How to choose children’s playhousesChoosing the perfect playhouse for your children can be difficult. There are so many different brands and styles to sift through and choose from. Plastic playhouses are a common style. They are durable, brightly coloured designs and are just the thing for younger children. Whether you opt for a cottage, a log cabin, or their very own castle so they can play kings and queens, these plastic playhouses are easy to keep clean. All you need to do is give them a wipe down with a wet cloth, hose them down with the garden hose, or give them a blast with a pressure washer. Wooden playhouses are a more permanent fixture in your garden. Where plastic playhouses can be moved or upgraded, wooden ones are less easy to do so. But that being said, a wooden playhouse is magical in its own right. It’s much more eco-friendly and can offer lots of customisation options such as painting and staining the natural wood. Cardboard playhouses are perfect for using in a bedroom or lounge as they can be put up and collapsed really easily. Most designs offer the ability for your little ones to draw and paint them in any way they like so they also double as a fun craft project for a rainy day. The disposable nature of these children’s playhouses also means they are a very affordable option. When you’re choosing your children’s playhouse, think about all the various extras that they can come with. Some include a built-in kitchen, others feature beautiful shutters and door designs while others still come complete with their own mini white picket fence or workbench. There are so many options to choose from and the finer details are dependent on what your children love. Once you’ve picked up the perfect playhouse, don't be surprised if they tell you they'll be moving out into the garden full-time!
