Princess castles, pink windows, flower pots, café-style canopies, porch… Who didn’t have or dreamed of having a dreamy playhouse? Playhouses are the ultimate gift for kids of any age! A playhouse for girls inspires creativity, independence, organization skills, and imagination! Also, it is as great for group activities as it is for solo play. It’s the type of gift that keeps on giving for years because from toddler to older age, kids profit from being able to develop their individuality. For this post, I’m trying to cover all bases on playhouses for girls. I’m comparing materials for outdoor playhouses and featuring parent’s favorite playhouses for toddlers and kids according to hundreds of reviews. Also, you’ll find the cutest makeover inspiration plus tips from skillful Instagram moms, and some cute girly playhouse accessories, toys, organization racks to make every dream come true!


The Best Playhouse for Your Big or Little Girl

There are reliable brands on the market, manufacturing playhouses for decades and we are sticking with them, after all, you want your kid to be able to play in safety. That’s why we only feature playhouses from well-known manufacturers and trusted retailers, to make sure you’ll be buying something legit and safe. Some playhouses, however, are amongst parents’ favorites of all times, whether it’s for the design, the colors, the features, So these are the playhouses for girls you’ll find on this post.

But, the best playhouse for your family is the one that satisfies your preferences, needs, space, and lifestyle. When you are looking for a playhouse, think about the following questions. Is the playhouse for little toddler girls or big kids? Will it stay indoor, outdoors or will it move year-round? Do you prefer plastic or wood? What’s the budget? How much space do you have available? Do you want a pink playhouse for girls, a customized playhouse for girls, or a gender-neutral one? Are you in the mood for a makeover or please no!? And last, but definitely not least: what’s your willingness to assemble a playhouse?

My most important tip: if this is supposed to be a Christmas gift, buy it as early as possible to avoid frustrations. Not that the companies are not reliable, but the weeks before Christmas are more prone to mishappenings. The volume of requests gets way higher, of course, as well as the volume of deliveries. Being December, the weather can play against your delivery ETA and that’s something no company can control.

Plastic or Wood Playhouse for Outside?

In general, if a playhouse can be kept outside, it can also be kept indoors. The opposite, of course, is not true. If you live in an area with lots of rain, snow, or wind and you want a playhouse that survives outdoor with dignity for years, go for high-quality heavier wood playhouses. First, because they are sturdier. Second, because properly-treated wood will endure longer under the weather. And that’s exactly why they are more expensive.

But it doesn’t mean you can’t have a plastic playhouse for girls outdoors. The plastic playhouses in this post have positive reviews from parents that keep them outdoors. Of course, it will depend on how demanding you are. I love this girly playhouse revamped by @lovenikkile. As we can imply from the seasonal decor, this beauty is being kept outside year-round!

Indoor & Outdoor Playhouses For Toddlers Girls

Here’s a selection of the best small playhouses for girls. First, they are all appropriate for indoors and outdoors. Second, they made this list because they have the best ratings on Walmart, Target, Wayfair, and HomeDepot websites and they have typical girly features like pink, purple, are a Castle, have flower pots, cafe-style canopies. Overall, they are great playhouses for boys as well, regardless of the color. Toddlers will play just fine in a small playhouse but it doesn’t mean older kids can’t play in these playhouses too, in case you prefer a small one.

Little Tikes Cape Cottage Pink Playhouse for Girls

Shop at:

This is a great non-wood option if you want a pink girly playhouse and you are not interested in makeovers! Also, for being relatively lightweight (30lbs), it can be a good choice if you plan to relocate it year-round. This pink playhouse does not have a kitchen and despite being recommended for kids over 2 years old, I read a lot of parents’ reviews saying that 18 months babies have a blast in it! Little Tikes also have super cute LOL playhouses, in case your little one is a fan, and this same cottage model in ivory with blue windows, door, and roof!

What parents reviews say:

“Christmas gift for my granddaughter. She loves playing in it. She’s 6 and the house is tall enough for her to stand up in it. It is the typical well constructed trusted Little Tikes brand meaning it is exceptionally made. There are no sharp edges so it’s very kid-friendly. It’s a pretty bold and vibrant pink. Everything works as it should meaning windows and door swings effortlessly. My husband and son worked together to assemble it…”Review from Walmart.com

Overall this playhouse has 4.3/5 stars on the Little Tikes website and 4.6/5 stars on Walmart (where it has over 600 reviews!). What unsatisfied parents didn’t like? Some pointed out an overall quality decrease when compared to products bought years before.

