Princess Isabella receives a new playhouse from the people of Denmark

05/26/2008 at 08:42 AM ET

Princess Isabella, 13 months, was recently gifted with an oak kid-size playhouse — weighing ½ ton — by the people of Arhus Kommune, Denmark as a gift for her July 1st christening.  Unlike any other playhouse, however, this particular model is certainly fit for the Princess and her brother, Prince Christian, 2 ½. Constructing an exact replica of the children’s grandparents Queen Margrethe II and Prince Henrik‘s summer home built in 1902 — the Marselisborg Castle — took architect Alice Rosborg and builders three months to make it all come together.  The playhouse, which comes with special features such as a lift-up roof for easy parental access and material durability that will last decades, sits in the backyard of Chancellory House.

Princess Isabella and Prince Christian’s parents are Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary.

Hello magazine are never very factually correct. The playhouse was actualy a gift from Arhus Council to Princess Isabella, a belated present for her christening.

Hello magazine got the facts wrong. The playhouse was a christening gift for Princess Isabella from Århus Kommune, where the summer home Marselisborg is located, not Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary.

As Christine M said the playhouse is a gift for Isabella.
It has a frieze around it forming her name: Isabella Henrietta Ingrid Margrethe

Lucky girl!

personally, i tend to believe that elaborate playhouses stunt children’s imagination. i mean, u could have a plastic phone in there or just use a banana…a sheet over the kitchen table always sufficed with me. i’m 26, i still have the table and i’m saving it for my kids to play under also one day.
