Cubby houses are such a wonderful part of childhood. Did you have a cubby? I remember having cubbies under trees and made indoors from blankets over chairs. Mr Recycled has made some amazing cubbies over the years for our boys, including a 2 storey fort with a sandpit underneath, and Maxwell’s current cubby made from recycled materials in the main. Recycled timbers such as pallets, have become hot property, and this clever husband and wife team, Jonathan & Jade from Little Hipster Kubby, have taken that a step further and made upcycled pallet cubbies their business. It all started with a challenge that Jade gave Jonathan – they needed a chicken house. Jonathan wanted to make one and Jade wanted to buy one. So she agreed to him making it, but gave him the challenge to build a chicken house out of recycled timber.
It was a success and they both enjoyed it, as did their children, so much so they played in the chicken house more than their cubby!! That gave them the idea to build a cubby from recycled timber and they haven’t stop from there.
They now have a range of styles with many more to come! The current styles are Cafe, Market, Batcave, Saloon and Fairy. They can customise a cubby to your requirements to inspire your children’s creativity.
Each cubby is made from recycled timber and the sizes vary with custom sizes available.
