Clever Parents Create Amazing Cubby Hacks From $199 Kmart Cubby House

Clever parents have been praised online for their amazing cubby hacks created from a $199 Kmart cubby house.

In the lead up to Christmas, parents have gone awesomely creative with Kmart’s cubby house as they make an incredible makeover out of the $199 children’s toy, which has now become one of the retailer’s best selling toys this season.

The cubby house is just made up of plain wood but parents have really used their creativity as they colour it and accessorise it with flowers, curtains, and doorbells to their children’s (and people on social media’s) delight.

Mummy blogger Kyree Harvey, from Perth, has made her daughter’s cubby into a Christmas-themed house, which she painted white with a red door and Christmas decorations. She has posted a step-by-step how-to on her blog for those who want to recreate her cubby.


The Kmart Grapevine Instagram page also posted a photo of another lovely cubby house that was painted white and transformed into a mini-cafe, with a kitchen, a menu and barstools.


Alicia Adams, an interior stylist from Perth, also did a cubby makeover for her two children, using a spray paint gun to match the house to her kids’ outdoor furniture.

Sydney publicist Roxy Jacenko also jumped on the bandwagon and painted her cubby house pale blue for her children Pixie and Hunter Curtis.

A Kmart spokeswoman told that they are ‘very humbled’ to see their product ‘hacked and personalised’ by their customers. “Their creativity and love of the product is very inspiring,” she said.
