The term ‘Wendy Houses’ is predominantly used in the UK, and takes its origins from J. M. Barrie’s play Peter Pan. In the story, a character named Wendy Darling is shot with a bow and arrow by mistake and consequently a small house is built around her for protection.
A prop ‘Wendy House’ was created for the first stage production of the play in 1904, which led to toy manufacturers creating replicas for children. Today, Wendy Houses are commonplace in gardens and enjoyed by children around the world.
