Having read all of the reviews, there are a quite a few criticisims from some people then nothing but praise from others.

Criticisms seem to be:

1. Roof not felted.... (seems strange)
2. Not all holes are predrilled
3. Wood splitting - could be related to point 2? Simple solution if so...
4. The screws not being very good - doesn't specify more than that...
5. The size - is stated as 4' x 4' but that includes the veranda - internal size is 3' x 4'
6. Rubbish instructions
7. Some rough bits of wood!??!
8. Wood bowing when wet / needs treating....
9. One comment that their three year old catches her head on the door frame although did say child was tall.
10. Couple of comments that the panels didn't fit together too well.

Having read all of that, I still ordered one. Good condition ones on ebay sell second hand for more than this. Plus I looked at building one from reclaimed pallets but it would still have cost me more than £75 to buy the wood for the frame, time and effort getting the pallets, breaking them down, building the thing, screws, perspex for the windows etc etc.

Great :( Another £75 spent that I didn't have...thanks a lot OP.... :(

Seriously though, was thinking of getting the B&Q one that looks identical for the same price on Monday but that would have been a wild goose chase, no doubt. Now I saved all the hassle. Cheers. Hot deal.

Looks great might get one to put away for daughter as shes only 2 can anyone advise what the best thing to treat it with to make it last ?
Thanks

Anyone who hasn't ordered yet - this if your ordering on line don't forget TopCashBack as it comes under "Toys" section I think it should be 4.2% http://www.topcashback.co.uk/argos/ I only joined TCB on 22nd July and whenever I see anything now I have a look to see if I can get cashback lol - blaming HUKD making me OCD on TCB :)

TCB deal on Toys @ Argos ends tomorrow! They do have some other ongoing ones though for Argos.

I went into Asda today to try and pick up a little tykes Playhouse, however my local Asda had not yet reduced them. The only reason we were looking at the plastic house is because we could not justify the price of this wooden one that we have seen previously on Argos's website we nearly bought it when it was £129 however I'm so glad we waited and picked this up for a bargain price thank you OP !

Just ordered one and recieved a message saying unfortunately we can not confirm your order right now we will send an email within 2 hours. I hope that's not bad news x

Great deal, exactly what we were looking for, for my son's 3rd birthday. Plus 4.2% cashback from topcashback and a £5 gift voucher for next purchase from Argos. Great price, great deal!

ah want to get one of these for my daughters for christmas because my eldest keeps getting in the shed and hiding out in there (shes autistic and seems to like the small quiet space I think)
anyone know if these tend to go on sale a lot during the winter?
debating whether to get this now or wait it out lol

From what I can gather the 5397007009125 one from B & Q has a felt roof so I think im gonna wait and risk it on Monday.

Would never buy a shed from Argos again as wood was all warped and flimsy and that was a £350 one, so unsure what a cheap one would be like!!

Ordered for my little lady. Some cuprinol shades and make it more girly for her and hopefully preserve it.
