This is so cool.
Can't find it on the internet.
Not at any Black Friday sale.
If you can find one, you are extremely lucky.
It's called The Magic Playhouse.
You can crawl into this thing and you are transported.
One section is called The Dream Lair.
These are the directions on the outside:
"If you enter, make sure you make a wish because your dream will come true."
And then this:
First Star I see tonight.
I wish I may,
I wish I might
Have this wish
I wish tonight.
-Read this when you make your wish"
Inside The Dream Lair there is a very tranquil room with lots of tiny lights that poke thru the ceiling. You can lay on your back and imagine they are the stars. It is amazing how free, and warm, and safe, and fun it is. You can imagine almost anything in there, and it comes true.
On the other side of The Magic Playhouse is The Color Dome. Here, there are no rules other than to have fun. And have fun with color. Crayons. Pens. Markers. Chalk. Colored duct tape.
You can color the floor, walls and ceiling. Anything you want! And no grown ups can or will be upset!
There is a skylight and a window to allow enough light in so you can see all the colors.
Boys love it. They imagine forts. And race cars. And spaceships.
But girls really love it. It's where we can talk to our best friend and imagine what the world will be like and then it becomes real.
Grown ups just don't get it. Which is what makes it so awesome.
And best of all, you can't buy it. And each one is totally unique.
The one we just got is starting to wear out. Boys just don't take good care of things. Is there anyplace where they don't like to wrestle?
If I'm lucky, the next one will be even bigger. My daddy says there is a store that sells refrigerators nearby and they have really big boxes.
