More About Kids Garden Playhouses
If your children want to play House, where better than a kids’ playhouse? Whether it’s a wooden outdoor playhouse or a plastic Wendy house, playing in the garden is always fun when they have a space all their own.
Plastic Vs. Wood playhouses
Which is better, plastic or wood? It entirely depends on you. A wooden Wendy house is traditional, smart and looks like a real home adding an extra touch to your games, but a plastic outdoor playhouse can be super bright and colourful too.
A Wooden playhouse
• Can be painted fun colours
• Can be More realistic
• More expensive
• Less mobile
• The wood needs care and looking after
A Plastic playhouse
• Can be moved around the garden
• Totally weather resistant
• Easy to clean
• Not as strong
• Not as realistic
• Not as big
Why are they called Wendy houses?
They’re only really called that in the UK because of J.M.Barrie – the author of Peter Pan. In the play, he called the house that the lost boys build around Wendy Darling, Wendy’s House.
The house (or tent as it was in the production) being erected so quickly was such a popular part of the play that toy manufacturers began making replicas, and thus, the British Playhouse was renamed forever.
How big are playhouses?
Playhouses can be any size really, from small toddler ones, to large constructions similar to summer houses.
There are planning permission rules to adhere to with any ‘building’ in your garden, so if you’re building your own, make sure you have a look, and any commercially-made children’s playhouse will built to adhere to all these guidelines, so purchasing a pre-made one may be easier.
