Best Outdoor Playhouses 2011

The list of the best outdoor playhouses 2011 supports this fact – play houses for kids “just aint what they used to be.” These toys don’t only allow kids to have some fun outdoors, some of them are quite realistic and have more features than one might think!

For this year, here are the top 5 best selling outdoor playhouses for kids:

Step2 Naturally Playful Lookout Treehouse – While this is not the largest of the outdoor playhouses this year, it is yet quite entertaining with a couple of different themes. It is a pretend tree house that is not at all a dangerous height from the ground, with a slide on one side and stairs on the other. There is a periscope to assist with kids’ “lookout” from the treehouse. A fun choice for little ones anywhere from 18 months to 5 years old.

Step2 Neat and Tidy Cottage – Here is a playhouse that parents might like just as much as the kids – it encourages kids to learn and practice cleaning! It also has a special “stay clean” floor that drains. Also with this house comes realistic furniture and a kitchen for little ones to “cook.”

Little Tikes Endless Adventures Tikes Town – Here is my personal favorite of all the popular outdoor playhouses 2011 – it has quite a number of themes, making for practically endless play opportunity. This one house can be a grocery store, a bank, a fire house and a school house – it also has a sports wall that can bring out the “sport” in little ones.

Little Tikes Home and Garden Playhouse – Here is another interesting and fun theme in a play house for kids. It allows kids to help put it together which encourages building skills, and it also has a sort of “earthy” plant theme so that kids can play and learn about growing things. Like other houses on the list this year, there are some realistic elements including a white picket fence and even a mailbox!

Step2 Sweetheart Playhouse – Likely this pick will be the most favored by the younger ladies of the world. It has a heart theme to it, with different parts of the house in the shape of a heart. This house has an electronic phone, a clock with movable hands, a cooking stove that doubles as a grill and even a working doorbell.

There certainly are more among the best outdoor playhouses for kids this year, and each one of them is different, making each allow for unique fun and play outdoors in 2011.
