The Archie Cubby House a medium size but beautiful cubby house from Hide and Seek Kids. I love the fact that the Sandbox and chalk board wall are all attached to the side of the cubby, which may take up a little more room, but it makes the sandpit so much more accessible to adults and taller children compared to those with sandpits below the cubby house that is elevated about a meter off the ground.
The side chest also gives extra storage for toys and garden equipment when they are not being used.
Having built cubby houses for many years, Hide and Seek Kids’ attention to safety details are also unquestionable. The Archie Cubby House is built to the AS/NZ 8124 standards where little details like oversized gaps under the windows to prevent little fingers from being clipped when they close the windows.
The Archie Cubby House comes ready painted as seen in the pictures, so it is literally ready for play once it has been built. An alternative to sand is always colourful plastic balls.
However, you and your children can personalise it by painting it with your own colour of choice and in anyway you want. This offers a great opportunity for parents and children to have some bonding time even before the Cubby house is ready to receive “guests”. Painting and decorating the Cubby house provides hours if not days of fun and activity for all involved. We highly recommend that you paint the Archie anyway because it will better protect the wood for longevity.
