Garden playhouse




And the winner is Pauline Jackson comment number 3 who will be notified by email.

Thank you to everyone who entered this fabulous competition and thanks to Big Game Hunters for choosing Mari’s World


have the most AMAZING giveaway for you to celebrate Christmas 2012 and I am so excited about it as someone out there is going to have a fabulous gift under the tree. Let me pass the word to Big Game Hunters to tell you all about it…

To celebrate the launch of our new range of wooden playhouses, Big Game Hunters are giving one Mari’s World reader the chance to win one of their most popular designs; the Chestnut Hut wooden playhouse, worth £175!

While the summer appears to have been and gone without much sun to show for it, kids all over the country are buzzing with cooped up energy, and are either bouncing off the walls or getting caked in wet mud from the garden…

But, with the help of a new wooden playhouse, the little ones can still play outdoors but in the comfort of their very own little space. Imaginative play will transform the playhouse into a dragon’s dungeon one day and a princess’ pad the next, and will very quickly take over the temptation to roll around in the grass.

The Chestnut Hut wooden playhouse is a brand new design for 2012, and has been created with a fun barn-style theme. With a traditional barn door and window shutters, as well as bright green pre-painted detailing, this children’s playhouse will liven up any garden through the winter months. Including Easy Fit technology, it’s quick and easy to assemble, while the natural and subtle colouring will suit any garden.

Playhouses are great fun all year round, and Big Game Hunters’ new collection of pre-painted models come in all sorts of different shapes and sizes, with different colour schemes and fairy-tale-esc features; including little letter boxes, flower boxes, chimneys and slides.

You can also find useful guides on choosing your own playhouse and how to look after your wooden playhouse on the website.

  2. Esther James says

    Well if money was no object I would choose Whacky Penthouse Wooden Playhouse as this looks the best play house ever! @esthermate

  3. Zoe Goulding says

    I am going extravagant here, my dream one would be the All Out Play Castle and Tower Combination Wooden Playhouse, I don’t think my garden would be big enough though

  4. Tracy K Nixon says

    Well you asked for my dream choice and at a mind boggling price of £3,799.00, I would have to say…. the All Out Play Castle and Tower Combination Wooden Playhouse

  5. shassany says

    i really like the dutch barn playhouse-it looks smart and would mean kids have somewhere in the garden to play all year round,especially when the weathers not so nice

  6. Hazel Wright says

    My favourite would be the Whacky Tower Wooden Playhouse. These look like they’ve come straight out of the land of Enid Blyton ;-)

  7. cheryl lovell says

    This is amazing! need to win the lottery :)

  8. says

    Anything with a slide – in fact, we should all exit our houses in the morning by slide. I think the world would be a better place if we did that. I’d move into the Whacky Penthouse Wooden Playhouse if I could, if I’m being totally honest.

  9. Jo Heath says

    My daughter would LOVE love heart lodge but to be fair i think she would just love anything with a door in the garden!

  10. Craig Turner says

    I’d like Dutch Barn Playhouse. I think it would give the most head room. I’m about to be kicked out of my flat because I no longer get benefits. Didn’t show up for an interview cos I was in hospital, but hey…. there’s no place on the form to add that in.
    Anyway, it’d be nice to win this playhouse because I need somewhere to live and it will be winter soon and I might die.

  11. says

    I think my son would love the Mercia-Tulip-Tower-Wooden-Playhouse the most, as he could sit out on the veranda of it when its sunny and go inside to play when it’s not……in fact I think getting him back into our real house afterwards would be the problem.

  12. Charlene tankard says

    Redwood lodge wooden play house – my kids would probs rather live in it than their own house lol, lovely!

  13. Paddy Dennison says

    My little boy says the crooked tower wooden tower playhouse is his favourite. I think it’s the slide that did it. Not sure I should have shown him the pictures though, think I’m going to hear a lot more about playhouses today!

  27. says

    Its got to be the Mercia Tulip Tower Wooden Playhouse,

    As my child’s
    imagination would run wild,

    I would fill
    it with Colourful furniture,

    And toys
    that are so dear,

    To climb the
    ladder to get higher and higher,

    In the wooden
    house that is so near,

    A raised canopy
    pointing up into the sky,

    To be able
    to watch all the birds fly by.

  33. Ellie Bromilow says
