Little Tikes Little Town playhouse – Our first impressions
This superb, innovative children’s playhouse will give the children and grandchildren simply hours of outdoor fun. Constructed from UV resistant plastic means that it will retain its good looks for years and not fade. It is low maintenance needing only a hose down to keep it clean. A cute little stable door and large windows make it bright and breezy inside and it is a colourful addition to the garden. There are plenty of additional features in and out including a petrol pump, phone and cash machine to mention a few – a great all round playhouse we think you’ll agree. Suitable for age 2 years +.
This playhouse provides a multitude of play options and could be anything that your child wanted it to be. The design gives a feeling of it being a town building more than a residential house, with many features and accessories to be enjoyed and creating many options for imaginative play for both boys and girls.
Little Tikes Little Town playhouse: How safe is it?
Due to the high quality, lightweight materials used in the construction of playhouses within the Little Tikes range, they are renowned for their safety features and constructed with the small child in mind at all times. With so many features aboard this particular playhouse, does it pose more safety issues than the rest of the range? Let’s find out. Below we discuss any safety concerns that parents might have.
Windows: The classic design of Little Tikes playhouses usually feature shutters, however this playhouse has open windows that cause no concern for trapped fingers. The windows are large enough for parents to see all aspects of the interior clearly but not large enough for even the smallest child to attempt to climb through.
Door: The stable door design is fantastic for small children, allowing them a full view of who has come to visit them. With the ability to open and close from the top or with the central handle, Little Tikes have done everything they can to prevent fingers from becoming trapped.
Accessories: This playhouse, due to its town building design, comes with many features for your child to enjoy, including a petrol pump, phone and cash machine, all of which pose no safety issues to your child. The petrol pump is on a cord; however the cord is shortened to prevent any accidents taking place. This playhouse also has a basket ball net and a mini football goal…how cooooool is that!!!
Overall, a wonderfully designed town building playhouse that includes many features yet is very safe for preschool children aged between 2 and 5 years and causes no issues for parental concern.
