Robinia Playhuts and Playhouses
A cozy home on the playground
Robinia Playhuts and houses are cozy, familiar places to retreat to, to meet, share secrets, organize and plan. For small children, a playhouse is a safe haven and miniature introduction to home life. Too small for adults, it is where they are the ‘boss’ and can create their own storylines. These small structures are inviting and the perfect space to learn how to communicate and share with friends. Open-sided with benches, playhuts and houses create an opportunity for training hand-eye coordination by, perhaps, working with a bucket and spade.
The Robinia wood is the perfect material. It’s closely-knit grain, lightness in color and smooth surface offers a warmth that makes it irresistible to small children. It is a tactile wood that also stands up well to the trials of weather. The construction is equally friendly, with smooth, curved edges helping to ensure that play is totally confined to fun.
