The Mad Dash Wendy House Peardrop Extra Children’s Wooden Playhouse – Our first impressions
When looking for a Mad Dash Playhouse this should exceed your expectations. Perfect for children 3+ this playhouse is a beauty. Complete with feature windows with shutters and window boxes, a small picket fence, apex roof and a generous front door you won’t be able to get the children out! The playhouse is constructed from strong and durable wood and there is a sturdy ladder so the children can get up to the second floor of the house with ease. You can customise it to your own specification with paint but either way this will look gorgeous in any garden. The charming window boxes and picket-fenced garden area provide space for your child to start enjoying growing their own flowers and vegetables. The little garden area to the front of the playhouse not only gives your child a little garden of their very own but also extends their play space, offering more room to enjoy their favourite activities.
The Mad Dash Wendy House Peardrop Extra Children’s Wooden Playhouse: How safe is it?
Looking at traditional single storey playhouses that are simple in design and suitable for a range of ages is one matter but if you are thinking of purchasing a double storey playhouse then a range of questions and concerns may enter your mind on the suitability of the product for your child. Here at whatshed.co.uk we take a more detailed look on the many features that this particular model has to offer you and your child whilst also addressing any concerns you may have in regards to safety and suitability.
Playhouse: The Mad Dash Wendy House has a spacious 6x7ft floor area, doubled over two storeys to make a playhouse that is great for children of ages and their friends to enjoy. The raised level is accessed by a ladder that is fixed both at the bottom and top to ensure a safe climb up and down. Care must be taken with younger children to ensure that they learn how to come up and down the ladder safely and supervision may be required whilst they use the raised level.
Windows: The pretty windows are adorned with both decorative shutters and charming window boxes. Safety has been taken into consideration here as the windows do not open and the shutters are fixed to the wall and purely decorative, therefore any issues of small fingers becoming trapped have been avoided.
Door: The tall door is full size and is lightweight for children to enter and exit the playhouse easily enough. Although a handle is present on the door, care must be taken when a group of children are playing together that the door is handled with care otherwise trapped fingers may be an issue.
Picket-fenced area: The enclosed garden area to the front of the playhouse is structured with a charming picket fence. The fencing is very safe for children with edges both smoothed and rounded to make play time safe within this area.
The Mad Dash Wendy House Peardrop Extra Children’s Wooden Playhouse: How easy to build?

The high quality, thick timber is weather resistant and will protect the interior from rot, damp and mould.

Due to the unfinished nature of the wood, it is entirely possible to paint your playhouse if you wish to do so.
