A child always remembers their first playhouse and the time they spend playing in their own miniature house, occupying imaginary worlds with friends. Choosing a premium quality playhouse, such as this 8 x 6 Mercia Bramble Apex Wooden Playhouse, is the best way to ensure this time is fun and will last until children are old enough to move on rather than prematurely wearing out. This children's playhouse is certain to become a favourite in any domestic garden, with its durable two-storey design, which features a mezzanine style loft that can be accessed by a short ladder with wide steps for easy climbing. 



To create the most exciting play area possible, a range of features are packed into its charmingly petite design that set it apart from poor-quality alternatives. Two levels are created by a loft that can be reached by ladder, and the numerous windows ensure children playing inside can look out from both levels. 

Safety is taken as seriously as it should be with this children's playhouse, rewarding this product with an EN71 rating according to European toy standards. Timber used has been subtly rounded to make it more comfortable on small hands, and a minimum 12mm finger gaps features in the single door to help avoid incidents. A railing ensures the mini-mezzanine is a safe spot to play. The glazing used for the windows is made from styrene, a highly durable and virtually shatterproof material that has been chosen for its safety.

The wall construction used is an eye-catching 12mm cladding with horizontal boards that tightly interlock in a classic tongue and groove style that would not be out of place on higher end workshops or sheds found elsewhere on elbec's website. Paired with a colourful and high-quality wood paint such as those found in the Protek range, this cladding offers a remarkable level of protection from the elements while making a striking impression. We love the look of a pastel coloured exterior with light accents on the window and frame details. The shiplap profile is especially good at diverting rainwater away from any vulnerable points in the cladding. 

Another sign of the quality of construction boasted by this playhouse is the strong internal frame made up of 28mm x 28mm timber, and the robust solid sheet board used in both the roof and floor. 


Additional Information

The 8 x 6 Bramble Apex Wooden Playhouse is suitable for children aged 3 and up, and is intended for use in domestic gardens. All timber used in the 12mm shiplap cladding of this playhouse has been dip-treated for the necessary level of protection against rot and other damage from the elements while in transit and during assembly. However, elbec advises applying further treatment soon after to get the best out of the wood and keep your 10-year anti-rot guarantee valid. A high-quality wood preservative can be found in Protek, a paint manufacturer with an excellent range of colours that can be ordered through elbec. Many parents like to ask their children what colour they would like to have for their playhouse prior to purchase, a fun way to put their own stamp on the playhouse. 

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. 

Please note that the images displayed above show an example of the playhouse that is painted, and the base colour of your product will differ. The playhouse is supplied pre-treated, with a golden brown finish that is easy to change with further application of paint or wood stain.
