Wigwam Play Tent Review

I was delighted when Playhouses.co.uk got in contact with me and asked if I would like to do a review as they do a fantastic range of children's outdoor products. I decided to chose the Wigwam Play Tent because I had a feeling Ben would love it and I wasn't wrong. As soon as I took the box out of it's packaging and my little toddler caught sight of the picture of the Wigwam on it he was impressed, in fact he was so delighted he started hugging the box.

My plan to wait until my husband got home to set it up quickly went out the window as Ben begged me to get it built. I have to say I was very pleased with how easy it was to put together and thankfully there were no small fiddly pieces for Ben to grab and run off with or me to lose. To put it together you join two sets of six poles in the middle with plastic connector pieces, thread these through elastic loops inside the canvas cover and slot into the foot holders at the bottom. A rope is then threaded through holes in the top poles which are separated by wooden beads which you tie and hey presto the Wigwam is ready to be erected. It really is as simple as that!

The quality of the canvas is superb, it is made from a thick, hard wearing material which is sure to withstand a lot of use and not tear or rip easily - something which is so important when you have a boisterous toddler. I love the pictures and designs on it as does Ben who spent ages walking around it pointing out all the animals and different colours on it. It really is the perfect hide away place for a little kid as Ben demonstrated by grabbing his rocket, colouring book and crayons and my iPad and then shutting the doors which fasten easily with velcro while popping out every few minutes to say boo! There is plenty of room inside the wigwam and both Ben and I could fit comfortably inside along with a collection of cuddly toys and he was able to stand up so it is a great height. We put it up inside but I can see this being a fantastic little play house outside for Ben in the summer. Another great thing about the Wigwam is that it is as easy to take down as put up and stores neatly inside the box which it comes in so it takes up very little space when not in use.

So that's where my iPad got to...

The Wigwam is available to purchase online form Playhouses.co.uk and is priced at £49.99 which in my opinion is very reasonable given the quality of the product, the size and the ease of construction. I can highly recommend this product - Ben has already had so much fun playing inside it and there is definitely lots more to come.
