There are many reasons for buying your family a wooden boat playhouse. In my opinion, the idea of getting the kids outdoors and away from the tv or video games is important. It helps children develope important physical attributes such as coordination and tactical ability. It also provides a safe haven where they will develop psychological strength and social skills playing with friends. We can all relate to having that secure place when we were a youngster, to run to when we were upset, sad, or learning to deal with our emotions. These are the less obvious reasons why a wooden boat playhouse is a great investment for your family. Not to mention the catalyst for imagination and incredible FUN!
