Found a cheaper Playhouse elsewhere?

Be careful not all playhouses are equal, ours are built to last and are packed with extra features to ensure that you and your child get the very best from the building.

Waltons Cheaper Alternatives
Strong OSB Board [Click for more info]

At Waltons we only use OSB board. It's tougher than particle board and will flex rather than snap if a little too much weight is applied.

Some suppliers use particle board which can be fragile and break under too much load, so be careful when assembling.

Walls 12mm T&G [Click for more info]

At Waltons we only use 12mm tongue and groove shiplap for our Playhouses. The traditional design benefits from a chamfered top of the board to improve water run-off and help protect the playhouse from moisture. Shiplap T&G is also stronger than 9mm economy board and will last for years to come.

Some competitors use 9mm matchboard for their cladding, which can be susceptible to warping and "cupping".

Pre Fitted Quality Window [Click for more info]

At Waltons we pre-fit the windows on many of our playhouses so you don't have to worry about assembly. Our styrene windows are fitted within a sash frame to give a much better finish and will keep the styrene firmly in place. Please note our Bramble, Bluebell & Rose playhouses do not have window framing.

Some companies don't frame their windows with a sash on the outside as well as the inside.

Fully Framed Doors [Click for more info]

At Waltons we fully frame the doors on most of our playhouses. This makes the door so much stronger and will help it to keep its shape, so it can stand up to more hours of play. Please note our Rose & Bluebell, the Snug do not have extra door framing

Some companies make doors for the playhouses that are simply braced. This method is fine for occasional use on a shed door. A playhouse door tends to be used more often.

Wide Decking Ladder Rungs [Click for more info]

At Waltons we use grooved material for grip. This gives a solid deeper tread to make sure climbing up and down for hours on end is easy and safe.

Some companies make steep ladder made from framing for their tower playhouse. These thin rungs can be trickier for some young children to climb.

Round Edge Timber [Click for more info]

At Waltons we only use rounded edge and planed timber for the framing in our playhouses. This is much smoother to the touch and can drastically reduce the threat of splinters.

Some companies use rough sawn timber as framing on their playhouses to keep the costs down. These can be very rough to the touch and may cause splinters.
