Don’t these SmartPlayhouses make you want to go back in time? The pint-sized abodes will give you an appreciation for architecture at a very young age, provided you have parents rich enough to buy you one.

They come in four different styles. Above is the mid-century modern Illinois House—a tiny copy of the Farnsworth House, the Chicago home designed by legendary architect Mies van der Rohe. Then there’s the Kyoto House, which takes cues from Japanese avant garde style. We’ve actually featured a few houses recently that look like they’d fit next door to this one if they shrunk to a tenth of their size.

The Hobikken sounds like a couch you’d buy at Ikea, but it’s also a tiny Scandinavian-inspired playhouse.

Then lastly, there’s the Casaforum model, a steel-clad crib with leaf-like shapes printed on the outside. These Architectural Playhouses Make You Want To Be a Kid Again

These little houses are so awesome, and they start at $5,000. Unfortunately they don’t come in adult sizes. [SmartPlayhouses via Design-Milk]
