King Swing’s playhouses have captured the imagination and love of families all across America. And it is to see why, as our vinyl playhouses are customizable, come in modern colors (such as our popular white playhouses), and are spacious, durable, and spectacular!

But which are the best-selling playhouses? Which one of the many King Swings playhouses has the honor of being THE best?

Today, we will answer that question. The criteria is simply the number of playhouses sold. Calling a playhouse “the best” is tricky because what is perfect for your family may not be for the one down the road, so today’s “best” simply means it was a top 5 best-selling playhouse of 2024.

Let’s get started!

Seen is the space saving playhouse swing set, the Lodge.

#5 The Lodge Playhouse

If you are looking for a space-saving playhouse, the Lodge Playhouse is a surefire win. This small playhouse is only 14’ front to back and 12’ left to right (be sure to factor in safety buffers).

The playhouse is 4’x6’ with a cute little 2’ balcony out the front. Attached is a staircase (the perfect access point) and a waterfall slide for zooming fun. But what is a vinyl playhouse without swings? The Lodge Playhouse has two swings, one on each side.

The Lodge Playhouse defines small but mighty! It is the perfect playhouse for those families who want big fun but have a tiny space.

#4 The Mansion Playhouse

The Mansion’s unmistakable charm is like a warm summer’s day; it invites you to come, play, and just be a kid.

The only standard vinyl playhouse design that features our wrap-around balcony, the Mansion Playhouse is infinitely customizable and easier with all that extra balcony space. Add climbers, slides, or both to your balcony, or replace everything with more flower boxes for extra decorating space.

The Mansion looks incredible as a white playhouse!

Speaking of decorating, the Mansion, with its large flower box, begs you to put your personal flair on the playhouse. Festive holiday decorations, patriotic pinwheels, or flower boutiques give the Mansion Playhouse a personal zest and make it uniquely yours.

#3 The Palace Playhouse

The Palace Playhouse is all about space. The playhouse is 8’x8’, meaning there is plenty of room for a sleepover, a foam blaster battle, a pretend restaurant, or whatever your children can dream up.

The Palace Playhouse has everything you want in a premium playhouse: a rock wall, fireman’s pole, ladder, turbo tube slide, and a three-position swing beam that includes a belt swing, trapeze bar, and a plastic glider.

The Palace Playhouse proved a popular choice this year, and many families loved the standard design and wanted to tweak it just a little. The 2024 Palace Playhouse will have all those common tweaks and likely score higher on this list!

#2 Custom Playhouses

It feels like cheating to lump custom playhouses together, but so many families designed their own or tweaked a standard design that we had to include them.

Our playhouses are easily customized, and with some creativity and big dreams, you can make awesome custom playhouses!

#1 The New Cottage Playhouse

As playhouses have grown in popularity, the New Cottage has risen up the list. Adding our new modern lean-to-roof gave the New Cottage a classy face-lift, pushing it to the best playhouse of 2023.

The New Cottage Playhouse’s 6’x6’ playhouse provides a roomy place for all sorts of creative play, while the staircase makes accessing the playhouse simple for everyone, from the littlest ones to the grandparents. The New Cottage Playhouse sports a waterfall slide, a monkey bar swing beam, and three swings, ensuring there is always something fun to do.

A contributing factor to the New Cottage’s rapid rise was how easy it was to customize. Adding tube slides, climbers, or other items to the New Cottage Playhouse is a snap, and if you look through our Instagram, you will find many different families’ unique New Cottages.

What will 2024 Be Like?

With the advent of our new A-frame Playhouses, new designs are entering the race for the top spot. The Chalet and Summit A-frame playhouses made a big splash when we revealed them, and both may join the top five list for 2024.
