The Shire Crib Playhouse is different from other playhouses - it's packed with brilliant features, such as an extra floor for more levels of fun, a side garage door ideal for toy storage, and a sheltered front veranda to maximise the potential for entertainment. Boasting two windows downstairs and another upstairs, the Crib's 'real house' feel is highly appealing to children, and its safety features mean adults love it too.

The Crib Playhouse's spacious ground floor offers plenty of room for the imagination to run wild, and the addition of an upper floor accessed by a ladder gives this playhouse plenty of different places for children to play. The side door is an excellent feature, making it easy for children to put their toys neatly away in their very own garage before they go back inside. All the windows are glazed with environmentally-friendly shatter resistant styrene, a safer alternative to glass, and the door and two opening windows are fitted with safety hinges to keep little fingers safe.

Made to the high standard expected from Shire, this playhouse's shiplap cladding uses a sturdy tongue and groove structure to give you a neat and durable outer wall, which can also be upgraded to pine logs for improved insulation, sound proofing, and aesthetics. The floor and roof of the playhouse are also constructed from tongue and groove cladding, ensuring a quality finish and a playhouse that will really last.

All Shire playhouses are supplied pre-treated with a base coat to both sides in a golden brown water-based industrial product, but will not be pre-painted, giving you a blank canvas to tailor to the children'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 Shire Crib 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.
