Before you buy your cubby house, there are a few core questions to answer that may be unique to Melbourne, or if you live further inland in Victoria:
- Permanent or Temporary? Plastic cubby houses are best for rentals due to their flexibility. Wooden cubby houses are more permanent and, while they won’t move with you as easily, they can add value to your house if it is maintained properly.
- How much space do you have? You’ll want to look for a cubby house that matches the space that you have available in Melbourne. Also the question of whether to get a Timber Play Centre or a Plastic Cubby house is important in the 4 seasons a day weather in Victoria. Being drier, there is less humidity here which means termites and wood rot is a lesser issue, but if drainage is not sufficient, the water can still pose a problem for wood. Plastic Cubbies in extreme temperatures tend to make it degrade faster. So where you put your Cubby or play centre can affect how well it will keep in the long term
- What is your child’s personality? Does he or she need to be stimulated with lots of physical activities, or more likely to play make believe with imagination filling in the gaps? Classic Cubby Houses are great for more quite personalities, where as play centres with swings and slide and climbing walls and monkey bars may be something that is need for kids who just can’t sit still. 🙂
