Cardboard Kids

Not your average cardboard box, this darling, eco-friendly cottage is sure to get little imaginations thinking from the ground up. This doll house for kids encourages creativity and is great for individual or group play (perfect for birthday parties!) The cottage is made from sturdy double-walled corrugated board (45% post-consumer recycled materials), which makes it durable and 100% recyclable. Easy to assemble, it comes with its own set of eight non-toxic washable watercolor paints and works equally well with other watercolors, markers or crayons. It's like a giant coloring book! Made in the USA.

Winner of Dr. Toy's best products award and iParenting media award.

    Comments about CARDBOARD COTTAGE DOLL HOUSE:

    This is a great gift. It is surprisingly sturdy, and my 4 year old niece loved that it is her job to color it! It makes it extra special, and truly "hers". She plays with the completed masterpiece all the time!

          I bought this house for my grandson's birthday fourth birthday. He asked for a Gingerbread House. This cottage was a perfect gift. He loved it.

          We have spend many hours making this cute cardboard cottage into his Gingerbread house.

            I got this for my daughter for her 7th birthday and she loved it. She and her
            5 year old sister colored the entire cottage and put it together all by themselves. It is large enough to be the "house" for her beloved stuffed animal.

                The doll house was a great gift for my five year old niece. She loved that she could use the paints that came with it and her own decor materials. She colored it with crayons, color pencils, paint and glitter. It was a great craft project for she and her three year old brother. The dimensions were perfect and not too big for her to carry from room to room. The design and decor of the house were adorable! A great rainy day group project!

                  We all know how the joke goes; get your child a cardboard box instead of expensive toys and they'll be happier than ever! Well it's definitely true with this box. My eight year old is always looking for "houses" for her Barbies, Bratz, and other misc dolls, and now she has one. She's used the enclosed watercolors and has painted it and it is now a part of her doll village she's got set up in her room. Great idea.

                      We are returning this item. My daughter was expecting a larger house and was in tears when this product came. She saved all of her money to purchase a larger house that she could actually play in. I was unpleasantly surprised to find that a "dollhouse" sized house was [$] which does not seem to be a fair price for such a small item. My husband and daughter both did not understand that they would be getting such a small house when they ordered.

                            Not very eco.

                            White cardboard is bleached and bleaching white paper is the third biggest polluter on the planet.
