Cost:

Starting from $249

Although you've probably never heard of them, Backyard Discovery has an excellent reputation as a provider of Playhouses and other outside equipment. In business for nearly 30 years, this Kansas-based retailer enjoys an "A+" grade and accreditation from the Better Business Bureau, making them a name to trust when choosing the right Playhouse for your family.

While Backyard Discovery has a more limited selection - just 13 models, 3 of which were out of stock at the time of our review - they make up for it in quality of construction. You won't find any cheap-o plastic designs here. Instead, everything they offer is sturdy, cedar wood construction made to last. On the lower end of the spectrum, you'll find the Timberlake and Columbus Playhouses, priced at $249. You'll find cute details you wouldn't find with a similarly-priced plastic set, like windows and plant holders by the front door.

The most detailed Playhouse offered by this company is the Eagles Nest Playhouse. Sold for $1999, it includes numerous options for fun, including a climbing wall and slide, crow's nest, and even a picnic table shaded by the upper level. Shipping is free on all models.

Whichever Playhouse interests you, be sure to scroll down to get all of the available information about specifications, assembly, and reviews from actual customers. (And, if the idea of assembling your Playhouse is overly daunting, Backyard Discovery does offer options for professional help. You'll find that at the top of the product page, and your price will automatically update to reflect the additional cost when you select "Include professional installation".)

One detail to keep in mind when buying your Playhouse from Backyard Discovery: all of their sets should be sealed once you've finished the build. According to the company, this protects your Playhouse from cracking and splitting - and, more importantly, it's a key component of maintaining your warranty.

The company allows you to return your Playhouse within 30 days of receipt. Keep in mind, though, that you'll be charged a restocking fee of 15%, and that you're responsible for any shipping fees to return your purchase.

We really like the responsiveness of Backyard Discovery's customer service team. We had a question about one of their playhouse products, and we were able to connect with someone via live chat almost immediately.

Backyard Discovery offers high-quality wooden Playhouses with details to delight children of all ages, and their pricing and customer service makes them a company to consider when making your purchase.

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!
