October is here already. The best summer in years is finally over and we will all mourn its passing. As we start to hibernate inside our homes and head into a blustery autumn we will look back in fondness at all the cherished memories we made outside in that glorious sunshine. We will remember it as the first summer holidays in which children never moaned about being bored. The weeks of blue skies and endless sunshine allowed the kids to live outdoors. We were able to sun bathe out in the garden while watching the kids run around and play games, we even sometimes joined in. Little girls ran around the garden catching butterflies, making daisy chains and playing 'Mummies and Daddies' inside their cute playhouses. Little boys climbed trees and towers, teetered about on bikes and ran around the garden with water sneaking up to the playhouse to soak their sister inside. As October comes the children will be reluctant to leave the playhouse alone in the garden. As they sit in school in their new crisp clean school uniform (which won’t last for long), they will have smiles plastered across their healthy tanned faces because they have had an enjoyable summer spent outside. Your children and you will have created many memories of playing in the playhouse out in the garden.
Even as the temperature starts to drop and you can start to see your breath on a gloomy chilly morning, your playhouse doesn’t have to go neglected. Let your children don their woolly hats, scarves and mittens. Bundle them up in layers upon layers of snuggly jumpers and warm winter coats and throw them outside to enjoy the brisk winter air! A Playhouse can be just as fun in the winter as the summer. It can become a shelter for your children when playing out in the cold, a base to plan the strategic snowball attack from, and a home with a make-believe roaring fire and big fat turkey roasting in the oven. A Playhouse can fuel your children’s imagination outside all year round.
My name is Luke I am the new office apprentice. My recent duties within my job role have included close work with all the projects displayed on the playhouse website which has given me better knowledge of the playhouses that are offered.
My favourite playhouse is Playhouse with castle platform PC110553. The bold and contrasting colours appeal to me because it makes the structure eye-catching and it’s different to the usual colours that would be found on an average playhouse. The house alongside the castle platform and the slide offer endless amount of ideas for different games and fun. I also like the size of the project as it gives children space to run around and be active and it is big enough for adults for those days when friends can’t come to play. This structure is suited for more than one child which encourages play with fellow siblings or friends.
It’s suitable for all-weather conditions which means no more boring rainy days which I remember to be the longest of days when I was younger. I also love the fact that everything is raised at 4 foot high as this makes the playhouse more adventurous and it provides a perfect setting for ‘hide and seek’ and other childhood games.
I would add some more active fun accessories such as a scramble net and a climbing wall as this would make the playhouse even more adventurous and would add more entries to the platform.
This playhouse project has a lot to keep kids entertained and due to the contrasting earthy colours it makes it a fitting asset to any garden.

My Favourite Playhouse is the Octagonal Playhouse with slide PC080482. This may seem an odd choice for a girl, as the playhouse has a very boyish feel to it, especially finished in sadolin classic rosewood. You can just imagine a group of boys hiding out in it, plotting boyish pranks and playing hide and seek. However it is this boyish charm which I find so appealing.
When I was younger I was a tomboy. I loved playing outdoors, climbing trees and making dens. This Playhouse is perfect for a boy or a more adventurous girl. It really does resonate that exploratory feel, making it the perfect secret base, for any child to plan the day’s activities or hide away from “enemies”.
The octagonal tower shape and rosewood colour, make this playhouse look great at the bottom of anybody’s garden, especially nestled in amongst some trees. This playhouse has two windows on the ground floor and three windows on the first floor. The octagonal window is particularly good for peering out of and surveying the garden for approaching “foes”. Then if needed, they can make a quick escape out the door on the first floor and down the slide. This Playhouse really inspires adventure.
This Playhouse doesn’t have that stereotypical dainty playhouse look, but this is what makes it my favourite.
