Play tent for the style conscious


Kids always love a cubby house. For children, there’s great appeal in having their own private little space. The impromptu cubby house made from blankets and chairs or a massive cardboard box is perfectly adequate but let’s face it – how long do you want to look at blankets draped over your lounge room furniture?

That’s where the stylish Hippie Tipi tent saves the day. Danish designed, but inspired by native American teepees, the Hippie Tipi comes in three beautifully bright colour combinations that will appeal to kids as well as adults (blue/green, pink/orange, multi).

The tent can be set up indoors or outdoors; kids can create their own den in the lounge room during winter or enjoy a bit of play camping outdoors during warmer weather.

Each tent comes with its own bag and can be easily rolled up and stored away when it’s pack up time (although given they’re so easy on the eye, you may just let the kids leave it set up!). The Hippie Tipi is made out of heavy-duty, dirt-repellent cotton and is machine washable.

Hippie Tipi tents are priced at US$199 and can be purchased from Vessel or New Zealand’s Plush Toys.
