A Pirate’s Life For Me: New Children’s Playhouse

The pirate ship playhouse that encourages children to be scallywags.

Ever wanted to sail the high seas? Well with this Pirate Ship playhouse, you can believe you’re doing just that, from your own backyard. The playhouse is a new arrival in this year’s Hammacher Schlemmer catalogue.

A 23’ high treehouse built around a real hollowed-out trunk, it features an assortment of pirate-themed decorations including a skeleton figurehead, crossbones, and a mast with a crow’s nest and flying Jolly Roger flag. The ship’s bow, a balcony and a clubhouse provide areas to play and there is also a swing, fireman’s pole, climbing net, monkey bars, and a corkscrew tunnel slide.

The playhouse was originally designed by Daniels Wood Land, Inc who create a variety of treehouses, carvings and shooting galleries. It would likely be a dream come true for many children, especially since the arrival of Captain Jack Sparrow (played by Johnny Depp) and the popular Pirates of the Caribbean films.
