‘Funky Little Shoe Shack’

Not your Old Lady’s shoe, either! This playhouse rocks with fun. Whether you’re singing the blues or crooning like Elvis, this is the place that gives fun a new dimension. Shaped like a shoe, don’t worry about being a heel, just crawl through, it’s really the front door!

Unlike the other shoe story, that old lady just didn’t know what to do, but quicker than you can sing ‘Footloose’, you will kick up your heels at the interior delights. Nooks and crannies and architectural enchantments are all around. This homey feel is, as you guessed it, as comfortable as an old shoe.

‘Gone With the Wind’M’Dear, ‘I do believe I’ve come home’. This wonderful and detailed playhouse beckons you with the promise of fun to come. Plan a southern-style picnic or perhaps an afternoon of tea with Rhett and Scarlet in attendance. Or ‘sit a spell’ on the verandah and enjoy a day of games and lemonade.

‘Hogwarts Theatre’Legend has it that the community of Hogwart was founded over a thousand years ago – the precise date is uncertain, but of this we are certain – the magic lives on… Hogwarts Theatre is still in existence today. In this wonderful theatre-in-the-round, you are the Director. Cast your friends in make believe productions . Be Harry Potter or a dangerous pirate, or save the damsel in distress! Listen, you can hear the applause from the audience seated in the mezzanine. The possibilities are as endless, so are the period costumes that wait for you in wardrobe. The floor boasts of the highly regarded compass rose design created by the very best wood crafting artisans. E.F.San Juan designed a one-of-a-kind operable circular window. We believe the weathervane is at least a thousand years old! Don’t you agree, this is a playhouse even Shakespeare would envy?!Sponsor: Canvas Creations

‘Alys’ Palys’Standing proudly in the sunlight, with the royal colors flying and the trumpets announcing the arrival of Alys’ Palys’, her subjects are beckoned to pay their respect. Come forth and explore the mystery of this palys. But this palys is different from the rest, just like her name; Where does she come from and what’s in a name? Is she from the tales of the Arabian Nights, a place filled with intrigue and magical carpet rides? Or perhaps, another time, from the West Indies Shore where pirates search for hidden treasure and Marco Polo sailed? But Alys smiles and will only say, ‘At this palys you unlock your imagination and you can be worlds away.’And she is right, as all monarchs are. Inside this whimsical playhouse, you can create anything you want. The walls are lined with chalk boards waiting for the talents of young Picassos or you can teach a friend their ABCs. Carefully crafted and designed, this Palys is fit for a King. Oops, excuse me Alys, I meant Queen!

‘Butterfly House’

Imagination is the cornerstone of youthful adventure, and Butterfly House is a wooden cabin of whimsy and fantasy reminiscent of a hidden forest retreat. The cabin appears to be in motion itself with its unusual and artistic roof line. This playhouse comes complete with a built in bunk with ladder, a wall table and is ready for that special someone with a sense of adventure. Indiana Jones or Davy Crockett would both feel at home here.

Young imaginations can soar as high as the butterflies. From the great frontiers of undiscovered wonders to the songs of crickets and frogs, the end of a day well spent. Inspired by the Bear Creek Development in Freeport, Florida. Interior artwork on the walls painted by Justin Gaffrey, 2005 Artist of the Year.
