We love Dens at the Ana Mum Diary. The only problem, is they always end up collapsing. I say this as I seem to have to make them every other day, so I’ve become a bit of an expert!
I was considering buying for Christmas some of those poles, where you can make dens anywhere, but wasn’t wholly convinced on their strength. I also thought it makes sense (even if it’s just for the sake of my back) to have a more permanent den.
So when we offered to review a canvas tent in the shape of a castle I thought it would be a fantastic way of creating a den area for Miss A and Miss N.
You can see the range of tents and wigwams HERE from their online store.. The Fairy Princess Play Tent is priced at £79.99, and is a hexagonal turret shaped tent with a flag, windows and door.
It arrived the next day(impressive), and Tall Dad set about assembling it…
A frame of wooden poles and plastic connectors, as you can see in the above photograph. It has screws that you need to put in either side of the connection too. Tall Dad found it really simple to put up. He was very impressed with the quality and strength of it. It takes a lot for Tall Dad to be impressed, so I do not include this lightly in the review.
Once you have fixed this together you need to ease on the fabric cover.
Here is the finished tent (and princess’)
It really is the perfect size, Miss N is very tall for her age, and so I was a little worried, that she wouldn’t very comfortably fit in it. In fact to illustrate the fact, here is a shot I took where even tall Dad got in!
It had been used so much in the three days that we have had it, it has been incredible!
It’s really sparked their imagination, I have sat and listened to them giggling and whispering about dragons and fairies. I have lost them for ages whilst they play hide and seek. It’s a fabulous addition to our house.
A big thank you to Garden Games, for allowing us to review it!
Now I’m off to hide in there and scare Tall Dad ;).
Thank you for reading
