Get kids started on appreciating good design early. The faded, plastic playhouses of our youth are no longer the only option for children playing hide & seek and other games in the yard. SmartPlayhouses are a line of mini architectural gems, based on famed buildings, like van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House in Illinois. All are constructed of birch plywood, with acrylic windows and doors that open easily and shut with a magnetic latch. The little homes can be easily customized, ship flat-packed, and assemble easily. And playtime is better by design.
