Growing up what was the one thing you wanted more than anything?

A Sega Genesis? A Totally Hair Barbie? Probably yes to both. But also, a cubby house!

It’s been 25 long years since Sega and Totally Hair Barbie were must-have items on every kid’s wish list, which is ironically the same amount of time Aarons has been making fantastic cubby houses for kids. But unlike our fave toys of the 80s and 90s, cubby houses never seem to go out of style.

I loved ours growing up and, 25 years later (give or take), my kids LOVE theirs too.

Cubby houses provide kids with an amazing outdoor space, encourage imaginative play, help build coordination and strength and are the landscape of countless positive childhood memories.

If you’re thinking about adding a cubby house to your backyard, then we highly recommend having a closer look at Aarons Outdoor Living, your all-Aussie choice for the best in cubby houses for kids.

We even have a way for you to ENTER TO WIN AN AARONS VILLA CUBBY HOUSE (details at the bottom of the page).

5 reasons why kids (and parents) need a cubby

1. Gives kids a place to call their own

Sure, they have their bedrooms, but a cubby house gives your child his or her own space, a safe sanctuary to be alone and a chance to organise their stuff just the way they want it. This little bit of freedom and responsibility at a young age can do wonders for kids.

2. A cubby house nurtures imaginative play

Cubby houses are more than just houses. They are castles in the mountains, boats splashing along a river or spaceships hurling into new galaxies. They provide kids with a base to let their imaginations take them anywhere they want and a secret getaway that is only a few metres from their back porch.

3. Great for coordination and strength

You can get cubby houses that are elevated or come with all sorts of outdoor play equipment to help strengthen little bodies, develop coordination skills and improve critical thinking. We’re talking ropes, monkey bars, swings, rock walls, fireman poles, slides and scramble nets – to name a few.

4. A cubby house encourages outdoors play  

Put down the iPads and go play outside! With a cubby house in the backyard, you won’t have to ask them twice. It gives them a reason to be outside, to play in the backyard and to connect with nature.

5. Promotes hours of play!

And we all know how important play is for kids. Cubby houses are great for independent play, for shared play with siblings or friends and even for parental play. That’s one of the things we love most about Aarons Cubbies  – they are tall enough for mum and dad to easily fit inside too!

Five elevation heights and heaps of extras 

You can also choose to elevate your cubby to five different heights. This means you can put in a slide, add a sandpit underneath or include a rock wall.

There are also plenty of extras to add to your cubby too – letterboxes, skylights, boat wheels, even serveries, not to mention climbing apparatus like monkey bars, scramble nets and fireman’s poles. These are only some of the extras you can get to inspire imaginations and build their climbing skills.
