Hiya,

I an after some suggestions of where to buy a new indoor play house for Evo. He has has both the house and the castle from cardboard guy, and the castle is pretty much destroyed. He's loved them both, so I certainly wouldn't mind getting another, just wanted to know what else is out there

I have a budget of around £30 and I'd like it to be a similar size to the cardboard guy ones - about a 1mx1m footprint maximum I suppose. It doesn't have to be cardboard, wood or plastic is fine....something that lasted a bit longer than cardboard would be nice, but Evo does enjoy destroying the cardboard ones.

It needs to look nice-ish too, so o/h doesn't strop about it.
:roll:
Thanks.

Perhaps look in the kids section of Argos or Toys R Us or something like that for a little plastic playhouse? You could always stick just plain cardboard/cereal boxes etc. inside for Evo to destroy but the main structure would be solid and cleanable. Probably be a bit more than £30 though - unless you try free ads/Ebay first?

Asleep on the 2nd floor

And at various stages of destruction, I have had to cut the bottom floor off, as he'd bitten through the walls and it kept tipping over.

I've just taken this one, it's taken him since Christmas to get it like this.

He loves it so much, he spends so much time playing and sleeping in there, I'd hate him to not have one or something like it.

I love that, think I will have to order one. Did it last long?

He's had this one since Christmas, I reckon it'll be ok for another couple of weeks. The house lasted a whole year, but it was in the living room for about 6 months, so he didn't have access to it all the time.

I don't think it would be very good! :lol:

If it lasts for six months, I don't think it's too bad VFM.

Just stack up some cardboard boxes, cut doorholes and voila! I'm sure Evo doesn't care if it's castleshaped or not :lol:

Have you had the house too, which one would you rercommend for four bunnies? Remember there is a Beatrix there, so the most hard wearing the better :lol: .

If I was to get another one, it would be a house. Evo didn't get up to the 3rd floor much in the castle.

Little tikes do a range of climbing frames in various sizes, you can usually pick them up second hand cheaply

There used to be stuff you could build you own from. Made of red tubes that connected and then flat pannels that clipped in. Dunno if they still sell stuff like that.

You could probably build a plywood version of the card board castle fairly easily.

They are! :D The Hideout is the house, and the Lookout is the castle. Evo has needed the large size in both, so he was able to fit in the tunnels and doorways.
