We received this Lifetime Playhouse in exchange for a fair review, but all opinions are my own.
If you are in the market for a children's playhouse, you can stop looking. You will not find a children's playhouse as durable and fun as the Lifetime Playhouse.
My mom and I assembled this playhouse in about 3.5 hours (with a break in the middle). Keep in mind, we are a little handy; but we are definitely not that experienced with building large items. I had never even used a drill before this project!
The parts came in two large boxes on a pallet, and boy were they heavy. After unpacking and sorting out all of the pieces, we were ready to begin. Combining the instruction booklet and the video on the BILT app made it easier to build than we thought it would be. All of the pieces are labeled, the holes are pre-drilled, and the correct size drill bit is even included, so you don't have to guess.
Most children's playhouses are only big enough for toddlers, so they are quickly outgrown. The Lifetime Playhouse should last your child for many years. My kids are both 6 and 10, and they have plenty of room to play with friends inside.
Even full grown adults can stand up and move around in it! There have been many days when I sit inside the house and let my daughter pretend she is cooking dinner with the play food and dishes that came with the house.
You can purchase this playhouse on Lifetime's website.
What the kids think
My kids had a great time helping to put the included stickers inside once the playhouse was assembled. They especially like the added features this house offers of having 2 windows with awnings, play food, dishes, and a working doorbell. We added our Lifetime square table and chairs to the inside to complete the look, and they have been playing in it every chance they get.
So far, it has withstood tropical storm winds and rains, as well as being moved from its original location. Some of the stickers have peeled off, but the structure is still solid.
The only thing that would make this even better would be if it came with a floor, because that would keep it cleaner inside. We are hoping to add possibly a wooden floor with turf to help offset this minor flaw.
