Offering children the chance to have an adventure safely, wooden wendy houses are an investment which will stand up to many years of fun. Prompting role play and imaginative play, they are a worthwhile addition to any garden, allowing children their own sense of space and somewhere to hold tea parties, hang out with their friends and act as a base for exploring.
A playhouse knows no age limits and some even grow with children, making them ideal for pre-schoolers learning about play, but equally suitable for older children who need somewhere that's their own.
Benefits of playhouses
Encouraging a range of skills including effective communication, turn-taking, sharing and conversation, a good garden playhouse becomes an extension of the home and allow children freedom to find their own place in the world and most importantly, have fun! Older children can play a part in choosing their own playhouse and decorating it if applicable.
Construction and features
Most garden playhouses are constructed using interlocking, rot-resistant systems making them safe and secure. Easy to build, paint and weather treat, they are designed to last through harsh winters and glorious summers alike. With proper floors, doors, windows and roofs, draughts and moisture are kept at bay, keeping the interior warm and cosy.
There are a whole host of options available from dinky houses right through to multi-story ones with slides and other play equipment attached, meaning there is something for every taste and budget. Giving little people the opportunity to develop friendships and learn about the world from safe confines, a well built and good quality miniature house can bring back elements of traditional play and help form memories which will last for many years to come.
