I have recently renovated my garden. I needed it to be smart and tidy yet totally child friendly. My little ones are only small and so it was so important that they could play outside in a safe and fun environment.
Both me and my wife, scoured through catalogues and websites, looking for some outdoor toys that would not only be safe but also entertaining and amusing to the children.
When we saw this little tikes childrens playhouse on offer in our local b and q we were really impressed with it's bright colours. I liked it because when I think of playhouses, I think of pretty pink with little curtains at the window. I personally didn't want my son to have a playhouse like that. But this house was a mixture of light and dark greens with a bright yellow door and window. The roof was a really vivid red. Which was suitable for both boys and girls to play in.
We paid around £150 for this little tikes playhouse. We did think that this was a bit steep but were willing to pay this price as 'little tikes' has such a good reputation as a childs toy manufacturer. I thought it was worth paying the price for this house as it was sturdy, colourful and looked to me as if it would be long lasting.
The little tikes playhouse was delivered to my house within a few days. I was suprised to see how big the box it came in was. I was a little bit daunted when I had to put it together, but it was easy enough and had instructions that were easy to follow. So it took me around an hour to put together.
My children loved this palyhouse. It was hard to get them out of there in the evenings. They loved this little den. It gave them their own space and they loved it. What made me happy, was that everyday the playhouse would be turned into something different. One day it was a macdonalds and my son was using his bike to drive around and order food through to my daughter inside the house. Another day they took ages colouring in and making signs out of cardboard to turn the outside of this house into a grocery store. I was well impressed with the way in which the children used their imaginations to turn this house into different shops for their games.
We have had this playhouse for a while now. I am pleased with how sturdy it remains. The shutter on the window has come off a couple of times but has been placed back on with no trouble. It also really handy for storing the childrens garden toys in overnight. As it is made from plastic and is waterproof.
I am glad I bought this house for my children. It is safe and secure and I feel comfortable with them playing in this house. It has kept them amused for hours and hopefully will continue to keep them occupied for a while to come. I am also hoping that it will remain in good condition because I intend to sell it on and make some money back.
This colourful playhouse offers hours of fun and role play. Features working door and shutters. Decorate with stickers, included.
