam/junk folder, or contact us

DO YOU MAKE PLAYHOUSES IN CUSTOM COLORS?

Yes, we do!  Please contact us with special color requests before you make your purchase.  

WHY DO YOU USE FELT TO MAKE YOUR PLAYHOUSES?

We use high quality, eco friendly felt to make our playhouses because it is more durable than flimsy cotton fabric.  Your playhouse will last for years, and will never need ironing.  It can be folded up and stored, and it will look perfect the next time you bring it out for play.  Cotton playhouses wrinkle and rip too easily.

WE ARE INTERESTED IN SAFETY TOWN HOUSES.  HOW DO WE ORDER THEM?

We love working with Safety Town Programs, and have made houses for many Safety Town Programs across the country.  For more information on our Safety Town Houses, click HERE, then CONTACT US for more details.

HOW DO YOU SHIP AND HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Playhouses and medium/large teepees ship via USPS only.  XL and XXL Teepees ship via FedEx.  Shipping varies depending on product size, please see the individual product listings for information.

We do not offer signature confirmation on our products.  When your item ships, you will receive a tracking number via email so you know when to expect delivery.  

DO YOU SHIP INTERNATIONALLY?

Currently, we only ship internationally to select locations.  Please contact us for more information.    

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE MY TEEPEE OR PLAYHOUSE?

Teepees ship within 3 business days or less in most cases, and take 2-3 days to arrive to most US locations under normal circumstances.  Playhouses are custom orders that are made upon purchase and can take up to 4 weeks to complete.  If you need a playhouse quickly for a special occasion, it is best to contact us before you place your order.

 WHAT IS YOUR REFUND AND RETURN POLICY?

We want you to be completely happy with your teepee, playhouse or toy!  Because all of our products are handmade and custom, we ask that customers request a refund for non-personalized items within 24 hours of receiving the item, and ship the item back within 3 days.  Note that personalized items cannot be returned.  Digital downloads are also final sale, no refunds.  Store credit is available for customers within 30 days of receiving your purchase - as long as it has been unused.  

I'M HAVING AN ISSUE WITH MY TEEPEE OR PLAYHOUSE

Don't worry!  We stand by our products.  If you experience any sort of issue with a teepee, playhouse or toy that needs to be repaired within the first year of purchase, we will fix it for you!  Please email us with the subject line, "Repair" and a picture of the issue you are experiencing.  Depending on the issue, you may be responsible for shipping and/or repair costs.  

HOW CAN I CLEAN MY TEEPEE?

Spot washing is best, if possible!  If absolutely necessary, your teepee can be washed.  Home decor fabric teepees (stripes, dots, arrows fabrics, etc) can be washed on cold with a gentle cycle in a home wash machine.  Always lay flat to dry (NO DRYER!) and use a medium hot steam iron.  Canvas teepees must be washed in an industrial size machine at a laundromat.  Spot washing is best for canvas teepees.  

DO YOU CHARGE SALES TAX?

We charge tax to purchases made within WI and any other states that require tax be paid on online purchases.

DO YOU OFFER WHOLESALE PRICES?

We offer wholesale prices for our teepees only.  Due to the handmade nature of the teepees, it is not a traditional wholesale markdown.  Please contact us for more information about wholesale teepee orders.

CAN I CHANGE MY ORDER?

Contact The Playhouse Kid with your Order # and details of what you would like to change.  If your order has not been started, you can definitely make changes!

CAN I CANCEL MY ORDER?

We work quickly here at The Playhouse Kid, and ready to ship items often go out in the mail the same day.  If your order has been shipped, it cannot be cancelled.  If your item is made to order and has been cut, it cannot be cancelled.  Cancellation requests are only guaranteed within one hour of purchase, Central Time.
