The Mad Dash Lollipop Junior Tower Extra Wooden Playhouse: How safe is it?
The Mad Dash Lollipop Junior Tower Extra playhouse truly has a wow factor at first glance but is it suitable for your needs and garden? Here the team at whatshed.co.uk take a look at the fantastic features that this playhouse has to offer and address any safety concerns you may have before you make a final purchase decision.
Playhouse: With an impressive 7x12ft interior this playhouse is great for children of all ages but would particularly suit slightly older children looking for a playhouse with plenty of space and features. With a ladder, balcony and slide also included, this is a feature-rich playhouse that has much to offer the whole family.
Windows: The windows are small yet efficient at letting light into the playhouse interior. They are all fixed and do not have an open/close feature due to the height of the playhouse and potential safety issues.
Door: The double doors provide easy access in and out of the playhouse. During play it may be best to leave them open so when your child and their friends are running around inside and out on the balcony area, there is no obstacle in their way and no potential for accidents involving trapped fingers.
Balcony: The balcony area is a lovely feature on this playhouse and provides a nice lookout area into the garden, as well as a pathway from the ladder to the slide. The ladder is fixed to the balcony as to avoid any movement and accidents during play.
Slide: The slide is a wavy design for extra interest and is a good length for even older children to enjoy the ride. It is constructed from hard wearing plastic with a solid design incorporating raised sides for safety purposes.

The Mad Dash Lollipop Junior Tower Extra Wooden Playhouse: What is the overall quality like?
Mad Dash design and manufacture a range of playhouses that capture the imagination of little ones and help them learn the importance of spending time outdoors and a healthy and balanced lifestyle. The timber’s natural colour is very attractive and natural so it will blend into your garden with ease, however if your child wishes to paint and personalise their playhouse then that can be easily done due to the unfinished nature of the wood. The wood provides a rigidity and solid feel to the playhouse structure, giving us confidence that it will withstand whatever life throws at it, living a long life within your garden. A wood preservative treatment is recommended to protect the timber boards and panels against the elements as well as rot, damp and mould.
