      I think that’s a term from the UK for a kid’s playhouse. We don’t use that term in the U.S. so I could see why you were confused.

      I enjoy these differences.

    They’re named for the Wendy of ‘Wendy Darling in J. M. Barrie’s play, Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up.’ A good history is in wikipedia, naturally:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wendy_house

    One of the best I know of is a remarkable structure at the Breakers in Newport:

    https://digital.library.cornell.edu/catalog/ss:3873879

    It survives from the first breakers, designed by the famous and influential Victorian architecture firm, Peabody and Stearns. A monument to the Queen Anne Style, with major Shingle Style influences, or perhaps the other way around, the mansion burned to the ground in a spectacular fire on November 25th, 1892. However, the children’s playhouse survived. It is a perfect miniature version of its burned parent.
    As a result of the fire, Cornelius Vanderbilt II commissioned a ‘fire-proof’ house from the architect most favored by the Vanderbilts, Richard Morris Hunt. I believe that the second Breakers employs a great deal of concrete.
    Another great miniature is in the grounds of Victoria and Albert’s summer house, disguised as a large palace by the sea, Osborne House. Its named the Swiss cottage, and was constructed in the mid-1850’s at 3/4 scale. It survives virtually as the royal couple’s children left it, with a miniature kitchen and it’s own museum for the treasures the children collected:

    A surprising number of others survive.

      I always love the playhouse at the Breakers. Unfortunately I’ve never been inside it. But I do hear it does get opened up once in a while.
