I was looking for deals on a kid’s playhouse, searching the interwebs for the best deals and prices. I came across this deal on the My Hello Kitty House from Toys R Us Canada. Combining the sale prices and by using a coupon code, you can bring the cost of this playhouse down to only $79.98… plus you should be able to collect at your local store for free, omitting any nasty shipping fees.
You must order online and use the Toys R Us coupon codeCineplexFeb to get the My Hello Kitty playhouse for $79.98. That ends up being 27% off its original price. It’s only available for click and collect, there’s no ship to home option available on this toy house.
The My Hello Kitty House is made by Mega Bloks, a very well-known toy manufacturer. And from what I can tell, you don’t just have to style the playhouse in the configuration pictured above. As this playhouse is made from giant mega-bloks, you can actually make it in other styles, such as a sweet shop, lemonade stand, and more. What a great idea!
While I cannot find this exact house at any other online stores in Canada, I can do a general price comparison for similar plastic toy houses. The cheapest non-inflatable and non-cardboard playhouse that I can see on Amazon.ca is this Tot's Play Villa Playhouse which is $130 there. The cheapest similar playhouse on Toys R Us (that is available) is this Little Tikes Cape Cottage Playhouse which is priced at $90 after the above coupon. It’s a bit more elaborate though. Over at Walmart.ca, the lowest priced playhouse is that same Tot’s house which is coming in at $180. At Sears, the lowest playhouse is this one which is coming in at $120.
Online, there doesn’t seem to be an awful lot of choice or availability for this type of toy. So, from the above research, I believe the Toys R Us deal for the Hello Kitty playhouse is a great price – providing you’re close enough to a Toys R Us to collect at store for free.
