Dad spends £800 building a fully-kitted playhouse during lockdown for daughter’s third birthday – The Sun

LITTLE Lola Messenger loved lockdown in a playhouse built for her 3rd birthday — complete with its own kitchen, TV and imitation fireplace.

Parents Steve and Hayley wanted to surprise her after the virus cancelled her party and a trip to Florida in April.

Steve, 32, spent £800 and fitted electrics in the timber-framed home in Hastings, East Sussex. He also used left-over wood and foam to build a toddler-sized toy Ferrari.

He said: “It took three weeks, but now Lola’s got her own place to hang out.”

Hayley, 33, added: “It’s like she’s moved out, into the back garden. She absolutely loves it."

“We were meant to go to Florida for her birthday and had to cancel it so we thought we’d treat her to something.

“She’s in it all day. As soon as all the tools were out she was straight inside playing.

“I’ve put her baby monitor in there so if she wants me she can shout. It gives her a bit of a independence as well.”

Lola has another treat when she’s older — a toy Ferrari made from left-over wood.
