Whether it is a meditation retreat for parents or a fort for children, everyone in the family needs a space of their own to relax, play, and feel at ease. The Thicket from Cheeriup is a handmade dwelling made from native willow branches in Minnesota. A great alternative to a plastic playhouse, the woven walls may be adorned with a number of accessories from Cheeriup or can be made by your own little artist. Designed to inspire creativity and a love for nature and sustainability, the Thickets come in two different models, and are completely non-toxic.
A cross between a playhouse and giant nest, the Cheeriup Thicket is a natural structure built with sustainability and creativity in mind. You can choose from the the Tufted Savoye or the Cyan-Lashed Ptarmigan, as well as a number of flags and clay accessories to personalize your Thicket. Suitable for both indoors and outdoors, each Thicket is woven by hand in Minnesota from flexible native willow branches. The wooden floors are stained with non-toxic paints, and the unsealed branches are safe for recreation and relaxation.
Orders may be placed through the Cheeriup website, and are fulfilled depending on the time of year that they are placed. Currently, ready-made Fledgling Thickets are available, standing from 4-6ft. Three new prototypes will be available in the coming months, and those interested are encouraged to check the website and contact for pre-orders. Thickets vary in price and start at a base of $1,900.
