This gorgeous plastic playhouse will keep your children or grandchildren entertained for hours on end. Made out of UV resistant plastic means that it will retain its good looks for years to come and not fade plus it is easy to keep clean just using the hose every now and again. The bright colours will look great even on a dull day. In a shade of yellow and with red functional shutters and front door finished off with a green red roof it’s guaranteed a winning choice. It is easy to assemble too meaning the children will be playing inside within minutes and this particular playhouse has added features such as a stable door and a magic ringing doorbell. Suitable for children age 2 +.
With its appearance of a little cottage in the woods, the textured walls made to look like a cobbled stone wall give this house a somewhat more realistic appearance than other playhouses. If this is what you are looking for then you are on to a winner.
Little Tikes Magic doorbell plastic playhouse: How safe is it?
Constructed with the typical Little Tikes sturdy, lightweight materials, this playhouse is a wonderful addition to your garden, but does it have any features that raise any safety issues? We discuss below any possible safety concerns.
Windows: The windows on this playhouse are completely open, apart from one shutter window feature to the side of the house. As with other Little Tikes playhouses, we can say that the shutters have an insert for little fingers to learn to open and close the shutters safely and with ease.
Door: The little stable door is a charming addition to this playhouse, and can be opened by holding the top of the door or there is a useful handle in the centre of the door, preventing children from potentially trapping their fingers when opening and closing.
Doorbell: The magic doorbell is a simple doorbell press function, creating no concern for safety whatsoever.
With this playhouse, the only downside is that not all of the interior space is visible from the outside for parental supervision; however, with no internal fixtures or fittings, there is nothing that could cause potential harm to your child. The playhouses simplistic construction and design ensures that you are purchasing a house that is safe for your child to enjoy and spend many hours in without the constant need for a watchful eye to be kept on them.
