When my kids can use their imagination with play, and step into creativity...I am all for it! I was recently sent a really fun Playhouse for my kids to explore, decorate, color/marker, and make their own. (I helped a little) KidsCraft Playhouses: made from 100% recycled materials, are cardboard playhouses that fit 2-3 kids. I was sent the Shuttle Imagination to review, and my kids were thrilled! The Shuttle came in one large box, and the set up only took a little while. I like how the cardboard is sturdy...because my kids are busy, and they need something that will hold up to their test.
Here is a picture of my little guy, Cole age 1, entering the spaceship. Cole was so excited about going inside to be with his sister. He loved just going in and out.
As you can see, my daughter loved the Shuttle Imagination, too! She was so excited and could barely wait for me to put it together. She loved looking through the holes, which were designed like space shapes: circles, stars, flying rocks, etc.
Easily the Shuttle Imagination holds 2-3 kids comfortably. I love that the KidsCraft Playhouses are built for more than one child, because kids love to play together.
Peek-a-boo Madelyn! She loved looking out at her brothers. Isn't she cute?
Here is Caleb looking out, he loved this new playhouse, too. Here is his design around his face that he decorated. I think that the KidsCraft Playhouse is a great place for kids to let out their creativity and draw all over something (that is OK) and they can make it their own. I also love that this playhouse is already ready for kids to play in, you just need to assemble it for them. I have made many play houses out of card board boxes, and it is tough getting scissors through the card board, and it doesn't always look that great. However, the KidsCraft Playhouses are designed with saving the parent's time in mind (in my opinion).
The kids all had a great time coloring, thinking, drawing, and picking just the right colors for their Shuttle. It was fun to see them so hard at work.
I love Caleb's person on the side of the Shuttle. :) It is just precious to me...
I highly recommend the KidsCraft Shuttle Imagination to you. I was thrilled with this product, and my kids absolutely love it. This makes for a great indoor project when it is raining or snowing out...and my kids have so much fun in it all the time. (especially when I am making dinner).

About the creators:
Two dads and a grandfather from Atlanta got a first hand look at how the cardboard box captures a child’s way of thinking. While packing up their financial services business, moving from one office to another, their kids tagged along. Although the fathers brought along playthings like coloring books and crayons for the 3 to 7 year olds, it was the empty boxes that captivated the youngsters. The dads saw the sparks of a business and KidsCraft Playhouses was born.
