My little girl loves this play house a little over priced for your money but a lot better than most out there
I bought this Whacky Penthouse for my sons to give them somewhere to play in the garden and give them a bit of variety and I must say that I'm so glad I did. It came in loads of boxes but all of the big pieces were already in one piece (door attached, window in etc) so they just needed screwing together. The stilts to make it a penthouse took a while to get together but the house went up in no time. Just over an hour in total which I thought was great. I love that it's different to other playhouses, with stilts to take it off the ground. The steps to get up are strong and sturdy with handles to make it safe. The slide is fab and gives my sons an added extra to play on. There is loads of space inside and the many windows bring in loads of light, it's even better that the windows open too. I like the cute extra bits though, the letter box that my sons store a key in for pretend play, flower boxes which can hold real flowers and the chimney which just gives it that cute cottage feel. My sons love it and spend most of the days in there now, playing, reading and crafting. It will be something that they love for years to come.

We bought this playhouse for our granddaughter who is months old. It arrived exactly on time and well packed, but once we got everything sorted out we got got the building looking good in an hour. To complete the overall build took 3of us about 4 hours, which was longer than suggested, but very satisfying. It does really need an electric screwdriver and a few normal hand tools, which assist the finish. To see our grandaughters face when we were finished was a delight, she immediately went to explore the house and took pleasure opening doors and windows, and looking out at us. She has quickly claimed the house as hers, and had to be bribed out of it with her favourite tea, before bedtime. Overall a lovely product, and much fun. David Wilding

Very good. It did not take too long to erect/construct and though the instructions were minimal I was able to follow them easily. The trick is to count out and separate the screws first and then it appears to make more sense. My 2 year old son loves it and regularly insists on having his lunch there! His older siblings also have spend much more time in and around this attractive green and white house than I ever expected them to. It is in a sunny spot even in the winter so feels relatively snug even at this time of year. Very happy with this purchase.

I’m really pleased with this playhouse, it’s good quality and more interactive than others I’ve seen with its post box, chalk board and flower boxes. It was easy to put together using an electric screwdriver, we followed the instructions which said to build the house separately before lifting it onto the platform...I would recommend building it straight onto the platform instead as it’s very heavy. Customer service was brilliant, had lots of updates regarding delivery. The only thing I’d change would be to put gaps around the door/windows to prevent little fingers from getting caught as opening and shutting them is a real novelty for my 18 month old. We bought the steering wheel to go on the veranda which my son absolutely loves using too.
