When we first bought the tent for our kids , they where around 5. They liked it a lot. But we did not see the excitement which we expected (initially). They started playing with it ( or rather in it) and slowly it became their every day play activity. So let us look at Tent house for kids or the Kids Tent
Tent house for kids – A real fun for kids
The interest it generated after some weeks was so much that they were not willing to part with it. It was quite big (the one which we bought) and was eating up some space so after 18 months are so, we thought of packing it up and putting it back. And then we realized how much it has become a part of their everyday activity. We unpacked it back and it was their play set for next 2 years at least.
Now they are grown up and don’t play with it any more. We were cleaning our house when we saw it again and it got us thinking , what was special about the tent. So started doing some research on this.
We would say, it is a very underrated play item. It’s an excellent tool to engage kids in imaginative play.
Whether they are in there alone or with us parents or with their friends, all these helps in develop their emotional and social skills. A very good thing for emotional development.

Wow, so may things can be done with this wonderful piece of play. I guess we missed doing the last 2 points 🙁
