Mom, I made some alternate dinner plans with my new best friend, Marvin!  The 8x8 "Rippin' Rocket Ship" playhouse plan is the sister space craft to the Soaring Space Shuttle playset and the perfect wooden play structure for the kids who love adventure in the extra terrestrial sort of way. With three individual levels, connected by ladders and a height of almost 20 feet, kids will have no problem pretending that they are astronauts on their way to the moon, mars or dimension "X", you know, the one they can't tell us about.  Houston, we have lift off!

Don't forget to check out other interstellar forms of transportation too!   Rocket fuel sold separately.
