The Pettson playhouse is a wonderful playhouse with barred windows and two decorative chimneys. At the ridge, the internal ceiling height is about 1.9 m, so even big children can play in here! The small porch is a cosy entrance where children can welcome their friends into the world of fairy tales. There is room here for sensible Pettson and crazy Findus!

How easy is it to assemble?

The playhouse is delivered in ready-made building elements that you can easily assemble yourself with the help of a hammer, screwdriver and the included screws and nails.

Start by preparing a simple foundation. We recommend that you dig out the topsoil, lay a ground cloth and fill it with macadam. Then lay concrete slabs or leca blocks and make sure they are level.  

When the foundation is ready, the fun work of building the playhouse begins. The floor joists are screwed together and the floorboards are nailed down according to the instructions in the manual. The wall elements are put down and screwed on step by step and the Pettson playhouse is ready in the blink of an eye!  

Then it's finally time to paint and decorate the playhouse! To get the real Pettson feeling, it is important to choose colours carefully. You can use our colour list to get the same shades we used. You can find the colour codes in the specifications further down the page.

We also want to inspire you to create simple furniture from the pallet used to deliver the playhouse. In true Pettson spirit, you can use the packaging material to build a postbox, shelf, flower box or other lovely details. Use our drawings or come up with your very own furniture with the children! You'll find our suggestions in the manuals a bit further down the page.

The playhouse is developed by our designers and approved by Sven Nordqvist who wrote and illustrated the books about Pettson & Findus.
