Picture this. It’s Saturday morning. You slowly open your eyes as you pull yourself out of dreamland. You reckon it must be 6am, and you’re relieved that you’ve woken up before the kids so that you don’t have to be dragged awake kicking and screaming. What bliss.
You roll over to get an idea of the time. It’s 9am. WHAT! Something must be wrong. You haven’t had the morning ramblings of, “I’m bored. What can we do now? Where are we going today?” Aliens must have abducted your children, or even worse.
You tear through the house. Bedrooms empty. Bathrooms empty. Living area empty. Kitchen empty. All of a sudden you hear laughter and screeching and your heart rate slows down to a panic. You look out the window and what an amazing sight. Your kids are outside running around, jumping, playing, rolling and having a ball. They are totally engrossed in playing in their cubby house. So engrossed that they’ve forgotten to harass you!
This could be your household if you had the Rivergum Timber Cubby House. Relaxed parents, plus the added bonus of happy, healthy and entertained kids. It couldn’t get any better than that.
Although it actually does get better than that, believe it or not! The Rivergum Timber Cubby House is one of our tallest children’s cubby houses, sitting on stilts at 1200mm high, which the kids love. There are four large windows, and to make it all their own, the pine cladding can be painted any colour of the rainbow and you can choose from four different colours for the roof. The Rivergum Timber Cubby House is their stage and they can create the play! Let their imaginations run wild; perhaps they’re high up in their castle overlooking their land, ready for an enemy attack, or they’re playing ‘I Spy’ as they watch over our precious country finding the hidden wonders of nature, or they’re sailing the high seas with views of the vast open sea, all the easier to spot the pirate ships!They might even be in their rocket ship, flying high in the sky, looking down on the world below. This type of pretend play is awesome for your kids. Not only does it develop their creativity but it helps with language development, social interactions and gives them self-esteem by having control over their play.
Besides revving up those imaginations, the Rivergum Timber Cubby will get them outside and active. Climbing up the ladder and charging down the slide, jumping, rolling, leaping and running will keep those muscles in tip-top shape. Of course keeping them active now, will keep them fit and healthy as they grow up. Your young explorers will also be getting outside, taking in a good dose of Vitamin D and some fresh air; a far sight better than watching TV or playing games.
This children’s cubby house has a large space underneath, so the kids can create an extra hide-out, or you can use it for storage or perhaps add a sand-pit. The choice is yours.
