Although pirate ships in bedrooms are swell, perhaps an outdoor version is more palatable. Fresh from the land of two-story reindeer is this playhouse, for which Hammacher Schlemmer is charging $27K. Measuring 23 feet high, the cedar/redwood/fir creation is "festooned with classic pirate-age decorations that compel exploration: a cutlass-bearing skeleton lashed to the bowsprit, a boarded-over cannonball hole, crossed bones that form a window pane, and a crow's nest with Calico Jack Rackam's Jolly Roger flag." There's also a couple of ladders, a trap door, a balcony, a fireman's pole, and a tunnel slide. Anything for the kids.