Disney Minnie Mouse Playhouse for Girls by Delta Children

Playhouse Material: Plastic | Dimensions: 54 x 35 x 52.9 | NO Kitchen

Shop at:

Everything about this playhouse is adorable and playful for a toddler! The bid ears on the roof, the bright colors, the details on the windows. This Minnie playhouse is a winner if you and your baby girl are Disney fans! My 2-year-old niece saw it on my screen and went crazy because she loves Miss Mouse! Also, it’s non-toxic and odorless for indoor use, weather, and fade-resistant for outdoor use. And last, but not least, it’s big enough for a few kids to play together.

On the assembly side, the Minnie Playhouse is probably one of the easiest. You snap in the sides together, like a big puzzle.

What parents reviews say:

“This Minnie Mouse playhouse is absolutely amazing!! My daughter loves it and literally acts as if this is her own little house! It was so super easy to assemble and even better that my daughter is absolutely in love with it! We use it indoor and outdoor. Thank you Delta!!” Reviewed by Hmonroe, Nov2020. (Review from walmart.com)

Overall this playhouse has 4.5/5 stars on the Walmart website. The most negative review is from a person complaining that the playhouse didn’t have screws, and it ruined her daughter’s birthday. Have in mind that it’s a snap-in build system that doesn’t use screws. I felt so sorry for them.

This cute playhouse has been on the market for over 10 years! The super cute cottage is available in 3 different colors, which is also great if you’re not into makeovers. The Neat & Tidy Cottage is a small playhouse (the interior is 45 inches high) that comes with a built-in kitchen and parents say it’s easy to carry it around!

What parents reviews say:

“After searching high and low for an affordable playhouse, we stumbled upon this one. For the price, I think we got an excellent deal. It was easy to put together and is the perfect size for what we needed! Our 2 year old loves it! We can’t keep her out! Perfect playhouse indeed!!.”Reviewed by Mom4evr, Jun 2009. (Review from walmart.com)

Overall this playhouse has 4.3/5 stars on the 2Step website and 4.6/5 on Walmart (where it has over 1000 reviews!). The most negative reviews are due to some misunderstanding about the number of molded seats (it only has 1), the size (some people expected it to be bigger), missing parts, and the fact that the built-in floor has no drain.

Shop at:

Tiny but mighty! This cute pink castle playhouse with a purple working door and flag turrets is the girly twist on any medieval playtime! This castle is weather- and fade-resistant and is a great option if you want a lightweight playhouse that you can move indoors for fall/winter and outdoors for spring/summer. And because it’s built for toddlers, the plastic edges are round. Oh, it features a small built-in bench inside.

On a very personal note and being very honest, I think this playhouse is a bit overpriced compared to the Little Tikes and the 2Step that are also pink plastic. Of course, this one is a castle and much more elaborate, so you pay for the fairytale!

What parents reviews say:

“Wonderful! Only took 30 minutes to assemble. My 2 Year old grandbaby loves it.” Reviewed by Vickie, Jul 2020. (Review from target.com)

This playhouse is made of wood with a plastic roof and no kitchen, making it more affordable than most wood playhouses. If you like this design, but prefer it 100% wood, the Hillcrest Outdoor Playhouse on Home Depot might be the one for you. From the reviews I’ve read, this playhouse is easy to assemble (few exceptions on it) and the real doorbell steals the show among the kids! Overall, parents were very satisfied with how the kids were entertained by the playhouse. Major win!

