Every time we have a play date, the one thing my daughter and her friends always ask to play with is her circus tent. I set it up and in they disappear. They often have tea parties in the tent and I supply biscuits as it pleases them no end. But otherwise they just stay in there with a few select toys and all I hear is squeals of delight. I think it’s the whole idea of having a hideout, a place where the adults are unlikely to come that really appeals to them. All children love this kind of play and I even remember loving it as a kid where me and my brother would make tents out of sheets and chairs and play under there for hours. I still think the best way to play ‘tents’ is to make your own hideout but if you want a ready made hideout then I love these ones by Such Great Heights.
From Australia, these Wonder Tents are covered in lovely geometric fabrics, plain fabrics or in some retro inspired ones which are my favourites. They fold up and come with their own carry case so can be stored and moved around easily. Which kid wouldn’t delight in owning one of these? Such Great Heights also make some adventure capes which would add to the whole pretend play fun but I think it’s these tents that are the stars of the show.
