Latest Price News
In this section we tell you all about the latest significant price moves in the wooden playhouse market as we find them. Remember though that these may not last for long so you might have to move fast to take advantage of them. Be sure too to check any delivery charges to your area - the lowest headline price isn't always the best deal!
Coronavirus and your Wooden Playhouse
The coronavirus lockdown has had a significant effect on the online wooden playhouse market, both in terms of prices and availability. Many wooden playhouse sellers are 'middle men' who in normal circumstances will sell you the playhouse then arrange for delivery direct from the manufacturer. Prices between these sellers vary depending on the seller's 'cut' and the price they pay the manufacturer. Whether the price includes an element of delivery may also affect what you pay. With the lockdown, this method of retail is significantly curtailed and very few playhouses are now offered for sale by this type of retailer.
If you're in the market for a wooden playhouse, your best bet is to try to purchase direct from a manufacturer, such as (all links open in a new window): Tiger Sheds or one of the Kybotech companies e.g. BillyOh or Garden Buildings Direct. These are manufacturers who sell their products direct to the public online and are still offering this service with delivery dates. TP Toys are another manufacturer/seller in the same category who offer a more lighweight selection to the wooden playhouse customer. Because these sellers don't have the markup of a middle man or the overheads of a stockist you'll often find them the cheapest around. In the present circumstances they're likely to be the only sellers of their products.
If none of these take your fancy, you're best bet is to look for a stockist who still has some wooden playhouses in stock. As time passes these become fewer, but at the time of this update you can still find decent selections at sellers like (all links open in a new window): Wickes, QD Stores, Cherry Lane, Garden Street, B&Q and Argos - to name a few. You might find queues to visit the Wickes and B&Q websites but it's worth sticking around to see what they have.
At the wooden playhouse guide we're still working hard to bring you the most up to date pricing and availability information possible. The sources listed above are just a sample of what you can still find online at this stage of the lockdown. You can browse our full selection to see just what's currently on offer.

Cherry Lane and QD Stores - every little helps!
Cherry Lane and QD Stores are both currently offering a selection of codes to save you a few pounds on your wooden playhouse. They're valid until the end of May but in the current climate stocks all around are getting low - so we'd recommend you don't hang around if you're looking for a garden feature to keep young ones occupied. All the details over on our Wooden Playhouse Discount and Promo Code page (opens in a new window).

Some Great April Offers for Palmako
Palmako make a couple of superb wooden playhouses: the Felix and the Toby.

(update - 19 April 2020)
We're well into the lockdown now and sadly no real end is in sight. As you'd imagine, with the fine weather upon us and schools closed there's been quite a take up of wooden playhouses over the last couple of weeks. As a result, stocks of many models are low and prices are rising. Many online retailers are still delivering though and it's still possible to get your hands on a wooden playhouse at the moment. Our advice would be to order from retailers who advertise their playhouses as in stock and/or offer a defininte delivery timescale. As always, we're carefully tracking both stock and prices to save you time trawling through dealers with no availability and to help you beat ever rising costs. Be sure to check our listings for updated information on both stock and availability - and, of course, the best prices.

As a result they're now the best value you can find for many models - and they still have good availability too! We'd highly recommend you check out their full range here.
