It is fair to say that I spend a lot of time looking at wireless doorbell options! It was only a matter of time before my Son wanted in… and I had to start looking for the best wireless doorbell for a kids playhouse!
It did pose a few questions though…..
Before we start – here is a quick overview of the 3 best options.

Wireless Doorbell For Kids Playhouse – Top 3 Compared
What functionality do I need?
I say I NEED, but it isn’t strictly true! What functionality will my Son want for the wireless doorbell on his playhouse?
Any wireless doorbell for use on a kids playhouse needs to have lots of tunes to choose from! Not only that, the tunes need to be fun….and there definitely needs to be some Christmas tunes in there too!
Kids like big buttons. It looks more like a toy and is easier to use for little hands.
Another thing kids like is pretty lights, so why not make sure it has a flashing LED?
There is one option on this page (From Honeywell) that has the option to change the LED color! Does your Child have a favorite color? It is not a problem with the Honeywell!
Battery powered receiver
Ok, so this is one that I want! I want to be able to install the wireless doorbell into his playhouse WITHOUT the need for mains electric. That only leaves portable, battery-powered wireless doorbells.
3 Best Wireless Doorbell Options For A Kids Playhouse
This is the exact wireless doorbell that I have installed on my Sons playhouse.
I also have the plugin version for home too!
It is one of the best, cheap, dependable wireless doorbells and the portable option is perfect for a playhouse.
The 1byone has all the features you need:
IP44 rated push button – because it will need to be outside.
36 chimes, including Christmas music.
Portable chime unit, powered by 2 x 1.5AA batteries.
LED flash, because kids love lights!
I have had my 1byone for over 1 year and it works, perfectly, every time.
It is worth noting that the chime unit is not waterproof, so just make sure it doesn’t leave the playhouse and make sure you fix any leaks!
This wireless doorbell option has a very simple design and is excellent for a playhouse!
You can easily hook the receiver onto a wall using the screw provided, which means it has a place to stay and (hopefully) will not be moved outside to face the elements.
2 AAA batteries are needed for the receiver by the way…the setup could not be any easier….simply add the batteries and you are done!
The push button is the perfect size for small hands too because it gives them plenty to aim at!
The push button is also waterproof and rated to IP44, which is awesome for all kinds of rain.
The portable wireless doorbell receiver needs 3 x AA batteries for power. As they are not included you will need to purchase the batteries separately.
In terms of price, it is a very cheap option, which makes it a great choice for a playhouse.
The Honeywell portable wireless doorbell is more expensive than the 1byone and the Fosman above, but for the extra price, you get to add your own chime!
You can add in your own MP3s to use, along with the 8 wireless doorbell chimes that are already on the device. Speaking of chimes, the following are the 8 tunes you can choose from:
- Ding Dong
- Soft Alert
- Smart Sax
The Honeywell looks much better than the other options on this page, and kids will absolutely love the halo LED because you can change the alert color. Something that most wireless doorbells do not offer.
The push button is rated to IP44, which means it will work in all kinds of rain.
You can also add additional items to the Honeywell too, which means you can have a push button inside your home to call the kids in! If you are going to have a wireless doorbell for your kid’s playhouse, you might as well make it work for you too, right?
1 more wireless doorbell option for a kids playhouse
There is one more option, but it is a little more expensive than the options above because you have to buy two separate things.
First, you will need a Starpoint Receiver, which is a battery operated wireless doorbell receiver.
Then you will need a Starpoint waterproof transmitter because it will need to be protected from the elements!
These two will pair together to make a complete portable wireless doorbell for a kids playhouse.
How do you fit a wireless doorbell to a playhouse?
Fitting a wireless doorbell to a kids playhouse is just as easy as fitting one in your home.
Simply stick or screw the push button on to the door frame and hang the doorbell receiver inside with a few screws!
Some portable witless doorbells have a bracket, which means you will have to fix that to the playhouse wall to hang the receiver.
The options above are definitely the best choice if you are looking for a wireless doorbell for a kids playhouse.
You can find some of the options here on our wireless doorbell review page.
I must admit, it is a challenge to find a good, portable, battery-powered wireless doorbell, which is why I can only recommend the 3 options above!
As I have a plugin 1byone at home, it was easy to recommend it as the best option!
My Son absolutely loves going out and making pretend deliveries…..sometimes I am the homeowner, and sometimes I am the delivery man! At least it gets him outside for some fresh air.
