The Magic Tree – making a comeback with Vulli!

Vulli Magic Tree play set The Magic Tree – making a comeback with Vulli!

If living in a tree house isn’t possible, then playing in one must be the next best thing. But to have a tree house you can take with you wherever you go? Well, that really would be magic!

The Klorofil Magic Tree by French company Vulli is perfect for little imaginations. Create a home for the Klorofil family of five in this magical tree house. There’s a lift to wind up and down that takes people from the tree top to the base, furniture, a car, a swing and see-saw, even a pet dog – everything a family needs!

The Klorofil Magic Tree opens up to the sweet sound of birds singing and a running creek to create the perfect ambience. When play is finished, just close the tree’s leafy green exterior to keep its family and contents safe. There’s also a handle for easy transporting.

Some of you may recognise the Magic Tree, after all it was quite a popular toy back in the 70s and 80s. I spent hours playing with my cousin’s Kenner Tree Tots toy as a child so I’m delighted it’s making a comeback now thanks to Vulli!

The Vulli Klorofil Magic Tree is available from The Infant Boutique for $195 plus postage – available Australia wide.

  2. I’m buying this for me and pretending it’s for my daughter. I loved this toy as a kid – it outlasted all other fads. I can’t wait to get my hands on one!!

  4. I too had this as a kid! Oh the memories! My Mum told me she threw my old one out a couple of years ago (sob) so I did an ebay search thinking my son would LOVE one but had no luck. Looks like my luck has changed :)

  5. Sadly mine is also long gone! Definitely a pity as I would have spent hours playing with it now. Of course, my children would too :)!

  6. This treehouse is gorgeous! If you live in Perth then a Children’s store called stork’s corner in Myaree also stocks them. Hours of fun :-)

  7. I had one of these when I was a kid and spent hours playing with them. However I must say I am amazed at how expensive they now are. If you love treehouses have a look at the Calafant Tree House. A cardboard treehouse that you put together, decorate and then play. No scissors or glue needed. Google search Calafant Tree House. They are new to Australia, designed by a german cartoonist and only $29.95 – for an eco alternative tree house.

  8. I recently bought this for my daughter because I too have very fond memories of my childhood playing with this for hours on end. The toy is expensive at around $180 and I was shocked at the poor quality of all the pieces. It looks very cheaply made. I just hope it stands up to hours of play.

  14. I would seriously love this for my girls as I had one when i was a kid. However I find the price to be a bit extreme for something that dosn’t do much (except let the kids use there imagination). Such a shame, I have been looking for one for ages…

  15. I think quite the opposite Heidi – how wonderful to see a toy with no bells and whistles, which really lets children create their own new worlds and characters. This kind of imaginative play is shown to be very beneficial to children’s development :) If they are spoon-fed toys with pre-determined functions and personalities, then how do kids ever reach their full potential in terms of creating these things for themselves? That said, yes it’s an expensive toy, but holds a lot of nostalgia for parents! :)

  16. I totally agree Suzi about the imaginative play, as stated in my post. My issue was the price not that it dosn’t do anything. I had one as a kid and had hours of fun which is what i would love my kids to experience, however being in a single income family I find the price expensive and therefore I am unable to give my kids the joy I had…

  17. I was lucky to enjoy this toy as a child. Unfortunately, in my day…when you outgrew a toy it was passed down to younger cousins or friends and that is where mine went. I did purchase one a few years ago on ebay and are looking forward to watching my children play with it and enjoy it. I will enjoy playing with it again too! A delightful toy.

  18. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this tree house in a magazine. It was my tree house that I had as a kid and I loved playing with it and now its back, OMG!!!

  19. After this review I bought this for my three year old for Christmas. And I must say the quality has changed over 30 years. It is really really poor.

    The little people keep falling into the crack under the lift and I have to actually get a screw driver from the shed and pull it apart. It is cheap plastic, with only French instructions, you apply all the stickers yourself and hope for the best.

    This is not the toy I remember. At $195, it should be little more polished.

  20. I was so excited that Santa brought my little girl this tree however I have had to send it back to the elves as it is has too many sharp edges which would cut her mouth as she is putting everything in it. I also agree that for the money the quality is extremely poor and would certainly not last 30 years!!
    Lets hope the company takes these comments into consideration and improve on future makes BUT not charge us twice the price. :(

  21. I too have very fond memories of playing with this Treehouse toy… I am now 31 & it is in such good condition even though it was very “loved”. I brought mine home from my grandparents house when I had my daughter 5yrs ago… She loves playing with it almost more than I did!! I was considering buying her a new one, but after previous comments about the quality, I might re-think this as there’s nothing worse than not getting value for money :-)

  23. I can’t believe I’ve found this after so many years :-) I had this when I was about 6 (now 41) and I loved it so much I never forgot it. I used to play with it for hours too :) I have to have one, unfortunately I don’t have any girls ( just boys) but my youngest seems to like everything from cars and trucks to prams and dress up so that’s my excuse :-)

  24. I too had this amazing treehouse as a kid! I wish I could get my hands on one now!!!! Id play with it for hours with my girls! Such a great toy! dad to hear it has sharp edges. I guess as a child I never paid attention to the things I would now certainly notice as a mother. I still want one tho! such a fantastic toy! my love for treehouses continues! I recently had the privilege of staying at a gorgeous treehouse hotel in Washington! for anyone who loved Treehouses since they were a kid I highly recommend Treehouse Point!
