Named after the house built around Wendy in J. M. Barrie's play Peter Pan.
The name for a toy house large enough for children to play in comes from J.M. Barrie's play Peter Pan (1904). In the play, which Barrie turned into the novel Peter Pan and Wendy in 1911, Peter and the Lost Boys build a small structure for Wendy to live in following their flight to Neverland, where she keeps house for them.
