An ideal first playhouse to start their journey in the world of make-believe, this Shire Playhut’s smart and simple modern design is a great first step towards independent play. And with safety features included as standard at a wonderfully low price, the kids aren’t the only ones who love it.
Unlike other playhouses in this price bracket, the Playhut comes with a floor included, providing stability and extra insulation for your convenience. There’s no compromising on the window either, as it opens and has joinery-style Georgian bars and a window stay for just the right temperature. Both the window and door open with piano hinges, a great safety feature to protect little fingers. There’s also environmentally-friendly styrene window panes, shatter resistant and safer than traditional glass, for extra peace of mind.
The Shire Playhut Playhouse is made from a high-grade shiplap pine in a sturdy tongue and groove construction, meaning it is better sealed from the elements, as well as making it more aesthetically pleasing. The floor and roof are constructed from solid sheet Oriented Strand Board (OSB).
This Shire playhouse is supplied with a dip-treated base coat as standard, with a top coat available as an option for a stronger and golden brown finish. The Playhut does not come pre-painted, giving you a blank canvas to tailor to the children’s desires. The manufacturer recommends applying a water-based top coat of your choice, preventing the timber from weathering and therefore making the playhouse last longer.
The Shire Playhut Playhouse is supplied flat-packed for ease of handling and assembly. All fittings and felt are included in the price, with clear, easy-to-follow instructions, though you can choose to add assembly if desired.
