Giveaway: Card Table Playhouse from Miss Pretty Pretty

Welcome to Simple Living Media’s Home for the Holidays! We’ve got 25 giveaways across the entire network this week to give you plenty of chances to win a great gift, just in time for the holidays.

This giveaway has ended.  Check back on Saturday, December 4 for the winner!

Today I’m giving away a Card Table Playhouse made with eco-friendly felt from Miss Pretty Pretty! These charming playhouses, the original Etsy Card Table Playhouses, are handmade with great attention to detail by shop owner Julie.

My kids have the Animal Sanctuary playhouse and have been happily playing with it on a daily basis. We’ve had a good time discovering the different animals and the kids love the movable pieces that make the playhouse interactive.

As a parent, I love that this playhouse is something that all of my kids, from my nine year old to my two year old, are enjoying and playing with together.  I think playhouses have appeal for kids of all ages.

With sturdy seams, careful stitching, and so many details, it is obvious to me that Julie puts a great deal of love and care into the creation of these playhouses. It fits very easily over our standard sized card table, magically converting it into a playhouse!

Learn more about these charming playhouses and how to win one of your very own!

As I said, from the first moments after I opened the package, my kids have been playing with their playhouse. Constructed to fit over your card table like a slip cover, it was an almost instant transformation from ordinary card table to the Fleck children’s personal animal sanctuary.

And, since it fits a standard sized card table, we were able to take it off of the table at our house, pack it up (it doesn’t take up any more room than a blanket or an afghan when folded) and take it to Grandma’s house where we transformed her card table into a playhouse!

I also appreciate that, because it is so easy to set up and take down, the play house doesn’t have to be a permanent fixture in our playroom and takes up minimal space when it is being stored.

The animal sanctuary isn’t the only style that Julie offers. She has a wide range of styles and types of custom playhouses in her shop, including:

We are in love with our playhouse and I really think this is a unique, creative, and fun gift idea for kids.

In the words of Jillian, my nine year old, “This playhouse is pretty cool.  I like the apples you can pick from the tree and all the different types of animals hiding and playing.”

In addition to playhouses, Miss Pretty Pretty also offers patterns – including a 40+ page tutorial teaching you how to sew your own card table playhouse – as well as toys, playmats, and clothes line tents.

One Simple Kids reader will win a custom order card table playhouse of their choice from Miss Pretty Pretty! (No changes can be made to the original design, only color changes will be accepted.)

  9. These are so amazing and she has so many and they’re all so cute. I know my girls would like one of the girly ones but I don’t think my son will be too into that later on. I think they would have tons of fun with the pizza parlor or farm stand.

  10. The CupCakery playhouse! I would play with that one myself!

  11. If I win, I’ll give it to my niece. She loves trains, so I think that she’d like the train station!

  12. I think either Lavendar Lane or Double Delight, although I know my daughter would love any of these beautiful designs!

  23. The fairies’ tea party would be a big hit!

  24. My daughter would LOVE one the Noah’s Ark or Animal Sanctuary. My cousin Kara linked me to your page from facebook. VERY neat idea! As a parent now, I love simple toys that 1) don’t take up a lot of room, and 2) let my child explore her imagination! 🙂

  25. My daughter chose the Princess Ballerina Card Table Playhouse. They all look great! Thanks for the give-away!

  32. Waleska Wilbourne says:

    The train station would be a big hit!!

  33. We would love the Pizza Parlor.

  34. cheryl la fleur says:

    Just found your shop through a friend. Beautiful work. How difficult to choose a favorite. But remembering my own childhood and how I always wanted my own “house”, I’d have to choose, “Around the House.” I “liked” you on FB.

  35. I love the Double Delight house! And my daughter would too!

  36. I liked you on FB (BTW, the first time that I’ve been on FB in years!). After more looking at her website, we discovered that we liked the lavender playhouse, pizza parlor, mermaid manor, and the around the house for Little P. We had such a hard time choosing. She would have such a good time playing with her cousins and friends and pretending for years to come. What a great toy!

  37. Angela Sim-Laramee says:

    I know my kids would love the kings castle!

  38. My daughter would love the King’s Castle! Her name is Guinevere – like King Arthur’s queen, and it even has a sword in a stone.

  39. I love all the details of her houses (mail, picking fruit, etc.).
    It’s so hard to pick: grocery store, cafe, and library are my top picks.

  40. We have 3 children: 6,5, and 3 and a half. One boy, two girls. I believe they would entertain themselves, and me with the Farm Stand Card Table design the most. They play house already alot, and we’re making an inside castle this winter with appliance boxes, so Farm Stand it is. They adore going to near-by orchards during harvest season and would have a ball with this!

    Oh, and I don’t utilize Facebook for a handful of reasons, so no extra entry for me.

  42. My 2-yr-old & his baby brother would love the Pet Shop Playhouse!

    Thanks for the Giveaway contest!

  43. The farmstand! or that adorable one pictured above with the hearth.

  44. Done! Just liked Simple Kids on fb!

    Thnx again for the contest!

  45. My oldest would love the Animal sanctuary or pet shop, my littlest I think would like the four seasons house.
