Cost:

Starting from $38.99

TopConsumerReviews.com Best-In-Class Blue Ribbon Award Wayfair continues to offer the world's best selection of Playhouses. From simple pop-up tents and cardboard castles perfect for an indoor playroom to a DIY Victorian Mansion Kit, you'll have plenty of options to choose from among this retailers inventory of more than 500 Playhouses.

Finding the right Playhouse for your situation is simple. Use the filters at the top of the page to sort all of the possibilities according to:

  • Age Group & Maximum Number of Kids (helpful if you have a lot of kids in the family or need a playhouse more suited for the toddler set)
  • Indoor/Outdoor Use
  • Material
  • Price
  • Type (Playhouse, Tepee, Tent, etc.)

Because Wayfair is such a popular store, you get the benefit of seeing plenty of customer reviews on most of the Playhouses they have in stock. For example, the Neat and Tidy Cottage by Step2 (retail price: $146.69) had more than 700 customer reviews at the time of our most recent visit to Wayfair, with an average of 4.5/5 stars. Even one of the higher-end Playhouses, the Cozy Cabin Cedar Playhouse by Outdoor Living today (retail price: $3499.99), still had 8 customer reviews with helpful information (like recommending a door latch to keep the weather out or printing out the instruction manual ahead of time).

Compared with other stores that sell Playhouses, Wayfair comes out ahead with respect to shipping costs. Because they offer free shipping on all orders over $69 with no exceptions, that includes the largest of Playhouses (which, incidentally, is the Sara's Victorian Mansion DIY Kit Playhouse, which sells for the low price of $9109.99). You could save quite a bit of money compared with freight shipping costs charged by other Playhouse stores.

Overall, Wayfair's return policy is one of the best we've ever seen. As long as your Playhouse (or other purchase) is still in its original packaging, you can return it within 30 days. Of course, with the larger models of Playhouses, you might have some hefty return shipping costs to factor in (it ships to you for free, return shipping costs are deducted from your refund). But, this doesn't apply if your Playhouse is damaged in transit: if that's the case, Wayfair covers the return costs and sends a replacement at no charge.

Wayfair gives you the world's best variety of children's Playhouses, all delivered right to your doorstep with just the click of a mouse. No matter what your budget or desired style of Playhouse, you'll get it at the right price with Wayfair. They earn our highest rating.

Home Depot

HOME DEPOT Visit Site

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.

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!
