Continuing with the inequality theme from this morning, on last night's Daily Show I learned about Posh Tots, a company that will sell you, among other things, "luxury playhouses" like this lighthouse bedroom set for just $14,500. The more frugal family might want to invest $6,799 in a sassafras castle playhouse or the $8,299 victorian mansion playhouse. On the other hand, if the hedge fund really did well this year, for the low price of $38,000 you can have sophie's magical windmill playhouse:

A PoshTots Exclusive! This exquisite windmill is sure to inspire dreams of fancy and flight. Crafted entirely by hand, it features a reading loft, charming windmill blades and an outdoor deck with hand rails. Interior flooring is maple wood vinyl and interior walls have wallpapered graphic panels. Exterior walls are a Douglas fir structural frame with bead board siding. The roof is made of Douglas fir structural trusses with exterior plywood sheeting and cedar shingles. Interior features include a loft with decorative hand railing, ladder, wood trims, operable windows, storage hideaways, concealed ventilation, bay window with reading bench, LED decorative lighting and upholstered cushions and pillows. Exterior features powder-coated metal planters, powder-coated metal flower motif and a second level deck with exterior hand railing. Playhouse measures 12'H x 6' x 8' (11' x 15' with decking). Please speak to a design consultant for custom options and shipping information. This item is custom made especially for you upon order.



Ah fancy and flight.
