Children’s playhouses – our pick of the best

10 images

A children’s playhouse is a fabulous way to keep little ones entertained, encouraging them to create their own adventures in the garden. Whether it’s your child’s secret den, fairytale castle or log cabin, it’s great way for children to enjoy imaginative playtime outside – ensuring hours of fun without having to leave home. Playhouses can be quite sophisticated, some of the wooden playhouse designs come complete with raised platforms, ladders, verandas and even mezzanine levels inside! Choose from pretty painted houses complete with a slide and balcony, colourful plastic designs, classic wigwam tents and cotton playhouses that can be used inside or out. It’s a good idea to look for safety features on windows and doors too, to protect those little hands. Enjoy our edited selection of the best buys on the market, to help you choose the children’s playhouse that’s just right for your mini adventurers.
