Big Wooden Wendy Houses Selection, July '17

Invest in these for years of children's play

A big play house made of wood might cost a bit more, but it is a sturdier option that will take years of outdoor play and provide an extra outdoor space for your kids.

Garden Games Limited Crooked Mansion Pre Painted Wooden Play House

This wooden wendy house is detailed and looks like a cottage in the woods somewhere. It is a screw-together job, pre-painted, so it should cut down on the amount of manual labour you have to put in yourself. Big enough to fit an adult, going by the dimensions, its doors and windows open and have soft close magnets to keep little fingers from getting too trapped. According to reviews it looks great, but might need some extra holes drilled, but over all it's an attractive play house for any kid!
  • Pre-painted, pre-drilled, screw together assembly
  • No base, will rest directly on the floor or grass
  • 180 cm wide, 120 cm deep, 183 cm high
  • Recommended age range 36 months - 10 years
  • Constructed with premium fir wood and eco- and child-friendly staining

Rowlinson Playaway

This wendy house is like a summer house in miniature, and is great for several children to play with at the same time, within reason. A couple of complaints about quality, but overall this is a good wendy house for the price.

6x6 Honeypot Dutch Barn Wooden Playhouse - Safety Tested, Shiplap Cladding - By Waltons

A bit of a behemoth, this barn style wood play house is big all right. It's roughly 6 foot in every direction, so big enough for lots of kids or even an adult. Probably could be used as a storage shed too.

  • EN71 European safety standard compliant
  • shatterproof styrene windows, gaps around doors for fingers
  • Treated wood, but unpainted so you can add your own colour scheme
  • Unable to deliver to certain regions of the UK, so do check before ordering!

Wooden playhouse Hobikken Junior

I'm including this one just for fun as there's no way on earth I'd be able to afford it, but if you have a cutting edge Nordic theme you want to carry over to your wendy house, check this one out!
  • 153 cm x 153 cm x 170 cm, 190 Kg
  • Made of birch plywood
  • Ridiculously chic Scandinavian design aesthetics
