Bust open your piggy bank because there’s a Mister Zimi cubby house now

Posted in Toys.

Castle and Cubby make the best playhouses in Australia, and they’ve recently been rolling out a clever project where they partner with high profile families to create custom cubbies to suit their unique style.

Cutest cubby going ’round!

The latest in these clever mash-ups involves the family behind brilliantly bold fashion label Mister Zimi.

Castle and Cubby have joined forces with the Mister Zimi folk to create a cubby that mimics the family’s gorgeous Byron Bay home.

Photos shared on the Castle and Cubby website detail the customisations that make this playhouse as brilliant and bold as the gang who get to play in it.

“We set about creating a cubby house that mimicked the bungalow’s architectural styling and feel,” C&C says.

“We created a larger size cubby with a slightly overhanging and angled roof, with the main point of difference the addition of the framed awning over the windows and upright posts that mirrored the Bungalow.”

“To finish it off we added in a brand new bi-fold window concept, which we LOVE, and one of our favourite cubby features the barn style doors of course (this one with Z bracing for Zimi).”

The cubby was installed on decking the Zimi family had purpose-built.

Introducing THE MINI ZIMI CUBBY 🙈 a little while ago Kellie from @castleandcubby and I had an idea to create the perfect outdoor play room for my 3 kids. We used our guest house bungalow at home as inspiration and did a mini version in our garden for the kids. It was so fun stepping out of my comfort zone and working on this space with Kellie. Anyone who has visited our place has been blown away by it and so have their kids. It has honestly changed our kids lives and the way all 3 from ages 2 to 7 interact with each other. Head over to @castleandcubby to read my interview about our cubby, kids, Bali and byron bay and also to grab yourself one of these amazing spaces! Honestly could not love it more! Zoe xx 🐒

I absolutely ADORE the new Mini Zimi Bungalow Cubby we created for Zoe Paul of @misterzimi 😍 This space is so bright and with new features like bi-fold windows and the framed awning over the front it is totally ready for you to add your mark . I styled this space with the kids own toys and bits and bobs from their bedrooms along with some new wooden toys from @mytoykingdom to stock the internal kitchen. The kids were so stoked to have a fully stocked kitchen and from all accounts have not stopped playing in there . If you want to hear about how this space has enriched the lives of the Zimi family please head to our bio link to get the inside info from Zoe herself. Zoe also chatted to us about raising kids in Bali, moving home and family life . #castleandcubby #misterzimi #cubby #cubbyhouse #childhood
