Modern outdoor playhouse for kids - Kyoto

The climber
With what looks like odd shaped windows throughout, this uber-modern playhouse is called Kyoto and allows kids to release some of that pent-up energy that seems to “plague” most households.

By allowing them to climb around or play house when the mood strikes, this playhouse is ideal for younger children.

Modern outdoor playhouse for kids - Hobikken

The wood playhouse
I’ll be honest with you; if I could build a home today, it would likely be a larger version of this one, which is called Hobikken.

Sleek lines, wood exterior, rich finish, this is exactly what I would want in a home and, chances are, if this was sitting in my backyard, I would be cold chillin’ in it on a daily basis.

    I bought my kids a very plain playhouse and they love it! These are stunning and may have resulted in more playtime and perhaps more sophisticated playtime, but I think any old playhouse will do. Thanks for the post!

    Where do we get prices from for these kids playhouses?

    These playhouses are amazing! When I was a kid, we were lucky enough to get a box to play with, let alone have a mini-home of our own.
