Designed as part of the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show, this playhouse named Vardo Hut, was created to be auctioned off to raise money for Kids Under Cover, a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to preventing youth homelessness.

There’s also a back door, which you have to be pretty small to fit through, good for keeping grown-ups out.
