The Command Post from Shire is an ideal playhouse for kids who love playing battle games. The gun ports allow defence of the stronghold with water pistols or foam dart guns, while the windows provide observation points to target the enemy from the safety of the fort. Ensure hours of imaginative play with this playhouse, as children fight mock battles to take control of the Command Post.
The walls of the Shire Command Post Playhouse are constructed using high-quality planed softwood in a sturdy tongue and groove shiplap pattern, making this fort well-sealed from the elements, as well as invaders! The timber used is continental slow-grown wood, meaning a tighter grain, extra strength and longer life when compared to the fast-grown timber used on cheaper playhouses from other manufacturers. The floor is also built with tongue and groove boards, and the roof is made from Oriented Strand Board (OSB) with roofing felt included.
Kids love rough battle games, but no one likes it when things end in tears. That’s why we’ve incorporated important safety features into this playhouse to protect the children as they play. The three fixed windows are glazed with environmentally-friendly shatter resistant styrene, a safer alternative to glass, and both opening ports, as well as the door, are fitted with safety hinges to prevent trapped fingers. So with no need to worry, now it’s just up to the kids whether the enemy will be held at bay with foam or water, or allowed to retreat to safety!
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 Command Post 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 Command Post 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.
