Wendy Houses

A Wendy House can be used as a play house, tool shed, dog kennel, garden cabin, staff quarter, security hut, office and much more…

In South Africa, Wendy Houses are normally pre-fabricated timber sheds which are delivered by a small truck and erected in the back garden as either a play area for children or for the storage of garden tools.

A Wendy House will give your child hours of enjoyment and a place for them to create their own world. It is also a practical structure that will house just about anything. And with a little imagination, customised touches can be added to create a unique and special environment.

The name ‘Wendy House’ originates from the character of Wendy Darling in J. M. Barrie’s play, Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up. Wendy was injured soon after her arrival in Neverland, so Peter Pan and the Lost Boys build a small house around her where she had fallen. A Wendy house was created by Barrie himself for the first stage production of the play in 1904.
