"A two storey playhouse designed to look like a castle, provides something further than just a playhouse. It has a climbing wall up one side and the roof doubling up as the first floor playarea. The playhouse has an overhang all the way around, with unglazed cross slit windows on top. There is also cross slit windows cut into the shutters and the door. There is a large glazed, double window on one side of the playhouse making an ideal lookout place from your castle. The roof is accessed via the climbing wall or a ladder on the opposite side creating different opportunities to venture up to the play space on top."

After closer inspection, this castle was built by a serious designer. There are a lot of engineered considerations made with this castle that ensures the king won’t get insured as they climb around. The rope is securely bolted to the castle, and the framework is really sturdy. This is yet another example of how this isn’t a novelty item – it’s the real deal.
The base of the play castle is just as usable as the roof.
When you first see this castle, you might think just the roof is usable. The truth is that the whole body and base of the castle offers a unique play space for kids. The rear of the castle has a well-made door that gives entrance to the body of the castle. The front of the castle has a pair of shutters that can swing open, giving the king full vision of his kingdom.
The door is portioned in half, adding a fun layer. Someone can open the top half, having a conversation without giving access to their special castle. The side of the base has a massive, reinforced window that allows plenty of natural light in. The space is large enough for a kid to comfortably walk around without hitting their head. It’s about 7 feet wide, tall, and deep.
The use of teak wood is a great stylistic and structural choice.
If you didn’t know, the wood type used in this castle is perfect. Teak is a wood that has a great natural color and can be easily stained to bring it out even more. Teak is a strong, lightweight, and sturdy wood that will hold up over time. It is strong enough to get jumped on, hit, and spilled on without getting damaged. On the surface, it just looks like a gorgeous wood – in application, it will handle the environment of being a rough kid’s play castle.
You can tell that safety is a big consideration in this design.
The more you use this children’s play castle with climbing wall, the more you realize how safe it is. Not only is the wood a safe option, but the unit is really structurally sound. The fireman’s pole, rope, and ladder have multiple layers of protection to keep them in place. There are added pieces that the child can use to help hoist themselves to the top of the castle. The base of the castle has a ton of reinforcement to support the roof.
The windows are made with safety glass and have a reinforced backing. More importantly, every surface of this play castle is perfectly sanded.
