The Pop-Up Playhouse is truly an heirloom piece. Beautifully designed and made to last with maximum educational impact in mind.
Its timeless design will keep your little ones entertained for hours, encouraging limitless imaginative and creative play whilst developing fine and gross motor skills, cognitive development and problem-solving skills.
Each thoughtfully designed panel will harness and encourage imagination and creativity. Children can express themselves freely though intuition, ingenuity and imagination. Lends itself beautifully to Montessori teaching principals.
What do we learn?
Fine Motor Skills
The busy board panel includes cogs, an abacus, a shape labyrinth, steering wheel and weather wheel to keep little hands and minds engaged.
Gross Motor Skills and Social Skills
Children express themselves both verbally and non-verbally through imaginative play. They use their muscles and senses to achieve this. A large construction project like our playhouse is perfect tool for self-expression.
The slot and play design allows parents and care-givers the opportunity to build their pop-up playhouse with their little ones, building relationships through play and quality time.
The building process improves manual dexterity, body awareness, hand-eye co-ordination and increases fitness and muscle tone.
Having a playhouse in the bedroom or playroom provides opportunities for children to escape the world around them and find solitude within its four walls. The house lends itself beautifully for use as a reading corner or space for relaxation and reflection too.
Our playhouse provides the perfect place to begin imaginative play. We wanted to create a timeless piece that would keep children playing in multiple ways throughout early childhood. The peek-a boo panel can be used for posting and conversing. The window panel is wonderful for games like shop-shop. And the open roof panel is fantastic for sky gazing. The possibilities are endless.
The opportunity to play freely encourages healthy development in children. Young children who engage in imaginative play are more creative, perform better at school and develop a strong problem-solving approach to learning. Experts also say that the pretending process builds skills in many essential developmental areas.
When children engage in pretend play they are experimenting with social roles in life, learning co-operation and compromise. Having conversations develops language skills, social cues and experimentation with eye contact, tones and emotions giving them a better understanding of social relationships.
Pretend play allows for the expansion of vocabulary and organised play in their own space and time without the risk of embarrassment. They can also express both positive and negative feelings and helps them to work through difficult emotions.
Imaginative play fosters mental growth by creating opportunities for trying out new ideas, ways of thinking and problem solving.
