Buying Guide

If you're considering purchasing an indoor playhouse for your child and are wondering if they are safe for children of all ages, the first thing you should do is check the age recommendation with the manufacturer. Childrens indoor playhouse needs to be age-specific. This is because a feature, toy, or piece of equipment that is safe for an older child may be unsafe for a toddler.

Sharper objects, even plastic ones, for example, are safe for an older child but are a no-no for a toddler. So as long as the playhouse is built to safely accommodate a child in a certain age group, and takes all factors into consideration when placing the features and equipment, then it should be perfectly safe for your child.

Both plastic and fabric offer benefits when deciding on the material for your children’s indoor playhouse. It all comes down to your needs, the child’s activity level, and the playhouse’s location.

An indoor playhouse made of plastic is highly durable, which means your model will have a long lifespan. They are also much easier and quicker to clean, with one single wipe often removing any dirt, residue, or general play wear and tear. Most indoor plastic playhouses are also suitable for use outdoors, so you have greater versatility, allowing your children to choose where they play.

Indoor fabric playhouses are often foldable and perfect if you don’t have a lot of room in your house to leave the model up. They are also extremely convenient to set up and take down and store away when not in use. They are portable, so they can be taken anywhere and set up easily without any hassle.
