Carefully planned out to provide maximum entertainment for your kids, as soon as they enter a log cabin playhouse, they may never want to leave. Infact, from one gaze at the beautifully crafted doors and the multi-room designs, you may even want one of your own. Some log cabin playhouses are available with cottage style windows and that's not all, you can even include shutters and flower boxes to give the playhouse the classic charm as many old houses. This could even be a great way to get your children into gardening as you can give them the task of watering their own flowers on a daily basis. They may even loving it so much they'll do the whole garden for you!

With the original being built for Wendy in the story Peter Pan. Wendy houses can be a fun and safe place where children are able to make the most of being outdoors. Most noticeable by their classic verandahs and opening gates that welcomes any child who enters, it is no wonder why wendy houses are still popular today.

In the aim of ensuring ultimate strength, our wendy houses are made using 11mm thick, interlocking panels that help the outdoor building stay strong, whilst keeping out the rain. This is known as Tongue and Groove fittings.

Tower Playhouses

A tower playhouse could be the perfect choice for large or growing families. Despite the raised floor, tower playhouses offer a safe environment in which your children can be free to play and express themselves. It may also excite them knowing they have their own space in which their parents cannot easily access!

Designed using pre-engineered tongue and groove panels, the two storey playhouses are bound to last and provide your children with a safe play area as they utilise our strongest design. The Georgian style windows are also styrene which means they are highly unlikely to shatter even during the pirate battle or superhero vs villain fights. They also help provide the necessary sunlight to help the kids see their arts and crafts, and not forgetting helping the princesses get ready!

Playhouse Safety

To many parents the thought of your kids being in their own tiny house, may be a daunting thought. That's why we highly recommend adult supervision whenever one of our playhouses are used. However, in case this is not possible it may be reassuring to become aware of the fact our playhouses are safety tested to British standards BS-EN71 for domestic use. We also suggest keeping the playhouse at least 2m clear from structures or any obstructions. But, please bare in mind that our playhouses are not suitable for children aged under 36 months, especially as there may be small parts which could be potential choking hazards, there is often a maximum user weight of 50kg, and they are for outdoor use only.

Can I Build the Playhouse Myself?

If you are put off purchasing a playhouse by the thought of having to assemble the playhouse yourself, it may be reassuring to know that you are more than likely to be capable of building it yourself. This is due to the fact that most of our playhouses make use of a modular design for ease of assembly. Realistically, it should only take a few hours to put together as long as there is a minimum of two people contributing to the build.
