Either inside or out, playhouses are a great source of fun and amusement for kids, giving them their own special place sized just for them.
Inflatable playhouses are a great idea for a non-permanent space that can be used either indoors or outside in the garden. Step2 offers a basic inflatable playhouse in two colour schemes: the Pink & Purple Playhouse or the log-cabin coloured Adventure Fort. With a large interior spaces and opening side walls, these playhouses deflate and store easily to convert your living room from playtime to guest-ready, or when it’s necessary to bring them inside during bad weather. And at a reasonable price, this playhouse won’t break the bank.
For an updated classic check out the Tikes Town Playhouse by Little Tikes. Depending on your available interior space, this area for imagination could also be used indoor or out and provides a sturdier, more permanent presence than the inflatable option. Though you’ll need a larger budget for this one, this durable playhouse comes equipped with four different areas to encourage play, including a sports wall, grocery store and bank wall, a petrol station wall, and a school house wall.
If you’d like a more permanent presence in the garden have a look at the playhouses from Mercia. These natural wooden playhouses are built for all types of weather and are like little homes for your children. Ranging from widely in price, you can get a Mercia playhouse in a variety of styles, choosing from playhouses elevated on stilts, ones that come with slides, or the classics that rest on your garden floor.
