The Mad Dash 300 Bunny Wooden Children’s Playhouse – Our first impressions
This is a great small wooden playhouse which will delight the children no end. Constructed from hard wearing and long lasting wood, it will look good for years and be a welcome addition to your garden. This house has a gorgeous apex roof, functional stable door and small picket fence with pretty feature windows. Your children will be thrilled and it is very affordable too. With a cosy 4x4ft interior, your child and their friends can enjoy endless hours of fun, teddy bears picnics, secret meetings and playing house. The windows and stable door let light to fill the interior, whilst the child-safe glazing and fixed nature of the windows are great for safety. The picket-fenced garden area is a superb space for children to have a go at growing some flowers or even vegetables of their own, making it both fun and educational.
The Mad Dash 300 Bunny Wooden Children’s Playhouse: Questions you may have
Before making a decision on which playhouse you would like to buy for the little person in your life, you may have many questions regarding the suitability and safety of a particular model. Below the team at whatshed.co.uk discuss in detail the interesting features that this playhouse has and identify any areas or pieces that may cause you concern.
Playhouse: The 4x4ft interior provides a nice sized play area for smaller children looking for a home away from home all to themselves. With high quality, smooth timber that has rounded off edges, your child can play safely inside without the worry of splinters or sharp edges anywhere on the timber frame.
Windows and doors: With four windows and a large stable door, the playhouse interior is filled with light and allows fresh air to circulate throughout, discouraging any damp or mould to form. The windows are safety glazed and are fixed so do not open and therefore trapped fingers are not an issue. The charming stable door is child friendly and lightweight with a handle on the top half to allow easy opening. Care must be taken when opening and closing the doors as little fingers may become trapped.
Picket fenced area: The picket fenced area to the front of the playhouse is a lovely addition to the already wonderful main house. The fencing is tall enough to discourage small children from climbing on it and has rounded edges to prevent any accidents. The opening within the fence is large enough for easy access to and from the playhouse.
The Mad Dash 300 Bunny Wooden Children’s Playhouse: How easy to build?
Although the Bunny playhouse is full of interesting features for children, the assembly process is not more complex because of them. In fact, with an instruction booklet provided, including detailed instructions and easy-to-read diagrams, the assembly process is easy even for the most nervous of DIY hands. Your playhouse will be flat-packed and your package will contain all of the parts, fixtures and fittings required for assembly.
A basic set of tools will be required or are available to purchase separately. For safety reasons it is recommended that two people work on assembly together and we expect that the playhouse can be built within a few hours.

The Mad Dash 300 Bunny Wooden Children’s Playhouse: Our final thoughts
The Mad Dash Bunny playhouse is a wonderful first playhouse for children aged between 3-7 years. Due to its smaller size we feel that younger children will get the most use out of it, particularly with it being a very traditional style for them to enjoy many hours of imaginative play inside and outside in the picket-fenced garden. At this superb price the Mad Dash playhouses are at the lower end of the price range but offer fantastic quality for the money.
