Choosing seating for a kids playhouse should be more than just throwing some chairs its way. Where your kids rest their little bottoms is as important as any other furnishings or toys that are incorporated into the overall playhouse decor. A really cool type of seating that often has versatile utility is a stool. But not just any stool will do.

Turn seating into a game with a set of Puzzle Stools! Puzzle Stools are designed to loosely interlock with each other when placed side-by-side. These stools are fantastic for use by multiple children that can use these toy-like seats to construct a string of stools or for a more interesting version of musical chairs! Some of the styles actually allow for interlocking on multiple sides of the stool, so there is even greater flexibility in the seating arrangement.
Go for a very “natural” stool such as a mushroom or flower! How cute is it for your child to have little mushrooms or daisies popping up all over his or her kids playhouse. There are some super sweet looking, nature inspired stools that can bring the forest inside of your child’s playhouse.
