I am like any proud father who wants to build a cubby house for their son (or daughter). Fortunately for my son Josh, all I had to do was to ask Google. There are literally 100′s of cubby house manufacturers in Australia.

After comparing many I thought Cubby Kraft had the best range and one that would suit my needs (and hopefully my son’s). I was a bit concerned about the Freight from Western Australia to Brisbane but it was not much more than local delivery, I couldn’t believe it. The whole kit arrived in a flat pack, with each piece individually pre cut and clearly labelled. The instructions came on a CD and I built it myself.

I did a few custom modifications but the whole cubby is great as delivered.

I have put it up in my front yard and people stop in the street to look at the cubby. Everyone asks me if I built it, of course I say yes, but the truth is Cubby Kraft built it, I just had to put it together. Little Josh is just starting to talk and the first time he ever put two words together he said “Dig Hole”, meaning I want to go and play in the sand pit. It is so good to have a great play area. We love it when his little mates come over and they play all day in the cubby house. I can’t imagine bringing up my son without this cubby house. We love it.

If you want a cubby house that is easy to put together and your kids are going to love, get one from Cubby Kraft.

Hi Larry,

Photos of Shannen, Ashley and Denver’s new “shack”. We had a Cubby Warming (and Ashley’s 5th birthday) on October 20th. We had over 40 little people and as many parents here to join us for celebrations. Just about all of Ashley’s preschool class came and the cubby and party are still the talk of the school (had a couple of gatecrashers). It was a fantastic day and the Cubby was certainly warmed. We have a fluro light and two wall fans inside to make play-time a little more comfortable and a gazebo that we put up in front of the slides for shade. The girls love it and we quite often have a picnic lunch on the verandah or under the gazebo. I am making PVC blinds for the windows to keep out the rain which I can roll up for play time. There was a lot of anticipation for the cubby to be finished and up as I spent many a late night working under spotlights to get it finished and a lot of the neighbours would come past to check on the progress. The lattice “cage” is a storage area for all of their bikes and scooters etc.

You might have noticed that the letter box isn’t up anywhere…well, I only bought 1 and the girls couldn’t agree on which side it should go so it was put in the shed before blood was spilt. Also, if you know of anyone else buying a cubby from up here who needs a 1.2 elevation kit I have one here that they could get at a cheaper price…am happy to deliver it to them. You’ll also notice they we made some modifications…higher rail for verandah (so the 2 yr old couldn’t throw herself or anyone else over), wider stairs (so they couldn’t throw each other over the side), screens on the windows (before we got them Denver (2) would practically hang out). Unfortunately we didn’t decide on the wider stairs until after we had just about finished hence the support beams/poles not having the best possible placement. Denver is the youngest but definitely has the most attitude and soen’t mind pushing her older sisters aside…or out of the picture : )

Don’t for get to send a sign up with the replacement slide so that we can put it up on the wall. From word of mouth and the school grapevine we are getting people driving by to have a look. And, if it’s not too late I would also like to buy 2 more sets of plastic handgrips 250mm X 75mm, preferably red and yellow if you have them. Could you please call me so that I could pay over the phone or advise of your bank account details so that I can do a transfer.

Thanks, for the wonderful customer service. I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,

Hi Guys,

Just wanted to say thank you for supplying such a great product. I really enjoyed building it (even though it took me three days) and my 3 and a half year old girl (Emerson) loves it. I can’t stand painting but the final product was worth it as you can see by the pics. It adds a new dimension to our back yard and to Emerson’s play habits.

Thanks again

Louis Cheeseman,

The cubby has turned out exceptionally well, and it is unbelievably well made. We searched high and low in South Australia, but found nothing that compares even close to the high quality of yours. The original price at first glance seems high but once you see how many and add up the extra items in it, they are very affordable and work out the same price as most others. I will definitely be recommending you to anyone in search of a cubby for their little ones.

I have attached a photo of ours, the kids are busy playing and now want to go camping in it. We have fitted large interior and exterior lights just in case they can talk Dad into it.

Thank you once again
