Playhouses come in all shapes, sizes and colours so it is no surprise the cost can vary greatly. You don't have to spend a fortune to inspire little imaginations. Some of the most appealing playhouses are very inexpensive and will entertain your children for hours. For more economical choices you may want to consider indoor playhouses made of less costly materials such as cardboard or fabric. In addition to traditional wooden playhouses, plastic playhouses are a good choice for indoor or outdoor play.
