This is the playhouse we are building for our kids. If you don't raise it above the ground and do the bare minimum in decorating extras and get the OSB board on sale (for $7 a sheet like we did) you could do it for around $100.

The panther cover? Total TURN OFF. Can you say "I bought this from one of those guys selling blankets at the side of the road"? Ugh.

Jammies to unwrap and wear Christmas eve. One "big" ($30 or less) present each and one "small" (around $10) present, plus some small stocking stuffers like chapstick, socks, mandarin orange, candy cane and a hotwheels car. This is for my 2 girls and one boy - Christmas shouldn't be a focus on materialism. But way to go rotating the toys... we do that too and it works great!

While I appreciate the effort that goes into having a themed birthday party, I am hesitant to applaud this effort as the "Indian" theme likely perpetuates racial stereotypes. Yes I as a child played cowboys and indians, but my children do not and will not. The community of First Peoples (to whom I do not belong, by the way) in Canada and the U.S have had significant damage done to them by an us-them mentality. I think Ohdeedoh should be careful of what it promotes, considering not only design but the ethics of the message.
