Playhouse was something I wished I had when I was young. I remembered climbing the sofa with my brother in our house imagining it was a castle! We would hide in the cupboards with our torch lights pretending that was our own house. It was also a hideout for us, to stay away from adult-world. A playhouse would have been nice.
KPOPMOM thinks ahead – Playhouse for Little Ari
Every mother thinks and plans ahead. Before Arissa was born, I have plans on how to decorate her room. I wasn’t going to go for anything too Princess or Pinkish just because I am expecting a girl. As she was born in the monkey year, I thought safari theme may be a good idea.
2 person completed the room in less than an hour. At 6 months pregnant, I was all about doing things in the easiest and fastest way.
Fast forward to 1 year later, I found the perfect playhouse for Arissa. The Owl Playhouse perfectly blends in with the safari-theme that I had in mind. She is definitely still too young for the Owl Playhouse but there is no harm in sharing it with all the mommies who have children 3 years and above.
HULKI Owl Playhouse – What is it?
HULKI Owl Playhouse was one of the Kickstarter product in May 2016. All their products are vibrant, supersized, Dutch designed playhouses that are 100% recyclable. What I love about their products is how it is lightweight, easy to fix and take down. Most importantly the material is built to withstand wear and tear from children by using an extra strong custom-engineered cardboard.
HULKI Owl Playhouse – How to assemble?
This is how the packaging looks like. It fits right into my car boot and weighs around 5.5kg (lighter than my 8-month old girl).
I brought this back to my hometown so that my little niece can enjoy the playhouse before Arissa. Below are the step-by-step on how I assembled the playhouse in less than 15 minutes!
A closer look at HULKI Owl. I took a video so you can see the quality of the cardboard. Still can’t believe that I managed to assembled it all by myself!

Just a note to all parents: Assembly of HULKI Playhouse should be done by adults. I encountered a bit of paper cut when setting up the playhouse.
Playtime with HULKI Owl Playhouse
Ashleigh, my niece really like the playhouse. She cannot wait for me to finish it.
What’s in store for Arissa?
Well, I decided to be creative and started a little decoration on the playhouse. I am sure this would be the perfect activity for you and your family. Get your crayons, marker pens or sticker books and start being creative.
More ideas and family time with HULKI Owl Playhouse
- Kids love to scribble, whether its paper, wall or the floor. Now you can get them to scribble on the cardboard. These scribbles can be precious memory 5 years down the road.
- Personally, I am going to stick all the timetables inside and force Arissa to memorise them next time. (BUT this is just ME, being kiasu)
- Hand print – create memories with palm/hand-printing all over the playhouse.
- Hang lanterns, stick photos or just let your little ones decide what they want to do, it is their playhouse after all.
- One suggestion – can include a table lamp or a small torchlight in the playhouse so that your little ones can start their own adventure.
