Make-A-Wish and Lilliput Play Homes: A Very Special Relationship

There's no more heartbreaking - and heartwarming - experience than working with the amazing folks at Make-A-Wish to fulfill a Wish for some brave, beautiful child somewhere, suffering indignities most of us adults can't even imagine. 

Over the past 20 years, Lilliput Play Homes has been honored to work with many of the chapters across the US, most recently sending an Olde Firehouse to Collegeville, PA, a Lil' Raskal's Lookout to Murrysville, PA, and a custom Cotton Candy Manor to Vista, CA. 

Several months ago, I received an inquiry from the San Diego chapter of Make-A-Wish inquiring about a custom playhouse that would incorporate the look of Disney's Tangled with some play activities for their Wish child.  Over a period of weeks, we designed several looks for the Wish family to contemplate, adding one feature, omitting another, until at last, we had created the perfect playhouse.  Turns out, Emma, our adorable Wish child, loves to draw and create but still wanted some fun play activities for her family and friends.  Here's what Emma sent us (I'd say we either have a future architect or master playhouse designer in our midst!):

So what do you think? Isn't this the perfect place for any budding artist to dream and create her masterpieces?!

Emma, we wish you and your family all the very best - and are praying for your full recovery!! Enjoy your beautiful new playhouse.  We hope it inspires you to continue dreaming and inspiring the rest of us!!

Creating a Bright Tomorrow

If you're reading this, chances are pretty good you've already seen - and hopefully thoroughly enjoyed! - our newly updated website.  Did you like the new photos on our Residential and Commercial Photo Galleries? Did you enjoy seeing how we work with different customers, taking an idea and transforming it into a magical and memorable playhouse (or play village) in our Custom Design Process

At Lilliput Play Homes, we are always listening to our customers, always preparing for the future.  This updated website is a perfect reflection of that preparation.  Several years ago, we noticed an increased interest from the commercial sector: hotels, doctor's offices, shopping centers, schools, budding entrepreneurs, children's museums, and even municipal playgrounds.  But each new application had different wants and needs; our answer was our Main Street Playhouse Collection.  Primarily designed for inside use, this collection allows customers to choose from a huge selection of playhouses, creating the ideal mini village or town. 

And since this is Lilliput Play Homes after all, customization is our middle name! Interested in a retro-themed village? See the adorable Kidville in Dallas, TX.  Or perhaps you prefer the look of a Tudor village? They don't come any cuter than at Mountain Play Lodge in Asheville, NC.  You dream it, we can build it!

Stay tuned as we embark on our newest adventures.  The future at Lilliput Play Homes is very bright indeed!
