Your toddler may not be headed back to school this month, but she (and you!) may still benefit from a sweet escape and change of scenery in a Modern Playhouse. The Circle and Wedge Houses from Modern Playhouse will make their debut this fall, shipping out September 1st — just in time for imaginative play and unstructured learning to be in session on the home front. These modern, modular structures feature a natural color palette to blend in with any home decor, they are sustainably made from FSC certified domestic lumber and maple apple-ply, and manufactured by local craftsman in California.

Modern Playhouses were conceived by San Francisco based environmentalist and mom Gitane Royce, to give her toddler “a minimalist playhouse that presents her with a blank canvas for engaged, imaginative play.” Both the Wedge House and the Circle House come with 5-6 preassembled panels, hardware and assembly tools, and they may be easily constructed by two people in half an hour. One panel of the Circle House, seen above may be removed to accommodate parents and older children.

A modular furniture collection specially designed for the Modern Playhouses and featuring a table and two benches with storage space underneath will also launch this fall. Neither playhouse is recommended for exterior use, so parents may opt to place these miniature dwellings in a playroom or bedroom to carve out a special niche for their child.
