The Mad Dash 400 Lollipop Wooden Playhouse – Our first impressions
This gorgeous wooden playhouse will keep children entertained for hours. Constructed from hard wearing and long lasting wood and with an apex roof and pretty windows this is a stunning addition to any garden, adults will find it hard not to want to explore too! It is also paintable in a colour you know the children will adore so you can tailor it to your exact specification too. Available with many optional extras and at an affordable price it’s a wonderful gift for the kids. The picket fenced area will encourage children to enjoy their natural surroundings as well as learning to grow their own flowers and/or vegetables. With the 6x7ft interior the playhouse is large enough for slightly older children as well as younger children to enjoy with friends. The hardwearing wood will withstand even the harshest of weathers to last many years to come in your garden.
The Mad Dash 400 Lollipop Wooden Playhouse: How safe is it?
When looking to purchase a playhouse for your child we understand that your primary concern is safety during playtime. At whatshed.co.uk we have a further look in detail at the features that this playhouse has to offer and help you make an informed choice when it comes to deciding on the best playhouse model for your child.
Playhouse: The 6x7ft interior space provides a fantastic play area for children, both boys and girls, of a variety of ages. The rounded and smoothed timber provides a comfortable and safe environment in which children can enjoy many hours of imaginative play and fun.
Windows: The very real looking windows give the interior a light and airy feel. Without an open and close feature they are very safe, preventing trapped fingers, whilst letting children enjoy looking out into the garden.
Door: The door has a half glazed appearance, again allowing floods of light inside whilst adding some privacy to the interior. The door handle allows children to easily open and close the door whilst discouraging them putting their fingers on the edge of the doors and possibly becoming trapped.
Picket-fenced area: The picket fenced area provides a fantastic area of extra living space for your child to make their own. The picket fence itself is rounded and smoothed, whilst being at a sensible height to discourage children from trying to climb over it.
The Mad Dash 400 Lollipop Wooden Playhouse: How easy to build?
Your Mad Dash playhouse will arrive directly to your door in a flat-packed package, with all the panels, roofing, fencing, fixtures and fittings required for an easy assembly. For safety reasons Mad Dash recommends that a team of two people assemble the playhouse, however if your only option is to assemble it yourself then that should be entirely doable. With a basic tool kit and the set of helpful and detailed instructions provided, we think that this model could be built within a day.
The Mad Dash 400 Lollipop Wooden Playhouse: What is the overall quality like?
Just because the Mad Dash playhouse is a house for playtime doesn’t mean that it takes quality of construction and use of materials any less seriously. The high quality timber used and sturdy framing means that the playhouse structure has a rigidity to it that gives it a solid feel. With a timber preservative treatment having been applied to the exterior, the wood is both weather resistant and will last for many years to come. To maintain your playhouses’ smart appearance you may wish to give it a clean every now and then, particularly in the winter months when it may get dirty. A simple hose down with water will suffice for the timber exterior and a soapy solution with a sponge will make those windows sparkle too. Why not give your playhouse a touch of personality by painting it a colour, either to match other items within your garden or to give it a style of its very own.
