Norio Kids playhouse (giveaway)

 Ashlyn loves to play in her playhouse in the backyard, but like many families we just don’t have room to put one inside.  Norio Kids has a creative solution – a cardboard playhouse system!

We received our Cocoro playhouse system just before Easter but I held off on opening it until after the holiday weekend.  With a total of 26 pieces, you can create any structure you like!  It comes with instructions for a basic playhouse, which is what we built.  The playhouse dimensions are 44” x 39” x 39” so there is lots of room for my almost-3-year old and a friend to play inside.  Made with sturdy double-wall SFI (Sustainable Forestry Initiative) certified cardboard that is 100% recyclable, it is much sturdier than I had expected it to be!

First things first: we opened the package.  When I explained to Ashlyn that not only was it a playhouse that we could build, but she was allowed to decorate it with crayons and stickers, she literally could not wait long enough for me to take everything out!  We spent a half hour just decorating the roof together, as it was the piece on the top when I opened the box.

The next step was separating the pieces and assembling the playhouse.  I took this picture at 1:59pm:

And these were taken at 2:07pm:

Ashlyn is having a blast with her new playhouse.  She loves to play in it and it was a big hit with one of her little friends when they came for a play date – how often can children colour on the walls?  I love that this playhouse offers a variety of creative outlets and Ashlyn will have loads of fun decorating it for weeks to come.  We’ll keep it up most of the time because it’s so much fun, but I love that if we’re having a particularly full house due to company or a packed play date, I can disassemble the playhouse in moments and store it easily, then have it back up before the last mini-van pulls away from our home!

A bonus that she doesn’t even know about yet (I’m holding on to them for a rainy afternoon): all of the Cocoro cardboard playhouse structures come with 2 miniature versions made of cardstock!

Norio Kids is offering Not Just Baby Brain readers a 20% discount code until May 6th!  Just enter MRK320BB when you order your Cocoro playhouse system; 2 free miniature versions are included with the sale of the cardboard Cocoro playhouses.
