Description

The 5x5 Poppy Tower Playhouse from Mercia is the tower version of this a tried and trusted design and has been a long-standing favourite among children and customers alike for many years.

There can be huge benefits for children when it comes to playing outside and having a little place of their own in the garden can help develop their learning abilities, stimulate creativity and encourage them to be physically active.

With its traditional apex-roof design and sitting atop its sturdy legged frame, a ‘tree-house style’ look is achieved. Easy access is maintained using the included wooden ladder which can be arranged left or right depending on your personal preference. Although the building is a safe 3’ (91cm) from the ground, extra confidence is maintained with an all-around safety railing.

The Poppy Playhouse has been given a ‘story-book’ type look in Georgian style architecture complete with an attractive 0.25m veranda. It's abundant in ‘fairy-tale’ style charm making it an attractive addition to any garden looking especially great painted in one of our Royal Exterior shades from Protek.

The exterior is manufactured from 12mm planed and rounded Baltic-sourced timber and comprises of factory machined tongue and groove boards. This will make certain a tight and robust construction is achieved which will be splinter-free, hard-wearing and water resistant.

The veranda not only adds an appealing detail to the house, but it can also help keep your children a little cooler in the summer months and fend off light showers when it rains. Around the door, there’s also a thoughtful 12mm gap to prevent little fingers from getting trapped or hurt.

Don’t worry about the front window or door window either – they’re fixed with a tough crossbar insert and glazed with 100% shatter-proof styrene making them a safe alternative to glass.

Ensuring tough and long-lasting performance, the floor comprises of a solid-sheet 10mm OSB board with bearers attached and are precisely arranged to integrate with the tower frame base.

Your children will absolutely fall in love with this fabulous playhouse from Mercia and this tower version would make a fun and practical addition to any garden area.

Delivery

This product will be delivered flat-packed and ready for home assembly, with all the parts and fixtures needed to do so along with an easy-to-follow instruction manual. It will take two adults to build, so elbec recommends enlisting the help of a friend. Experience of putting together similar projects will help to do so more quickly, but it is reasonable to expect the building of this playhouse to take one or two days.

Treating your Playhouse

All Mercia Playhouses are pre-treated with Aquatan, a water-based treatment which results in a golden-brown finish. Our factory applied dip treatment may differ in shade between components as it is simply a basecoat. This treatment only helps to prevent discolouration of the building while in storage and during transit. To validate your guarantee and ensure the longevity of the product, it is essential that the building is treated with a high quality, water-based, timber preservative prior to or shortly after construction. Annual re-treatment is required to maintain your building and the 10 year anti-rot guarantee.

Safety and Suitability

The Mercia Poppy Tower Playhouse is only suitable for children aged 36 months or above and must be sited outdoors. The playhouse has been awarded an EN71 Safety Certificate, highlighting the product’s quality and providing assurance as to its safety for this age group. We strongly recommend that children always use this tower playhouse or any raised play structure under adult supervision.

Please note: The Mercia Poppy Tower Playhouse is supplied unpainted. Some images may show the product painted and/or decorated with accessories/furnishings. This is for display purposes only. Your order will not be delivered with any of the accessories/furnishings shown.
