We recently received the cardboard rocket playhouse from the fabulous Kid-Eco. Kid-Eco produce an amazing range of cardboard playhouses made from recycled corrugated cardboard. The have fabulous designs from furniture to paperpod cars to aeroplanes to castles & rockets and doll houses.
We choose a white rocket (the come in other colours) so the boys could decorate it. As soon as it had arrived (flat pack with instructions) my worries that the cardboard would be thin and flimsy disappeared. This is incredibly good quality corrugated board. It has survived a birthday party and being chucked into the playroom very quickly.
The rocket was very easy to put together. We managed it in 5 minutes start to finish with the boys helping (hindering!) and they were both in it in time for tea. Despite being given the dimesnions on the site I was hugely impressed by the sheer size of it. Both boys fitted inside the rocket with room to eat tea and have a pillow ready to blast off to the moon.
The rocket as stated is of a great quality and I was very impressed that the holes and cut outs were clean and also had no sharp edges! It has two doors for entry and exit and was also incredibly light inside with the cut outs.
The boys have adored this and love playing with this. We have had it outside in dry weather and it has been it most rooms of the house. It folds flat for easy storage and is a bargain for a toy priced at £28.99 It has so much play value it superb!
