We are an “eco-bio” online store, meaning we have a special attention for the environment as well as for materials used. Extending this concept to toys, and moving away from the huge selection of plastic toys, we can only recommend this: cardboard playhouses!
All children love having a small space of their own, where they can emulate adults (and also hide from them), and this is an easy way to give them one. Plus: when they grow up and don’t want to play with this any more, you can dispose of it without too much damage for the environment. Of couse, if you can give it away to someone who will like it, even better!

The playhouse is particularly sturdy because of the special roof construction, the double-sided walls and the 4 corner pillars.
