An interesting article by Tom Bawden in the Independent [disclosure - I work for the super soaraway Indy] looks at the increasingly complex playhouses on the market for children. Here's a snippet: Not so long ago, the average child was perfectly happy with a playhouse made from cheap scrap wood, cardboard or even a bed sheet draped over a line between two poles. Wonky wendy houses wobbled across the land. Nowadays that won’t do at all, with youngsters around the country living it up in des-res two-storey garden mansions with a balcony, double-glazing, window box, electronic doorbell and, in some cases, even a pretend oven. Well worth a read. ---------------------------------------------------------- Friday posts are sponsored by Warwick Buildings , manufacturers of outstanding quality timber buildings.
