The Ultimate Toddler Play Space

modern playhouse!

Your little homemaker fashions cushion forts and bedsheet tepees. But those makeshift hideaways disappear faster than you can say “cleanup.”

Give her a long-lasting room of her own with Modern Playhouse. Two San Francisco moms designed the sleek, one-room wonder as a nod to modernist architecture. Without the distraction of built-in accessories like toy phones and sinks, it’s a blank stage that a kid can turn into whatever she wants. (Hello, doctor’s office/school/Barbie repair shop.)

Though the structure sits pretty in its natural state (sustainable maple plywood with a nontoxic finish), it can be painted or embellished with wallpaper or decals. At $1,250, it’s an investment — albeit one built to grow with your child (anyone up to age 6 fits comfortably).

The company will soon launch a line of organic-fiber pillows, aprons ($45 each), and buntings ($40). So even when she stops playing house, you can continue to feather her nest.
