Putting up a wendy house can be a great asset for storage or fun

Wendy houses were, originally, small play houses for kids. The original was produced for Wendy Darling in JM Barrie’s play, Peter Pan, or perhaps the Boy Who Wouldn’t Mature.

Wendy was shot through the Lost Boy Tootles after arriving in Neverland, so Peter Pan and the Lost Boys built a little house round her where she had fallen. It had been inspired by the wash-house behind his childhood home in Kirriemuir and first appeared in story form from the Little White Bird through which fairies develop a house around Mamie Mannering &mdash the prototype for Wendy &mdash so protecting her through the cold. 

A prop house was created by JM Barrie for the first stage production of the play in 1904. It had been constructed like a tent in order that it may be erected quickly after a song which Wendy starts with
“If only I’d a darling house / The actual seen, / With funny little red walls / And roof of mossy green.” 

John Darling’s hat was used as a chimney plus a slipper was adopted as being a door knocker. Toy manufacturers soon created replicas in the stage Wendy house which then had been a standard toy found in British garden since that time. 

Around Australia cubby houses (or colloquially “cubby” or “cubbies”) were historically built by children (with perhaps some help from older persons) from found or scrap materials often in out-of-the-way places from the garden or perhaps in wasteground areas. They were by their nature impermanent structures often lasting for any season or two or for one school holiday. Latterly however, keeping the vehicle safe concerns increasingly of an focus and children playing less frequently not in the family home’s garden, construction continues to be more formalised with kits as well as fully-built units being offered commercially. 

The words is virtually unknown in almost all of the U.S., when a backyard children’s play structure is much more apt to be referred to as a play house, a clubhouse or, if in a tree, treehouse.
