Benefits of buying a cubby house on layby

Why buy a cubby house on layby? Essentially, it means you can get your kid's cubby house sooner rather than later. So, now you don't have to save for a cubby house; simply layby the cubby house instead. 

With KidzShack, there are payment options whether you require a longer or shorter payoff period, and there is something for parents on any budget. Your cubby house will make its way to your place while the payments come out of your account one by one instead of leaving your bank balance in a sorry state, a win-win, right? 

Laybys on KidzShack cubby houses offer a host of financial benefits, including:

  • Convenience

You can buy your favourite cubby house when you know you don't currently have the total amount at hand, or you'll receive the money for payment at a later stage.

  • Budgeting

Our laybys let you plan deposits and settlement payments so that you can budget for your cubby house for Christmas 2022.

  • Easier to shop

With just an upfront deposit needed for any of our range of 12 wooden cubby houses and our modern plastic range in bright colours, you can shop for the perfect cubby house for your space and your child without the worry of current budget limits.

  • Buy something that you wouldn't have been able to afford

Laybys let you choose and purchase KidzShack cubby houses that may be a fantastic fit for your kids and space but are a bit out of your immediate price range.

  • Buy a gift for your kids right now

Instead of waiting and weighing up your options as your child grows out of their most imaginative phase, you can secure a gift immediately with your deposit. 

  • Allows you to pay off over a longer period

Don't worry about large immediate down payments or short payment periods; with your cubby house on layby, you can pay off your kid's new favourite play space over an extended period.

Make shopping for the ideal space to let your kid's imagination run-free easier with layby on our cubby houses. Plus, you only need a $150 deposit!

Is it worth buying a cubby house?

Parents who want to nurture creativity and imagination will certainly find a cubby house or fort worth it! A cubby house boasts so many learning and play opportunities for kids, and cubby houses provide entertainment for hours. Invest in a cubby house for your kids, and you will most likely end up with some more rest and relaxation time for yourself too. 

Not to mention, in our ever-increasing digital world, kids lose the motivation to go and play outside when they are bored or have free time. In fact, new research found one in three kids do not spend time outdoors more than twice a week. Who wants to go outside and think or use their imagination when they could just watch a glowing screen, right? 

Outdoor play gives children the opportunity to explore, develop and hone observational skills, and learn to appreciate nature and their surroundings. Through regularly playing and time spent outside in their KidzShack Cubby House, they are more likely to notice the leaves change colour or the presence of new and exciting birdlife in their backyard. 

A KidzShack Cubby House or Fort also helps build your little one's confidence as they solve problems and improve their motor skills.

Ultimately, a cubby house truly unlocks a whole new world for growing kids!

What age are cubby houses for?

We advise cubby houses for children from 3 years and older. KidzShack Cubby Houses come in various sizes, including cubby houses and forts to suit any age.

Where should you place your cubby house?

For cubby house placement, we suggest putting your new cubby house on pavers, concrete or slabs outside. Be sure not to place your cubby house directly onto a grassy area as the grass retains water and can cause moisture rot.

Do the cubby houses come as flat packs?

Our range of wooden cubby houses come in a flat pack for easy assembly at home. The panels are already prepared and will require assembly by two adults. 

We have asked our customers how long it takes them, and the average is no more than two and a half hours to assemble a KidzShack Cubby House. All you really need is two sets of adult hands and a drill with a Phillips head. Encourage and expand your child's imagination with pretend play in our range of cubby houses, including pirate shacks, clubhouses, spaces with built-in mud kitchens, and so much more.

Put one on layby today and browse our range of cubby houses and forts here!
