A simple, compact playhouse ideal for small children, this pretty cottage is ideal as a first playhouse. Building on the popular Bunny design, the Tower model adds the excitement of being high above the ground to the traditional playhouse experience.

Situated on a sturdy platform supported by robust stilts, the Shire Bunny Tower Playhouse offers plenty of fun and looks fantastic, able to provide hours of imaginative play. Children love being up high, and this playhouse offers an excellent opportunity to incorporate jungle treehouses or magical castles in the mountains into their make-believe.

Shire is known for its high-quality products, and the Bunny is no exception. This playhouse is built from shiplap pine in a sturdy tongue and groove construction, making it better sealed from the elements and giving it an attractive finish. The floor and roof are constructed from Oriented Strand Board (OSB). Other features include environmentally-friendly shatter resistant styrene window glazing and safety hinges as standard for added peace of mind.

The Shire Bunny Playhouse is supplied with a dip-treated base coat as standard, with a top coat available as an option for a stronger finish, which makes the wood appear golden brown. The Bunny does not come pre-painted, giving you a blank canvas to tailor the playhouse to your child'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. We offer a range of Protek Royal Exterior Wood Finish treatments, available in a number of natural stains and colours, which is ideal for protecting your playhouse.

The Bunny 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.
