Grandparents build magical Harry Potter playhouse for their granddaughter

My children are obsessed with all things Harry Potter.

As of yet, we have read the first four books. Chapter by chapter, they have been our bedtime story of choice for the past couple of years, and we are all enthralled.

Which is why I reckon, my kids would go absolutely crazy for this playhouse some grandparents from Ontario, Canada, had recently built for their granddaughter.

I mean; just look at it!

Featuring wizards, witches, magic, and a whole lot of adventure, it is no wonder J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter universe is a favourite with children the world over.

So imagine the look on this little girl's face when she first laid eyes on her two-story 350sqft Harry Potter playhouse, featuring a remake of the Hogwarts Castle tower, Ollivander’s wand shop, Platform 9¾, and Dursleys’ Privet Drive.

Grandparents Dave and Ruby Dunlop wanted to spend more time with their grandkids. So what did they do? They built a massive Harry Potter playhouse!


The level of detail is stunning and the playhouse has been the talk of the town (and the internet) ever since it was unveiled. And it is easy to see why. The gigantic fortress features a broom-inspired swing set, a slide, and secret hatch alongside a wooden bridge which leads to an owlery.

And it doesn't even stop there, reports

Inside the castle, the walls are emblazoned with photos of various characters from the popular series and there’s also a bed on the top floor to accommodate sleepovers.

Cool? I know!

I mean; they even put in a fireplace, you know, if the children are looking to relax in the playhouse during the winter.

To be fair, the playhouse was not a total DIY project, but rather a very pricy purchase from Charmed Playhouses, which took six weeks to complete.

Apparently, the Dunlop family declined to reveal how much it cost to build this mega-playhouse but customers usually pay between $15,000 to $250,000.
