It's the Kmart cubby house that's flying out the door and proving to be one of the retailer's top-selling offerings for Christmas 2017.

At just $199 the Kmart cubby house certainly eclipses many timber cubbies on price point alone, but the real reason it's such a hot-ticket item is that parents are going to town renovating and styling them into mini dream homes.

Perth mum Alicia showed off her knack with a spray paint gun and styling skills when she unveiled this stunning cubby for her children Hudson and Harlow.

The cubby hack causing the most buzz is this Christmas-themed transformation by Instagram star Kyree Harvey for her daughter Alaska.

This one has been turned into a cafe by Perth mum Sarah Webb for daughter Airlie's second birthday.

Even PR maven Roxy Jacenko is in on the act, hiring tradies to do the work on the Kmart cubby for her kids Pixie and Hunter.
