The Mad Dash Lollipop Max Tower Xtra Wooden Playhouse: How safe is it?
From the pictures, it’s fair to say we all agree, this particular playhouse looks fantastic and so much fun for younger children. However, sometimes the more features and excitement a product has the more of a safety hazard it can pose to children. Below we take an in-depth look at some of the features that may cause concern to parents when it comes to safety.
Height: As this playhouse is on stilts and therefore raised from the ground, we understand that parents may be concerned, especially where young children are concerned. There both a ladder and slide where children can enter and exit the house, all connected to a long balcony on the front of the house. We find that with this type of equipment, they are very safe as long as children are taught the correct way to use the ladder and slide. Naturally parental supervision may still be required for children at the lower end of the recommended age range.
Windows: The windows have been cleverly designed to allow fresh air into the playhouse but prevent anything or anyone climbing through them. With no shutters or open and shut features, parents can be assured that trapped fingers are not a concern here.
Door: The door is made of a lightweight timber and although there is a potential for small accidents involving fingers, the risks are minimal.
Balcony: The balcony is fenced at a sensible height to prevent any falls.
Ladder and slide: Both the ladder and slide are securely fixed to the playhouse structure so prevent any accidents from occurring.
Overall, we feel that this playhouse has been designed with child safety in mind and all the features have been well thought out to provide a safe environment for play.
