In Texas, summer comes early and it’s usually very hot and humid! W loves playing outside but as the day goes on and the temperature rises, we have to seek the comfort of our air-conditioned home. Of course, summer is all about playing and having fun whether we’re inside or outside so I recently went on a hunt for new toys that would encourage W to be creative and keep us busy this summer! When I discovered Beezer Playhouses, I knew I’d found a perfect fit!
Beezer Playhouses was founded by Ben and Julie in an effort to help children develop creative skills that would benefit them throughout life. They also wanted to have a means to give back to their community by donating playhouses to local hospitals and contributing to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. As a mother and an educator, this mission spoke deeply to me and I love that Ben and Julie are trying to make the difference in the lives of children. In addition to caring about children, Beezer Playhouses are all about the environment too! The playhouses are made from 100% recyclable materials and they are more durable than traditional cardboard playhouses so they will last longer!
We received The Cottage from Beezer Playhouses to review and when it arrived, I was amazed at the size of the box! It was big and I was beginning to wonder what I would be putting together for W! This was not going to be some ordinary playhouse! The Cottage is 42″ wide x 45″ deep x 60″ tall. I don’t know about you, but unless I break out a measuring tape, those numbers don’t mean that much to me! I didn’t think much about it as I started unpacking the box.
The Cottage includes the playhouse, BeezerBit Fasteners, convenient storage and travel case, and either the boys or girls sticker set. We had the opportunity to try both the boys and the girls sticker set as part of our review. I loved that with the exception of the “No Girls Allowed” sign, the boys sticker set was on the gender neutral side and would be a great sticker set if you were purchasing the playhouse for a set of children that included both boys and girls.
