If the kids have been asking for a play house and a traditional Wendy house just won’t do, why not get them the ultimate in make believe house? A wooden cubby house.
Forget tents or plastic playhouses – for a high-quality children’s playhouse that will stand the test of time and provide hours and hours of entertainment, choose a red cedar timber wood cubby house.
Large cubby houses are versatile. You can create a centre piece for the garden, and these houses can be an attraction to everyone in the neighbourhood. For some, they can be a home office or private hang out for studying, playing music, or just spending time away from mum and dad.
A cubby house can serve as an extra playroom if space in the home is in short supply, whether it’s a playroom or a place for camping and stargazing. For adults, cubby houses can be a place where you store your gardening equipment or even your tools for your hobbies.
Great for Parties
Cubby houses are also great for children’s birthday parties. They’re a novel place to open presents, present the birthday cake or play games. Older kids can set up a stereo system to have an outdoor disco.
Cubby houses promote outdoor play. Only 8% of Australian children play outside every day. Having a cubby house is a good way to get a child to get off the couch. Some models are raised off the ground and have ladders and verandas, like a tree house, and others also come equipped with slides, climbing frames and other activities.
If you have space, consider getting a timber cubby house, studio or ‘chill out’ space for your child, for the ultimate play area.
