The story of a princess locked up in a tall tower deep in the woods has been woven into folklore and legendary tales for hundreds of years.  Perhaps the only thing equally captivating as the maiden's inordinately long hair is the lanky citadel she is coerced to reside in.  With the Rapunzel's Tower Playset Plan, you need not worry about evil witches and dubious knight's in shinny armor stopping by.

Our storybook inspired Rapunzel Tower is a fun, whimsical take on the classic children's castle playhouse concept with some added whimsy and fable to truly make for a special DIY project.  85 square feet make up it's three floors, with a 2nd level slide exit and 3rd level trap door access.  Ten total glass shed windows can be installed to allow plenty of natural lighting.  Instructions also include a 12' swing-set attachment.
