The kids playhouse, also known as a Wendy house which is a team that was probable used a little more in previous years, is a small plastic house or tent suitable for children to play. By design it encourages them to use their imagination while playing alone or with other children. Playing with other children is a great way to teach your child how to share and socials with others which helps to prepare them for when they start school.
A Wendy house is a small play house for children, large enough for one or more children to enter. Size and solidity can vary from a toddler-high cheap and cheerful plastic kit to something resembling a small garden shed. Usually there is one room, a doorway with a window on either side and little or no furniture other than that which the children improvise.
The original was built for Wendy Darling in J. M. Barrie's play, Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up. Wendy was shot by the Lost Boy Tootles after arriving in Neverland, so Peter Pan and the Lost Boys built a small house around her where she had fallen. It was inspired by the wash-house behind Barrie's childhood home in Kirriemuir and first appeared in story form in The Little White Bird in which fairies build a house around Mamie Mannering — the prototype for Wendy — so protecting her from the cold.
A prop house was created by Barrie for the first stage production of the play in 1904. It was constructed like a tent so that it could be erected quickly during a song which Wendy starts with
I wish I had a darling house The littlest ever seen, With funny little red walls And roof of mossy green.
John's hat was used as a chimney and a slipper was used as a door knocker. Toy manufacturers soon created replicas of the stage Wendy house, which have become a standard toy found in British gardens ever since
Today, they are also known as cubby houses or Kids Playhouse aswell as a Wendy House and they are fantastic at entertaining educating children all over the world. The houses often help the children using them imagine various scenarios and through imaginations they are able to visualise themselves in a future adult world and hence they help them in building their characters positively.
Character building is mostly brought about by the aspect of role playing by the kids which is highly prevalent when children use Wendy houses. This is because the house acts as the pretend house to kids. The kids most favourite tales, games or interaction with other children is brought about by the Wendy houses. The ancient Childrens Wendy House was build by using metal rods which had fabric coverings and they were made in a style similar to tents but the today's Wendy houses are build using plastic materials and wooden materials as opposed to metal ones. There is a Kids Wooden Playhouse range available
They can be found in different designs, sizes and attractive colours and they can be placed either indoors or in the garden. The Wendy Houses have doors, windows, and some have furniture which make them to appear more realistic to children. Some Wendy houses can be used to hold birthday parties, special parties and events such as social gatherings. They improve on children's social skills, creativity, mental and physical health, imagination, and not forgetting self-confidence.
