10 thoughts on “Would You Pay Over $1000 for This Playhouse?

  1. luz says:

    Heck no!
    And my girls wouldn’t care the least about the design, so I’ll continue to let them build their own forts/ playhouses.

  2. Samantha says:

    I would not pay $1000 for this plain play house but sure do like it

  3. Amanda says:

    It is really cute but it is too expensive. Maybe if it came with some built in benches or a pull up table or something. You just don’t get much for the money other than it being really stylish.

  4. Susan says:

    I most definitely would not pay over 1000 for this playhouse, but if I had the time I’d build it myself, or if I had the money I’d commission it for half of that price, tops! :)

  5. Debbie says:

    Way to expensive!!!!! Very nice play house but not worth the money. Kids outgrow play houses to quickly to invest that much money in one.

  6. emilie says:

    Ridiculous! I wouldn’t pay $200 for that. Why do we spend ridiculous amounts of money on “designer/stylish” toys for our kids when they’d be just as happy with a free cardboard box? I think we worry more about impressing our friends than thinking about what would actually make our kids and families happy….like turning that $1000 into $10,000 by investing in their education, or creating lasting memories by taking a family trip together, or best of all, living what we preach, that money and stuff, keeping up with the Joneses, and always hopping on the next “it” thing doesn’t make us, or our kids, any happier

    Couldn’t agree more with Emilie. There is nothing better than a decorated cardboard box! Lusting after this sort of stuff is sad.

    Minimalist playhouses are for insecure parents. Makes me think of

  8. Julie says:

    No, not worth it. I read that it is not for outdoor use–what were they thinking?

  9. Cathi says:

    Very retro and right up my husband’s alley but … this grandma wouldn’t pay that much. But … if it was perhaps two story with a hidden trap door and a bucket pulley … maybe! ;D

    Well, it is more than I would be willing to spend because of it’s simplicity. I did spend about $500 for an PBK play kitchen, refrigerator, pie cabinet, and assorted dishes and food. I felt like is was a splurge, but I live in the desert in Arizona. the temperatures in the summer months are well over a hundred degrees and we do mostly indoor play at that time. We don’t have lots of toys but what we do have gets really used. I purchased the set when my oldest daughter was two and I am happy to say that three years later it is still a favorite purchase.

    I know a lot of parents that live in extreme temperatures will do indoor play sets. I am not shocked that the playhouse is designed for indoor use. There is a huge market for indoor parties, indoor play gyms, and indoor play equipment.
