      My daughter loves a princess tent that my sister-in-law got her for her birthday one year. However, I think if she saw some of the princess tents on here, she'd wet her pants with excitement! I must admit that I wished I'd had that ultimate playland play hut when I was a kid. That thing looks awesome!

      My kids and grandkids loved forts and tents. My grandkids sometimes made their own tepees outside! I can even remember making forts from bedsheets or blankets over chairs or outside over the clothesline when I was a kid! I really like those Fortamajig Connectables! Now, I would have loved to have those!

      We mostly just draped a sheet over a card table, or even the dining room table, but my boys would have loved to have some of these very cool play tents and forts!

      Crazy Forts is a great idea but its no good !! Balls are ok but sticks are weak and breaks easily plus once u get weight on structure the balls unplug from the sticks ... its no good unless you have kids that do not move around at all .... Regular kids move a lot and push pull hit the structure which will eventually break some sticks ....

      A child's imagination transforms the unlikeliest objects to wonderful playthings. If they were to have indoor / outdoor tents and tunnels like these, it would be nothing short of bliss for them. Colorful and cheerful lens.

      The kids have a small purchased tent that came with a crawl tube. So they like to connect that tent with a tent made by using blankets and a folding table. They also love to go tent camping in a big tent with the family during the summer months. Great assortment. Well done lens.

      These are awesome! We did the blankets over the chair backs. Kids just don't know how good they have it. With the tents you have featured, they won't have to worry about sagging in the middle or an adult taking their "support" because they want a place to sit down:)
