Giveaway: Wooden Treehouse from Imagine Childhood

This giveaway has now ended. Check back soon for the winner!

Welcome to Simple Living Media’s Home for the Holidays! We’ve got 25 giveaways across the entire network this week to give you plenty of chances to win a great gift, just in time for the holidays.

Today I’m giving away a Wooden Treehouse from Imagine Childhood. This is the perfect toy to spark the imagination of your little one.

Valued at $150, this treehouse creates a lovely spin on the idea of a traditional dollhouse–its branches invite fairies, gnomes, and dolls to spend hours having adventures with your child.

I’m completely thrilled to have the chance to review it, as it will be my seven-year-old daughter’s gift under the tree this Christmas. She’s going to love it!

Learn more about how you can win this sweet toy.

I fell in love with this treehouse while unpacking it from the box, before I even put it together. The wooden pieces are crafted from 100% reclaimed ash and walnut and the house contains three levels for playing.

Yes, assembly is required, but you don’t even need a screwdriver. The pieces slot together, like a puzzle, very quickly. Once assembled, this toy is incredibly sturdy. I also love the extra little touches–like the rope ladder, bamboo basket on a pulley, and the tree swing.

This toy appeals to both genders. The natural wooden color doesn’t scream “girl,” and I know both of my sons will want to take turns playing with it as well.

Years ago, before I even started blogging, a neighbor on my doorstep said, “There’s this blog I read that I think you’d enjoy. It’s called Imagine Childhood.” I’ve been a fan ever since my first virtual visit. To be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever seen an item in their store that I didn’t like.

The owners of Imagine Childhood ask themselves five questions before adding a new product to their store:

  1. Does the product promote exploration, creativity, and/or unstructured play?
  2. Is it fun and exciting?
  3. Is it Fair Trade and made of sustainable or eco-friendly materials?
  4. Can it be reused again and again, and in varying applications?
  5. Does it provide learning opportunities?

Their commitment to quality toys shines through loud and clear as you browse all their categories, including indoor play, outdoor play, optics and navigation, and family field guides.

Once you enter the virtual space at Imagine Childhood, plastic, tacky alternatives seriously lose their appeal. If you’re hoping to find an open-ended toy to inspire hours of creative play, look no further than this sweet store.

One Simple Homeschool reader will win your very own Wooden Treehouse from Imagine Childhood!

  3. For my daughter, it is her kitchen. She can spend hours making all sorts of food.

  4. My daughter is really, really loving her play scarves right now. It can be an outfit, head dress, blanket for doll diaper changes, sling to carry the baby, dance accessories, a place to play hide and seek, etc. etc. etc. So simple and such fun.

  5. We have a set of old school blocks from my childhood, the ones with the arches and semi-circles, etc. My daughter absolutely loves them and can spend an hour or two at a time playing with them. I plan on keeping them throughout all of my children and, hopefully, they can make it to the next generation too ;-).

  6. Good quality model animals. He looooves to have “sets” of them, at least two. He carries them around everywhere, holds the appropriate ones while we read books. Sets them up to “watch” him eat. I could go on and on. He would *love* this treehouse!

  7. I subscribed. Nice blog, thanks!

  8. I’d have to say that the kitchen set is probably the most imaginative, as it’s the most realistic, haha!

  9. Our nature basket is the place the kids wander over to use their imagination. My 5 year old daughter keeps it full of lovely rocks, sticks and leaves and her 2-year old brother is really good and finding acorns and pine cones. Right now it’s being used to create indoor fairy houses and also as fodder for holiday ornament making.

    Thanks so much for the chance to win this amazing dollhouse and for letting us know about this blog and website. Just in time for the holidays! ; )

  10. I love it!!

    Mine get the most imaginative play out of beanbag animals. Duplo and/or traditional wooden blocks are a very close second.

  13. Our most imaginative toys are our dress up clothes. The kids are constantly coming out dressed up as one character or another, many they make up all on their own:)

  16. My kids play for hours and hours with their MagnaTiles. They can be fences, towers, forts, and so on.

  17. I would say that right now it would be Legos — the medium-sized ones. Just perfect for small ones’ hands.

  18. Our most imaginative toy would probably be play scarves.

  19. I think our playsilks get the most use around here for sure. They can be used for so many different things by my boys and girls.

  20. Her wooden clacker instrument. It’s painted like a male head and it clacks at the mouth, it’s really cute! She’s trying to call it mister clacketyhead, but it sounds more like “sir kwacky-ed” lol! It goes everywhere with us and she asks for it if she can’t find it. I think she would love this treehouse just as much.

  21. Our most imaginative toy is our bag of playsilks and box of wood blocks. Is there anything that you can’t do with those two toys?

  22. We have some wooden blocks that my sons are always building neat things with.

  28. boxes. My kids love boxes. They pick up a few from Costco each time we go and they become boats, houses, pet houses, tunnels and who knows what else.

  29. Most imaginative toy right now is our collection of musical instruments- chimes, xylophone, drum, maracas, shakers, piano, organ…the kids have a blast! madebymyrnie(at)gmail(dot)com

  30. Tinkertoys

  31. Furniture! I know it’s not technically a toy but my 5 year old daughter is always rearranging the chairs and small tables, ottomans, doll furniture, etc. to make stores, houses, carnivals, anything you can think of. Watch where you’re going around here!

  32. really cardboard boxes and baskets seem to get the most imagination!

  33. The most imaginative toy currently in our household has to be the roll of white paper and crayons. My girls make so many things with paper, crayons and scissors that get used in all of the make believe games they come up with. My older daughter who loves fairies would love the treehouse.
    majellamom’s latest post: Small Successes

  34. The most imaginative toys in our collection are the toys we’ve made together as a family. My children just love making their own toys both for themselves and for each other.

  35. My daughter’s most imaginative play toy would probably be our Haba blocks.
    Archer Atkins’s latest post: Butternut Squash Ice Cream

  36. Legos are the most consistently used, imaginative toy we have.

    My oldest son and I tried to make tree blocks two years ago for my middle son. They didn’t turn out all that well, but I’ve been admiring these tree themed blocks for quite awhile!

  43. Honestly, a piece of bark my son uses for various things.

  44. Our most imagination-inspiring “toys” is the box of dress-up clothes and a pile of blankets. They can be anything and go anywhere!

    My daughter spends hours with her wooden blocks every day, building things I’d never imagined!

  46. I would have to say any box that comes in the door, is played w/ a million ways before it is torn apart and trashed.

  47. The most imaginative “toy” in our house is the stack of plain white paper “stolen” from the computer printer tray (we have to buy extra just for them)! :) My five and seven year old have made many paper airplanes, cards, Christmas tree ornaments, and just today a sword (inspired by a Franklin book). Open ended play is a favorite with my girls and they would love the simplicity and creativity that would come with this tree house!

  48. definitely lego- new things are created each day
