Let's Take a Closer Look...

Keter Rancho Plastic Playhouse – Our first impressions

It’s easy to put together as it slots in place and it’s brightly coloured. You are supplied with all the tools so no need to worry about assembling it. With a cute half door and arch shaped windows and a green apex roof this is an affordable choice which will last for years. This comes home delivered. It comes in Brown, Red, White or Pink.

Keter Rancho Plastic Playhouse: How safe is it?

Keter Rancho Plastic Playhouse GreenOverall we have to give credit to the team that designed the keter playhouse range. Keter have a lot of experience in designing and manufacturing plastic playhouses. As such and as you can imagine they have done their best to make safety their highest priority. According to the instruction manual this range of playhouses are sold in over 16 different countries. As such you can imagine the different number of safety regulators that they need to satisfy in order to get safety approvals for a playhouse suitable for two year olds and up.

Our overall impressions where we looked more closely at this were the fact that we found no sharp corners where a child could hurt itself. We were also fairly impressed with the chunky windows and doors that were nice and rounded at the edges. Unfortunately little fingers have a habit of getting trapped. This keter playhouse has done its best to try to minimise the possibility of these little fingers getting trapped. Due to the light chunky construction you would have to try particularly hard to cause an accidental injury. Having said that if you have an older brother that is intent on making a younger sibling cry we can’t promise it will not cause harm. So overall for safety we feel we can give this a big thumbs up, it’s one safe playhouse.

Keter Rancho Plastic Playhouse: How easy to build?

Keter Rancho Plastic Playhouse PinkIf only most things you build in your garden were as easy and fast to assemble as this. Seriously this is one easy to assemble playhouse. As with all the keter playhouse range, this one consists of a series on interlocking plastic parts that are held tight with thick plastic bolt like screws.

You only need to assemble six main bits (the four walls and two roof sections). This could easily be assembled by one adult. To help you see how easy it is to assemble we thought we would give you a link to the official instructions for the Keter Rancho Plastic Playhouse.

Keter Rancho Plastic Playhouse: What is the overall quality like?

To be absolutely honest we have never had an issue with any Keter products. Overall they
are very sturdy and very very robust! The Rancho Playhouse is no exception. The plastic is made of thick material that gives it a very very solid feel, let’s put it this way your little monkeys will feel very safe clambering over this and you should feel very confident it will not bend, brake or deform.

Keter Rancho Plastic Playhouse: Our final thoughts

Overall we think this is fantastic value for money. You will easily get years of fun out of this playhouse and as its plastic its maintenance free. You can easily store it in the garden over winder and then just wash it off ready for the summer. Without a doubt this gets our unanimous thumbs up!

    I bought this for my 2 kids. They have a blast in it. I just wish it was a little bigger but my kids don’t seem to mind. It was a breeze to put this playhouse together. It is nice, but a little pricey. Once my kids grow out of this one, I am ordering from the same site to get a bigger one for them. My kids are adventurous and love to be outdoors, so they need to have something like this outside at all times.

    My grandson spends a lot of time on our farm, so I wanted to get him something he could enjoy outside. I also wanted it lightweight, so we could move it around. This playhouse was the ideal thing. His eyes lit up when he received it on his birthday. He still falls sometimes and this playhouse has rounded corners in case one of them moments happen when he’s playing. I like the durability of the hard plastic. I foresee it lasting years. I will be buying my other grandkids one from the company. I like the customer service they have. I got treated very well as a customer should.

      Corrine,

      It is really that lightweight? I have been looking for something lightweight for my grandkids as well in case we have to manuever it around. Sounds like you really like this playhouse. I am buying it now because of your review. Thanks so much

    This fun house is not only cheap but it is also made of good, long lasting material – plastic. I loved getting this for my 3 year old daughter just as much as she loved playing with it. It is amazing how easy it is to set up. You can pretty much build the whole thing blindfolded.

    The downside here is that it is not big enough for more than 2 kids to fit in. The small size is also a good thing because I can move it around the house and back in our yard. Even my little daughter can move it to the next room with little effort. The setup is sturdy so I don’t worry about it falling apart.

    Last year when I took my little kid to a park, she fell from the swing and hurt her head. My husband is really protective of our children and called for an immediate ‘no going to the park any more’. Of course this was a shock to me and my kid. So we thought of an alternative for a park. The best option we came across was this playhouse thankfully. We bought it last month and my daughter loves it really well. It gives me great pleasure in watching my kid playing happily with no worries and more importantly, with great safety.

    My sister’s kids all had a playhouse growing up. My son is 1 year old as of last week, and I want to get him one of these for his 2nd birthday. I know I will love it for my son because I seen the one that my sister had for her kids and it was well put together. I didn’t even see anything bad with it. I think it is a great starter playhouse for any child.

    I just bought one of these for my 2 kids. They have been playing in it non-stop. I am glad I found something that both of my young children can play with. Usually they are fighting over something or not liking the same thing. I got it right this time with this keter rancho plastic playhouse. The quality is just fantastic. It is easy to maneuver if I ever ned to move it as well.
