* In the original text of ''Literature/PeterPan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up'', Wendy, John and Michael play house in the nursery at the beginning of the play. Of course, the entire play ends up being a prolonged game of house with Wendy being the mother and all the Lost Boys and Peter being her children.

* Shizuru and Tomoe did this a few times near the end of ''Anime/MaiOtome''. [[FetishFuel When two grown women play house, it's not quite as innocent as usual.]] [[DieForOurShip Shizuru X Natsuki shippers were not amused.]]

* ''Series/{{Community}}'': When Jeff hosts a party at his apartment, Annie comes over early to "help decorate," and immediately turns his LonelyBachelorPad into something that looks like the colorful and well-loved home of a married couple. Jeff rolls his eyes and asks if they have to have another talk about her trying to play house with him--[[ShipTease but he still helps her with the set everything up]]. When their friends come over, they immediately compliment Annie's decorating skills.

Sometimes InnocentCohabitation will jokingly be called "playing house" as the cohabitors fall into the roles of a married couple without the full benefits of same. It can also be used as a mocking euphemism for non-innocent cohabitation- the implication being that the relationship needs a legal marriage before it counts as real. (It's a more upscale version of the term: "shacking up")

* ''Webcomic/BadMachinery'': Mildred and Lottie pretend that their Wendy House (playhourse) has maintenance issues their friend Jack needs to fix. Mildred's mum lampshades that they're a bit old for this game. (They're covering up that they've converted the building into a skate ramp and are charging the neighborhood kids to use it.)

* WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}: The episode [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "Let's Play House"]] has the characters play with Kaeloo as the mother, Mr. Cat as the father, Quack Quack as [[DraggedIntoDrag the daughter]] and Stumpy as the son. Unfortunately, it all goes [[DysfunctionalFamily horribly wrong]], as usual.
