Sometimes I look at the toys in my girls' play room and wonder if they would notice if half of them disappeared. They're fun and all, but some of them just seem to end up sitting on the shelf or only getting played with once in a while.

On the other hand, I wouldn't dare touch the Shuttle Imagination Playhouse that has had a permanent place in our home ever since our Crafty Kids (formerly KidsCraft) review back in June. There is hardly a day that goes by that my children don't play in there, turning it into everything from a house to a rocket to a bus to just a fun place to hang out and play.

And throughout the hundreds of times that a multitude of kids have gone in and out of our Shuttle, colored on it, and in general loved it (not always in the most gentle way), it has held up wonderfully. There's not really anything that I would consider changing that would make this a more entertaining, eco-friendly, all-around fun item to have...

Except maybe give it a friend.

After receiving a tremendously positive response to their Shuttle Imagination and Creation Cottage, Crafty Kids has now come out with model versions that are 1/3 the size. Still featuring the same easy-to-assemble, high quality, detailed 100% recycled blank cardboard pieces as their full-size counterparts, the Mini Craft Models are just the right size for dolls or stuffed animals.

Plus, they're just so darn cute, you know?

Already familiar with the ease of putting together the slots and flaps of Crafty Kids products, this Shuttle Imagination Craft Model was fully constructed and ready to be decorated in a matter of minutes, if that. I definitely didn't have to tell Big Sister E and Little Sister B twice, they went right to work at personalizing this as their own.

Weighing in at only three pounds and standing just under two feet tall, this Shuttle can easily be moved from the floor to the tabletop without any problem and I love the way that my kids can easily customize it at their own pace.

If they feel like pulling out the crayons or markers (each Craft Model actually comes with its own set of six washable, non-toxic, jumbo markers) then they can, but if they just want to whittle away the hours sending their stuffed animals and baby dolls on imaginative adventures, then they can do that as well.

With their full and mini-sized exceptional Playhouses, Crafty Kids has turned a universally-adored toy (the cardboard box) into an award-winning, creativity-inspiring product. Whether two feet tall or six feet tall, the Shuttle Imagination and Creation Cottage combine great design, quality construction and imaginary play into an inventive, eco-friendly pleasure for kids of all ages.

Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will find out how much fun a Craft Model from Crafty Kids can really be, because...

One lucky person will win their choice of a Shuttle Imagination Craft Model (ARV $24.95) or Creation Cottage Craft Model (ARV $22.95)!
