The 8x4 Basil Multiplay Playhouse gives your children the best of both worlds – an indoor retreat to play in and a sheltered outside area with a bench for when the weather is warm and sunny, they can really let their imaginations come to life. The height of this wooden playhouse is taller than most standard playhouses so your children won’t grow out of it before it has been used to its full potential.

This wooden playhouse is manufactured using Pressure Treated timber, which is guaranteed against rot and fungal damage for 15 years. It's delivered unpainted and ready for you to paint in a suitable wood paint colour of your choice should you wish.

High quality 12mm thick Tongue & Groove boards are used throughout and the playhouse has a fully boarded floor.

While your children are younger, you don’t need to worry about their safety while playing; the hinges on the door are specially designed to prevent little fingers getting trapped and you can still keep an eye on them through the styrene glazed window featured on the building. This wooden playhouse is compliant with EN71 European child safety requirements for toys.

The 8x4 Basil Multiplay Playhouse is suitable for children ages 3+ years and the spacious interior means more than one child can play at a time. Supplied flat packed for easy self-assembly.
