Win a KidsCraft Playhouse!

shuttle Creation_Cottage

IMG_3098

I get some really fun things to try out here at Mommy’s idea and this was no exception.  This sturdy playhouse is made of 100% recycled material and made in the USA.  To make it even better, for every one sold, KidsCraft will plant one tree! 

Assembling the Shuttle Imagination was fairly simple, although you’ll probably need to assemble it wherever you decide to keep it.  We started in the house and then figured we should keep it in the garage (It’s cardboard, so it’s not meant to be kept outside).  It wouldn’t fit through the door, so we just took it apart and put it back together again.  My son was very excited and put on a special “astronaut” suit for the shuttle.    We haven’t decorated it yet, but I’m sure that will be a lot of fun too.  Maybe a neighborhood project!  It was certainly a conversation piece when people wondered why we had a space shuttle in our garage.  :)

Here’s how to win one of your own . . .

1. Visit http://www.kidscraftusa.com/.
2. Come back here and leave a comment telling us one interesting fact about the company.

Sounds like KidsCrafts did some fun things for Earth Day. I love supporting green companies. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway!

Pinkie said...

I love that the idea for the company came from watching kids do what they do best...play.

Not only are they eco friendly but they also give a portion of their profits to children's charity.

the whole idea started when they were moving and noticed the kids playing with the cardboard boxes and coloring them with markers

A move to a new office left them with a bunch of big cardboard boxes that the kids went crazy playing with and this inspired the products.
