A child's first playhouse will become an exciting part of their early life thanks to the endless entertainment it provides. This is why it is best to choose a high-quality playhouse that will stand up to the elements and continue to give children a fun place to play for many years. The fun design of this playhouse, reminiscent of Swiss cottages, is perfect for roleplaying and disappearing into imaginary worlds. It therefore comes as no surprise that this is a highly popular model, enjoyed by parents for its low cost and excellent quality.


To ensure this playhouse is an exciting option for children's play outside the house, a range of features are packed into its bijou structure, setting it apart from cheaper alternatives. An apex roof does a good job of diverting rainfall away from the playhouse, and its large overhang at the front helps keep the worst of the weather from the Honeysuckle's interior. Attractive features like front railings, a wavy bargeboard to the roof, and two fixed windows culminate in a beautiful playhouse that children will cherish.

Safety of any young children playing in the playhouse is taken as an absolute priority, as is reflected by details like the 12mm finger gap around the single door, and rounded timbers that will not spring any nasty surprises on small hands. In addition to this, the fixed windows on either side of the door (plus the fun 'porthole' window in the door itself) feature styrene glazing that is shatterproof and far safer than many types of glass. It is the thoughtful inclusion of details like these that have led to this playhouse meeting the EN71 European safety standard for toys.

Much like many of Mercia's fully fledged garden sheds, the Honeysuckle playhouse features 12mm wall cladding using high-quality timber. Each timber is cut so that it can interlock in a 'tongue and groove' structure that creates a tight seal, ideal for protecting against the outdoors. This helps ensure that the playhouse will continue to be a clean and comfortable space for children to play long after purchasing. 8mm oriented strand board is strong and water resistant, making it the perfect choice for both the roof and floor of this playhouse.

Additional Information

The 6 x 5 Mercia Honeysuckle Playhouse is suitable for children aged 3 and over, and is designed for domestic use in home gardens. All timber used in this shiplap cladding is dip-treated for a good level of initial protection against rot and insect infestation while in transit and during assembly. However, elbec recommends improving the durability of your playhouse with a high-end wood preservative from a reputable supplier such as Protek, available for order with your playhouse. The Protek collection gives owners an impressive range of possible colours; perhaps your child can pick out their own and enjoy a colour scheme that reflects their tastes! This will help you follow the care instructions provided by Mercia to ensure you can get the most out of the 10-year anti-rot guarantee offered with this playhouse.
Your playhouse will be delivered in parts, ready for assembly at home. The playhouse will take two adults to build, and prior experience of similar DIY projects will help you in completing the playhouse. Fortunately Mercia includes a detailed instruction manual to follow and it is likely that you will be able to use the playhouse only one or two days after you begin the assembly process.
Please note that the images above show an example of the playhouse that has been stained to preserve the timber, and the base colour of your product may differ. The playhouse is supplied pre-treated with a golden brown finish that is easy to change with further application of paint.
