My children never get tired of imaginative play. I tire of constantly setting up a make-shift cubby house of a sheet pegged over the dining table, but my kids – never. What we need is something I won’t have to awkwardly explain to visitors that can remain set up for the kids – like a teepee!
I admit it’s not all my idea, Babyology reader Kylee contacted us for a childrens’ teepee recommendation and when I saw these beauties from An Angel At My Table, my heart was set a flutter. I know hours of fun will be spent in one of these by my youngest and a bonus for me is at the end of the day I can gather all his wares and discreetly hide them behind the velcro tab door enclosure, ready for the next day of play.
Each teepee is made from heavy duty cotton drill fabric with a solid natural timber frame. There’s plenty of room inside for a couple of friends of the human variety or a bounty of the soft cuddly toy variety! In the unfortunate event that it does have to be taken down, these charming teepees come with a coordinating bag for compact storage and keeping your teepee protected.
For US-based readers, there’s a great Etsy store selling Hip Huts for groovy fabric teepee options! As a lover of all things girly, I can’t see past the Red Fox Hip Hut (US$145) what a stunning print for kids to surround themselves in for endless play.
An Angel At My Table teepee is available in five colours and will set you back $229 plus $9.95 delivery to any Australian address.
