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!

  1. Heather says:

    One of the most imaginative toys we own are playsilks. Just today my daughter wrapped a red one around her head/face & pretended she was inside the belly of the whale with Jonah!

  2. Jennifer Mendiola says:

    a lunch bag that we got in a white-elephant gift exchange last christmas- so random!

  3. Shelley R says:

    Paper towel cardboard centers. Periscope, teliscope, string together for a porticulus, drum sticks, log bridge, Hot Wheels tunnel, you name it, it’s been explored prior to destruction and recycle basket!

  4. Ruth says:

    Most imaginative… Probably our wooden, child-sized kitchen. The girls spend hours playing with it.

  5. Kelly L. says:

    My youngest likes her playsilks the best, but my oldest has an interesting habit of using wooden train tracks for everything…

  6. Cara says:

    My son is currently in love with one of my big spatulas. It’s been used as a drill, a hammer, a tailpipe on his tricycle, a strainer, and to actually cook with in his play kitchen.

  7. Sara says:

    Blocks. All shapes, sizes, colors.

  8. Tina says:

    Currently, my daughter’s favorite imaginative toy is her huge collection of matchbox cars. Hours upon hours of play–the cars talk to each other.

  9. Tina says:

    I tried to subscribe but kept getting a whole bunch of code pop up instead. I will definitely try again though. Looks like a great site.

  10. Melissa L. says:

    String. My son loves using it to create contraptions from toys, kitchen gear, and a lot of things I prefer he not tie up! This treehouse would be ideal in our small space for both my four-year old and 1-1/2 year old daughter for many years ahead.

  11. Trish White says:

    The fairy land we built over the summer!

  12. Trish White says:

    Just subscribed to Imagine Childhood blog – love it!

  13. Heather says:

    Pens, paper, crayons, gluesticks and scissors.

  14. Kjerstin says:

    Right now, my sons’ favorite creative endeavor is playing with wooden animals, blocks with a few cars and trucks thrown in. Keeps them busy for hours.

  15. Kjerstin says:

    I’ve been of Imagine Childhood for a while, but just subscribed to the blog today!

  16. Melissa says:

    Like other people, our playsilks get an incredible amount of use for all different kinds of purposes! We also have a few small wooden animals that are enjoying being participants in all sorts of play!

  17. Melissa says:

    I subscribed to the blog!

  18. Holly says:

    My son loves trucks, but he doesn’t just drive them. He makes them talk to each other, help each other out, and even fly! I love watching him play.

  19. Kristy says:

    One of the most imaginative toys for our girls right now is either dolls or doll house – both of which are constantly being played with! This tree house would go great with the doll house!

  21. Shay says:

    Our children seem to be drawn toward pillows (for hiding, hopping, building, pretending), anything resembling a sword for my son (bananas, paper towel rolls, etc…), wooden play food and play kitchen (a big hit with friends), and mostly each other. We’re all quite silly and are always interacting and acting out characters from books and movies.

  22. The most imaginative would have to be his musical instruments.

  23. Pamela says:

    I think our playsilks are the most imaginative toy we have. They are capes, costumes, slings, forts, landscape, and peek-a-boo tools.

  28. Rod says:

    Building blocks and Legos.

  30. Renea says:

    Dress up clothes of any sort (some of my old t-shirts, old halloween costumes, my son’s receiving blankets for capes, you name it!).

  31. Our most imaginative toy is a couple kid sized chairs that my kids make into a car and go on road trips with, it is so cute.

  32. Heather says:

    I’d have to say the most imaginative toys we have right now are legos, blocks, and art supplies.

  33. Penny says:

    Cardboard blocks…my girls use them for as iceskates, roads, pens for animals and buildings.

  34. Rachel R says:

    Probably our blankets and quilts that often become tunnels and tents.

  35. Courtney says:

    We are currently really into making furniture for some of our little elves – matchbox beds and such. We are even trying to carve little chairs like they have at Imagine Childhood. Thank you for the giveaway! Imagine Childhood is a great company with some great folks!

    I’m going to have to say playmobile. We never kept the kits together instead my son would put together his own creation. He would play for hours!

  41. Dan B says:

    Basic block set or our massive car collection.

  42. Jane says:

    My grandchildren have a small black purse that doubles as a brief case or to carry of stolen treasures

  43. Lorus says:

    Does the living room rug count as a toy? The kids use the stripes on it to be roads for their cars. Sometimes it a fence when they pretend to be animals. Right now it is a wrestling mat! It is also a favorite place to read and play games.

  44. Jenny Runyan says:

    The most imaginative toy in my house is a little people castle. My daughter uses it for all her toys to be a part in during playtime with it. This tree house would make such a good companion to that!

  45. Christina says:

    My kids would love this! Thanks for the great giveaways!

  46. Anita says:

    Probably a piece of rope that my nephew tied to one end of the room all the way to the other and put on a carabiner to have a zipline go all the way through the house…so much fun!

  47. Terrie Smith says:

    I’d say that my art material is the most creative I have – paints, pastels, crayons, pencils, charcoal, molding clay etc.

  48. Kathy says:

    We have so much fun with cardboard boxes… space rockets, trains, stores, ice cream shop, house, semi full of veggies… all with the same box!

  49. Christine says:

    Thanks for the giveaway! Our current imaginative toy would be legos.

  50. emily says:

    One of the most creative toys we have in our house are natural wooden blocks. We have various shapes and sizes and they are in constant use as food in cafe’s, dollhouse furniture, medicine for sick animals, houses for gnomes, anything and everything can be built or imagined!