What parents reviews say:

“We have another plastic playhouse that my child hasn’t used since we’ve gotten this. We’ll be getting rid of the plastic eyesore now that we have this lovely wooden playhouse she loves. When she wants to play she asks to go to “her house.” She’s only two, so she loves repetitive tasks like opening and closing the door, ringing the doorbell, and looking for mail in the mailbox. The chalkboard is also a big hit for scribbling her menu on it. She also likes to serve “salads” (weeds on a plate) to us through the serving window. Love this playhouse!”Reviewed by Alyssa, Jun 2009. (Review from kidskraft.com)

“Love it! The assembly instructions seem daunting, however, I had it all put together before my husband got home from work! The children love the working doorbell, phone, and play clocks in the house!”Reviewed by Jessica, Apr 2020. (Review from walmart.com)

Outdoor Playhouses for Kids Girls

Some parents feel the need to upgrade the toddler playhouse once the kids have outgrown them. The larger real state comes with a price, of course. Older kids tend to be more careful and less messy and I didn’t find raving reviews on plastic playhouses that were high or fun enough for bigger kids.

Calling all the little princesses grandparents with lots of space and spoiling budget! This big candy color castle is a playhouse extravaganza that will have girls beaming with joy for a long time. It’s definitely on the high-ticket end, and you can definitely buy a bigger wood playhouse for this price. So of course, you’ll be paying for the detailed turrets and flags, cute windows, and the beauty of a castle fantasy and it’s totally worth it if that’s what you want!

This one is recommended for kids older than 3 years old because it has choking hazards from small parts. and I mean it about the large space. This playhouse has 98.5″ in height on the tallest tower.

What parents reviews say:

“This castle is huge! I’m 5’7 and stand up in it. It took a little bit of time to put it together but I’m very particular when putting these together. Haha. Two people and you should have it together within 2 hours. The color on this castle is really nice and hold up well in the weather/sun. 1st picture is when we got it 2 years ago.

I won’t write Frozen’s theme song chorus here because I know you’ve had enough and it will stay in your head forever. But this Arendelle Frozen Castle is a no-brainer if you’re looking for the perfect gift for a little Elsa and Anna fan. This Castle is so whimsical and dreamy. The detailed windows, the “towers”, the regal double door. I love that, despite being a Castle, it has a café-style canopy so kids can let the creativity flow. On the KidKraft website, the age recommendation is above 3 years old, but from the reviews, younger toddlers are having a blast!

What parents reviews say:

Overall this playhouse has 4/5 stars on the KidKraft website and 4.6/5 on Wayfair (where it has over 100 reviews).

For your little fairytale princess and prince, this playhouse has the right cabin in the woods vibe. It comes with a little stovetop, some utensils, the planter boxes, a movable bench, and a play phone! Also, the ceiling is pretty high, around 6 feet tall! The EZ Kraft Assembly design is supposed to make the love work easier. But reading the parent’s reviews, we can say it really depends on the grown-up skills! Some people took an entire weekend, whereas some people did it in 3.5 hours!

What parents say:

“This playhouse is amazing for this price! it is rather large, perhaps 6 feet tall. My husband and myself assembled this in about 3.5 hours. We are keeping this indoors since we have a large play area. This is perfectly fine to keep outdoors as well. The majority of the structure is wood. It is very sturdy.

The outside bench articulates and turns into a countertop, perfect to take customers’ orders. It also comes with a mesh storage bag, so all the basics are covered. From the reviews I read, parents put in 8 hours of work to fully assemble this playhouse.

What parents reviews say:

“Just finished our playhouse and couldn’t be happier. The quality of the house is solid, especially for the price. Took us a little longer to put it together as we did not use the app and I destroyed the first T nut (be careful) trying to hammer it into the wood. The house looks great. It’s a really nice addition to our yard. The aesthetic is very easy on the eyes. It has some really cool features like the toy bin and the bench/table combo. The bottom line opinion belongs to our nearly 4-year-old daughter and she loves it. She has already taken chalk to the house and added toys to her bin. We are really glad we chose this house.”.

All the parts and pieces were included, no damage to any of the pieces. The hardest and longest part was leveling the ground where it was going. I recommend you do this while waiting for your order to arrive. This cottage has brought so many smiles, from them realizing what we were building, to putting their kitchen and grocery store toys in there for them to play with. We purchased the paint, however, it’s just so cute as is that we haven’t brought ourselves to painting it yet.

