I just found this simple, inexpensive gift idea at Wired’s GeekDad blog:
The Little Piggy’s Playhouse, designed by an architect for their kid, is an all-cardboard playhouse, made in the USA from 100% recyclable materials. They come in regular cardboard brown, or white – all the better for coloring! And, I have to say, compared to similar items we’ve seen elsewhere, it’s pretty reasonably priced. They’re available for pre-order right now at $34.95 (you can save another 5% with coupon code JOYCE), and should start shipping next week.

Did you ever play with cardboard boxes as a kid? There’s nothing better to stimulate the imagination. This just takes it to the next, more aesthetically pleasing level.
