Let's Take a Closer Look...

The Mad Dash Junior Log Cabin: Our first impressions

Now this is a playhouse! Designed as a stunning log cabin you’ll find it hard not to take over the children’s fun. As well as being a children’s playhouse no doubt it makes a real focal point in any garden such is its charm and good looks. It has so much going from it, from the handmade stable door, three large fixed windows complete with shutters either side, a veranda and cute window boxes, the children will be over the moon with their new hideaway. It’s a light and natural design and there is good height. Not recommended for children under 36 months. Finally, you will agree this is a great value playhouse. To add a little personality and fun to your new playhouse why not paint and decorate both on the exterior and interior. Your child will love choosing their favourite colour to paint and will get a unique looking playhouse that will stand out from the rest.

The Mad Dash Junior Log Cabin: How safe is it?

In this section the team at whatshed.co.uk have a more detailed look at the different aspects and features of the playhouse that may be of interest to parents and carers looking to purchase the best playhouse within their budget for the little person in their life. We understand that safety is a major factor when purchasing a product for younger children in particular; therefore we take a look at any safety issues which may be of concern pre-purchase.

The Mad Dash Junior Log Cabin Wooden Playhouse 6 X 6 inside viewInterior: The 6x6ft wooden interior provides a fantastic space for young children to play, to daydream and to share and make wonderful memories with both friends and family. With an apex roof and enough height to allow small children to stand up fully inside comfortably.

Windows: The windows to the side and to the front of the playhouse are large enough to fill the interior with light but small enough to allow a sense of privacy whilst inside. The windows are fixed and therefore do not open, avoiding potential accidents involving trapped fingers.

Doors: The stable doors are constructed from a high quality yet lightweight timber that allows small children to enter and exit the playhouse with ease. The handles on both parts of the door allow children to open the doors safely, however, as with any stable door, care should be taken to avoid small fingers becoming trapped where the two doors meet.

Veranda: The wrap-around veranda offers a fantastic timber decking surrounding the playhouse for decorative items, pot plants or toys. Care should be taken as small children may forget that there is a step down from the veranda.

The Mad Dash Junior Log Cabin: How easy is it to build?

The Mad Dash Junior Log Cabin Wooden Playhouse 6 X 6Mad Dash recommends that two people work together to assemble the junior log cabin, not only for safety reasons but also due to the size and many aspects and accessories to consider. Your playhouse package will be delivered to your door flat-packed and containing all the parts, fixtures and fittings required ready for assembly. With a set of basic tools in hand and the set of detailed and easy-to-follow instructions provided, assembly should be straightforward and we expect that this playhouse could be assembled within a day.

The Mad Dash Junior Log Cabin: What is the overall quality like?

Mad Dash is committed to designing and manufacturing products for children and their family and friends to enjoy. The superb craftsmanship and high quality materials with which this playhouse is expertly constructed are evident in the sturdiness of the structure once assembled. The junior log cabin is available to purchase with either 19mm or 28mm interlocking tongue and groove log boards depending on which aesthetic you prefer for your playhouse. We think that the light timber provides a natural look to allow the playhouse to blend into your garden, however if your child has grand plans for personalising the playhouse then the unfinished timber can be painted. A preservative treatment will need to be applied to ensure longevity of the timber, making sure that the playhouse will be enjoyed for many years to come in your garden.

The Mad Dash Junior Log Cabin: Our final thoughts

If you are looking for a playhouse that combines a classic log cabin style with high quality construction and a sturdiness that will let it be enjoyed for many years to come, then the junior log cabin could be just the playhouse you have been searching for. With charming features including a stable door, veranda and window flower boxes, many hours of fun will be had in this gorgeous playhouse. There are less expensive playhouses on the market, however we feel that the price point is a true reflection of the quality.

    I can’t believe how spacious this little log cabin is. My little tykes love it! It is really their little hideaway. I have a 4 year old and a 3 year old. They play so well together, especially when they are having fun. I can’t get over how many laughs they share in this cabin. It looks just like a small house. They always tell people about their secret house ever since they got this. The price was the best we have found when it came to playhouses. Having a little log cabin is better than a normal playhouse.