Little Cottage Playhouse is an Amish craftsmanship company and their luxury playhouses are made in the USA. They have several wonderful playhouses for girls and boys, but the Victorian playhouse is a hit! You can choose from 5 different sizes, as well as add a loft and the deck. Paint, shingles, and drip edges are not included. If you get it from Wayfair you can include expert assembly. But according to the reviews, the panelized kit really comes pre-assembled and primed, making it easy to put together. I still can’t get over the gingerbread trim and the heart-shaped window.

“We received this and built it in about 10 hrs (not including shingles and Paint). It came on 2 pallets, one contained the house, and the second all of the additional add ons. Once we built the main part of the playhouse we waited until after we painted it to add the trim, shudders, flower boxes, deck, and rail. The kids love it, and it went together pretty easily.

Big Playhouse Mansions for Girls

This is playhouse madness. There is a couple of reliable brands building big playhouses. All the brands in this post are considered reliable and are on the market for years. Even more so when you are shopping for a two-story playhouse, for example. You can have them as they are from the catalog, or you can customize them. There is a lot of options and here are the most famous, like Stormi’s playhouse, and wished for by moms kids.

I’m in shock with these mansions. This playhouse is available in 2 different sizes and comes with a loft. The interior height is 102″ from bottom to top, so, lots of rooms for wall art to complement the decor. Like their other playhouses, this one also comes in panelized kits, ready for an easy assembly, since everything is precut and labeled. Shingles, drip edges, and paint are not included! So, you will not get a pink one like the one from the picture! Right now as I write this post (March 2021), this playhouse has 22% off on Wayfair and it’s cheaper than on the Little Cottage Co. website. The prices on this page are full, without the discount, so it’s worth it to take a look at Wayfair.

I had no idea such playhouses existed, so forgive me if my jaw is dropping. Like their other playhouses, this one also comes in panelized kits, ready for an easy assembly. Shingles, drip edges, and paint are not included! The website doesn’t bring more details on the materials used for this specific playhouse or if it comes only with one loft or two. From the interior pictures, it seems to have one loft, but you better call the company and ask all the questions! Oh, it has 22 windows with safety glass and screens. Yes. 22 windows.

The Cutest Makeover Ideas From Instagram For Girls Playhouse

Little Tikes Cape Cottage Pink Playhouse for Girls Revamp Ideas

If you are not in the mood for a bright pink playhouse, you can do something like @amandabathman. She went to town and delivered some serious spray paint magic! As if it wasn’t enough, she added flower boxes under the side windows, installed an elevated house number and an outdoor lantern!

P.S: West Elm has a Customizable Vinyl Tile Mat in several colors and 2 different sizes!

← Plastic adherent spray paint and hours of patience is what you need. The most used spray paint by moms is the Rust-Oleum that bonds to plastic. The most useful tip: to cover dark surfaces with light colors, you’ll need a few coats of sprays. Wait 24 hours between coats to make sure it will stick to the plastic! Once the playhouse is assembled, install the planter boxes and fixtures! If you’re sticking to faux plants, you don’t need a real plant box if you don’t want to, because watering won’t happen. Any small box will do the trick. And since your hands are going to be on the spray paint already…

Makeover tips for Step2 Neat & Tidy Cottage

Small playhouses for toddlers don’t ask for a lot of interior decor and furniture. First, because you may want to maximize de play area. Second, because small kids are still prone to stuff things in their mouth, noses, and ears, so the less stuff the better.

@oliveira_farmhouse

← You know how light and Instagram filters change colors in pictures. But it seems to me, that the only area that didn’t get any paint was the grey bottom. @oliveira_farmhouse doesn’t say which color she used and I won’t dare a guess, but you get the idea! The self-adhesive vinyl numbers are a cheaper and more practical solution than elevated numbers. Add a cute doormat, some greenery, and flowers and the delicate playhouse is ready!

Words from the heart

Of course, kids will take the lead from their caregivers and parents’ guidance and grow from it. More than a house, a playhouse for girls can be the scenery for anything you wanna inspire your daughter to be!

If you are raising a princess, it’s the perfect castle; if you are raising a warrior-queen, it’s an amazing fort. Do you want to inspire your daughter to be a pristine housekeeper and mom? Should it have a kitchen, so she can learn how to feed herself or run her own cafe? Maybe her playhouse can be a medical office or an architecture empire? The sky is the limit and everybody wins when there are more possibilities than limitations!
