Two little girls sitting in front of wooden playhouseWhen considering outdoor play for little ones, wooden playhouses might just be the epitome of “let’s pretend” fun.

1. KidKraft Outdoor Playhouse

Ages: 2-8

In first place on the list of the top 10 wooden playhouses for 2016 is the KidKraft Outdoor Playhouse.

Yep, wooden playhouses are pretty sweet—this one, especially. Great for backyard pretenders, this playhouse is small and quaint with a rustic cottage feel that fairytale-loving kiddos will appreciate. The wood is beautiful and weather-resistant, which means it will remain beautiful for generations of summertime fun. Love the outward-opening windows.

8. Axi Wooden Emma Playhouse

Ages: 3 and up

I have seen a lot of this one this year – here is the Axi Wooden Emma Playhouse.

Funky and big, this playhouse is weird in a good way. The odd trim around the windows, railings, and doors make it look as if the playhouse is leaning in all directions—like something out of a quirky fairytale. Kids can get on via a reclined ladder, then slide down.
