5,4,3,2,1…Lift off!

The Mercia Rocket Playhouse might be more Flash Gordon than Star Wars but fear not this compact capsule will have your children flying to the stars quicker than you can say ‘Beam me up Scotty!

Manufactured from asteroid-proof 12mm shiplap tongue and groove cladding, the rocket walls will keep your little space-cadets safe from solar flares and meteor storms.

Guidance to the outer worlds is provided by the triangular steering vanes which also support the craft during rough landings on rocky interplanetary surfaces.

The nose cone is protected from harsh re-entries with a layer of tough green felt and your Astro-kids will be able to view the stars through the technologically advanced super-see-through radiation-proof styrene portholes.

Storage for space suits and anti-alien ray guns is provided under the crew compartment which itself is easily accessible via the wooden ladder. The storage facility also houses the twin hinged door allowing easy egress for exciting EVA’s!

The floor of your rocket is formed from 10mm solid sheet OSB board. This not only gives it a durable platform but also helps protect from mould and damp and other-worldly infestations.

It's not too difficult to see that with a little imagination and the Mercia Rocket Playhouse your children could soon be experiencing fantastic adventures to new worlds. The kit is easily assembled and arrives unpainted so you can decorate it however you wish. Being designed with safety in mind and complying with European Toy Safety Standards EN71, the playhouse is suitable for astronauts of 36 months and above.

Ordering this building might only be a few small steps for you, but the rewards will come in giant leaps for your children!

Please Note - All Mercia Playhouses are pre-treated with a water based timber treatment for protection during transit. In order to receive the full 10 year anti-rot guarantee on your Playhouse, it is necessary that you treat the Playhouse with a high quality, water-based, timber preservative prior to or shortly after construction. This will protect the timber from weathering on your Playhouse and will need to be repeated accordingly in relation to manufacturer's instructions. We strongly recommend that children use this or any raised play structure under adult supervision at all times. Due to EU safety regulations this playhouse features a gap around the door to prevent children's fingers from becoming trapped. Suitable for ages 36 months.

Delivery Leadtimes

The estimated delivery lead time for this product is identified on the product page above. Lead times are in working days (Monday - Friday) excludes Bank Holidays. These estimated lead times are provided by the manufacturers and are not guaranteed - due to fluctuation in demand - but are provided in good faith and are representative of delivery at that time. Some remote areas will take a little longer.

Upon Delivery

Your order is delivered either kerbside or driveway and will be delivered on a 17 ton lorry (the size of a Refuse Cart). Unfortunately due to health and safety and insurance liabilities the driver will not be able to take your goods around to the back of your property but may upon request place the product at the side of the house if there are no access or restriction issues. We would not risk damaging your property whilst delivering a product to an un-safe location. Unfortunately we will not be able to go through your property.

You do not need to be home for your delivery. All we ask is that you let us know via email or leave a signed note to let us know that you will not be present for the delivery. In the note please let us know where a suitable place would be to leave the building. If you leave us a note the delivery driver will ring you 30 minutes before delivery and you can inform them of where the note is or you could just leave it on your front door. You must include your signature on the note; our drivers can then take photos of the note to confirm an item(s) has been delivered.

We would recommend against arranging for a third party to install the building before it's been delivered and checked that all parts are present, as we cannot be held liable for any third party costs.

Installation Option

If you have chosen our installation option your order will be delivered as per the delivery process above you have chosen. You’ll be given a separate date for the installation. The installation option will extend your lead time by up to 10 working days.
