Home Depot

HOME DEPOT

Cost:

Starting from $99.99

Home Depot may not be a Playhouse specialty store, but you'll still be impressed with their selection of more than 40 models.

Are you looking for an elevated wooden playhouse with a sandbox underneath? Check out the Outdoor Living Today Sunflower model. Priced at $4277.90, this Playhouse is at the high end of Home Depot's available choices. We really appreciate how detailed the information is in the Product Overview, and we encourage you to read it carefully to find out the dimensions, assembly instructions, and any other pointers. For example, on this model, you find out that you should expect assembly time of 2 days, and that your Playhouse comes unstained so that you can create your own look.

At the other end of the budget range, Home Depot offers the PalPlay House of Fun Playhouse for just under $100. Not only is it affordable, but this playhouse also comes with free delivery or free ship-to-store for local pickup.

And, there's a nice range of Playhouses in between those two options. Most of them are the wooden house style, some with cute options like attached picnic tables or little window boxes for flowers. Most of the Playhouses have helpful customer reviews; don't forget to scroll down to the bottom of the model that interests you, to see what people have to say once they've assembled and used the Playhouse they bought.

On average, Home Depot's prices are competitive. We found a few of their Playhouses priced more affordably on another big-box home improvement retailer's website, but overall Home Depot came in at approximately the same price.

Buying your Playhouse from a big-name retailer like Home Depot has some advantages. First, their 90-day return policy (assuming you haven't opened your Playhouse) means that you can take your purchase back to any local store, saving you the return shipping costs you'd be charged by an online-only store. Also, Home Depot often offers convenient in-home installation options right on the product page, instead of referring you to a third-party company that may or may not take on the project of assembling your cottage or cabin.

Home Depot provides an attractive array of Playhouses, from simple and plastic to sturdy, wooden models made to last a long time. Priced well and with ample information to make the right purchase, these Playhouses will be a great addition to your children's fun, especially when backed by the reputation of a big name like Home Depot.

Cost:

Starting from $19.99

When it comes to Playhouses, Walmart offers about what you'd expect: nothing too expensive or fancy, a wide range of options (just over 200 in total), and the ability to pick up in store on some products.

The most affordable Playhouses sold by Walmart tend to be made of cardboard: castles, cottages, lemonade stands and so on, usually black and white so that kids can color them in. These sell for anywhere from $19.99 to over $70.

In the middle of the pack are the plastic Playhouses. Made by familiar brands like Step2 and Little Tikes, you've got cottages for $99 and up, more deluxe models with slides and sandboxes for up to $722, and several other designs.

Finally, in the wooden Playhouse inventory, you find the designs that have even more features like climbing walls and swings, priced from the mid-$200s up to a few deluxe models like the Pennfield Playhouse DIY Kit for over $3000. The higher-end Playhouses sold by Walmart tend to be offered by third-party sellers, and many of them were out of stock during our most recent shopping trip to the website.

Of course, one of the advantages of buying a Playhouse from a well-known retailer like Walmart is the ability to see some models in-store, pick up in person, or even get free delivery (either to your home or to your local brick-and-mortar location). This doesn't always apply when it comes to third-party sellers, so be sure to look for the part that says "Sold and shipped by" in the product description. While Walmart has a solid return policy that lets you bring you Playhouse back to a retail location, third-party sellers have their own requirements that usually mean you have to pay return shipping costs - and that's assuming they accept returns in the first place.

Walmart is a good choice for an average Playhouse, especially the plastic kinds that you won't find with retailers that specialize in higher-end, all-wood models. You'll know exactly what you're getting, and you'll have plenty of choices for delivery and returns if needed - and you may even be able to see the Playhouse of your choice in store before you place your order.

When choosing the right Playhouse for your favorite children, you want to be sure that you're getting a product that meets your needs. Keep a careful eye on the brand's reputation, the quality of the materials used, and any options for professional assembly when appropriate.

From budget to features, there really are endless options for Playhouses. How can you tell if a retailer is the best choice for your purchase? Here are several factors to guide your shopping decision:

  • Quality. Are the materials for the playhouse as sturdy as you would expect for the price. For example, no one would expect a cardboard Playhouse to hold up in the rain, but a Victorian mansion-style Playhouse should be well-constructed (and probably waterproof!).
  • Reputation. What do other customers have to say about the retailer and its Playhouses? Are there reviews of each available model on the site? Is the company rated by the Better Business Bureau?
  • Cost. When compared with similar styles of Playhouses, is the business competitively priced? Whether you're spending $200 or $20,000 for your Playhouse, you want it to be at the best possible price.
  • Return Policy. If something isn't quite right, can you return your Playhouse? Are there return shipping costs to consider? Is there a satisfaction guarantee in place?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Playhouses available today. We hope this information helps you find the perfect equipment for your children's best backyard adventures!
