No, that’s not a picture of my house or even my dream house (although my fantasy digs do include a wrap-around porch.)
This is in fact a playhouse. But not just any playhouse (obviously). It’s a custom-made, built-to-scale furniture filled spot just for tots by a company called La Petite Maison.
In this day and age of $20k birthday parties for the elementary-school set, I know I shouldn’t be shocked they’re playing in special houses that cost more than my car and almost more than my full-size abode. (A $122,000 swingset, anyone?) I wonder if a full-time maid and gardener is included in the price.
(I couldn't help but giggle that MSN refers readers to another article called "How to Unspoil Your Kids.")
I can’t tell from the photos if there are in-the-ground lagoon pools with waterfalls behind the playhouses, but it wouldn’t surprise me.
Sorry, gotta go pick my jaw up now.
